  • Uveitis and Ocular InflammationUveitis and Ocular Inflammation

    Ocular inflammation is swelling and inflammation of the eye tissue. The part of the eye that is commonly affected is the middle layer of the eye known as the uvea. Inflammation of the uvea is known as uveitis.

  • CataractCataract

    A cataract is a condition which causes clouding of the lens in the eye resulting in blurry vision. The lens is situated behind the iris, the dark portion of the eye, and is not visible.

  • Diabetic Macular Oedema Diabetic Macular Oedema

    Macular oedema refers to the swelling or thickening of the macula, the central part of the retina or the light receptive tissue of the eye. Diabetic macular oedema is a complication of diabetes that occurs when fluid leaks from retinal blood vessels and accumulates in the macula of the eye.

  • Watery EyeWatery Eye

    A watery eye or epiphora is generally seen in young babies and older people. In this condition, tears accumulate in the eyes due to a blockage in one or both tear ducts. As a result, excessive tears trickle down the face instead of draining from the tear ducts.

  • Tear Duct ObstructionTear Duct Obstruction

    The tear duct is a membranous canal that drains the tears from the eyes into the nasal cavity.  Blocked tear ducts also are known as dacryostenosis or congenital lacrimal duct obstruction is a common condition in infants that may affect one or both eyes.

  • Vein OcclusionVein Occlusion

    The retina is the layer of tissue present at the back of the eye. It changes the light that enters the eye into nerve signals, which are transmitted to the brain for interpretation.

  • Temporal ArteritisTemporal Arteritis

    Temporal arteries are the blood vessels around the temple (side of the head behind the eyes) that supply blood to the head and brain. Temporal arteritis is a condition in which these blood vessels are damaged or inflamed.

  • WET AMDWET AMD

    A small oval spot on the retina (tissue on the back of the eye) called the macula is responsible for sharp, central vision.

  • Traumatic IritisTraumatic Iritis

    The human eye gets its colour from a circular pigmented membrane called the iris. Made up of muscular fibres, the iris controls the amount of light entering through the pupil or centre of the eye, to give you clear vision.
