Eye diseases

The eye can be affected by a host of diseases. Each anatomical part of the eye can present a disorder and cause an ocular problem. It is important for patients to have a clear understanding of the nature of their ocular problems in order to take good care of their vision health. This also allows managing a disease better and detecting signs of deterioration. The patient who is informed and advised has a better chance of receiving timely treatment and is more likely to feel reassured and to adhere to treatment.
