Eyes are invaluable sensory organs. However, different diseases can harm their functioning. The Laurentians Eye Institute (LEI) is dedicated to preventing, diagnosing and treating these diseases. It is often necessary to monitor the course of a disease closely in order to intervene in a timely fashion. Under this section of the EIL website, you will find useful, concise information on the different treatments for eye conditions.
Glaucoma is an eye disease in which the optic nerve is permanently and irreversibly damaged (structural damage).
Retinal disease treatment
The retina is made up of multiple layers of nervous cells lining the back of the eye (also referred to as the ocular fundus).
The lacrimal system is made of several components involved in the production of tears, their distribution across the cornea (anterior surface of the eye), and their drainage.
The eyelids are best known for their protective role against light and particles.
Cataracts involve clouding or opacification of the eye’s natural lens, called the “crystalline lens”.
The cornea is the circular transparent part at the front and centre of the eye. It is a continuation of the sclera, the white part of the eye.
Eye anatomy and how it works
It is recommended that you become familiar with the structures of the eye in order to gain a better understanding of its function and pathologies.
