Eye Diseases and the various treatments available today: Excessive usage of digital technology has increased the amount of strain on the eyes . There are some natural ways to improve vision like eye exercises, better diet and lifestyle changes. External eye disorders that affect people are Trichiasis, Poliosis, Madarosis, Infestations, Infections and various other external eye disorders can be treated with simple treatment techniques. Retinoblastoma as the name suggests is the cancer of the retina present at the rear end of the eye ball. It usually develops starts before birth when retinoblasts do not stop diving to develop into retinal cells. Eye allergies like can be triggered by simple tihings like pollen and can be caused when the body's immune system is sensitized and overreacts. Causes of eye diseases include ageing to exposure to UV radiation. Prevention of eye diseases is possible by making changes in lifestyle and better access to eye care. The various eye disorders being discussed will be Usher Syndrome, Eyelid Inflammation/Blepharitis, Lazy Eye/Amblyopia, Eye Strain, Black Eye, Eyelid Swelling, Mascular degeneration and cataracts, Dry Eyes, Conjunctivitis/Pinkeye, Blindness, Colour and Night blindnes.

Cornea is the outermost layer of the eye. It is clear, dome shaped and covers the front of the eye. Corneal disease is a serious condition that leads to clouding, distortion, scarring and eventually blindness. The major Corneal diseases include allergies, conjuctivitis, corneal infections, dry eye, fuch's dystrophy, Corneal Dystrophies, Herpes Zoster, Iridocorneal endothelial syndrome, keratoconus, Lattice Dystrophy, Ocular Herpes, Stevens-Johnson Syndrome. Tests conducted to detect structural and functional abnormalities of the cornea help surgeons in the investigation of the corneal diseases. Some of these abnormalities include alterations in topography, transparency change in endothelial cell morphology and function, loss of epithelial integrity, loss of sensation, opacification, and vascularization. Corneal ulcer is an open sore on the cornea. Causes of this sore range from infection to physical/chemical trauma to over/misuse of contact lenses. Herpes simplex virus (HSV) keratitis is the most frequent cause of corneal blindness in the United States and the most common source of infectious blindness in the Western world. Keratitis Medicamentosa is a condition developed due to the topical application of medications. The corneal epithelium may slough and may lead to corneal scarring and vascularization. Most corneal degenerations are caused due to inherited diseases such as keratoconus and Fuch's endothelial dystrophy. Recurrent corneal erosion is a condition characterized by the recurrent breakdown of corneal epithelium. This is caused due to the disturbance of the epithelial basement membrane. Corneal transplantation, also known as corneal grafting, is a surgical procedure where a damaged or diseased cornea is replaced by donated corneal tissue. The miscellaneous corneal diseases include Refractive errors, Allergies, Infections and Injuries.

Retina are the light sensitive cells located at the rear end of the eye. They send light sensitive information to the brain. The most common retinal disorders include Macular degeneration, Diabetic eye disease, Retinal detachment, Retinoblastoma, Macular pucker, Macular hole, Floaters etc. Age related macular degeneration is the major cause of loss of vision in people over 60 in America. Reasons include death of cells in the macula part of the eye due to abnormal growth of blood vessels under the macula or the slow breakdown of the cells in the macula. Myopic macular degeneration is a condition where the eyeball grows and stretches, it may cause degeneration of or scarring in the layers under the retina causing loss of central vision. These cracks can serve as a passage for abnormal blood vessels to grow under the retina. Diabetic retinopathy and retino vascular disease are diseases involving damage to the blood vessels in the retina. Color vision defects are conditions that effect the perception of color in indiciduals. Retina degeneration is the deterioration of the retina caused by the progressive and eventual death of the cells of the retina. Ocular Oncology referes to the malignant intraocular tumors and retinoblastoma. Retinal Vascular tumors include neoplastic hemangioblastomas and the cavernous hemangiomas. Hemangioblastomas as sporadic and solitary tumores. Characterizing the mechanisms of the retinal cells in human and animal models helps further the understanding of Cell and Molecular Biology of the Retina. This can form the basis of diagnosis and treatment of various retinal diseases.

Glaucoma is a group of progressive degenerative disorders of the optic nerves of the eye. This can result in vision loss and prevention is only possible if detected and treated in early stages. The etiology of the disease needs better understanding. Intracranial pressure is proposed by most scientists as the main cause of Glaucoma. The optic nerve is a part of the central nervous system and is one of the major causes of Glaucoma. Angle Recession Glaucoma is charaterized by variable degree of cleavage between the longitudinal fibers of the ciliary muscle caused due to a blunt trauma to ocule of the eye.
