Age-related Macular Degeneration

Age-related macular degeneration is one of the other common conditions in New Jersey that we treat. This is a condition that occurs when the center portion of the retina is destroyed. This portion of the eye is known as the macula. The macula helps you see objects in detail, drive a car, and read. It also helps you recognize colors and faces.

Chalazion

A chalazion is also known as a stye. It is a small bump that is found on the eyelid. Swelling, soreness, eyelid redness, and irritation are some of the common signs of a stye.

Hypertension

Hypertension is most commonly referred to as high blood pressure. High blood pressure is not only a chronic condition but it puts you at risk for a number of other conditions. People who have high blood pressure are at risk for developing heart disease, kidney failure, and stroke.

Conjunctivitis

Conjunctivitis occurs when the outer membrane of the eye becomes infected. It is referred to as pink eye. Conjunctivitis can be caused by a viral or bacterial infection. This condition is contagious.

Blepharitis

Blepharitis is a condition that causes inflammation of the eyelids. There is a gland in the eyelid that produces oil. If too much oil is produced, then this condition can be a result. It may also be caused by an allergic reaction or bacterial infection. It can cause irritation and burning of the eyelids.

Amblyopia

Babies do not have perfect vision when they are born. Vision develops as the child grows. If the sight does not develop normally, then a person will develop amblyopia. This is also known as lazy eye.

Keratoconus

Keratoconus is a condition that occurs when the cornea thins. Daily activities will become more difficult as the condition progresses. That is why it is important to get this condition diagnosed and treated as soon as possible.

Presbyopia

Presbyopia is the loss of one’s ability to focus on nearby objects. It typically occurs in people who are over the age of 40. It occurs because the lens becomes less flexible as you age.
