Other Common Conditions

Our professionals at Campus Eye Group in Hamilton, NJ are trained to diagnose and treat eye conditions from common to rare and mild to severe. Our main eye disease treatment programs are to help correct conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, and common vision correction needs. However, we also realize that there are several other common conditions people in and around New Jersey that we can treat including the following:

  • Ocular Hypertension
  • Macular degeneration
  • Uveitis
  • Amblyopia
  • Conjunctivitis
  • Stye
  • Blepharitis
  • Ocular rosacea
  • Keratoconus

Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Age-related macular degeneration is one of the common eye diseases in New Jersey that we treat on a regular basis. This is a condition that occurs when the center portion of the retina experiences decay, leading to mild to severe vision loss in the center of the vision. The center of the eye is known as the macula. The macula helps you see objects in detail as well as experience the world around you from being able to drive to different places as well as take care of your personal hygiene. It also helps you recognize colors and faces.

Macular degeneration is often age-related and irreversible but might be able to be corrected with early diagnosis to prevent severe vision loss in the center of your vision.

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. Stye eye does not often cause distorted vision or other vision problems but can be unsightly or uncomfortable. Our eye surgeons can remove chalazion problems if they do not go away on their own.

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.

Hypertension, whatever the root cause, puts pressure on the highly sensitive blood vessels in the eyes and optic nerves, in addition to other risk factors this condition poses for heart health and general well-being.

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 but treatable with antibiotics or antiviral medication.

Blepharitis

Blepharitis is a condition that causes inflammation of the eyelids. It may be caused by an allergic reaction or bacterial infection, as well as issues with the natural oil production of the skin on the eyelids and around the eyes. Blepharitis commonly causes irritation and burning of the eyelids.

Amblyopia

Amblyopia is commonly called lazy eye. It’s a condition that can develop early on in development as a baby, where the brain and eye (usually just one) don’t connect properly, leading to lack of binocular focus, poor depth perception, blurred vision, and other symptoms. Treatment options we provide include special contact lenses, medicated eye drops, eye patches, or in some cases, surgery.

Keratoconus

Keratoconus is a condition that occurs when the cornea thins. The thinning tissue can then warp outwards, causing refractive errors that lead to light not focusing correctly or being carried on the optic nerve in the right way. Treatments include intra-ocular lens implants, corneal transplantation, or special contact lenses.
