Common Eye Defects and Corrections


 This is also called short-sightedness. A myopic patient cannot view distant objects clearly because the image is focused on the retina.  This can be corrected by use of concave lenses.


This defect can also be called long-sightedness. A long sighted patient cannot view nearby objects clearly. The image is focused behind the retina. This is as a result of weak refractive power of the lens and can be corrected by wearing convex lens.


 When light rays do not have a single focus on the retina where some will focus in front and some behind. This is caused by a non-uniform curvature of the cornea.

It can be corrected by the use of cylindrical glasses. In this condition when viewing a pattern of lines, those in one direction appear sharp while those in the other direction appear blurred.


This type of defect is common in aged people especially those in their fifties. It is an advanced form of hyperopia in which affected individuals find it very difficult to see long distant images. By using reading glasses with convex lenses, presbyopia can be corrected.

Types of Eye Diseases and their causes

Age-related Macular Degeneration: As one gets matured in age, the retina of the eye called the macular begins to experience some physical disturbances.

Diabetic Macular Edema (DME): This occur as a result of much accumulation of fluid in the macular tissue leading to blurred vision.

Cataracts: This is one of the popular eye defect that we all know. In this defect, the lens of the eye becomes opaque thereby not giving a clear vision. Cataracts are commonly removed via surgeries but we have a product that can help you to clear cataracts.

Colour Blindness: This is the inability of a person to sense coloured object clearly, people who suffer this defect view colour differently from one with a healthy eye condition. It is a colour vision deficiency.

Bulging Eye: This can also be called proptosis, a patient with this type of defect usually have a swollen eye. This happens as a result of swellings of the fats, tissues and muscles behind the eye.

CMV Retinitis 

This is a viral infection to the retina which occur as a result of disorders in the immune system. Example of immune disorder may include AIDS

Crossed Eye: This is the misalignment of the eye at the same point in the same direction. It is also called strabismus.

Glaucoma: This occurs when there is a damage to the optic nerves as a result of pressure on the eye. Glaucoma is a disease that is caused by increased intraocular pressure that results from a defect in the drainage system of the eye. This can lead to irreversible damage to the optic nerve and retinal fibres and if left untreated can lead to permanent vision loss.

Keratoconus: the cornea in the eye is usually round in shape, when it turns to a thin and round shape it results in the defect known as keratoconus.

Ocular Hypertension: this is when the pressure of the eye exceeds it normal range.
