Refractive Error

It is a major cause of treatable blindness world wide. Refractive error is a condition where eye cannot focus clear images from the outside world. This causes blurred vision and in some cases it can be so severe that it causes visual impairment. Types of refractive error:

  1. Myopia (short sighted) far away objects are not seen clearly
  2. Hypermetropia (long sighted) close by objects are not seen clearly
  3. Astigmatism distorted vision due to irregularly curved cornea

It can be easily treated by corrective glasses/ contact lenses or Laser surgery.

Amblyopia Therapy

Amblyopia (lazy eye) is reduced vision due to abnormal visual development, more often seen in one eye. It develops generally from birth to 7 years of age. It occurs when there is undetected difference in visual disturbance between the two eyes. The weaker eye if not treated timely, can develop amblyopia.
