Conjunctivitis or pink eye is the redness and inflammation of the conjunctiva. It is a small lining which covers the white part of the eyeball. Pink eye is very contagious and can spread by coming in contact with eye the eye discharge of someone who is infected or suffering with pink eye or conjunctivitis. Symptoms: Redness
Your doctor will most likely conduct a comprehensive eye examination, which may include shining a very bright light into your eyes to check out the reaction of your pupil. Your ophthalmologist may also instill diagnostic eye drops to evaluate the location in the nerve pathway that problems may be happening. You may or may not be referred to a neuro-ophthalmologist for further diagnosis or tests. Treatment
Dry eye syndrome (DES) is one of the most common types of ocular diseases seen in daily practice and has been recently considered as a major problem in public health. It is a disorder of the tear film layer due to tear deficiency or rapid tear evaporation resulting in symptoms of ocular discomfort. Currently, there is a need to find the most simple and efficient way to treat dry eyes. Artificial tears are the most common types of agents used in treating dry eyes, but it may not be the most effective. Various treatments such as warm compresses or punctal plugs can also be used to help relieve dry eye symptoms.
There are many parts of the eye that all play a part in helping us see. The parts we will be examining are the cornea, sclera, optic nerve, iris, lens, pupil, ciliary body, and aqueous humor.

Sinusitis alludes to swelling and aggravation of the sinus layers. The sinuses are empty pits through which air passes. There are four sets of sinuses situated inside of the facial bones and the skull. The frontal sinuses are situated over the eyes, the maxillary sinuses are situated inside of the cheekbones, the ethmoid sinuses are situated behind the nose span and the sphenoid sinuses are situated in the upper part of the nose, behind the eyes. The sinuses are associated with the nose. There is a trade of air and bodily fluid between the sinuses and the nose. There is a covering of bodily fluid layer that interfaces the sinuses and nasal sections. Any kind of disease of irritation in the nose additionally influences the sinuses. At the point when there is blockage or development
With a slit-lamp associ- ated injuries such as corneal abrasions, lens dislocations, hyphema, commotio retinae, and retinal detachments. Assessment of extraocular movement is even more impor- tant in children due to the so-called white eye syndrome, in which the eye looks otherwise completely normal except for extraocular movement limitation. Since greenstick fractures are more common in children, these fractures causing a trapdoor effect and muscle impingement are more likely to be seen in the pediatric population (Figure
In the eye, the cornea is entry point for light. In simple terms, the cornea is the transparent tissue at the front of the eye that functions as the window through which all light has to pass through on its way to forming visual perception. The reception of a clear image is dependent on the integrity of the corneal surface. However, with age, the lens is subject to cataracts and presbyopia in addition to other damage. This damage to the surface of the eye effects how people see and could potentially slow their reaction time to what they are seeing.
GDSC1027 Diseases and Medicine Term Paper Wong Ka Ho 13205919 Topic: Sjögren's syndrome Introduction: Sjögren's syndrome,which was discovered by an ophthalmologist Henrik Samuel Conrad Sjögren,is an autoimmune disorder. It is also a persistent disease that will have long term effects on the patients and it cannot be cured in a short period of time but fortunately it is non-transmissible. The major group of people having this disease is the 40-60 age and 90% of them are women because of their relatively weak immune system. Because of the weak immune system,the misclassification of good cells by white blood cells makes the white blood cells become the autoantibody,which are called Anti-SSA autoantibodies to attack other good cells.
Another way to prevent UV exposure is by wearing a brimmed hat (as Ultraviolet light can still enter through the side of sunglasses).7 Epidemiology Males and females are equally at risk of getting snow blindness. There has also been no reported cases of mortality with this condition.8 Conclusion Photokeratitis or snow blindness, is a condition that causes eye pain in which the symptoms the begins 6 -12 hours after exposure. In this condition, the outer surface layer of the cornea loses epithelial cells and thereby exposes the subepithelial nerve endings. Upon examination, there is eye injection and oedema. Fluorescein staining may also show punctuate corneal staining.
