Refractive Errors are commonly called ‘Power’. These areMyopia (short-sight), Hypermetropia (long-sight),astigmatism (distorted sight) and Presbyopia.

Cataracts are the first leading cause of blindness in the world. A cataract is clouding the lenses in the eye. It affects most people after the age of 50 years. Diabetes or eye injury, trauma, or steroid intake in any form can be other causes of cataracts. “Cataract can be completely cured by surgery”.
Diabetic Retinopathy is a potentially blinding complication of diabetes. Any person with diabetes can develop retinopathy depending on the duration of diabetes. People with poor blood sugar control, high blood pressure, and smokers are at great risk for developing Diabetic Retinopathy.
Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness. It is a condition where the optic nerve gets damaged due to pressure in the eye. It is diagnosed by routine eye examination, especially above the age of 40 years. People with a family history of Glaucoma, Diabetes & Myopia are at risk for developing an eye problem.
Squint is turning of eyes in an ‘awkward’ direction. The eye may be turned in or out, one or both eyes may be affected. Squint is corrected by using spectacles, surgery, and eye exercise. It must be treated early at young age to prevent drop-in vision (amblyopia).
