Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a painless eye condition that generally leads to the gradual loss of central vision but can sometimes cause a rapid reduction in vision. Previously, there were limited treatment options available but over the past decade there has been great advances in available treatments particularly for the more severe forms of AMD.

A cataract is when the lens inside the eye becomes cloudy causing loss of vision.
This can reduce your vision both in the distance and for reading. Sometimes it may also cause ‘glare’ around bright lights, which may be worse at night.
The cornea is like a clear window at the front of the eye. Diseases that damage it and affect sight include infection (bacterial and viral such as the herpes or cold sore virus), trauma and dystrophies, such as keratoconus and Fuchs’ endothelial dystrophy.
Dermatochalsis is drooping or folding of excess eyelid skin. It is caused by the skin loosing its elasticity, usually due to age. It may be associated with prolapse of orbital fat causing the eyelid to bulge (eye bags).
A facial filler is a man made product that is injected into or deep to the skin, to smooth out creases and folds.
They are often jelly like in consistency, giving volume in the skin where the fold or crease is to fill out the area and smooth the contours of the face.
Diabetes can affect blood vessels, large and small around the body causing a number of problems over time.
A cyst is caused by a gland, which has become blocked but continues to produce fluid or oil. This collects under the skin as a spherical lump.
Types of surgery include Ptosis Surgery, Ectropion Surgery, Entropion Surgery, Upper Lid Retraction, Surgery, Lower Lid Retraction Surgery, Eyelid Skin Cancer Surgery
Glaucoma is a very common condition of the eyes. It is especially common in elderly people, and may run in families.
Glaucoma causes loss of your so-called peripheral vision.
Tears are produced by the lacrimal gland, which is located in the upper outer part of the orbit, next to the eyeball.
Tears flow over the surface of the eye towards the nose.
Strabismus (or what is often colloquially known as squint) is where the two eyes do not look in the same direction. The eyes can be turned out, turned in, turned up or down in relation to each other.
