General (FAQ) For Ophthalmology

Cataracts typically develop due to aging, prolonged exposure to UV radiation, and certain medical conditions like diabetes.
Common symptoms include blurred or cloudy vision, difficulty seeing at night, sensitivity to light, frequent prescription changes, and double vision in a single eye.
While there's no proven prevention, protecting your eyes from UV rays, managing health conditions, and quitting smoking may reduce the risk of cataract progression.
Two signs of glaucoma are increased intraocular pressure and optic nerve damage, often leading to peripheral vision loss.
No, but early detection and treatment can manage the condition and prevent further vision loss.
Increased intraocular pressure is the primary cause of glaucoma, damaging the optic nerve and leading to vision loss.
Treatment depends on the specific issue but may involve medications, laser therapy, or surgical interventions.
Retina problems vary, but conditions like diabetic retinopathy and age-related macular degeneration are prevalent, affecting millions worldwide.
Factors include diabetes, hypertension, age-related degeneration, and eye trauma, all contributing to retinal damage.
Keratoconus is a common corneal disease characterized by the thinning and bulging of the cornea.
The curability depends on the specific corneal disease; some conditions can be managed with treatments like corneal transplants.
Refractive errors occur due to irregularities in the shape of the eye, leading to difficulty focusing light on the retina.
Eyeglasses, contact lenses, or refractive surgery (LASIK) are common methods to correct refractive errors.
