What is LASIK ?

LASIK is an operation where the cornea, surface tissue of the eye is reformed to reduce a person’s dependence on glasses or contact lenses. The acronym LASIK means Laser in Situ Keratomileusis because an excimer laser (ultraviolet laser type) is used. It is like other corrective procedures such as photorefractive keratectomy PRK but provides many […]

OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography)

Most diseases and eye problems show no clear symptoms except at an advanced stage, which means that an eye tissue can be damaged without the patient knowing it. During the OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) examination, a series of 70 thousand per second 3D scans of the retina, macula, choroid, optic nerve but also cornea, lens […]

OCT –Αngiography (OCT-Angio)

OCT – Angiography is a high-tech examination that is carried out just like the OCT test but at the same time provides useful information for the status of the vessels and the perfusion of the macular, retina, optic nerve, and choroid. Unlike fluorescein angiography or other forms of angiography (e.g., magnetic or CT- angiography, coronarography, […]

Retinal vascular occlusion

Retinal vascular occlusion significantly affects the vision. The retina is the light-sensitive layer of tissue located on the posterior inner wall of the eyeball. It includes, among other cells, photoreceptors, cones and rodes which receive the light waves and through a complex process this is transferred to the brain where it is converted into an […]

Retinal detachment

Mechanism Retinal detachment is a serious condition in which the so-called neuroretina is detached from the underlying epithelium due to a hole or tear. The light receptors can be damaged in just a few hours or days. Normal eye     Retinal tear     Retinal detachment Symptoms: An early sign of a detachment is the perception […]

Astigmatism

Regardless of myopia and hyperopia, but usually in combination with them, a large percentage of the normal population has astigmatism. This happens when the cornea has more oval rather than spherical form. The different curvature of the cornea each time causes deformation of objects that are not perceived clearly.           Normal […]

Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty is the method of removing skin, adipose and partially muscle tissue in the eyelid area. The operation is performed according to the clinical picture on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both at the same time. The most common cause is dermatochalasis (mainly in the upper eyelid) followed by prolapse of fat of the […]

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is defined as various pathological entities. Common point of all is the at an advanced stage destruction of the optic nerve head on the background of the eye globe (optic disc). The causes as well as the disturbances may be different each time, but the common element is always the destruction over time of […]

Diabetes, Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy is the most common cause of blindness at ages under 50 in Western countries and is caused by a sugar attack of retinal vessels. In particular, the inner wall of the vessels is destroyed, with the loss of their watertightness, accumulation of fluid in the retina resulting in the gradual destruction of photoreceptors […]

Dyschromatopsia – Color Blindness

The above term describes the impossibility of normal perception of colors. Most forms of dyschromatopsia are congenital and more rarely acquired. In the case of much rarer color blindness, only white, black and gray color are perceived. From dyschromatopsia suffers about 6-8% of the normal male and 0.4% of the normal female population.                                                                   Normal […]
