Branch Retinal Vein Occlusion (BRVO) is a blockage of the small veins in the retina.
Cataracts is a clouding of the eye’s normally clear lens, causing vision problems.
Cellulitis is a bacterial infection of tissue that can affect both the eyes and skin.
Central Retinal Vein Occlusion (CRVO) is a blockage of the main vein in the retina.
Central Serous Retinopathy fluid builds up under the retina and distorts vision.
Chalazia and Styes is a lump on the eyelid caused by enlarged oil-producing gland in the eyelid / is also a lump on the eyelid, usually caused by an infected eyelash follicle.

Corneal Laceration is a cut on the cornea.

Farsightedness (hyperopia) is a refractive error, which means the eye does not bend or refract light properly. Distant objects look clear but close objects appear blurred.
Floaters and Flashes are shadows cast on the eye’s retina from clumps of gel or cells inside the vitreous / are flashes of light that you see when the vitreous gel pulls or rubs the retina.
Fuchs' Dystrophy is a progressive eye disease affecting the cornea, causing certain cells to deteriorate and die off, making corneal cells swollen and cloudy.
Fungal Keratitis is an infection of the cornea, often due to improper care and cleaning of contact lenses or from injury to the cornea.
Giant Cell Arteritis is a swelling of the arteries, the bv that carry blood away from heart. When they swell, it reduces the bf through these vessels. It affects the arteries in the neck, upper body and arms. Can cause sudden, painless vision loss.
