Tatebe Optometry believes in educating patients on various aspects of their eye health. If you or any member of your family has been diagnosed with an eye disease, learning about the condition can prove to be helpful. In an endeavour to share our knowledge about the various forms of eye problems, their symptoms and treatments, we have compiled a list of common eye issues. These include:
Young eyes need equal visual stimulation for binocularity and mature vision to properly develop. When one eye receives less input due to a difference in refractive error (prescription) from the other eye or a squint (turning in or out) or a significant ocular health problem (such as congenital cataract), binocularity cannot develop. Thus, it is important that all young children see their optometrist to make sure that nothing is inhibiting their ocular development. The younger the age of detection, the better the prognosis of correction. If left unattended and uncorrected, individuals will most likely endure poorer vision for the rest of their life.
