Eye Diseases

Certain factors, such as injuries, medication, age, gender or radiation, can cause eye diseases to appear at an early age. It is vitally important to diagnose these diseases as early as possible. For this, field of vision tests and computer-assisted images are used. Measuring intraocular pressure is insufficient, since, for example, many patients suffering from glaucoma have pressure within normal levels. The prognosis of the disease is usually positive if it is diagnosed and treated at an early stage. From the age of 45, we recommend regular visits to an ophthalmologist with extensive experience, since some diseases can cause vision problems and the symptoms can vary greatly.
In addition, certain vision changes can be dangerous and should receive immediate medical attention, as if left untreated, they can lead to blindness or eye damage in the worst case scenario. An in-depth eye exam can make all the difference for your eyesight and your health.

On this page we have compiled some of the most common symptoms and their causes, but if you experience pain or see flashes and black dots in your field of vision, you should see a specialist.


Types of ocular pathologies



It is an asymptomatic disease, where damage to the visual field appears in the optic nerve, and in a later phase, untreated glaucoma can cause loss of vision in the central area and blindness.



It is a degenerative disease of the cornea that causes progressive thinning and deformation of the tissue, mainly in its central and paracentral area. This tissue is losing structural strength and refractive and optical capacity.


Macular Degeneration

Macular degeneration is a disease where the structure of the back of the eye, that is the retina, is permanently damaged.

It is necessary to make the diagnosis and start treatment as soon as the first symptoms appear.


Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetes can cause changes in the retina, or diabetic retinopathy, which can significantly reduce vision. People with diabetes should have regular ophthalmological examinations of the fundus.


Retinal Thrombosis

Ocular or retinal thrombosis is the occlusion of the retinal veins and arteries. This means that a narrowing occurs that prevents or hinders the passage of fluids through these conduits.
