Explanations of typical eye conditions and procedures that are performed at FOCUS

At Focus we can diagnose, assess and monitor most eye conditions and perform the safest procedures using the most advanced technology on offer.

Eye Conditions

Procedures

eye conditions, refractive error simulation, astigmatism correction

Refractive Error - Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatments

/
If your eye is out of focus it could be due to refractive error. This occurs when light rays do not properly focus on the retina.
eye conditions, cataract simulation

Cataracts - Causes, Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatments

/
A cataract is clouding of the crystalline lens of the eye. This in turn affects vision. Cataracts form for many reasons but the most common is age.
eye conditions, keratoconus simulation

Keratoconus - Causes, Symptoms and Treatments

/
Keratoconus is a thinning of the central zone of the cornea, the front surface of the eye.
eye conditions, pterygium simulation

Pterygium - Causes, Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatments

/
A pterygium is a triangular shaped growth that covers the white part of the eye. It typically presents near the inner corner of the eye and can encroach onto the cornea towards the pupil.
eye conditions, glaucoma simulation

Glaucoma - Causes, Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatments

/
Glaucoma is an eye disease which can damage the optic nerve. It typically occurs in people over the age of 60 and those with a family history.
eye conditions, macular degeneration simulation

Ptosis - Causes, Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatments

/
Ptosis is a drooping of the upper eyelid. The lid may droop only slightly, or it may cover the pupil entirely.
eye conditions, diabetic retinopathy simulation

Do you have Diabetic Eye Disease ?

/
Diabetic retinopathy is a complication of diabetes and a cause of blindness in Australia and worldwide. It results from damage to the fine blood vessels behind the eyes as a result of the diabetes.
eye conditions, macular degeneration simulation

Macular Degeneration - Causes, Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatments

/
The macula is a small central area of the retina. Structures in the macula are specialised for high acuity vision. The macula is important for reading, driving, recognition of faces and fine detail.
