ARMD, Nonexudative : Article by Raj K Maturi, MD
ARMD, Nonexudative - Nonexudative (dry) age-related macular degeneration (AMD) describes a collection of inherited diseases (multifactorial) that share common features including: age predilection, frequently positive family history, presence of yellow-gray material in the Bruch membrane, retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) changes (eg, atrophy, clumping, RPE detachments) in the posterior pole or periphery, and visual disturbances (ie, abnormal reading, stereo and/or color vision, and dark/light adaptation disturbances).RPE degeneration is accompanied by variable loss of both the overlying photoreceptors and the underlying ...
ARMD, Retinal Electronic Prosthesis and RPE Transplantation : Article by Paul Le
ARMD, Retinal Electronic Prosthesis and RPE Transplantation - Profound vision loss due to posterior segment pathology currently offers no practical treatment options. However, 2 experimental treatment options currently being studied are visual prosthesis and retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cell transplantation. Visual prosthesis uses electrical stimulation to bypass damaged nerve endings. This method has been used successfully in the implanted cochlear neural prostheses. RPE transplant is an attempt to address the etiology of macular degeneration by replacing the damaged RPE cells.RPE ...

Abducens Nerve Palsy : Article by Michael P Ehrenhaus, MD
Abducens Nerve Palsy - Cranial nerve VI, also known as the abducens nerve, innervates the ipsilateral lateral rectus (LR), which functions to abduct the ipsilateral eye. It has the longest subarachnoid course of all the cranial nerves; therefore, its syndromes are similar to those of the fourth nerve because of their long intracranial courses. The sixth nerve nucleus is located in the pons, just ventral to the floor of the fourth ventricle and just lateral to the medial longitudinal fasciculus ...

Acrodermatitis Enteropathica : Article by John Sheppard, Jr, MD, MMSc, PhD
Acrodermatitis Enteropathica - Acrodermatitis enteropathica (AE) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by periorificial and acral dermatitis, alopecia, growth failure, and diarrhea. Symptoms of AE occur within the first few months after birth and tend to appear in nonbreastfed infants or shortly after discontinuation of breastfeeding. Ocular complications include lid and surface involvement as well as secondary ...
Actinomycosis : Article by Manolette R. Roque, M.D. - Eye M.D.
Actinomycosis - The bacterial order Actinomycetales comprises 3 families: Actinomycetaceae, Mycobacteriaceae, and Streptomycetaceae. Genus Actinomyces, a member of the family Actinomycetaceae, grows as a fragile branching filament that tends to fragment into bacillary and coccoid forms producing chains of either conidia or arthrospores. Actinomyces israelii species is a gram-positive, cast-forming, non–acid-fast, non–spore-forming anaerobic bacillus that is difficult to isolate and identify. Its filamentous growth and mycelialike colonies have a striking resemblance to fungi. They are soil organisms, often ...

Acupressure clears the blockage of qi and thus eye receives enough vital energy and blood circulation and thus the eye problem vanishes.
Acute Multifocal Placoid Pigment Epitheliopathy : Article by James P Ganley, MD,
Acute Multifocal Placoid Pigment Epitheliopathy - First described by Gass in 1968, acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy (APMPPE) is an acquired inflammatory disorder affecting the retina, retinal pigment epithelium, and choroid of otherwise young healthy adults. The disease is self-limited and is characterized by multiple yellow-white placoid subretinal lesions of the posterior pole. The lesions are frequently bilateral and in various stages of evolution, typically resolving in weeks to months and leaving circumscribed areas of retinal pigment ...
Acute Retinal Necrosis : Article by David T Wong, MD, FRCSC
Acute Retinal Necrosis - Acute retinal necrosis was first described in the Japanese literature in 1971 and termed Kirisawa uveitis. During the past 2 decades, acute retinal necrosis syndrome (ARN) has been a source of fear, frustration, and fascination for many ophthalmologists. Unfortunately, it usually is a visually devastating condition for the ...

FDA approved treatment of keratoconus with Intacs. Learn about the disorder, the Intacs procedure, and find a doctor.
The patient (usually a female) has anisocoria with the enlarged pupil failing to react to light. However, the pupil constricts in response to accommodation with delayed dilatation (this results in reversal of anisocoria).
Adult Strabismus General Information
Strabismus (misaligned eyes) in adults is often the result of progressive, untreated or unsuccessfully treated strabismus from childhood. There are also many adults who develop strabismus as the result of an injury or disease, which then frequently leads to double vision.
Age Related Macular Degeneration
This site has been designed to facilitate anyone who is directly or indirectly affected by Age Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD). The purpose is to provide an overview about the varying forms of this disease, distinguishing characteristics, and to illustrate some of the possible procedures as well as current research on the subject.
Age-Related Macular Degeneration [NEI Health Information]
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a disease associated with aging that gradually destroys sharp, central vision. Central vision is needed for seeing objects clearly and for common daily tasks such as reading and driving.
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD)
The macula is the central and most sensitive portion of the retina, the layer of tissue in the back of the eye that contains the light-receptive nerve cells essential for sight. For some people in their 50s, the macula begins to break down to some extent, resulting in the condition known as age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

Alacrima : Article by Dan DeAngelis, MD, FRCS(C)
Alacrima - Alacrima refers to a wide spectrum of lacrimal secretory disorders that are mostly congenital. Symptoms can range from a complete absence of tears to hyposecretion of tears; rare conditions include those where there is a selective absence of tearing in response to emotional stimulation but a normal secretory response to mechanical stimulation.The disorder usually is inherited in an autosomal recessive fashion, but dominant pedigrees have been described. Linkage analysis has linked some syndromic cases to band ...
Albinism : Article by Khalid Hasanee, MD
Albinism - Albinism consists of a group of inherited abnormalities of melanin synthesis typically characterized by a congenital reduction or absence of melanin pigment. This condition results from defective production of melanin from tyrosine through a complex pathway of metabolic reactions.There are several types of albinism. The phenotypic heterogeneity of this condition is due to the different gene mutations affecting various points along the melanin pathway, resulting in varying degrees of decreased melanin production. Additionally, there also are associated developmental ...
