There are many eye diseases that are both interesting and have important visual implications. Here are a few seen in our office.
Top left is the staining when using a dye to note a corneal abrasion. A six month old scratched her mother with a sharp fingernail.
Bottom Left is a corneal transplant. Due to corneal thinning this patient needed his thinning cornea replaced by a donor cornea. Note the running and radial sutures.
Top right is the retina from a lovely macular degeneration (AMD) patient.
Bottom Right is WOW!!! A welder upon coming home was told by his wife that he needed to come to our office. He had chemosis or an acute swelling of the conjunctiva due to an allergy.
Some interesting photos!!!
Top left is an eye with interesting Iris Adhesions. The iris is gummy in some eye infections which is the reason that the pupil must be dilated when some eye infections are being treated. This stickiness causes it to adhere to the lens of the eye. A small amount of adherence, as is shown here, not a problem. This may have been present at birth. If you view these two images uncrossed, you'll notice the iris adhesion going back to the lens with it's white adhesion.
Top right is an eye that was healing from a car accident. To help in healing a punctal tube was put into the drainage areas of the eye. The puncta are shown here with a tube leading from the top one to the bottom one. Also, notice a contact lens in this eye.
Bottom left is a congenital cataract in the nucleus or center of the lens from birth. This patient manages a Pharmacy and does foreign mission work. She is an angel and the cataract in her eye looks like one! It has minimal effect on her vision.
Bottom right is an interesting vitreous floater. It is behind the lens of the eye in the jello-like vitreous of the eye. Shot with light going from the side into the retina makes it look like a 'bug' in the eye. This floater was not seen or noticed by the patient as it was close to the lens of the eye and not actually in the central visual area.
