Eye Disease Information

Whether you are a caregiver or patient that needs information, Verre Eye Clinic understands that need to know about the eye issues and problems affecting you or your loved ones. We want you to feel secure and empowered by providing you detailed information on some of the most common eye diseases.


Amblyopia, commonly known as "Lazy Eye," occurs when one eye develops normally and maintains good vision while the other does not.


Blepharitis is the persistent inflammation of the eyelids, resulting from bacteria that reside on the skin.


Dry eye is a condition characterized by the underproduction of tears or the appropriate quality of tears to keep the eyes healthy and comfortable.

Conjunctivitis (Pink Eye)    MORE INFORMATION

Conjunctivitis, commonly known as "pink eye" is an inflammation of the conjunctiva, which is the clear membrane that covers the white part of the eye and the inner surface of the eyelids.


Keratoconus is characterized by an irregular protrusion of the cornea, which is the clear surface over the iris (the colored part of the eye). In keratoconus, the cornea will appear "cone shaped" rather than having the normal spherical curve.


A cataract is the result of opacification or clouding of the crystalline lens of the eye.


Glaucoma is a disease that affects the optic nerve; the nerve that carries information about visual images to the brain. Glaucoma is currently the leading cause of blindness in the United States.

Macular Degeneration (AMD)    MORE INFORMATION

Age-related Macular Degeneration is the deterioration of the macula, a small area in the retina which is responsible for sharp, central vision and color vision.


A macular hole is a break in the macula, a small area in the retina which is responsible for sharp, central vision and color vision.

Epiretinal Membrane    MORE INFORMATION

An epiretinal membrane, also known as a macular pucker or cellophane retinopathy, is a condition characterized by the growth of a membrane across the macula (the central area of the retina).

Flashes and Floaters (Vitreous Separation)    MORE INFORMATION

Floaters are small, fluid particles that have detached from the gel-like vitreous fluid found within the interior of the eye.

Retinal Detachment/Tears    MORE INFORMATION

A retinal tear occurs when the vitreous fluid inside the eye pulls away from the retinal surface with a force great enough to tear the retina. A retinal detachment occurs when the pulling away of the vitreous fluid causes the retinal tissue to become separated from the inside wall of the eye.

Central/Branch Retinal Vein Occlusion    MORE INFORMATION

A vein occlusion occurs when the circulation of blood to a retinal vein becomes obstructed by an adjacent blood vessel. There are two types of occlusion: central and branch.

Diabetic Retinopathy   MORE INFORMATION

Diabetic retinopathy is a serious complication of the eye due to diabetes mellitus. Diabetic retinopathy may result in poor vision or even blindness if it is not managed properly.
