Glaucoma is the leading cause of irreversible blindness, globally. It is a case of typical optic neuropathy (optic nerve damage) which results in progressive visual-field loss. If and when detected early, the patient can be treated and further vision loss prevented. Leaving glaucoma untreated leads to definite and irreversible loss of vision.
It is useful in individuals with significant and irreversible loss of vision not improving with common aids like spectacles and contact lenses. It has variants that can be a combination of lenses like in microscope or telescope. It can be a simple handled magnifying glass or a complex electronic gadget.
People with low vision have some vision that can be improved with the help of ‘low vision devices or aids’ and visual rehabilitation services. The purpose of visual rehabilitation is to enable the person to perform necessary tasks. They can garner new strategies for performing daily chores and getting around safely. The adaptive process, in coordination with low vision services, is called vision rehabilitation.
Keratoconus is a progressive, degenerative disorder characterized by thinning of the Cornea. The dome shaped cornea starts to bulge out and becomes cone-like. The function of the cornea is to refract and focus light rays onto the retina. So, any abnormality in its shape leads to visual distress, eg- blurred vision and difficulty to focus distant objects or those in close-up.
This process of thinning and re-shaping of Cornea is called ‘Corneal Ectasia’. Keratoconus is a type of corneal ectasia.
