PhotokeratitisPhotokeratitis is a very painful condition that occurs when the eyes have been exposed to significant amounts of ulraviolet (UV) light, causing inflammation of the cornea. I guess you could say sunburnt eyes. This condition is also referred to as Keratitis and Snowblindness.
Keratoconus, a pathological thinning of the cornea, directly affects about 12,000 Australians, with many times this number undiagnosed. But the impact of this disease often extends beyond the sufferer to their family and colleagues.
Shingles is the disease caused when the chicken pox virus reactivates. It is associated with eye problems, some very serious, but the most debilitating thing is the nerve pain that can persist even after the rash has healed.
After over a year in our temporary residence, The Eye Practice has moved to a beautiful new home at Level 3, 50 York St, in Sydney CBD.
Are you bothered by light? Light-adaptive transitions glasses have been around for decades, darkening and fading in various lighting conditions. Unfortunately, there was no equivalent for soft contact lens wearers – until now.
