There are a number of ocular diseases that can threaten your vision, including age-related macular degeneration, refractive errors, and cataracts.
Your cornea is the clear, outer layer of your eye. It helps focus vision, but also serves as a protective barrier, which makes it susceptible to a number of conditions.
Eye infections can cause symptoms such as redness, itchiness, pain, or feelings of dryness, and can also lead to more serious problems.
