Common eye conditions

Your general well being and quality of life are impacted by your ability to see. We believe that they can best be maintained when you embrace the tools and use the resources that are available to keep safe, keep active and live life to the fullest. Eye care technology and surgical procedures have vastly improved and expanded. There is so much more we can diagnose and treat now.

We have summarised a number of the common eye conditions in the articles below for your perusal, but please contact us should you have any questions or would like guidance. Certain symptoms are considered an eye emergency and require the attention of an ophthalmologist. If you experience any of the following: vision loss, altered eye movements, eye pain, visual field loss, or a bulging eye, please contact an ophthalmologist or call Pietermaritzburg Eye Hospital for advice.
