Eye floaters are not optical illusions. They are small particles of dirt that float in the vitreous humor: the gelatinous filling of the eyeball that helps maintain its shape. Sometimes when these floating bodies move, they cast shadows on the retina.

In general, red eyes are caused by allergies, eyestrain, overuse of contact lenses, or common eye infections such as conjunctivitis. However, eye redness can sometimes be a sign of a more serious eye disorder or disease; uveitis or glaucoma.

The main causes of blurred vision are refractive errors (myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism) or presbyopia. However, blurred vision can also be a symptom of more serious problems, including eye disease that can be sight-threatening, or neurological disorders.

Halos are circles of diffuse light that form around a light source, such as streetlights or car headlights. You may have noticed these halos in car lights at night.

Watery eyes mean you have too many tears coming out of your eyes. Tears help keep the surface of the eye moist and remove particles and foreign bodies present there.

The sensation of burning or itchy eyes, associated or not with the secretion of a fluid other than tears, may be caused, among other things, by allergies, infections, irritations or dryness due to visual fatigue, computer vision syndrome or eye dry.

It is a loss of visual capacity that cannot be corrected with glasses, contact lenses, drugs or surgery. People with low vision have more difficulty, or are unable, to carry out activities of daily living such as reading, writing, recognizing faces, mobility, etc.

Superficial eye pain is often related to a foreign body in the eye, an eye infection, or anything that irritates or inflames the membrane that covers the surface of the eye. You might also describe the eye pain as originating from inside the eye as a throbbing or mild ongoing pain.

Uveitis is a form of eye inflammation. It affects the middle layer of the eye wall tissue (uvea). The warning signs of uveitis often come on suddenly and get worse quickly. These include eye redness, pain, and blurred vision.

Dry eye is a multifactorial, complex and chronic disease that affects the ocular surface and causes discomfort, visual problems and, in some cases, damage to the cornea and conjunctiva.

Photopsia is a term used in medicine to designate the sensation of seeing lights or flashes without external light stimuli, so they can be perceived even with the eyes closed.

Sudden vision loss is usually caused by 4 main reasons: The transparent structures of the eye have become opaque. Abnormalities in the retina (part of the eye that is responsible for central vision) Blockage of the nerves that send visual signals from the eye to the brain.

Ocular effusion, also known as subconjunctival hemorrhage or hyposphagma, is characterized by the appearance of a red spot of blood under the ocular conjunctiva. This can be caused by the rupture of some of the blood vessels or capillaries that exist in that important area of the eye.
