What Are Ocular Diseases?

Ocular diseases are conditions that affect the eyes or the visual system as a whole. Examples of common ocular diseases include:

  • Age-Related Macular Degeneration
  • Cataracts
  • Diabetic Eye Disease
  • Glaucoma
  • Keratoconus
  • Ocular Hypertension
  • Retinal Detachment
  • Strabismus (crossed eyes)

Some ocular diseases are minor, while others can be more severe and ultimately result in vision loss. When that happens, it can impact your life and stop you from doing the things you enjoy. If you or a loved one has an ocular disease or have already experienced a loss of vision, talk to Dr. Jim Gillispie.
