Dry EyesOur eyes need tears to stay healthy and comfortable. If your eyes do not produce enough tears, it is called dry eye.
Diabetic Eye DiseasePeople with diabetes can have an eye disease called diabetic retinopathy. This is when high blood sugar levels cause damage to blood vessels in the retina.
GlaucomaGlaucoma is a disease that damages your eye’s optic nerve. It usually happens when fluid builds up in the front part of your eye. That extra fluid increases the pressure in your eye, damaging the optic nerve.
Macular DegenerationAge-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a problem with your retina. It happens when a part of the retina called the macula is damaged.
Conjuctivitis (Pink Eye)Conjunctivitis is often called “pink eye.” It happens when the conjunctiva is irritated by an infection or allergies.
AllergiesEye allergies, also called allergic conjunctivitis, are quite common. They occur when the eyes react to something that irritates them

Flashes, Floaters, Vitreous DetachmentFloaters look like small specks, dots, circles, lines or cobwebs in your field of vision. While they seem to be in front of your eye, they are floating inside.
