361 Possible Causes for Abnormality of Refraction

  • Glaucoma

    Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases which result in damage to the optic nerve and cause vision loss. The most common type is open-angle glaucoma with less common types including closed-angle glaucoma and normal-tension glaucoma. Open-angle glaucoma develops slowly over time and there is no pain. Peripheral vision[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Joint Dislocation

    Joint dislocation results from contact sports or trauma. Dislocation typically occurs at the shoulder, elbow, finger, ankle, etc. The diagnosis is confirmed by the history, physical exam, and radiographic imaging. Joint dislocations can be sustained during contact sports and physical activities such as football,[…][symptoma.com]

  • Herpes Zoster

    This abnormal curvature changes the cornea's refractive power, producing moderate to severe distortion (astigmatism) and blurriness (nearsightedness) of vision.[web.archive.org]

  • Retinitis Pigmentosa

    Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is a heterogeneous group of inherited retinal disorders characterized by progressive photoreceptor apoptosis. It is the leading cause of inherited retinal degeneration-associated blindness. RP has a unique set of clinical characteristics that make it a complex disease associated with[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Strabismus

    Other common surgical corrections include those for club feet, strabismus, ptosis, and reconstructions from disfiguring traumas and congenital and developmental abnormalities[web.archive.org] Disorders associated with MH include strabismus, ptosis, and other musculoskeletal abnormalities.[clinicaladvisor.com] Clinical aspects of Normal and Abnormal Visual Development DVM 5.[elsevier.com]

  • Keratitis

    Other risk factors include: Recent injury to the eye Recent refractive corneal surgery Weak immune system Abnormal eyelids Abnormal tearing Other eye diseases Recommendations[news-medical.net] This abnormal curvature changes the cornea's refractive power, producing moderate to severe distortion (astigmatism) and blurriness (nearsightedness) of vision.[web.archive.org]

  • Retinal Detachment

    They can treat a range of conditions, including: Abnormal tearing Adult strabismus Cataracts Conjunctivitis Corneal diseases and trauma Detached retina Diabetic retinopathy[tuh.templehealth.org] Drooping eyelid (Ptosis) Eye floaters Eyelid tumor Glaucoma Infectious eye disease and inflammation Orbital fractures Posterior vitreous detachment Refractive errors Retinal[tuh.templehealth.org]

  • Deviated Nasal Septum

    Regular checks of visual acuity and refractive error should be carried out in childhood to detect abnormalities.[doi.org] The cornea of patients is reported to be thinner and flatter than the normal population, and therefore it is not advisable for these patients to undergo corneal refractive[doi.org]

  • Diabetic Cataract

    Abstract One of the most common visual complaints seen ill diabetes is transitory refractive changes.[pediatrics.aappublications.org] This abnormality affects all age groups equally 1 and has been reported in 6% to 34% of patients. 2,3 Diabetic myopia is associated with marked hyperglycemia, whereas hyperopia[pediatrics.aappublications.org]

  • Keratoconus

    This abnormal curvature changes the cornea's refractive power, producing moderate to severe distortion (astigmatism) and blurriness (nearsightedness) of vision.[healthcare.utah.edu] This abnormal curvature changes the cornea’s refractive power, producing moderate to severe distortion (astigmatism) and blurriness (nearsightedness) of vision.[eyenm.com] How the intervention might work To reiterate, the purpose of corneal transplantation for keratoconus is to replace the abnormal anterior refractive surface of the eye with[doi.org]
