  • Retinopathy of prematurity
    Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) or Terry syndrome, previously known as retrolental fibroplasia (RLF), is a disease of the eye affecting prematurely-born babies generally having received intensive neonatal care, in which oxygen therapy is used on them due to the premature development of their lungs.
  • Central serous retinopathy
    Central serous retinopathy (CSR), also known as central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC or CSCR), is an eye disease which causes visual impairment, often temporary, usually in one eye.
  • Central retinal vein occlusion
    The central retinal vein is the venous equivalent of the central retinal artery and, like that blood vessel, it can suffer from occlusion (central retinal vein occlusion, also CRVO), similar to that seen in ocular ischemic syndrome.
  • Vitelliform macular dystrophy
    Vitelliform macular dystrophy or vitelliform dystrophy is an irregular autosomal dominant eye disorder which can cause progressive vision loss.
  • Cytomegalovirus retinitis
    Cytomegalovirus retinitis, also known as CMV retinitis, is an inflammation of the retina of the eye that can lead to blindness.
  • Diabetic retinopathy
    Diabetic retinopathy ([ˌrɛtnˈɑpəθi]), also known as diabetic eye disease, is when damage occurs to the retina due to diabetes.
  • Ocular ischemic syndrome
    Ocular ischemic syndrome is the constellation of ocular signs and symptoms secondary to severe, chronic arterial hypoperfusion to the eye.
  • Macular edema
    Macular edema occurs when fluid and protein deposits collect on or under the macula of the eye (a yellow central area of the retina) and causes it to thicken and swell (edema).
  • Retinal detachment
    Retinal detachment is a disorder of the eye in which the retina separates from the layer underneath.
  • Retinoschisis
    Retinoschisis is an eye disease characterized by the abnormal splitting of the retina's neurosensory layers, usually in the outer plexiform layer.
  • Choroideremia
    Choroideremia /kɒˌrɔɪdᵻˈriːmi.
  • Hypertensive retinopathy
    Hypertensive retinopathy is damage to the retina and retinal circulation due to high blood pressure (i.e. hypertension).
  • Purtscher's retinopathy
    Putscher's retinopathy is a disease where part of the eye (retina) is damaged.
  • Retinal haemorrhage
    Retinal hemorrhage is a disorder of the eye in which bleeding occurs into the light sensitive tissue on the back wall of the eye.
  • Retinitis
    Retinitis is inflammation of the retina in the eye, which may lead to blindness.
  • Retinopathy
    Retinopathy is persistent or acute damage to the retina of the eye.
  • Birdshot chorioretinopathy
    Birdshot chorioretinopathy is a rare form of bilateral posterior uveitis affecting the eye.
  • Retinitis pigmentosa
    Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is an inherited, degenerative eye disease that causes severe vision impairment due to the progressive degeneration of the rod photoreceptor cells in the retina.
  • Macular degeneration
    Macular degeneration, also known as age-related macular degeneration (AMD or ARMD), is a medical condition which may result in blurred or no vision in the center of the visual field.
  • Bietti's crystalline dystrophy
    Bietti's crystalline dystrophy (BCD), also called Bietti crystalline corneoretinal dystrophy, is a rare autosomal recessive eye disease named after Dr.
  • Epiretinal membrane
    Epiretinal membrane is a disease of the eye in response to changes in the vitreous humor or more rarely, diabetes.
  • Coats' disease
    Coats’ disease, (also known as exudative retinitis or retinal telangiectasis, sometimes spelled Coates' disease), is a rare congenital, nonhereditary eye disorder, causing full or partial blindness, characterized by abnormal development of blood vessels behind the retina.
  • Acute retinal necrosis
    Acute Retinal Necrosis (ARN), is a medical inflammatory condition of the eye.
