Ptosis
08 June 2016   (0)
Ptosis is a drooping or falling of the upper eyelid which is considered to be a cosmetic problem and can bring to the limitation of vision function. Congenital ptosis is quite a common pathology in recent years. It is more commonplace to find congenital ptosis on only one side. Surgery is the only effective treatment for ptosis.

The AECP, in cooperation with the USAID and Armenia’s Ministry of Health, launched a three-year program entitled Center of Excellence for the Prevention of Childhood Blindness in 2012. The vision for this program is that all children in Armenia and the surrounding countries have access to specialized eye care, and that childhood blindness caused by ROP is eliminated. It is the logical continuation of a national program “Prevention and Treatment of the Retinopathy of Prematurity” that AECP has carried out in Armenia since 2010.

Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP) is a potentially blinding eye disorder that primarily affects premature infants. Those most at risk weigh less than 1,5 kg at birth or are born more than eight weeks early. ROP occurs when abnormal blood vessels grow and spread throughout the retina, the tissue that lines the back of the eye

Amblyopia, commonly called "lazy eye," is an eye condition in which one eye is not used enough for the visual system in the brain to develop properly. If one eye is weaker, the brain ignores the images from it and uses only the images from the strong eye, leading to poor vision in the weak eye.
Childhood cataracts
Childhood cataracts
11 April 2016   (0)
A cataract is a painless, cloudy area in the lens of the eye that blocks the passage of light to the retina, the nerve layer at the back of the eye, usually causing vision problems. Cataracts occur when changes in the lens of the eye cause it to become less transparent (clear). This results in cloudy or misty vision. Cataracts are rare in babies and children. But a child may be born with them because of genetics, infection during pregnancy, or low birth weight.
