Myopia, Hyperopia and Astigmatism
Refractive errors (myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and presbyopia or "eyestrain") occur when the optical elements of the eye do not focus light on the retina and therefore generate a blurred visual image.
They can be corrected with glasses, contact lenses, or refractive surgery.
Children's ophthalmological examination
It is recommended from 4 years of age
They are small bumps on the eyelid caused by the blockage of one or more sebaceous glands. Treatment depends on the clinical characteristics and the time of evolution.

Some symptoms in more advanced stages are: blurred vision, bleeding inside the eye, red or black spots "floating" in the vision.
It is a group of eye disorders that cause damage to the optic nerve causing loss of vision and blindness. The damage is irreversible and is generally associated with elevated eye pressure. Glaucoma generally does not cause discomfort and as peripheral vision progresses it is gradually lost. When it is not treated and is in more advanced stages, there is a total and irreversible loss of vision.
Condition that affects the area of finest vision in the retina in which some residues (drusen) of the eye's metabolism are deposited instead of being eliminated.
The macula is responsible for central vision and fine detail vision, therefore, when affected, it can interfere with activities of daily life such as seeing people's faces, reading, writing, driving, etc.

Most of these injuries are not dangerous, but they can endanger vision if the foreign body penetrates the interior of the eye or if the wound that caused it becomes infected.
