|Refractive Error |
Refractive error is the term given to the blur caused by light entering the eyeball that does not focus perfectly onto the retina (the inner lining of the back of the eye). The refractive error is what optometrists or ophthalmologists measure during an eye examination to determine the prescription for spectacles or contact lenses.
Light entering the eyeball is refracted or bent mainly by the cornea (clear covering of the eye) and the crystalline lens (natural lens inside the eyeball). ... Read More|

The bottom normally pigmented layer of the retina is called the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE). When the RPE layer of the retina is thicker than normal it presents during routine examination as a darker mole-like area. Any atypical area of our body always requires extra cauti... Read More|
