Diagnosis is sometimes challenging even with the help of an experienced practitioner. Accordingly, any recommendations that may be given below for a particular eye condition assume a diagnosis that is made by a licensed eyecare practitioner.

The ideas and viewpoints expressed in this website are based on the author’s clinical findings and literature research spanning over seventeen years of experience. Whilst the author’s current understanding and insight into eye health have been expressed with as much care as possible, no responsibility can be taken by the author for any of the ideas or recommendations which are expressed below.

No claim is made to provide an exhaustive coverage of the possible causes of eye disease. Any recommendations given should be seen as ways of increasing one's chances of maintaining good vision and healthy eyes.
