Eye conditions

Our information on individual eye conditions is medically checked and is designed to be as useful as possible. We have grouped them below, in alphabetical order, into three groups: names beginning with A to C, D to N and O to Z to make them easier to find quickly.

If you can’t find the eye condition you are enquiring about, please contact the RNIB Eye Health Information team on [email protected] or 0303 123 9999.
