Vous et votre médecin avez parlé des raisons pour lesquelles il est nécessaire d’enlever votre œil ou le contenu du globe oculaire. Ce dépliant explique comment prendre soin de vous en toute sécurité. L’énucléation est le terme médical qui désigne le retrait ou l’ablation de l’œil. Le terme médical utilisé pour parler du retrait du contenu du globe oculaire en conservant la couche externe (coque sclérale ou sclère) est éviscération. Les deux interventions entraînent la perte permanente de l’œil. Ce dépliant explique ce qui se passe avant et après la chirurgie, le port d’une chemise d’hôpital, les médicaments, les soins à la maison ainsi que vos émotions. Vous y trouverez de plus des informations sur les prothèses oculaires (œil artificiel) ainsi qu’une liste des symptômes nécessitant une consultation médicale immédiate.
This pamphlet is a French translation of "Eye Removal" pamphlet 0582. Your health care provider has talked with you about why your eye or the contents of your eye must be removed. This pamphlet will help you learn how to safely care for yourself after your procedure. The medical term for eye removal is enucleation. The medical term for removing the contents of the eye and leaving the outer coat (sclera) behind is evisceration. Both procedures mean permanent loss of the eye. This pamphlet explains what will happen before and after your surgery, including wearing a dressing, medication, care at home, and emotions you may have. Information about having a prosthesis (artificial eye) is given. A list of symptoms that require immediate medical attention is provided.

This pamphlet is a French translation of the English pamphlet 1761, "Posterior Vitreous Detachment (PVD)". Posterior vitreous detachment (PVD) is a common eye condition that can cause floaters (dots or spots) and flashes of light in your vision. PVD happens when a gel at the back of the eye starts to shrink with age and becomes liquid. This gel, called the vitreous humor, is normally attached to the ‘film’ of the eye, called the retina. When the vitreous humor shrinks and pulls away from the retina, it can detach itself (come apart from) from the retina in some places. This pamphlet explains what causes PVD, the symptoms of PVD, and how PVD is diagnosed and treated.

Elle vous donne la vision centrale nécessaire pour faire des choses comme lire, regarder la télé et voir les visages. Il existe deux formes de dégénérescence maculaire liée à l’âge (DMLA) : la forme sèche et la forme humide. Dans le cas de la dégénérescence maculaire sèche, les changements se produisent lentement, durant des mois ou des années. Il n'y a aucun traitement pour la DMLA de forme sèche. Dans le cas de la forme humide (dite aussi exsudative) de la DMLA, les changements se produisent souvent de façon rapide. Il est possible de traiter cette forme de DMLA. Sujets abordés : causes, traitement, injections, risques, sensation provoquée par les injections, suites des injections, précautions particulières à prendre après les injections et choses à faire pour aider votre situation. On y trouve aussi une liste de symptômes exigeant l’attention de votre spécialiste des yeux.
This is a French translation of the English pamphlet, 0460, "Macular Degeneration". The retina is a very thin delicate tissue at the back of the eye that turns light into images. The macula is the very small central area of your retina. It gives you the central vision needed to do things like reading, watching TV, and seeing faces. There are 2 types of age-related macular degeneration (AMD): dry and wet. With dry AMD, changes happen slowly over months or years. There is no treatment for dry AMD. With wet (also called ‘exudative’) AMD, changes often happen quickly. It is possible to treat wet AMD. Topics include: causes, treatment, risks, what the injection feels like, what to expect after the injection, special precautions after an injection, and things you can do to help your condition. A list of symptoms requiring attention by your eye doctor is included.

Abstract
Endophthalmitis is a type of severe (very bad) eye infection. It can lead to permanent vision loss in the infected eye. The amount of vision loss will depend on what caused the infection and how much damage the infection does to the eye. This pamphlet explains the possible treatments for endophthalmitis, and gives information about follow-up and pain.

Un examen du champ visuel mesure votre vision périphérique (vision de côté). Cette brochure vous fournit des instructions pour vous aider à vous préparer à l’examen du champ visuel. On y traite de la façon dont l’examen est effectué, de la manière de s’y préparer (ce que vous pouvez manger et boire, les médicaments, le port des lunettes ou des lentilles de contact, etc.), de la conduite et des résultats. Lorsque vous aurez l'heure de votre rendez-vous, vérifiez si vos yeux seront dilatés pour pouvoir demander à quelqu'un de vous reconduire à la maison après votre test. Si vos yeux sont dilatés, ils seront sensibles à la lumière du soleil et votre vision sera floue.
This pamphlet is a French translation of "Visual Field Testing" pamphlet 0503. A visual field test measures your peripheral vision (side vision). Instructions to help you prepare for visual field testing are given. Topics include: how a visual field test is done, getting ready for the test (what you can eat/drink, medications, bringing eye glasses/wearing contact lenses, etc.), driving, and test results. When you get your appointment time, ask if your eyes will be dilated so that you can plan to have someone drive you home after your test. If your eyes will be dilated, you will have blurred vision and sensitivity to sunlight.
