La lumière est reflétée par des objets et pénètre par la pupille. Elle traverse la lentille et le corps vitré pour atteindre la rétine. Lorsque le cerveau reçoit ce message, la vision s’effectue. Un changement ou des dommages à la rétine peuvent entraîner une perte de vision.

This is a French translation of the English pamphlet, 0461, "Retinal Treatments". Light is reflected from objects and enters the pupil. It passes through the lens and vitreous onto the retina. The retina changes light into a message which the optic nerve carries to the brain. When the brain receives the message, you have vision. Change or damage to the retina can cause loss of vision. This pamphlet explains how to tell if your retina is damaged, what problems can happen to the retina, and types of treatments and surgery.

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.

Abstract
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.
The French version of this pamphlet 1897, "Ablation de l’oeil", is also available.

Your eyes are filled with a fluid made by the ciliary body. This fluid flows through the pupil, in front of the lens, and then out through a drain called the trabecular meshwork. Glaucoma is a disease where increased pressure in the eye damages the optic nerve. It usually happens when the trabecular meshwork (drain) does not work and fluid cannot drain from the eye. Fluid buildup in the front part of the eye increases pressure in your eye, damaging the optic nerve. This damage may at first caus…

Abstract
Your eyes are filled with a fluid made by the ciliary body. This fluid flows through the pupil, in front of the lens, and then out through a drain called the trabecular meshwork. Glaucoma is a disease where increased pressure in the eye damages the optic nerve. It usually happens when the trabecular meshwork (drain) does not work and fluid cannot drain from the eye. Fluid buildup in the front part of the eye increases pressure in your eye, damaging the optic nerve. This damage may at first cause loss of side vision. If left untreated, it may cause loss of central vision. Acute and chronic glaucoma are defined. The various tests used to diagnose glaucoma are described. Treatment can be medication, laser, or surgery. We have also provided instructions on how to use eye drops. The French version of this pamphlet 1910, "Gestion du glaucome", is also available.

A cataract is when the lens in your eye gets cloudy over time. The lens sits in a capsule (clear sac). During surgery, the cloudy lens is removed, leaving the capsule in place. A lens implant is put in front of the capsule. In up to half of patients who have had cataract surgery, the capsule also gets cloudy. When this happens, vision becomes blurred. This cloudiness can be treated with a YAG laser. The YAG laser is used to make an opening in the capsule (capsulotomy), like making a hole in a p…

Abstract
A cataract is when the lens in your eye gets cloudy over time. The lens sits in a capsule (clear sac). During surgery, the cloudy lens is removed, leaving the capsule in place. A lens implant is put in front of the capsule. In up to half of patients who have had cataract surgery, the capsule also gets cloudy. When this happens, vision becomes blurred. This cloudiness can be treated with a YAG laser. The YAG laser is used to make an opening in the capsule (capsulotomy), like making a hole in a piece of plastic wrap. Vision is usually clearer 1 to 2 days after the treatment. The pamphlet describes getting ready for treatment, what happens during, and what to expect after. A list of possible complications are given. The French version of this pamphlet 1947, "Capsulotomie au laser YAG", is also available.
