Abstract
Vous et votre médecin avez parlé des raisons pour lesquelles il est nécessaire d’enlever votre œil ou le contenu du globe oculaire. Le terme médical utilisé pour parler du retrait ou de l’ablation de l’œil est l’énucléation. Le terme médical utilisé pour parler du retrait du contenu du globe oculaire en conservant la couche externe (coque sclérale ou sclère) est éviscération. La présente brochure vous explique ces interventions et précise comment prendre soin de vous sans danger. Avant la chirurgie, votre médecin vous dira quelle intervention est nécessaire dans votre cas. Cela dépendra de vos symptômes ou du type de maladie. Les deux interventions entraînent la perte permanente de l’œil.
This pamphlet is a French translation of "Eye Removal" pamphlet 0582. You and your doctor have talked about why your eye or the contents of your eye must be removed. 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. This pamphlet will explain these procedures and help you learn how to safely care for yourself. Before surgery your doctor will tell you which procedure you need. This will depend on your symptoms or type of disease. Both procedures mean permanent loss of the eye.

Abstract
On parle d’une cataracte quand le cristallin de votre œil devient trouble ou opaque avec le temps. Le cristallin se trouve dans une capsule (ou enveloppe). Pendant la chirurgie, le cristallin opaque est enlevé, mais la capsule demeure en place. Une lentille intraoculaire est placée à l’avant de la capsule. Jusqu’à la moitié des capsules des personnes qui ont subi une chirurgie pour la cataracte deviendront brumeuses elles aussi. Quand cela se produit, la vision devient trouble. Cette opacité peut être traitée au moyen d’un laser YAG. Le laser YAG est utilisé pour faire une ouverture dans la capsule (capsulotomie), comme lorsque l’on fait un trou dans une pellicule d’emballage en plastique. La vision est généralement plus claire 1 à 2 journées après le traitement. La présente brochure explique comment se préparer, ce qui se passe pendant le traitement et à quoi s’attendre après. On y présente aussi une liste des complications possibles.
This is a French translation of the English pamphlet 0464, “YAG Laser Capsulotomy”. A cataract is when the lens in your eye gets cloudy over time. The lens sits in a capsule. 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 becomes 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.

La rétine est une membrane fine et délicate à l’arrière de l’œil. Elle transforme la lumière en images. La macula est la partie centrale et toute petite de la rétine. 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.

Vos yeux sont remplis d'un liquide fabriqué par le corps ciliaire. Ce liquide s'écoule à travers la pupille, devant le cristallin, puis sort par un drain appelé trabéculum. Le glaucome est une maladie dans laquelle une pression accrue dans l'œil endommage le nerf optique. Il survient généralement lorsque le trabéculum (drain) ne fonctionne pas et que le liquide ne peut pas s'écouler de l'œil. L'accumulation de liquide dans la partie avant de l'œil augmente la pression dans l'œil, ce qui endommage le nerf optique. Ce dommage peut d'abord entraîner une perte de la vision latérale (sur les côtés). Si elle n'est pas traitée, elle peut entraîner une perte de la vision centrale. Le présent dépliant définit le glaucome aigu et le glaucome chronique et décrit les différents examens effectués pour diagnostiquer le glaucome. Les médicaments, le laser et la chirurgie sont des traitements possibles. Des instructions sont aussi fournies pour l’utilisation des gouttes ophtalmiques.
This pamphlet is a French translation of "Glaucoma Management" pamphlet 0140. 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.
