7. What to Inform Your Doctor Before Taking Steroid Tablets. Steroids are the common name for corticosteroid medications. They are used to treat edema and inflammation in the eyes and other regions of the body. Anabolic steroids are not the same as corticosteroids.

5. Histoplasmosis: What to Know. Histoplasmosis is a disease that is contracted by inhaling infected airborne spores. The fungus Histoplasma capsulatum produces the spores that cause it. For short, this microscopic fungus is known as histo. When people disturb the soil by plowing fields, sweeping chicken coops, or digging holes, it gets into the air. Histoplasmosis is transmitted through the lungs. Doctors believe that the infection will spread to the eye through the bloodstream, even if it is minor. It can cause a severe eye disorder called presumed ocular histoplasmosis syndrome (POHS) if it gets into the eye. POHS is the leading cause of vision loss in people aged 20 to 40 in the United States. → Link

2. What is Contrast Sensitivity Testing?

1. What Is Amblyopia? Amblyopia is known to be the medical term for a lazy eye which is a disorder associated with vision development. Having a lazy eye means the normal visual acuity is not achieved even with the help of eyeglasses or contact lenses. The occurrences of having lazy eyes are in the early stages of life such as during infancy and childhood. If it is detected and treated early, developing poor vision can be avoided. Untreated lazy eye can cause permanent vision loss. → Link
