In most cases, different pigmentation of the iris is a genetic disorder that passes from generation to generation. According to medical statistics, it occurs in 10 out of 1000 people.

Tritanopia: the world in a changed color

Anophthalmia: when you can not see the world with your own eyes

Deuteranopia - lack of color vision

What it is? This is such a lack of color vision, when the retina does not respond to the green color of the spectrum. In ICD-10, this visual impairment, like other color perception abnormalities, has the code - H53.5


To see the world in colors allows our visual system's ability to perceive waves of light radiation of various lengths, corresponding to colors and shades, and transform them into a holistic sense of a color picture of the surrounding reality. 


Inflammatory processes affecting the organs of vision are considered one of the most serious problems in clinical ophthalmology, because the inflammatory reaction can cause dangerous and often irreversible disturbances in the eye tissues.
