Blue Cone Monochromacy[edit]

Hi, I'm Renata Sarno, from BCM Families, a group of patients with Blue Cone Monochromacy. BCM is a rare well defined genetic disorder of the macula. It will be very important to have a separate page for this disorder and do not mix everything inside color blindness or monochromacy. Another macula genetic disorder is Achromatopsia. While BCM is inherited with the X Chromosome, Achromatopsia is inherited with Chromosome 8 or 2 or 1 or 10. Achromatopsia is a different disorder with sharing some symptoms with BCM. Moreover the name Rod Monochromacy for Achromatopsia doesn't seem to be the right one. Please do some order inside the wikipedia pages, creating a new page for Blue Cone Monochromacy. thank you Renata — Preceding unsigned comment added by Renata.sarno (talkcontribs) 16:34, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

Information about uveitis[edit]

Dear clients ,

I am from Indonesia. I need information about uveitis. I do not know anything about uveitis. By the way, my english is not too good but I need to write in English cause this is english-based website.

For about 3 years, my wife (34 years old) have gotten uveitis in her left eye. We had consulted it to the doctor (specialized in eye medication). Also, my wife had run eye surgery (not laser surgery) but her eye is not getting better but it is getting worst (now she can not see object clearly only blur sight or in short my wife only can see colors).

It's about 2 years ago she had run also laser surgery for her left eye. But her eye is not getting better too. Now,her right eye has indications like the left when it had first gotten uveitis.
I am so afraid that she will be blind. Please, I need information. Cause, we have run all we can to cure her two eyes.

You can send information to my email:

Thank you very much for all information. Arief Anang


Should probably be included. I have no idea what the code would be, nor do I know anything that wouldn't be in this source. - Taxman Talk 22:40, 20 March 2006 (UTC)

Cone-rod dystrophy[edit]

Also known as CRD or CORD, should also be on here. Various strains of CORD had been misdiagnosed as either macular degeneration or retinitis pigmentosa until recent years and the disease is rare, but I do know several Wiki users that have it! Morganfitzp 15:24, 8 May 2006 (UTC)

Dry eye syndrome[edit]

Can someone fix up to distinguish keratoconjunctivitis sicca aka Sjogren's syndrome [M35.0D, H19.3A], from dry eye syndrome which is due to insufficient/defective tear production [H04.1] as per WHO standard?

I had what is commonly called a squint when I was born. Does anyone know what it's real name is and if it's in this article. Was interested in readying the article. Jimmmmmmmmm 23:47, 27 July 2006 (UTC)

Its called heterotropia.

How detailed should this article be?[edit]

Currently, the article is not as specific as the entire ICD-10 H section ( since doing so would be merely copying everything. I added a great deal of information to the H30-H36 section. The question is, how detailed should this list be, and what details should it include? Adavis444 (talk) 04:18, 29 July 2010 (UTC)

Move to List of eye diseases?[edit]

Since this article is very much a list, does anyone else think it would be a good idea to move it? -download ׀ message 01:02, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

Redirect and disambiguation pages[edit]

Individual articles should be broken out from this. For instance "Eye infection" redirects to this page. It would make more sense to have "Eye infection" redirecting to Conjunctivitis or another disambiguation page such as "Eye infections". This is probably true for a bunch of other diseases included here. Peteruetz (talk) 16:32, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
