A small unaffected area of the retina leaves an individual with the potential to learn how to use residual vision, and to access and interpret less than perfect visual information.

Disorders of the cornea Keratoconus is a progressive disorder in which the cornea acquires a cone shape. It is a disease that occurs mainly in females, with an age onset around puberty. Usually it occurs in both eyes. It seems that the condition may be hereditary, but it is not known how it is transmitted.

Disorders of the aqueous humour Glaucoma impairs vision as a result of damage from increasing pressure within the eye. Pressure is created by a build up of aqueous humour, which normally drains away, leading to compression of the blood vessels supplying the optic nerve, so that nerve fibres degenerate. Where the condition is present at or soon after birth, surgery to improve drainage is usually required to prevent further damage, with further operations to keep the pressure at a safe level. Raised intra-ocular pressure alters the shape of the eyeball and the position of the lens, thus causing refractive errors.
