Here's the list I wanted to share with you guys.

Most common conditions causing visual impairment

  • Astigmatism (distorted vision)
  • Hyperopia (farsightedness)
  • Myopia (nearsightedness)
  • Presbyopia (aging eyes)
  • Strabismus (cross eye/turned vision)
Most common conditions causing blindness:
  • Amblyopia
  • Cataracts
  • Color Blindness
  • Diabetic Retinopathy
  • Glaucoma
  • Macular Degeneration
  • Retinal Detachment
  • Retinitis Pigmentosa
  • Retinopathy of Prematurity
  • Uveitis
If it's not on the list it's either a rare eye condition or only found in 3rd world countries.

I do have updated HTML coding for all pages and am now waiting for permission to use the diagrams. See you can use the content from the site so long you credit each page from where you got it. That it's not altered in any way. That you're not using it for commercial use. Finally not saving said info on CDs and publishing it for commercial use... Oh yeah and the website where I got the content wants a TOS page linked on the eye conditions start page. Just to make sure visitors understand that only I got permission to use the info and diagrams. That neither Blind VI nor the site I'm crediting is held accountable for any damage or misinformation. So once that gets made (it will be linked on here just like the copyright page.) and the author contacts me we're good to go.
