Ophthalmology

Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine which deals with the treatment, diagnosis and prevention of diseases of the eye and the visual system. The eye and the surrounding structures and the entire visual system can get affected by a large number of medical conditions. The department of ophthalmology involves the diagnosis and therapy of various such conditions along with microsurgery.

Eye health is gaining much popularity not only among the ageing population but also among people belonging to various age groups. Age-related disorders are affecting a huge population and can be successfully treated if detected early. They can be managed effectively with various medicines and treatments.

Cataracts and age-related macular degeneration are the main conditions affecting a huge population all over the world. A large number of people aged 65 and above have some degree of visual impairment or the other.

An ophthalmologist is a medical doctor who specializes in vision and eye care. They are trained to perform all sorts of examinations of the eyes, diagnose and treat the diseases, prescribe the medications and perform the surgeries if required.

The Departments

Some of the serious eye conditions which are treated are:

Glaucoma: This is an eye condition which can even lead to the damage of the optic nerve. This nerve plays a very important role in transmitting the signal from the eye to the brain and vice versa. Increased pressure in the eye causes glaucoma and results in loss of vision. Treatments like laser surgery, trabeculoplasty, microscopic filtering surgery etc. are done to ensure the least damage.

Diabetic Retinopathy: This is a disease which damages the small blood vessels in the retina. Diabetes can affect the retina of the eye seriously and has no symptom until the eyes are damaged severely. Laser surgery, periocular injection or intraocular injection of steroids can help a lot. Microsurgery also helps in achieving good visual results.
