Ophthalmology

Over the ages, the understanding of anatomy and physiology of the eye has been developed a lot and various major breakthroughs took place. Ophthalmology is a branch of surgery and medicine which deals with the treatment and diagnosis of eye disorders and diseases. A specialist in ophthalmology is called as ophthalmologist. They diagnose and treat various eye problems by including surgery and therapy. The examination of eye is also a necessary task for ophthalmologists. To become an ophthalmologist, one should complete their 4 year graduation and 1 year post graduation. Also they must undergo training of a year or two with specialization on different fields of ophthalmology such as cornea, retina, pediatrics, refractive surgery, glaucoma, uveitis, neuro-ophthalmology and ocular oncology [3].

Eye disorders and diseases include glaucoma, uveitis, cataracts, red eyes, vision loss, double vision, dry eyes, diabetic retinopathy, proptosis, eye tumors, excessive tearing, macular degeneration, strabismus and many other eye related problems. The methods of diagnosis of eye problems include refraction, slit lamp examination, visual activity, ocular tonometry and retina examination [4].

The conditions which lead to visit an ophthalmologist include bulging eyes, excessive tearing, misaligned eyes, black specks or strings called floaters in the field of view, unexplained eye redness, loss of peripheral vision, eyelid abnormalities or problems, seeing colored circles or halos around lights, seeing flashes of light, reduced, distorted, blocked or double vision, sudden vision loss or changes, sudden or severe eye pain, eye injury, a family history of eye conditions, HIV, thyroid conditions such as Graves’ disease, high blood pressure and diabetes [5].
