Ophthalmology

Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine which deals in diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the eye and visual cortex. The eye, its orbit, and the visual system can be affected by various kinds of diseases, degeneration, and injuries. Most common eye diseases are –

  • Cataracts – this is perhaps the most common eye diseases in India. In Cataract, clouding of the lens makes a person virtually blind. With time cataracts get worse. However, the surgery for correcting cataract is easy, and the procedure takes only about 30 minutes and patients can resume their lives after a week worth of rest.
  • Diabetic Retinopathy – it’s the most common eye disease involving diabetic patients. It occurs when the blood vessels in the retina get damaged due to high blood sugar levels. In the initial stages, the blood vessels leak fluid in the eye, as time passes on and the abnormal blood vessels cause swelling resulting in retinal detachment, which can result in irreversible loss of sight. It is highly recommended for people with Diabetes to go for a regular eye examination.
  • Macular Degeneration – degeneration of the part of the retina which lets us see fine details. This results in a hazy vision.
  • Refractive Errors – when light passes through the cornea, it is bent or refracted, which forms images we see. If the refraction is crooked, the vision is hampered. Majority population suffers from such errors, therefore, we wear eyeglasses to help us with our vision.
