OPHTHALMOLOGY

An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses.They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

Treatable Conditions

Dry Eyes:

Dry eye syndrome is a condition in which a person’s tears don’t have adequate lubrication or moisture to nourish the eyes. Tears help maintain the health of the front surface of the eye and to provide clear vision. Dry eye is a chronic condition that can be present among all ages. It is most commonly seen among adults over the age of 60. Dry eye is usually self-diagnose where an individual’s eye or eyes may become red, inflamed, feel gritty and of course dry. An individual may also experience sensitivity to light and scarring to the front surface of the eye. 

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a disease in which the optic nerve is pressed or the blood supply is obstructed by the rise of the intraocular pressure. This causes abnormalities of the optic nerve function. The optic nerve is a nerve that transmits the light received by the eye  to the brain. This causes a defect to appear in the field of vision and can end up with lost of sight. 

Diabetic Retinopathy:

Diabetic retinopathy is a condition when damage occurs to the retina due to diabetes, which is the leading cause of blindness.
