Ophthalmology - Overview

What is ophthalmology?

Ophthalmology is the field of medicine that studies the anatomy, physiology, and diseases of the eyeball.

The eye, its surrounding structures, and the visual system, can be affected by a number of clinical conditions.

Ophthalmologists are trained eye specialists responsible for all eye-related issues including:

  • Diagnosis and treatment of all eye conditions
  • Preservation of vision through medical treatment of eye diseases and correction of refractive errors by lens prescription or laser surgery
  • Performing surgical procedures such as cataract extraction, retinal detachment repair, cornea reshaping, corneal transplants, and treatment of glaucoma
