An ophthalmologist is a specialist in treatment of vision disorders and eye care. An ophthalmologist can perform diagnoses and treatment for all eye related disorders such as glaucoma, issues related with vision, loss of vision, eye pain, any physical changes in the eye, fixing of contact lenses, and eyeglasses. Many trained ophthalmologists also perform scientific research and try to find out solutions to several eye and vision disorders.

Glaucoma: Glaucoma caused due to excess pressure in the eyes (ocular hypertension) is a common disorder in the elderly and can cause permanent damage to the optic nerve which transmits information to the brain. 

Cataract: It is a disease in which the eye lens becomes cloudy due to deposition of proteins. This causes an obstruction in the vision, double vision, and blurry vision.

Retinal diseases: These disorders include the problems in retina, the most critical part of the eye responsible for vision. Retinal diseases include retinal tear, detachment of retina, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, and macular hole. 

Paediatric Eye Conditions: These eye conditions emerge in the childhood and include common paediatric issues such as astigmatism, childhood tearing, amblyopia or lazy eyes, developmental abnormalities, and cortical visual impairment.   These are treated by the eye specialists.
