An Ophthalmologist is a specialised doctor for the medical and surgical care of your eyes. They specialise either in osteopathy or medicine. They undertake vision check, eye examinations, medical and surgical interventions and investigates and cure eye diseases that may arise from other health issues, like diabetes.
You need to visit an Ophthalmologist to avoid ‘silent’ ailments like glaucoma, cataracts, diabetic retina therapy and macular degeneration which increases with aging. An annual eye check-up not only helps in detecting weak vision but also ailments like diabetes and arthritis that affect your vision. Consultation and diagnosis by an Ophthalmologist can correct the changes that are creating hindrance in the field of vision like wavy or blurry vision, flashes of light as well as physical changes in your eyes like crossed eyes, redness, sudden swelling, and discharge.
There are two categories of eye doctors depending on their subject of sub-specialisation and interest. Specialisation in Anterior Segment Surgery makes the doctor highly efficient in complex surgeries involving the iris, cornea, lens and ciliary bodies. Specialists in cornea and refractive surgery perform corneal refractive and corneal transplant surgeries. Neuro Ophthalmologists use non-surgical techniques to restore damaged optic nerve and other neurological complexities. Ocular Oncologists treat patients with ocular cancer.
