Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine which deals with eye diseases and their treatment. Opthalomologists are medical doctors who specialize in the field of Ophthalmology. Most opthalomologists also perform surgery on the eyes.


Eye Diseases

The best way to prevent eye diseases is to have regular eye checkups. Most present eye diseases can be treated with medication and surgery. However, the more severe eye diseases such as glaucoma can lead to permanent blindness. Early detection of such eye diseases reduces and eliminates the chances of further complications. Pain, double vision and discharge from the eyes are some of the symptoms that can be triggered by eye diseases.

Don’t Compromise Your Sight

An ophthalmologist (also known as an Eye M.D.) provides the full spectrum of eye care from the prescription of glasses and contact lenses to delicate and complex eye surgeries. Consulting an Eye M.D. and going for regular checkups is crucial in keeping you updated on the condition of your eyes, helping you to resolve any complications of the eyes. Personal eye care habits should be practiced as well – to prevent eyes from being exposed to bacteria and infection.
