A Brief Look Into the Ophthalmic Medical Practice

Posted by Melissa on 4/18/2013 to Ophthalmic Discussion
Ophthalmology is a field of medicine that involves the correction of eye disorders. An ophthalmologist administers medicine and performs surgeries. Some professionals work in specific areas like cataracts, retina problems or refractive surgery. A modern, well-known development in the field is laser eye surgery. Ophthalmologists are continuing to do research to find better solutions for eye disorders that have existed for centuries.

Fixing retina problems is one area of ophthalmology. A range of different instruments are used to diagnose and treat diseases. Doctors are able to review the whole retina without making patients uncomfortable. They commonly use an electroretinogram to look at the eye’s electrical activities, which are undermined by disease. Many procedures are safe and noninvasive. In addition, an optical coherence tomography (OCT) snaps 3D pictures of the eye’s interior. Treating the retina depends on the extent of the problem. Retina transplants have been made with minimal success. At various universities, artificial retinas are being created that will stimulate the eye nerves. The retina is a vital structure that has significant effects on light and visual perception.

Glaucoma is another common disorder that involves the damage of eye nerves. Afflicted people have severely damaged vision and could go blind if they do not seek treatment. This problem is usually caused by excessive pressure in the eye. Similar to cataracts, glaucoma is a common cause of blindness. Cataracts are lens clouds that reduce sight. Many eye diseases lead to quiet vision loss that happens slowly and exhibits symptoms after the problem has progressed significantly.

Ophthalmologists are medical practitioners who treat more serious eye disorders than the optometrists who do basic checkups. People may need these screenings often if they have various diseases like diabetes and high blood pressure. All good ophthalmologists encourage people to get regular eye checkups, whether they have poor or optimal health.
