Ophthalmology Ailments and Indications
Ophthalmology refers to the study of medical and surgical issues associated with a patient’s eyes. The eye is a very delicate part of the human body, so they must be treated with special care. Our ophthalmology studies refer specifically to Glaucoma, Cataracts and a few other issues.
Glaucoma is an ailment that causes pressure within your eyeballs. This pressure slowly diminishes vision and can eventually lead to blindness. The blindness that Glaucoma causes is irreversible, so it is essential to catch Glaucoma early. If you are feeling pressure in your eyeballs make sure to see a doctor.
Cataract / Implant Surgery
A cataract is a clouding of the eye that can cause vision issues and blurred vision. If you have a cataract, the best resolution is getting Cataract and Implant surgery. Cataract surgery is a procedure to remove the lens of the afflicted eye and replace it with an artificial lens, also known as an implant.
Retinitis Pigmentosa is a disease that hurts the eyes ability to respond to light. This disease begins by diminishing the ability to see at night and see out of the side of the eye, also known as peripheral vision. Over time, Retinitis Pigmentosa leads to blindness.
