Glaucoma is a chronic, progressive, degenerative disorder of the optic nerve that produces characteristic visual field damage. Glaucoma is the second cause of blindness, and importantly it is irreversible. Any group of related eye disorders characterized by increased pressure within the eye which impairs the vision and may slowly cause eye damage and total loss of vision. In many cases glaucoma may be asymptomatic, meaning it shows no symptoms half of those living with glaucoma are unware that they are affected.

The retina is the layer of specialized nerve tissue lining the back of the eye that allows you to see. The retina is very loosely attached to the back of the eye and in some cases, it may become detached. When the retina detaches, it is lifted from its normal position by fluid that accumulates between the retina and the eye wall. A detached retina is disconnected from its oxygen and nutrition supply. A hole or tear in the retina causes a retinal detachment. The presence of this hole or tear allows fluid to get underneath the retina and displace it from its nutrition source. Retinal detachments can develop at any age but tend to occur more commonly in the elderly. Retinal detachments usually occur around the time that the vitreous separates from the retina (PVD). Most PVDs causes no long-term damage to the eye, but in some individuals, they result in retinal tears that can then lead to a retinal detachment.

The cornea is the outermost clear, transparent integral layer located in the front of the iris and pupil. It is responsible for the involuntary eyelids reflex and helps to focus the light on the retina. Any change in the cornea layer consistency causes altered vision. With a decrease in transparency of this layer, blurred vision can occur.
Treatments might include medications, laser treatment, or surgery, depending on the condition. Infections are treated with medicated eyedrops (antibiotics, antivirals, and antiparasitics) and, in some cases, oral medication. Herpetic stromal keratitis is a recurring swelling that develops after a herpes eye infection and is managed with anti-inflammatory steroid eye drops.
An abrasion might require temporary patching or a bandage contact lens, depending on the cause and extent of the injury.

Ocular oncology is the branch of medicine dealing with tumours relating to the eye and its adnexa. Eye cancer can affect all parts of the eye. Eye neoplasms are benign or malignant (cancerous) tumours that occur in or around the eye. Eye cancer is rare in comparison to other cancerous tumours. Benign tumours may also be called dermoid cysts. Malignant tumours may be either rhabdomyosarcoma or retinoblastoma, and can be primary, starting within the eye, or secondary (metastatic), spreading to the eye from another organ. Most eye tumours are metastatic— usually starting in the breast, lung, bowel or prostate.
Two types of primary tumours develop within the eye itself
- Retinoblastoma in children
- Ocular melanoma in adults.
Retinoblastoma: Retinoblastoma is a cancer of the eye that begins in the retina, the eye’s light-sensitive tissue. It is a rare form of cancer, though the most common eye cancer that affects children under five years of age.
Ocular Melanoma: Ocular melanoma is a rare form of cancer that occurs in the pigment producing cells of your eyes. Ocular melanomas usually develop in the middle of the three layers of your eye, called the uvea. In rare cases, the melanoma can also develop on the conjunctiva. When tumours develop inside and around the eye, a specialized team of doctors— including ophthalmologists, oncologists, radiation specialists, and surgeons are called upon to provide the best possible care for preservation of life, vision, and cosmetic appearance.

Dry eye disease (also known as dry eye syndrome) is a common condition that can affect your quality of life. Dry eyes can make your eyes feel sore and gritty and make your vision blurry. If you have dry eye disease, your eyes my feel sensitive to light, they may sting or burn, or look red. Your eyelids may be sticky when you wake up. Sometimes dry eye disease can cause excess tearing. You might also have blepharitis (inflamed eyelids). You may feel a sensation of something in your eye and you may have difficulty wearing contact lenses. Your tear film is made up of 3 layers: fatty oils, watery tears and mucus. When your tears are working normally these 3 components keep your eyes smoothly lubricated. If you have a problem with 1 of these 3 layers you may develop dry eye disease.
Normally your cornea, the clear outer lens or "windshield" of the eye, has a dome shape, like a ball. Sometimes the structure isn’t strong enough to hold its round shape and it bulges outward, like a cone. This is called keratoconus.
It impossible for your eye to focus without glasses or contact lenses. In fact, you may need a corneal transplant to restore your sight if the condition gets bad enough.
A treatment called cornea collagen crosslinking may stop the condition from getting worse. Or your doctor could implant a ring called an Intacs under the cornea’s surface to flatten the cone shape and improve vision.

Neuro-ophthalmology is an ophthalmic subspecialty that merges the fields of ophthalmology and neurology. This super speciality field deals with neurological problems associated with the eyes and also deal with the nervous system’s many complex diseases that affect vision, eye alignment, and many optic nerve disorders. They have a unique ability to diagnose and evaluate patients from medical, ophthalmic, and neurologic standpoints to treat neuro-ophthalmologic disorders.

Ophthalmology surgery is also known as ocular surgery. Ophthalmologic surgery is a surgical procedure performed on the eye or any part of the eye. Surgery on the eye is routinely performed to repair retinal defects, remove cataracts or cancer, or to repair eye muscles. The most common purpose of ophthalmologic surgery is to restore or improve vision.

Diabetic Retinopathy (DR) is the leading cause of vision deterioration and blindness across the globe. It is a complication of diabetes affecting the eyes. Among the almost 300 million people who have diabetes, about one-third of them develop Diabetic Retinopathy (DR). Read on to find out what diabetic retinopathy is, its risks and symptoms, whether it is reversible, and how to live with this disease.

Refractive surgery can correct refractive errors like Myopia, Hyperopia and astigmatism. Some of these surgeries reshape the cornea. Others implant a lens in your eye. These surgeries focus light correctly on the retina so you can see more clearly.
The most well-known refractive mistakes in youngsters are:
- Myopia (otherwise called near-sightedness)
- Hyperopia (additionally called farsightedness)
- Astigmatism (contorted vision)
It is conceivable to have at least two kinds of refractive mistake in the meantime.
Near-sightedness: A near-sighted eye is longer than ordinary or has a cornea that is excessively steep, with the goal that the light beams center before the retina. Close protests look clear, however removed items seem obscured.
Hyperopia: A hyperopic eye is shorter than typical. Light from close protests can't center obviously around the retina. The words on a page will appear to be hazy, or it will be hard to see all around ok to do quit for the day, such as threading a needle.
Astigmatism: Astigmatism contorts or obscures vision for both close and far items. It's relatively similar to investigating a fun house reflects in which you show up excessively tall, too wide or too thin. A typical cornea is round and smooth, similar to a ball. It is conceivable to have astigmatism in blend with near-sightedness or hyperopia.

Strabismus is a failure of the two eyes to maintain proper alignment and work together as a team. One eye turns inwards, upwards, downwards, or outwards, while the other one focuses at one spot. This typically happens as a result of the muscles that management the movement of the attention and therefore the protective folds, the extra ocular muscles, aren’t operating along.

Uveitis could be a form of inflammation to the center layer of the attention (uvea), structure typically contains the iris, membrane and choroid coat. The causes of uveitis area unit of various varieties starting from a straightforward microorganism Infection to severe eye injury, studies show that the presence of inflammatory disease, AIDS, skin condition will increase the probabilities of uveitis. During this the inner a part of the attention turns to red in color, thanks to this pain, blurred vision and picture sensitivity happens. Prompt use of anti-bacterial will treat the condition otherwise their area unit high probabilities that it should cause eye disease, cataract etc..,

Light, like radio, consists of electromagnetic waves. The major difference between the two is that light waves are much shorter than radio waves. The use of electromagnetic waves for long-distance communications was the beginning of an industry known first as wireless and later as radio. This industry was the foundation for electronics, which brought the world so many fascinating technologies. The word LASER stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. A laser is a device that emits a concentrated beam of photons, which are the basic units of electromagnetic radiation.

Conjunctivitis, or pink eye, is an irritation or inflammation of the conjunctiva, which covers the white part of the eyeball. It can be caused by allergies or a bacterial or viral infection. Conjunctivitis can be extremely contagious and is spread by contact with eye secretions from someone who is infected.
Symptoms include redness, itching and tearing of the eyes. It can also lead to discharge or crusting around the eyes. It's important to stop wearing contact lenses whilst affected by conjunctivitis. It often resolves on its own, but treatment can speed the recovery process. Allergic conjunctivitis can be treated with antihistamines. Bacterial conjunctivitis can be treated with antibiotic eye drops.

A cataract is a clouding of the natural lens of the eye. This clouding of the eye prevents light rays from entering the lens and focusing on the retina. The retina is a light-sensitive tissue lining of the eye and is located at the back of the eye. This cloudiness occurs when some of the proteins from the eye's lens start to alter their shape and obstruct the vision.
There are three basic techniques for cataract surgery
1. Phacoemulsification: This is the most common form of cataract removal as explained above. In this most modern method, cataract surgery can usually be performed in less than 30 minutes and usually requires only minimal sedation and numbing drops, no stitches to close the wound, and no eye patch after surgery.
2. Extracapsular cataract surgery: This procedure is used mainly for very advanced cataracts where the lens is too dense to dissolve into fragments (phacoemulsify) or in facilities that do not have phacoemulsification technology. This technique requires a larger incision so that the cataract can be removed in one piece without being fragmented inside the eye. An artificial lens is placed in the same capsular bag as with the phacoemulsification technique. This surgical technique requires a various number of sutures to close the larger wound, and visual recovery is often slower. Extracapsular cataract extraction usually requires an injection of numbing medication around the eye and an eye patch after surgery.
3. Intracapsular cataract surgery: This surgical technique requires an even larger wound than extracapsular surgery, and the surgeon removes the entire lens and the surrounding capsule together. This technique requires the intraocular lens to be placed in a different location, in front of the iris. This method is rarely used today but can be still be useful in cases of significant trauma.

Macular degeneration is an eye disease that affects central vision. This means that people with macular degeneration can’t see things directly in front of them. This common age-related eye condition mostly occurs in people over the age of 50.
Macular degeneration affects your macula, the central part of your retina. Your retina is in the back of your eye and controls central vision. People with macular degeneration aren’t completely blind. Their peripheral vision (ability to see things off to the sides) is fine.

Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine deals with such significant diseases as cataracts, blindness, glaucoma and macular degeneration. In order for ophthalmologists to provide the patients with effective and responsible treatment, it is crucial to use ophthalmology equipment made in accordance to high quality standards.
Technological advancements are playing a pivotal role in improving the early detection and management of glaucoma: Advanced Imaging Techniques: Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has transformed the assessment of optic nerve and retinal nerve fibre layer thickness, aiding in the early diagnosis of glaucoma.
