Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine that deals with the diagnosis, surgical prevention, and treatment of different eye disorders. An Ophthalmologist is a medical and surgical specialist, who specializes in treating disorders of the eye, and systemic diseases that manifest in the eye or tissues surrounding it. Ophthalmologists also offer osteopathic treatments which may include the application of corrective lenses to repair vision.
The three most common and dangerous eye diseases are diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration. With the rise in diabetic patients, diabetic retinopathy has evolved into a critical issue for patients between the ages of 40-59.
