What is Ophtalmology?

Anytime we have a problem with our vision, we fret and wonder who to visit. Well, the answer to that question is an Ophtalmologist. Simply put, ophthalmology is the branch of medicine that deals with vision and eye care. This is different from the eye care professionals who provide eyewear and eye care. The doctors who are qualified as Ophtalmologists are those who have the expertise to diagnose and treat various eye problems and help restore vision to its normal quality.

An ophtalmologist is a part of the eye and vision care team along with other members like optometrists, opticians, and ophtalmic technicians. An ophtalmologist is also capable of performing surgical procedures for conditions of the eye that requires a surgical solution. Basically, ophtalmologists provide eye treatments.

Some eye infections resolve on their own or even respond to simple home remedies. There are some conditions and some patients with low immunity where the infection can lead to permanent loss of vision. It is always advisable to consult a specialist.
Some eye infections can clear up on their own within a period of 7 to 14 days. If they don’t, it is highly recommended that one visits an ophtalmologist. Wockhardt Hospitals has a leading team of ophthalmologists who can help resolve the condition.
Some home remedies to relax the eyes:
  1. Saline rinse
  2. Tea bags over the eyelids
  3. Warm compress
  4. Cold compress
It is always advisable to consult a doctor for any condition of their eye rather than to try to treat it by oneself. However, these are not replacements for a medical consult.
The body automatically resolves an eye infection, provided it is not something too serious. Common eye treatments include cold and warm compresses to relieve the irritation and gentle wash with saline.
Not all conditions can be improved. Conditions like short and long-sightedness and astigmatism cannot be corrected. One can train the eyes, which helps in some conditions for better focus and alignment. However, timely treatment is extremely important in all cases. It is wise to consult a doctor when experiencing any symptoms.
