Ophthalmology is the practice of vision and eye related medicine, including the diagnosis, treatment, and surgical procedures utilized within the field. A strong background in education and training is required to become a state licensed and certified ophthalmologist. Attorneys and insurance professionals need to retain ophthalmologists to support various cases, including medical malpractice, disability claims, personal injury, and other cases involving eye injury.
There are numerous diseases that can occur within the eye, including issues with glaucoma, cataracts, dry eyes, macular degeneration, trauma, corneal diseases and infections, keratoconus, astigmatism, and other health concerns that cause vision loss. Unlike optometrists, ophthalmologists are licensed to practice surgery related to the eye. Ophthalmologic surgery includes laser and LASIK surgery, cornea transplants, cornea topography, refractive surgery, ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery, intraocular lens implants, cataract surgery, astigmatism surgery, pterygium surgery, intacs surgery, and other related procedures.
