Ophthalmology

The specialty deals with the diagnosis and treatment of disorders and diseases affecting the visual system: vision disorders, eye diseases, and conditions affecting the surrounding structures of the eye: eyelids, glands, and tear ducts. Thanks to state-of-the-art tools used to perform all the main diagnostic tests, visual defects and eye pathologies are detected.

Related to the anterior and posterior segments of this organ: any degree of myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, presbyopia, cataracts, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, retinal detachment, and other retinal diseases, keratoconus, corneal diseases, lacrimal gland pathologies (“dry eye”), inflammations, tumors.

Ophthalmology visit and depth tests

In addition to a thorough personal and family medical history, the specialist, in order to carry out targeted investigations to accurately assess the patient’s visual conditions and consequently their clinical status, uses a corneal topographer, slit lamp, pneumotonometer, autorefractor, computerized perimeter, optical coherence tomography (OCT), and biometer.

Some ocular pathologies may be due to systemic diseases, such as diabetes (diabetic retinopathy), or hereditary conditions, so the ophthalmologist often requests complementary blood tests and instrumental examinations.
