Ophthalmology

The specialised area of medicine known as ophthalmology is dedicated to eye health. It covers the physiology, anatomy, and disorders that could impact the eyes. Historically, all facets of visual function, both in health and disease, were covered by the science of ophthalmology. Animal eyes are also included in ophthalmology because human and animal eyes operate similarly and both species might develop eye problems.

The Department of Ophthalmology at Manipal Hospitals offers patients access to skilled diagnostics and care, including interventional procedures and surgery, as one of the most specialised ocular health practises in India.

The study of eye-related medical disorders is known as ophthalmology. Ophthalmologists are medical professionals that focus on the surgical and medical care of this organ. The medical field of ophthalmology focuses on the identification and management of eye illnesses and conditions.

Over 2 billion people worldwide are blind or have vision impairment, and at least 1 billion of those instances could have been avoided with proper medical care. Around the world, refractive errors and untreated cataracts are the leading causes of vision impairment. Most occurrences of vision impairment occur in adults over the age of 50.
