What is Ophthalmology?

Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine that covers the diagnosis and treatment of all eye disorders. It deals with both medical and surgical treatment. The person who specializes in the treatment of these eye problems is called an ophthalmologist. There are other eye care professionals too, i.e., optometrists and opticians, but they are not well-versed in comprehensive eye care. If you are seeking advanced treatment for eye-related diseases, Pristyn Care is the go-to destination.

How does the eye work (eye anatomy)?

When light falls into the retina of the eye, the photoreceptors turn the light into signals. The signals travel from the retina to the brain through the optic nerve. The brain turns the signals into images that we can view.

Who are at high risk of getting vision problems?

The following people are at a comparatively higher risk of suffering from vision disorders:

  • People with Glaucoma
  • People with diabetes
  • People with high blood pressure
  • People who have a family history of vision problems

What is visual acuity?

Vision acuity is a measurement that helps to determine the eye’s capability to view very small letters or objects at a distance of 20 feet. The test is done to determine the clarity and sharpness of vision. A visual acuity test is commonly done before all vision correction tests and can be performed by an optometrist, an ophthalmologist, and an optician. The results of visual acuity are expressed in fractions, such as 20/20. If you achieve a 20/20 in your visual acuity test, it indicates that you have a healthy vision. If your visual acuity is not 20/20, you may need contact lenses, corrective glasses, and even surgery to treat your vision problem.

Does working on the computer for long hours damage the eyes?
