In Marvel multi-speciality hospital ophthalmology is a branch of medicine that deals with the anatomy, physiology, treatment and surgery of the visual pathways of the eye, including surrounding areas and the visual aspects of the brain. Depending on your symptoms and the results of the tests, the ophthalmologist will decide on the most appropriate treatment to improve eye function or prevent current symptoms from worsening. Among possible treatments for eye conditions include prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses to correct vision and medication such as pills or eye drops. An ophthalmologist is a medical doctor who specializes in total eye care including the diagnosis, management, and treatment of eye conditions and injuries. Ophthalmologists are trained to provide a wide variety of eye care services, which can range from prescribing eyeglasses or contact lenses to performing eye surgery whenever necessary. Apart from patient care, ophthalmologists may also be involved in scientific research to determine causes and cures for vision problems or eye diseases.
