External Eye Diseases

by Richard Mitchell, MD, PhD

Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine concerned with studying the structure, function, and diseases of the eye. This includes conditions that affect the external structures of the eye, such as the eyelid, lacrimal apparatus, conjunctiva, and extraocular muscles. These conditions can include inflammatory pathologies, infectious agents, or autoimmune conditions, and palsy of the cranial nerves that innervate the eye movements. A solid grasp of the relevant anatomy and physiology allows for the early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of these conditions.
