Optic Pathology

by Richard Mitchell, MD

Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine concerned with studying the structure, function, and diseases of the eye. It relies on the previous comprehension of the anatomy and physiology of the related structures, including the eyelid, lacrimal apparatus, extraocular muscles, ocular globe, and visual pathway.

A solid grasp of these structures allows for the early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of dozens of conditions. Likewise, mastery of the medications used within this field is crucial. Physicians must be familiar with the basic concepts of ophthalmology and common ocular pathologies since complaints related to the eyes, such as redness, pain, and changes in visual acuity, are very frequent in clinical practice.

No detail explanation on medical and surgical management
By Vagdevi D. on 14. October 2022 for Introduction to Ophthalmology

There is not much information available on the treatment side i.e surgeries procedures for cataract in detail or not much about surgeries done ? for retinoblastoma ,retinitis pigmentosa not much focus on investigations done and treatment medical and surgical procedures explanation .which is equally important as etiology and pathology in our curriculum.so i am only disappointed with this aspect only if you change this i can be fully satisfied otherwise the teaching is unremarkable
