Ophthalmology is a specialty of medicine that investigates and treats diseases related to the vision and any part of the eye. This medical specialty dedicates to the study and treatment of diseases and refractive errors presented by the eye.
Like other specialties, Ophthalmology has several sub-specialties, including: cataract, oculoplastic, diabetic diseases and age related macular degeneration, strabismus, glaucoma, cataracts, medical retina, pterygium, paediatrics, uveitis and infectious diseases.
During the consultation the specialist will measure the patient's vision, assess the degree of refraction, measure intraocular pressure (useful in preventing glaucoma), and evaluate any other measurements that might be relevant for the doctor to assess your case.
If you identify any changes that require the completion of special tests, or even the involvement of a sub-specialty your doctor will advise you. The General clinics are an opportunity for our specialists to make a full assessment and decide on the best treatment for you.
All the team at Moreton Eye Group treat general eye problems and we have a system of internal referral for those that might benefit from one of our sub-specialist services.
