Ophthalmology in India

What is Ophthalmology ?

Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine dealing with the anatomy, physiology and diseases of the eye. All evaluations that purport to diagnose eye disease should be carried out by a physician. An ophthalmologist is a doctor of medicine who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the eye, in addition to diagnosing systemic disease that manifest in eye signs or symptoms. Since ophthalmologists perform operations on eyes, they are considered to be both surgical and medical specialists.
The word 'ophthalmology' comes from the Greek roots 'ophthalmos', meaning eye and 'logos' meaning word, thought, or discourse. Ophthalmology literally means 'the science of eyes'. Ophthalmology treatment in India is one of the world's best. Trained medical practioners study and practice this branch of medicine in top hospitals of the country.
