Ophthalmic surgery is the treatment of diseases of the eye. There are several sub-specialities that focus on certain parts of the eye including neuro-ophthalmology, ocular oncology for cancers affecting this area, paediatric ophthalmology for specific conditions related to childhood and ophthalmologic pathology.
Ophthalmic surgeons are medical professionals, who after 6 years of undergraduate medical training received focused training in the field of ophthalmic and are members of the Royal College of Surgeons. They chose to specialise in disorders of the eyes and are trained in the surgical procedures associated with this.
Many common conditions that require the expertise of an eye surgeon include cataracts, cornea disease, glaucoma, retinal disorders and ocular cancers.
Those who consult with an eye surgeon are suffering with a disease or disorder of the eye that requires surgical intervention and rehabilitation.
