Harley Street Ophthalmologists
Ophthalmology is the diagnosis, treatment and research of the disease, anatomy and physiology of the eye. This covers both the medical and surgical procedures involving 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.
Ophthalmologists are medical professionals, who after 6 years of undergraduate medical training received focused training in the field of ophthalmology and are members of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists. 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 ophthalmologist include cataracts, cornea disease, glaucoma, retinal disorders and ocular cancers.
Those who seek the help of an ophthalmologist are suffering with a disease or disorder of the eye that requires either medical or surgical intervention, or both.
