Know Your Ophthalmologist

A doctor who specialises in the eyes and eyesight treatment is referred to as an ophthalmologist. An ophthalmologist has more knowledge than opticians and/or optometrists, and therefore, can offer a large number of treatments and diagnoses owing to their training and experience.

When you opt for an ophthalmologist consultation, your eyes will be examined to treat your eye-related disorders. Ophthalmologists recommend spectacles as well as contact lenses for treating visual impairments.

Ophthalmologist consultation is important to identify different health issues that are primarily related to the eyes and can help you in managing and controlling your conditions.

When should I consult an ophthalmologist?

Common health conditions that require an ophthalmologist consultation are:

  •  Frequent headaches: You should see your nearest ophthalmologist if you frequently have headaches. Several eye conditions, including serious ones like glaucoma, cause headaches.
  • Eye pain:The main cause of eye pain in the modern day is constant exposure to computer and smartphone screens. However, you must see an ophthalmologist if the pain continues for an extended period.
  • Vision issues:You may experience visual issues like double vision, halos near bright lights, eye pain, and a rise in floaters, which may be an indication of an issue with your eyes. This might potentially be a symptom of a detached retina; in such a case, you need to receive medical care right away. Without treatment, a detached retina may cause vision loss.
  • Recurrent squinting:To squint is to squeeze your eyes together to focus on the hazy images ahead of you. If you have to recurrently squint your eyes, you must have your eyes checked by an eye doctor who can recommend a set of contact lenses or spectacles.
  • Diabetes:Your doctor may have advised you to see an ophthalmologist frequently if you suffer from diabetes or if it is common in your family. Several eye conditions, including glaucoma, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy, are increased by diabetes.

What surgeries are performed by ophthalmologists?

The following common eye conditions are treated surgically by ophthalmologists:

  •  Cataract surgery:During cataract surgery, the natural lens of the eye is removed and normally substituted with an artificial lens. The lens of your eye is normally translucent. A cataract causes the lens to become cloudy, which ultimately limits vision.
  • Glaucoma surgery::Trabeculectomy is the name of the glaucoma surgery that is performed most frequently. To facilitate fluid drainage, a portion of the eye-drainage tubes should be removed.
  • Retinal detachment surgery:Retinal detachment surgery involves the reattachment of the retina to the backside of the eye and subsequent patching of any cracks or holes.
  • LASIK surgery:A form of refractive surgery is LASIK. In this type of surgery, a laser is utilised to address refractive defects that cause vision issues.
  • Eye muscle surgery for strabismus: The length of the eye muscles is changed during this type of surgery to realign the eyes.

Conditions necessitating ophthalmologist consultation

Some conditions which require the intervention of an ophthalmologist are as follows:

  •  Astigmatism:Blurred vision  results from this eye problem. Laser surgery is occasionally used to treat this condition.
  • Corneal disease::This is a disease that can harm your cornea and impair your vision.
  • Posterior vitreous detachment (PVD):You may see floaters or light flashing due to this frequent age-related eye issue.
  • Diabetes-related retinopathy:The blood vessels in the retina become weak if you have diabetic retinopathy, which is an eye disorder.
  • Age-related macular degeneration:People who have this typical age-related eye condition are unable to see what is right ahead of them.
  • Farsightedness (hyperopia):Farsighted people can focus on far objects, while they struggle with close objects. LASIK surgery can occasionally be used to fix farsightedness.
  • Amblyopia (lazy eye):The condition in which one eye weakens more than the other throughout early development is known as amblyopia or lazy eye. Glasses or an eye patch are used as treatment options.

What to expect from an ophthalmologist consultation?

The majority of standard eye exams begin with queries about your eyes. These queries can include the following questions:

  • Do you experience any eyesight or eye issues?
  • What other issues are you facing?
  • From when have you started facing these issues?
  • Have you noticed any unusual signs from the past 2 or 3 days?

Your ophthalmologist may then ask you about your experience with lenses or eyeglasses use. They gather information about your general health along with the health records of your family, which can include a specific eye condition.

To find out more information about your eyesight, an ophthalmologist will run several tests on you.

Takeaway

You should get immediate medical attention from an ophthalmologist if you suffer any odd symptoms involving your eyes. Early diagnosis of issues due to prompt ophthalmologist consultation will enable early therapy to stop the situation from getting worse.
