Ophthalmologists are a special breed of physician. While they work long hours, study hard, and are gifted with excellent memories and a knack for detail, they’re also vital to the health of millions of Americans.When the average person goes to the doctor to obtain corrective lenses (i.e. glasses), they visit an optometrist – a specialist who can correctly diagnose and treat difficulties with long or short range vision. The optometrist can check for astigmatism, color blindness, etc., and can assign the patient to his or her ideal corrective lenses However, when it comes to more complicated issues related to the eye, an ophthalmologist is the specialist to seek. Ophthalmologists are actually both surgical and medical specialists. In addition to attending medical school, they complete a four-year residency program in ophthalmology that emphasizes patient care, diagnosis and treatment of common eye diseases, and follow-up care.
A fellowship may even be completed that complements the residency training – for example – ocular oncology.Some common ailments treated by ophthalmologists include cataracts, cornea diseases, glaucoma, and cancers of the eye. Ophthalmologists are also able to carry out laser treatment of the retina when needed. Eye injuries involving foreign objects that enter the eye (such as might occur in construction workers or contractors) are also treated by ophthalmologists.Ophthalmology jobs are expected to increase in coming years as the US population ages and the baby boomer segment of society begins to seek treatment for common age-related difficulties. For example, glaucoma is a disease that if caught at an early stage and treated, can prevent vision loss in the elderly.
What Is Glaucoma?
Glaucoma a leading cause of blindness in the world, especially for older people. However visual loss is preventable or stabilized with early diagnosis and treatment.Glaucoma is a condition of the eye where the optic nerve is damaged. The optic nerve carries images to the brain, which are then perceived as vision. Minute nerve fibres from various parts of the retina join to form the optic nerve. Glaucoma results when the pressure within the eye is high enough to be detrimental to the normal functioning of these nerve fibres, some of which stop functioning. Non-functional nerve fibres result in a loss of retinal function in the area from where they originate, leading to defects in the field of vision..The disease is called the `sneak thief of sight´ because it is painless, without symptoms and irreversible. Therefore, the person with glaucoma is usually unaware of it until much loss of vision has occurred.
In fact, half of those suffering damage from glaucoma do not know it. Currently, damage from glaucoma cannot be reversed and if the entire nerve is damaged, blindness results. Early detection and regular treatment are the keys to preventing optic nerve damage and blindness from glaucoma.What Causes Glaucoma?The aqueous humour is the clear fluid circulating within and nourishing some parts of the eye which have no blood supply. ‘Normal’ individuals have an equal production and drainage of this fluid resulting in a constant pressure within the eye. If the drainage is compromised due to any reason, there is a pressure build-up in the eye, which can damage the optic nerve.
What Are The Different Types Of Glaucoma?
A Chronic open-angle glaucoma
Most common type of glaucoma; damages vision gradually and painlessly. The pressure is rarely high enough to be symptomatic.Angle-closure glaucoma
An acute attack of glaucoma caused by sudden blockage of the drainage channels leading to a sharp rise in pressure within the eye.
