Ophthalmology is one of the most essential branches of medicine that deals with the anatomy, physiology and diseases of the eye. An Ophthalmologist is the one who are involved in medical and surgical eye disease, specialized to medically treat eye disease, implement laser therapy and perform incisional surgery as required. The best defence is to have regular check-ups because eye diseases do not always have symptoms. Early detection and treatment could prevent vision loss. Therefore, approaching an Ophthalmologist right away whenever there is a sudden change in vision, if everything looks dim, or if there are flashes of light. Other symptoms that need quick attention are pain, double vision, fluid coming from the eye and inflammation. Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases which result in damage to the optic nerve and vision loss. Risk factors for glaucoma include increased pressure in the eye, with a value of greater than 21 mmHg or 2.8 kPa. If treated early it is possible to slow or stop the progression of disease with medication, laser treatment, or surgery. About 6 to 67 million people have glaucoma globally.
Clinical research in ophthalmology division aims to assess and diagnose the visual loss due to optic nerve disease, usage of various drugs to reduce or prevent visual loss from optic nerve stroke, to prevent thyroid eye disease and to investigate periocular trauma and optic nerve.
