What is ophthalmology ?

Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine concerned with the treatment of ocular and associated diseases. It is a medical and surgical discipline. The specialist of ophthalmology is called an ophthalmologist.

In which case consult an ophthalmologist ?

Ocular health must be the subject of special precautions. Indeed, neglect in vision changes and omissions of examinations are likely to hinder the ability of eyes. So, quickly consult a specialist in the presence of the following signs:

  • Changes in color vision
  • Physical changes to the eye, such as outward, inward, upward or downward eyes, and possible signs of infection
  • Changes in the field of vision such as veiled vision, black spots, shadows, blurred vision in the center or on the periphery
  • Changes in the view in the form of flashes, sudden flashes, netting or jets, fuzzy faces, distortions or wavy lines
  • Loss of vision or vision failure in one or both eyes
