Sessions and tracks
Session 1 Eye Surgery:
Eye surgery is a popular treatment for eye problems. It reduces the need for eye glasses or contact lenses. Surgery procedures can help correct refractive errors. Refractive errors cause light from an object to be imprecisely focused on the retina of the eye.
Refractive Eye surgery is the term used to describe surgical procedures that correct common vision problems i.e. near-sightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia to reduce or eliminate the dependence on prescription eye-glasses or contact lenses.
Session 2 Oculoplastic Surgery:
Oculoplastic surgeons are ophthalmologists who specialize in plastic and reconstructive surgery of the periorbital and facial tissues including the eyelids, eyebrows, forehead, cheeks, orbit and tear system. Our doctors are trained to do a variety of eyelid and facial surgery for adults and children.
Oculoplastic surgery is used to treat conditions ranging from drooping eyelids and blocked tear ducts to orbital fractures and tumors of the eye. While oculoplastic surgery is often medically necessary, many people choose to have surgery for purely cosmetic reasons
Session 3 Vitreoretinal surgery:
Vetreoretinal Surgery refers to operations to treat eye problems which is involving the retina, macula and vitreous fluid. These include retinal detachment, macular hole and complications related to diabetic retinopathy.
Session 4 Corneal Disease:
Corneal disease is a major condition that can cause clouding, distortion, scarring and eventually blindness. There are many types of corneal disease. The three major types are keratoconus, Fuchs' endothelial dystrophy and bullous keratopathy.
Fuchs' endothelial dystrophy
Session 5 Corneal dystrophies :
Corneal dystrophies are a group of genetic, often progressive, eye disorders in which abnormal material often accumulates in the transparent outer layer of the cornea. Corneal dystrophies may not cause asymptomatic in some individuals, in others they may cause significant vision impairment.
Anterior Corneal Dystrophies
Stromal Corneal Dystrophies
Posterior Corneal Dystrophies
Session 6 Vision Impairment and Chronic Disease :
Visual impairment, also known as vision impairment or vision loss. This is a decreased ability to see to a degree that causes problems not fixable by usual means, such as glasses. Some also include those who have a decreased ability to see because they do not have access to glasses or contact lenses.
uncorrected refractive errors
Session 7 Visual Vertigo :
Visual Vertigo or dizziness can be caused by a number of factors, poor eyesight and eye strain are two of the most common catalysts for the disorienting sensation. Anything that requires the eye muscles to strain in order to accurately aim at an object can lead to dizziness.
Session 8 Behavioural Optometrist :
A Behavioural Optometrist specializes in behavioural optometry, which is a specialty in the field of optometry that is concerned with how your eyes and visual system function and is interested in how your behaviour affects vision or how your vision influences your behaviour.
Who needs behavioural Optometrist are given below.
Children of all ages
Anyone who participates in athletics
Anyone who has a visually demanding job
Anyone who suffers from burning, itchy eyes, eye strain
Session 9 Innovations in Optometry:
Optometry is a healthcare profession that is autonomous, educated and regulated. Optometrists are the primary healthcare practitioners of the eye and visual system who provide comprehensive eye and vision care, which includes refraction and dispensing, detection or diagnosis and management of disease in the eye, and the rehabilitation of conditions of the visual system. For detection of the disease and for diagnosis Researchers are inventing new innovations in the field of Optometry.
New stem cell-based therapies
Innovations in Optometry
Session 10 Optometric Medication:
Pharmacists will have come across requests for medicines that have originated in a local opticians. Although they may be written on headed paper and look bona fide, how can you tell it is all right to supply the medicine? This article discusses the legal and professional issues that need to be considered when responding to requests for a prescription-only medicine.
Some optometrists also provide low vision care and vision therapy. Optometrists are licensed to prescribe medications to treat certain eye problems and diseases.
Eye drops that contain not more than 0.5 per cent chloramphenicol.
Eye ointments that contain not more than 1 per cent chloramphenicol.
Medicines containing cyclopentolate hydrochloride, fusidic acid or tropicamide.
Session 11 Iris Disorder :
Scar tissue can cause the iris to stick to the lens or the cornea, making the pupil irregular in shape and the iris sluggish in its reaction to light. Recurrent iris disorder can result in glaucoma, a serious disease which is characterized by increased pressure inside the eye and possible vision loss.
Session 12 Age-Related Macular Degeneration :
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a disease that blurs the sharp, central vision you need for “straight-ahead” activities such as reading, sewing, and driving. AMD affects the macula, the part of the eye that allows you to see fine detail. AMD causes no pain.
Session 13 Amblyopia:
Amblyopia, also known as lazy eye is a vision development disorder in which an eye fails to achieve normal visual acuity and even with prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses. Amblyopia begins during infancy and early childhood. In most cases, only one eye is affected.
Session 14 Astigmatism:
Astigmatism is a common vision condition that causes blurred vision. It occurs when the cornea (the clear front cover of the eye) is irregularly shaped or sometimes because of the curvature of the lens inside the eye.
Session 15 Cataract:
A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye that affects vision. Most cataracts are related to aging. Cataracts are very common in older people by age 80. A cataract can occur in either or both eyes.
Cataract surgery is a procedure to remove the lens of your eye and, in most cases, replace it with an artificial lens. Normally, the lens of your eye is clear. A cataract causes the lens to become cloudy, which eventually affects your vision.
Cataract surgery is performed by an ophthalmologist on an outpatient basis, which means you don't have to stay in the hospital after the surgery. Cataract surgery can be done traditionally using ultrasound energy to remove the cloudy lens or it can be removed with laser-assisted technology. Cataract surgery is very common and is generally a safe procedure.
Dry eye syndrome is caused by a lack of tear lubrication and moisture on the surface of the eye. Consequences of dry eyes range from subtle but constant eye irritation to significant inflammation and even scarring of the front surface of the eye. Dry eyes feel uncomfortable. If you have dry eyes, your eyes may sting or burn. You may experience dry eyes in certain situations, such as on an airplane, in an air-conditioned room, while riding a bike or after looking at a computer screen for a few hours. Symptoms of this disease is given below.
Session 18 Glaucoma:
Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that damage the optic nerve, the health of which is vital for good vision. In these cases, you may have sudden eye pain, headache, blurred vision, or the appearance of halos around lights Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness for people over the age of 60.
Session 19 Hyperopia:
Hyperopia, also known as farsightedness, is a common type of refractive error where distant objects may be seen more clearly than objects that are near. However, people experience hyperopia differently. Some people may not notice any problems with their vision, especially when they are young. For people with significant hyperopia, vision can be blurry for objects at any distance, near or far.
Session 20 Low vision :
Low vision is the term used to describe significant visual impairment that can't be corrected fully with glasses, contact lenses, medication or eye surgery. It includes: Loss of best-corrected visual acuity (BVCA) to worse than 20/70 in the better eye. Significant visual field loss.
Session 21 Myopia(Near sightedness) :
Nearsightedness, or myopia, as it is medically termed, is a vision condition in which people can see close objects clearly, but objects farther away appear blurred. People with myopia can have difficulty clearly seeing a movie or TV screen or the whiteboard in school.
Session 22 Traditional Eye Treatment:
Traditional ways are always the best way of treatment. According to Ayurveda the eyes are a hot organ that can be aggravated towards the end of summer when heat accumulates. So using traditional method and with the help of Ayurveda many doctors are diagnosing many patients.
Session 23 Veterinary Ophthalmologist :
Veterinary Eye Care is a referral ophthalmology practice that specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases in all animal species. Advances in veterinary medicine have allowed for specialization in many medical disciplines including ophthalmology. Some veterinary eye diseases are given below.
Session 24 Pediatric Ophthalmology and Optometry :
Pediatric ophthalmologists focus on the development of the visual system and the various diseases that disrupt visual development in children. Pediatric ophthalmologists also have expertise in managing the various ocular diseases that affect children. Pediatric ophthalmologists are qualified to perform complex eye surgery as well as to manage children's eye problems using glasses and medications. Pediatric ophthalmologists are specially trained to manage the following disorders:
Retinopathy of prematurity
As a result of speedy growth in world population, patients with eye diseases and patients with cataract, glaucoma is increasing every year thus stabilizing the ophthalmology market which experienced a downfall in the year 2008-2009. According to a survey, the total world population suffering blindness because of cataract and glaucoma are 48% and 60 million respectively. By the end of the year 2020, it is predicted that people suffering from glaucoma will be 80 million. According to the World Health Organization(WHO) estimated the population to be suffering from visual impairment worldwide is 253 million of which 36 million are blind and 217 million people have moderate to severe vision impairment. Approximately 81% of people aged 50 years and above are suffering from blindness or moderate to severe vision impairment.80% of all vision impairment cases can be prevented or cured.
