Surgical Ophthalmology

Translational Ophthalmology is a latest trend that bridges the gap by achieving breakthrough discoveries to patients faster than ever. Translational Research is a new initiative of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) which aims to translate basic research into more advanced form to yield the better results. The research trend discoveries maximize the opportunities to investigate the issues very minutely to decrease the risk of failure especially during surgical procedure like cataract and refractive surgery. Many fruitful facts have been discovered which indirectly helps in treating the respective conditions such as Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) proved that nutritional supplements (nutrition and ophthalmology) could minimize the risk of AMD. The American Health Assistance Foundation, dedicated to eradicating age-related degenerative diseases, estimates that up to 11 million people in the United States have some form of AMD - a number expected to double by 2050. Estimates of the global cost of visual impairment AMD causes are $343 billion, including $255 billion in direct health care costs, according to the foundation. Ophthalmology represents 18 percent of the average case volume in surgery centers, second behind GI/endoscopy (25 percent). The average surgery center performs 4,869 cases annually, which would average to around 876 ophthalmology cases annually, according to VMG Health's 2009 Intellimarker.
