The retina is a layer of tissue present in the interior of your eye. Retina  disorders are mainly due to lack of light-delicate cells and other nerve cells which transform the impulse into visual information. Retina sends this visual data to the cerebrum through your optic nerve and process the information into an image and empowering you to see. Different age group generations, races and ethnicities are effected from Retinal degenerative disorders, for instance, Age-related macular degeneration and myopic macular degeneration.

Clinical Ophthalmology indicates the duties of practitioner in an eye clinic and it also covers the broad spectrum of research from beside to bench side and plays a crucial in screening, diagnosis and therapeutics to treat eye illness. There are various common eye problems that needs to treated in a same day and hence that can be achieved through community ophthalmology so that you can be treated near where you live or work rather than hospital.

Pediatric ophthalmology is a sub-branch of ophthalmology associated with eye ailments, visual functions, and vision care in kids. The pediatric ophthalmologist gets further training to provide supervision to young patients. Neurologic improvement of vision happens up until around age 12 years. Misalignment of the eyes (strabismus), uncorrected refractive mistake (nearsightedness, hyperopia, and astigmatism), and asymmetry of refractive errors between the two eyes can contrarily influence this advancement. If these conditions not treated on time than it will affect the vision permanently. Pediatric ophthalmologists are eligible to perform ocular surgery along with the management of children’s eye diseases with glasses and pharmacological approach.

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.

The cornea is the transparent exterior part of the eye that covers the iris, pupil, and foremost chamber. The cornea, with the front chamber and lens, refracts light, with the cornea representing around 66% of the eye's aggregate optical force. Corneal diseases, for example, corneal ulceration, epithelial keratitis and drug-induced epithelial keratitis, corneal degeneration, repetitive corneal disintegration and different corneal issue can influence the cornea and at last prompt the external eye disease that could wind up with perpetual visual impairment.
