A brief intro to Eye Surgeons

Who is an eye surgeon?

Eye surgeons (ماہرامراض چشم) are specialist doctors who cater to the ailments of the eyes. They are able to treat a wide range of conditions and are qualified to perform surgeries.

When should you see an Eye surgeon?

A visit to the eye surgeon is due when you experience any problems with your eyesight, such as the blurring of images, seeing double, not recognizing colors properly and even complete loss of vision, as is the case with wet macular degeneration.

Moreover, an injury to the eye is a cause for concern and should be addressed by an eye doctor. Similarly, some diseases also negatively impact eyes, like hypertension and diabetes. These patients then also need guidance from an eye specialist for treatment.

People in need of an eye surgery should visit an ophthalmologist. Some eye conditions that require surgical intervention include:

  • Cataract (موتیا)
  • Strabismus
  • Cancer
  • Glaucoma
  • Damage due to trauma to the eye

Some people also want to have their vision fixed and thus eye surgeons use techniques like LASIK and Femto LASIK to operate on the lens so that sighted problems can be resolved.

Older people are more vulnerable to vision problems like AMD, glaucoma (گلوکوما ), cataracts. Progressive diseases like these can result in permanent loss of vision, and timely surgical intervention can greatly improve a patient's vision.

Many people confuse ophthalmologists, optometrists and opticians. Only ophthalmologists or eye surgeons are qualified doctors that treat problems ailing the eye, through medicine and surgery.

Optometrists are healthcare individuals trained in vision problems like refractive errors. They can also perform eye exams and treat only certain diseases.

Opticians are technicians who aid people with vision correction problems like fitting of the eyeglasses, or lenses etc. They cannot diagnose or treat eye problems. It is important to ascertain the type of problem you are experiencing so you schedule a visit with the appropriate expert.
