Session 1 – Ophthalmology
Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine dealing with the study of anatomy, physiology, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of the eye and visual system.
Eye health services are becoming more and more important in the UK and all over the world. In increasing population, there are more and more incidences of age-related diseases of the eye, such as age-related macular degeneration. These eye diseases can be treated if caught early and can be managed effectively with existing treatments and medicines.
Session 2 – Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology
The clinical and experimental ophthalmology deals with all aspects of clinical practice and research in ophthalmology and vision science. It includes new clinical trials studies in ophthalmology, technical & surgical innovation, and current ophthalmic updates, analysis activities and continuing medical education in ophthalmology.
Session 3 – Cataract
A Cataract is a turbid or obscure location in the focal point of the eye arranged at the back of iris inside the eye. The foggy and dull picture will create because of the thick focal point of the eye through which the light beams went and broke through the shady focal point. Refractive laser-helped waterfall medical procedure costs more than ordinary choices. The laser itself can cost the specialist around $300,000 to $500,000, and extra expenses are related to utilizing and keeping up the device.
Session 4 – Glaucoma
Glaucoma is a multifactorial optic neuropathy that impacts in excess of 50 million people and is the second driving purpose behind visual insufficiency around the globe. It can be isolated into two essential classes, open-point glaucoma and shut edge glaucoma. Pathophysiology of glaucoma shows towards the extended in intraocular weight which packs and damages the optic nerve. The Society saves 10 to 15% of all self-ruling glaucoma inquire about in Canada.
Session 5 – Retina and Retinal Diseases
It contains a substantial number of light-sensitive cells and other nerve cells that get and create visual information. The central zone of the retina contains a high thickness of shading sensitive photoreceptor cells called cones which are accountable for shading vision. Sicknesses like Diabetic retinopathy and Retinal tumors can in like manner be responsible for the enduring vision mishap. David Geffen School of Medicine and Mayo Medical School are the fundamental association’s accomplices with ophthalmology.
Session 6 – Lens Disorders and Refractive Surgery
A cataract is an obscuring of the focal point in the eye inciting a decrease in vision. They may impact one or the two eyes. This may realize burden driving, scrutinizing, or seeing countenances. Poor vision may in like manner achieve an extended threat of falling and debilitation. The cascades are most regularly in view of developing, yet may moreover happen on account of damage, radiation introduction, be accessible from origination, or happen to take after eye medical procedure for various issues. Risk components consolidate diabetes, smoking tobacco, postponed prologue to sunlight, and alcohol.
Session 7 – Ocular Immunology
Ocular immunology is a specialised branch of medicine dedicated to diagnosis and treating patients with inflammatory eye diseases. These diseases will slightly scale reduce vision or result in severe vision loss.
Session 8 – Cornea and External Eye Diseases
The cornea is the outer layer covering the front of the eye which acts as a barrier to protect the eye from foreign objects, helps with vision by focusing light, and filters ultraviolet rays that enter the eye. The cornea can usually heal itself after scratches or some minor injuries but sometimes the cornea and other external eye structures require medical treatment for more serious injuries like allergies, inflammation, infections, corneal dystrophies, and a wide range of other conditions.
Session 9 – Ophthalmology Diagnosis
The Advanced tests and diagnostic procedures to evaluate and treat eye diseases are:
Below are the methods of diagnosis performed in an eye examination
• Visual acuity
• Intraocular pressure
• Slit lamp examination
• Retina examination
• Optical coherence tomography
• Fluorescein angiography
Session 10 – Eye Care Professionals (ECP)
An eye care professional is an individual who provides a service related to the eyes or vision. It is any healthcare operative involved in eye care that can be post-secondary training to practitioners with a doctoral level of education.
Eye care professionals is an individual that provides a service associated with the eyes or vision. It is any healthcare operative involved in eye care that can be post-secondary training to practitioners with a doctoral level of education.
An ophthalmologist is a doctor of medicine who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of eye disorders, injuries in and around the eye and acts as both physician and surgeon.
Ophthalmic Medical Practitioner (OMPs)
Medical Practitioners are ophthalmologists who start NHS sight tests under the General Ophthalmic Services contract and examine eyes, test sight, diagnose abnormalities and bring down appropriate corrective lenses. OMPs are registered with and controlled by the General Medical Council. Currently in the UK around 400 registered ophthalmic medical practitioners.
The rules and responsibilities of OMPs in conducting NHS sight tests and primary detection of eye disease. OMP has the additional role of taking a history, conducting an appropriate ophthalmic examination, and referring patients for further investigation and treatment.
Optometrists are trained to examine eyes, give advice on visual problems and prescribe fit glasses or contact lenses and refer patients for further treatment, when necessary. Some optometrists have an enhanced role in caring for patients with stable chronic eye conditions.
An Optometrists training route is:
• Entry into a university optometry department with 3 good A levels
• 3 years at university leading to a degree in optometry
• 1 year of pre-registration experience
• Completion of Professional Qualifying Examination
• Registration with the General Optical Council
An ocularist is a professional whose speciality in the area of fabrication and fitting of ocular prostheses for those that has lost an eye or eyes because of trauma or unwellness. Ocularist provides long-term care through periodic examinations, complete instructions on the care and maintenance of their prosthesis.
Ophthalmic Medical Personnel
Ophthalmic medical personnel knew as ophthalmic medical technicians or assistant who work with an ophthalmologist to provide patient care by performing eye-related clinical tasks such as:
• Taking patient medical histories
• Instructing patients about medications, tests, and procedures
• Performing vision and diagnostic tests
• Assisting with patient procedures
• Coordinating patient scheduling
• Performing office management duties
• Supervising and training other allied ophthalmic personnel
Opticians specialize in the correct and fabrication of ophthalmic lenses, spectacles, contact lenses, low vision aids, and ocular medical specialty. They may also refer as “optical dispenser”, “dispensing optician”, and ophthalmic dispenser”. The prescription for the corrective lenses should be equipped by, ophthalmologists and in some countries an orthoptist.
Pediatrics is the branch of medicine that involves the medical care of infants, children, and adolescents. A medical doctor who specializes in this area called pediatrician or pediatrician. Pediatricians manage the health of the child, including physical, behavior, and mental health issues. They trained to diagnose and treat childhood illnesses, from minor health problems to serious diseases.
Vision therapy (VT) is used to improve vision services such as eye coordination, contrast sensitivity, perception and many binocular vision anomalies like accommodative disorders, vergence disorders, eye movement disorders, and the training of stereopsis. The series of procedures in VT carried out in both home and office settings, usually under professional supervision called Optometrist.
A vision therapist either an orthoptist or optometrist works with patients that require vision therapy, such as low vision patients. Mostly, the therapy is performed in children who develop problems with their vision because they are using their eyes up close. This type of therapy usually used in patients who need visual correction except for whom the corrective lenses are insufficient to reverse the condition.
Internal medicine or general medicine is the medical specialty that deals with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of adult diseases. Physicians who specialized in internal medicine known as internists, or physicians. Internists are expert in the management of patients who have undifferentiated or multi-system disease processes. Internists look after hospitalized and ambulatory patients and will play a serious role in teaching and research.
Orthoptists are physicians that diagnose and treat defects of vision and abnormalities of eye movement. Orthoptists are usually part of a hospital care team who look after people with eye problems especially those related to binocular vision, amblyopia, strabismus and glaucoma.
There are some eye problems that could be diagnosed and detected by well-trained ophthalmic nurses. Ophthalmic nurses may significantly contribute to ophthalmology and visual sciences. The ophthalmic nurses may assist in decrease the rate of canceled surgical operations at the date of operation that had been due to a lack of attention to health problems in pre-operative assessments. They are also critical elements in health-care systems because they can help to bring up to date ophthalmic knowledge and contribute to general physicians. They assist patients who suffer from blindness or loss of vision, to find national organizations that provide services and education. These nurses play a significant role in the process of teaching people, providing proper diagnoses, administration, and management of ocular problems.
Session 11 – Neuro-Ophthalmology
Neuro-ophthalmology is an academically-oriented subspecialty that combined the fields of neurology and ophthalmology, often dealing with complex systemic diseases that have manifestations in the visual system. It focuses on diseases of the nervous system that affect vision, control of eye movements, or pupillary reflexes.
Common pathology referred to a neuro-ophthalmologist consists of afferent visual system disorders (like optic neuritis, optic neuropathy, papilledema, brain tumors or strokes) and efferent visual system disorders (like anisocoria, diplopia, ophthalmoplegia, ptosis, nystagmus, blepharospasm, seizures of the eye, and hemifacial spasm).
Session 12 – Ocular Oncology
Ocular oncology implicates the study and treatment of tumors that occur in or around the eye. These tumors might cause vision loss or loss of the eye itself. Some tumors are probably fatal, whereas others could also be benign yet severely disfiguring. The researchers identified retinoblastoma (Rb) gene which is the first known tumor-suppressor gene and formed an important cornerstone in the molecular basis of cancer. The researchers also developed the proton beam irradiation, the gold standard of treatment for uveal melanoma. Research studies going on for cancer condition genes and biomarkers, innovative surgical techniques for ocular malignacies, and developing new therapeutic methods for malignant neoplasm and different ocular cancers.
Session 13 – Ophthalmic Pathology
Ophthalmic pathology or ocular pathology is a highly specialized branch of the medical laboratory and combined study of surgical pathology and ophthalmology which deals with the diagnosis and characterization of neoplastic and non-neoplastic diseases of the eyes. Ophthalmic pathologists generally work closely with ophthalmologists.
Session 14 – Pediatric Ophthalmology and adult strabismus
The Pediatric Ophthalmology and adult strabismus are concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of eye disorders in children and strabismus in adults.
Eye problems in children’s range from routine examinations to the diagnosis and management of such problems as amblyopia, nasolacrimal duct obstruction, cataracts, glaucoma, retinopathy of prematurity and strabismus is increasing day by day. Adult strabismus may take the form of a long-standing squint of large angle with few or no symptoms or a recently acquired misalignment of any amount but with disabling effects.
Session 15 – Community Ophthalmology
In 1978, Community ophthalmology was elect as a new discipline in the field of medical science for supporting eye health and vision prevention through various programs using methodologies of public health, community medication, and medicine. Community Ophthalmology involved in community-based activities like comprehensive primary eye care services, camps, school vision screening, low vision rehabilitation, and epidemiological research and surveys, training and capacity building, community awareness.
Session 16 – Ophthalmic Drug Delivery
The major challenge for pharmacologist and formulation scientist is ocular drug delivery. New ophthalmic drug delivery systems developed to address the need for long-term drug delivery from a single procedure and to potentially reduce adverse events associated with some of the more potent therapies.
Various strategies for ocular drug delivery include the formulation techniques for improving the availability of drugs; viscosity enhancers and mucoadhesives aid drug retention and penetration enhancers promote drug transport into the eye. The drug-loaded contact lenses and ocular inserts also used that allows drugs to be better placed where they are needed for more direct delivery. Nanospheres is that the technology that gives potential for drug delivery to the eye within the least volume, but along with this technology, a number of factors required into consideration including retrievability, tolerability of each the drug and also the delivery device, ability of the device to remain in position once injected and durability in the eye beyond drug delivery.
Session 17 – Ocular Biomechanics
Ocular biomechanics is to study the eye as a biomechanical structure. Ocular biomechanics is important for preventing and treating vision loss. The eye is a remarkably complex structure with biomechanics involved in many of its functions. Eyes to be able to track moving objects, for example, require a delicate balance of the forces exerted by several muscles. Forces also are liable for deforming the lens and permit focusing. A slight imbalance between the forces and tissue properties may be enough to alter preclude vision. These effects might occur quickly or over long periods, even years.
Session 18 – Practise of Ophthalmology
The practice of ophthalmology contains all aspects of visual function in health and disease, like refraction, orthoptics, binocular vision and strabismus. Medical and surgical treatment of a disease involving the visual system and awareness of ocular manifestations of the systemic disease is also an integral part of the practice of ophthalmology.
Session 19 – Ophthalmologists Carrier
As the world’s population is increasing every day and the demand for ophthalmologists will be continued and the job opportunities will always present. The people that have completed their residency training will prolong to pursue fellowship training in Ophthalmology sub-specialties. Aspirants who would like to become licensed professionals, graduates need to hold a medical degree and complete a residency programme.

Session 20 – Ocular Hypertension
An increase in the pressure within the eye above the range considered normal without any detectable variations in vision or damage to the structures of the eye.
Session 21 – Ophthalmology Case Reports
Ophthalmology case reports are a very crucial area of research. This explains the entire report of a particular individual’s eye anatomy, physiology, and affected eye diseases. As the eye is one of the vital organs in the human body, the need, and importance of studying it stand pivotal. If we start from the size and shape of the eye, moving onto its working and eventually diagnosing and finally treating them comes under Ophthalmic and this entire study contains a report which is called ophthalmology case report.
Ophthalmology cases report on various diseases are:
• Case reports on Cataract
• Case Reports On Glaucoma
• Case Reports On Astigmatism
• Case Reports On Macular Dystrophy
• Case Reports On Corneal Ulcer
• Case Reports On Cytomegalovirus (CMV) Retinitis
Session 22 – Controversies and Debates in Ophthalmology
According to WHO, it is estimated that around 315 million people worldwide suffer from visual impairment (45 million Blind and 269 million due to Low Vision due to eye diseases and refractive errors). The recently developed therapies like antivascular endothelial growth factor inhibitors for the treatment of age-related macular degeneration, and prostaglandin analogues for the treatment of glaucoma are beneficial for some patients. For sight-threatening disease patients, no effective pharmacological therapy is available.
The current review summarises recent attempts to elucidate molecular mechanisms of ocular diseases which include diabetic retinal disease, age-related macular degeneration and inherited blindness using proteomic methodologies. A hypothesis can be generated from global protein expression analysis of disease tissue, which can then be addressed with cellular and in vivo functional studies.
In the past 20 years, causes of blindness have changed both in proportion and actual numbers but cataract has still remained the major cause of blindness globally and more so in Asia. Globally, major causes of cataract 17.6 million (45.8%), 8 million (18%) refractive errors, 4.5 million glaucoma (11%), 3.2 million age-related macular degeneration (8.1%), 1.9 million corneal scar (4.5%), 1.8 million diabetic retinopathy (4.8%), 1.3 million childhood (3%), 1.3 million trachoma (3.6%), 0.3 million onchocerciasis (0.7%) and 4.8 million due to other causes (12%).
It is estimated that the total number of ophthalmologists all across the globe is more than 12000. As per the country, the population of ophthalmologists is different and in Netherland, it is 670, United Kingdom- 630, Germany- 2500 and Italy- 1500.
