Sessions and tracks
Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine dealing with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases of the eye and visual system. The eye, its surrounding structures and the visual system can be affected by a number of clinical conditions. Ophthalmology involves diagnosis and therapy of such conditions, along with microsurgery. Ophthalmologists are allowed to medically treat eye disease, implement laser therapy, and perform surgery when needed.
- Macular degeneration
- Diabetic retinopathy
- Age-related macular degeneration
Session 2: Pediatric Ophthalmology
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:
- Blocked tear ducts.
- Pediatric glaucoma
- Abnormal vision development
- Genetic disorders
- Orbital tumours
- Refractive errors
- Accommodative insufficiency
- Convergence insufficiency
Session 3: Neuro- Ophthalmology
Neuro-ophthalmology is an academically-oriented subspecialty that merges the fields of neurology and ophthalmology, often dealing with complex systemic diseases that have manifestations in the visual system. Neuro-ophthalmologists initially complete a residency in either neurology, neurosurgery, or ophthalmology then do a fellowship in the complementary field. The Neuro-ophthalmology conditions include:
- Giant Cell Arteritis
- Bell’s Palsy
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Optic Neuritis
- Diplopia (‘Double Vision’)
Session 4: Eye Lens
It is the second part of your eye, after the cornea, that helps to focus light and images on your retina. Because the lens is flexible and elastic, it can change its curved shape to focus on objects and people that are either nearby or at a distance. A contact lens, or simply contacts, is a thin lens placed directly on the surface of the eye. Contact lenses are considered medical devices and can be worn to correct vision, or for cosmetic or therapeutic reasons.
- Daily wear contacts
- Extended wear contacts
- Spherical contacts
- Multifocal / bifocal
- Monovision contacts
- Rigid gas permeable lenses
Session 5: Ophthalmic Technology
Ophthalmic Technology is a discipline that focuses on eye care. Topics such as eye examination, vision defects, ocular diseases, corrective surgery, optics etc. Ophthalmic Technology course trains students in areas such as examining patients, basic treatment of vision problems, work on eye testing and other ophthalmic equipment, monitoring patients, prescribing and dispensing spectacles and contact lenses and optometry practices.
- VisionCare's Implantable Miniature Telescope
- Optovue iVue Optical Coherence Tomography
- Vitamin E Infused Contact Lenses
Session 6: Ophthalmic Toxicology
Ø Consensus with regard to various important aspects of hydroxychloroquine ocular toxicity is limited, especially the definition of true hydroxychloroquine retinopathy, the most effective ophthalmological assessment, and frequency of screening.
Session 7: Optometry and vision Science
Optometry is a health care profession which involves examining the eyes and applicable visual systems for defects or abnormalities as well as the medical diagnosis and management of eye disease. Traditionally, the field of optometry began with the primary focus of correcting refractive error through the use of spectacles. Modern day optometry, however, has evolved through time so that the educational curriculum additionally includes intensive medical training in the diagnosis and management of ocular disease in countries where the profession is established and regulated.
Session 8: Latest Eye Research
Vision is a vitally important sense, but about 50 million people worldwide are blind and another 150 million are significantly vision-impaired. While trauma and infection can cause impairment, the majority of human eye diseases are genetic in nature. The are many laboratory and research centres perform researches into the biology and genetics of vision, mutations that lead to impairment and blindness, and the mechanisms of eye disease. Some latest eye equipment are given below.

Session 9: Removal of an Eye, Artificial Eyes
In general, it is better to avoid surgery if possible, with painted contact lenses, or shells (acrylic artificialeyes) worn over a blind eye often looking as good as a real eye. However, if a blind eye becomes painful in spite of the use of drops, or a contact lens or shell cannot be tolerated, or the patient does not have the manual dexterity required to remove the lens or shell each evening, then surgery should be considered as this addresses both the discomfort and allows an artificial eye (an ocular prosthesis) to be worn continuously with only a very occasional need for its removal for cleaning.
Session 10: Dry Eye
Our eyes need tears to stay healthy and comfortable. If your eyes do not produce enough tears, it is called dry eye. Dry eye is also when your eyes do not make the right type of tears or tear film.
- Burning sensation
- Itchy eyes
- Aching sensations
- Fatigued eyes
- Sore eyes
- Dryness sensation
- Red Eyes
- Photophobia (light sensitivity)
Session 11: Smartphones and Discomfort
Excessive exposure to blue light over many years, from sources such as sunlight, computer screens, and smartphones, can contribute to or even cause eye diseases like as macular degeneration. Excessive screen use is associated with serious eye diseases, including glaucoma 1and Macular Degeneration. Some smartphone related diseases are given below.
· Blue light
· Myopia in children
Session 12: Ocular Oncology
The Department of Ophthalmology's Ophthalmic Oncology physicians provides comprehensive care for adult and pediatric patients with eye malignancies. Just like in other parts of the body, eyes as well can create tumors. The tumors might be benevolent or harmful, that is, they may remain limited in the eye or spread outside. Eye tumours can undermine the visual perception and even have a genuine impact on well being and life. Visual oncology is the claim to fame managing eye tumours. Tumours can emerge in any piece of the eye. Some eye tumors can be very genuine, while others require no treatment. Ophthalmologists at Mass. Eye and Ear are exceptionally comfortable with tumours all through the eye. Most eye tumors are effortlessly noticeable changes. They can be distinguished and perceived at a beginning time. Treatment can be begun early and spare the eye and life of the patient.
· Uveal melanoma
· Orbital tumors and inflammation
· Retinoblastoma track
The outer layer of our tear film is an oil or lipid-based layer. Its main purpose is to seal the tear film which helps reduce evaporation of our natural tears. WATER (AQUEOUS) LAYER: The middle layer is mostly comprised of water. Its job is to lubricate the eye, wash away particles and prevent infection.
- Protects and lubricates the eyes
- Reduces the risk of eye infection
- Washes away foreign particles
- Keeps the surface of the eyes smooth and clear
Session 14: Retinal Disorders
The retina is a layer of tissue in the back of your eye that senses light and sends images to your brain. In the centre of this nerve tissue is the macula. It provides the sharp, central vision needed for reading, driving and seeing fine detail. Retinal disorders affect this vital tissue. Treatment is available for some retinal diseases. Depending on your condition, treatment goals may be to stop or slow the disease and preserve, improve or restore your vision. Untreated, some retinal diseases can cause severe vision loss or blindness. Many retinal diseases share some common signs and symptoms.
· Seeing floating specks or cobwebs
· Blurred or distorted (straight lines look wavy) vision
· Lost vision
Session 15: Imaging and Cataract
In the previous decade the appearance of ultrasonography registered tomography and all the more as of late attractive reverberation imaging has given symptomatic pictures of the eye circle and mind in a manner that had been a fantasy of numerous before the development of these systems. These newer modes of diagnosis have replaced some previous techniques, such as nuclear medicine imaging and to some degree, vascular studies and orthography.
Cataracts cloud our eye lenses, making it more difficult to see clearly. This may occur when proteins build up and form a cloudy layer on the lens. As you can probably imagine, this reduces the amount of light that can enter. You can almost think of it as condensation forming on the lens of a camera, making it more difficult to get a clear picture.
Session 16: Eye Allergies and Infections
Eye discharge may be clear and watery, like tears, or in the case of infections, it may be thick and opaque. There are many causes of eye discharge, ranging from infections to allergic reactions. Allergic reactions can cause itchy, watery eyes. Both allergies and infections cause pinkeye, or conjunctivitis.
· Symptoms of eye allergies include:
· Red, irritated eyes
· Tearing or runny eyes
· Soreness, burning, or pain
· Sensitivity to light
Session 17: Eye External Eye Diseases
The major signs of external eye disease are redness that does not improve with treatment and poor vision not explained by retina problems.
- Pink Eye. One common external eye condition is conjunctivitis, an infection marked by red, itchy eyes and tearing
- Cornea Abnormalities.
Session 18: Vision Rehabilitation
Vision rehabilitation (often called vision rehab) is a term for a medical rehabilitation to improve vision or low vision. In other words, it is the process of restoring functional ability and improving quality of life and independence in an individual who has lost visual function through illness or injury.
Session 19: Veterinary Vision
Veterinary Vision is an ophthalmic practice providing care for companion animals. The veterinarians are treating dogs, cats and other small animals including rabbits, chinchillas, birds and reptiles, Horses and other farm animals . Some veterinary eye diseases are given below.
· · Cataract
· Corneal Ulcer
· Corneal Dystrophy
· Entropion. Entropion
Session 20: Eye Surgery
Eye Surgery also known as ocular surgery. This is surgery performed on the eye or its adnexa, typically by an ophthalmologist. The eye is a very fragile organ, and requires extreme care before, during and after a surgical procedure to minimise or prevent further damage. An expert eye surgeon is responsible for selecting the appropriate surgical procedure for the patient, and for taking the necessary safety precautions.
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.
