Type of Work Involved in Ophthalmology

An ophthalmologist works across a few different platforms to try to prevent, diagnose, and treat eye disorders to help their patients maintain the best vision. Some eye doctors are more involved in the research aspect of the field to try to find new technology that can aid in the fight against vision loss.

The current technology in the ophthalmology field allows doctors to get a closer look at the eye and any conditions that might exist. Using technology like lasers allows an eye doctor to destroy abnormal vessels and tissues that might decrease a patient's ability to see.
