Ophthalmic Pathology is a sub-specialty of surgical pathology which deals with the study of neoplastic and non-neoplastic eye diseases. There are several kinds of diseases that affect the eyes namely night blindness, conjunctivitis, cataract, glaucoma etc. Eye disorders include Myopia, Hypermetropia, Presbyopia, and Astigmatism. An Ophthalmologist is a doctor who is specialized in eye and vision care. An Optometrist has a degree in optometry and prescribes contact lenses. Both can diagnose and treat certain eye conditions and prescribe medications. One main difference between them is that an Ophthalmologist is specialized to perform an eye surgery whereas an optometrist is not. Laser in-situ keratomileusis is a trending eye surgery that corrects the corneal region of the eye; performed on individuals with nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Following a proper diet with extra nutrition for the eyes and performing certain eye exercises will improve the eye vision.
