Every year, nearly 5 lakh children become blind. When compared to adults, children experience a wide variety of eye problems. Children's ophthalmologists work on improving children's vision and treating diseases that interfere with their vision. Conjunctivitis, Strabismus, Amblyopia, Blocked tear ducts, Ptosis, Retinopathy of prematurity, Nystagmus, Visual inattention, Pediatric cataracts, Pediatric glaucoma, Genetic disorders, Orbital tumours, Congenital malformations are among the conditions that pediatric ophthalmologists treat. The Geriatric ophthalmology area focuses on the general and ocular physiological changes that occur with age, clinical approaches in geriatric patients, common geriatric ocular diseases, spectacle dispensing in elderly patients, and pharmacological aspects of ageing. About 82 percent of people over 50 years of age are blind. The blindness of the elderly poses a serious threat to their well being. When left untreated, visual disturbances cause falls, depression, social isolation, and dependency. Examples of ophthalmological problems:


  • Childhood malignancies
