Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine that deals with the anatomy, physiology, and diseases of the eye.

It involves both medical and surgical management of eye conditions, with the goal of preserving or restoring vision.

One of the most common eye conditions that ophthalmologists treat is cataracts, which is a clouding of the eye’s natural lens.

This condition can cause blurry vision, difficulty seeing at night, and sensitivity to glare.

Cataract surgery, in which the cloudy lens is replaced with an artificial one, is typically considered a safe and effective treatment option.
