Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine that deals with the anatomy, physiology, and diseases of the eye. An ophthalmologist is a specialist in medical and surgical eye problems. Since ophthalmologists perform operations on eyes, they are both surgical and medical specialists.
The Ophthalmology department in the best eye hospital in Ernakulam offers facilities for complete examination, diagnosis, and treatment of most of the ocular diseases in paediatric and adult patients.
