Dear Aspirant,

An ophthalmologist is a medical or osteopathic doctor who specializes in eye and vision care. Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine that deals with the anatomy, physiology and diseases of the eye.

An ophthalmologist diagnoses and treats all eye diseases, performs eye surgery and prescribes and fits eyeglasses and contact lenses to correct vision problems. Many ophthalmologists are also involved in scientific research on the causes and cures for eye diseases and vision disorders.

The eligibility required to do the Ophthalmology course is a graduation in medicine (MBBS). The aspirants who have completed the medical school are qualified to apply for the programme. The courses offered in the Ophthalmology are MD, MS and DOMS.

Best wishes
