What is Ophthalmology?

There are several types of eye doctors. Ophthalmology, which is carried out by an Ophthalmologist, involves diagnosing and treating a wide range of eye disorders. This requires detailed knowledge about ophthalmic optics, the structure of the eye, the eyes’ function, and the many eye diseases and associated neurological systems involved. Your Ophthalmologist will also have all the necessary microsurgery skills. 

An Optician handles eye testing, spectacles, lenses, and contact lenses, also tasked with identifying a range of common eye diseases. They don’t diagnose or treat patients. An Optometrist, on the other hand, is a Doctor of Optometry with a DO degree, someone who conducts eye examinations and writes prescriptions for glasses and contact lenses, sometimes identifying and prescribing treatments for eye issues and diseases. Ophthalmologists are the most skilled of all. They are fully-trained doctors who specialise in eye disorders and diseases, with all the skills and experience needed to carry out an Optometrist’s job plus the ability to perform eye surgery. If you have eye problems you will see the most appropriate person for your condition. 

When should you see an Ophthalmologist?

You should see an Ophthalmologist when you’re due a comprehensive eye examination. For under 40s that means every 2-3 years, for over 40s it’s every 1-2 years, and for those over 65 it’s annually. Other reasons include a family history of eye disease, you need glasses or lenses, are considering laser eye surgery, or your vision has recently changed. 

It is always wise to plan routine eye checks, and especially important as you grow older and your vision deteriorates. A regular visit to an Ophthalmologist is a vital step in maintaining your overall health since an Ophthalmologist is a fully qualified medical doctor who specialises in every kind of eye and vision problem. They can support you with professional expertise in everything from routine eye examinations to diagnosing complicated ocular diseases, from treatment to advice about disease prevention. With more than four years’ specialist eye and vision-related training on top of their already-extensive general medical training, they’re perfectly placed to identify abnormalities and vision problems, deal with eye trauma, recommend surgery to the eye and eyelids, and treat a large collection of diseases including common conditions like glaucoma and cataracts. 

How to find and choose the best Ophthalmologist in Dubai?

Doctify’s intelligent filters let you identify the best specialist. Honest online reviews from genuine patients provide the perfect way to find highly-rated Ophthalmologists in Dubai and make a sensible decision. Use the filters to sort through your preferred requirements, whether it’s a fast appointment, somewhere close to home, or a Dubai Ophthalmologist who has been rated highly by their patients. 

How much does a private Ophthalmologist appointment cost in Dubai?

The cost of a private Ophthalmologist appointment in Dubai varies according to which specialist you see, the purpose of your appointment, and the length of the appointment. You’ll usually find a price list on the clinic’s website, but to be 100% sure it makes sense to call the clinic to confirm the cost before you make an appointment.  

What happens at an Ophthalmologist appointment?

An appointment with your Ophthalmologist is likely to kick off with a detailed personal medical history, looking into the symptoms you are experiencing and the current condition of your eyes, the quality of your vision, and any treatment you’re having. Then they’ll do a series of tests on your eyes to check their physical condition and your sight, before making recommendations around treatment, surgery, or lifestyle changes.  

What conditions do Ophthalmologists treat?

Your Ophthalmologist will treat common eye problems like Conjunctivitis and Blepharitis, where the eyes and lids become red and sore. They treat Cataracts and diagnose Glaucoma, where the optic nerve is damaged. They handle Age-Related Macular Degeneration or AMD, and Astigmatism, where your eyes blur. Dry Eye Syndrome is common as is Presbyopia, which results in focus issues.
