Specialist or Checkup Eye Examination
A specialist eye examination is a type of medical test which takes place among patients who do not show evident problems which must be solved by means of surgical interventions, but rather among patients who are in need of a recurring checkup of their eyesight health, for the prescription of new lenses for their corrective glasses for the most common vision disorders such as myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, presbyopia.
Examination of the Fundus Oculi
The study of the internal structures of the eyeball during a specialist eye examination.
The examination of the fundus oculi is a diagnostic eye test of the fundus oculi used in order to study the internal structures of the eyeball: vitreous humor, retina (especially its central area, called macula) and optic nerve. (…)
A cataract is a progressive opacification of the crystalline lens (natural lens) which is located inside the eye. The crystal which was formerly flexible and transparent, becomes cloudy and stiff, and eyesight becomes imprecise and blurry. (…)
A glaucoma is a series of ophthalmic pathologies which share the presence of a chronic progressive damage of the optic nerve, with alterations in its aspect (which can be observed through an examination of the fundus oculi) and in the retinal nerve fiber layer. (…)
Refractive Eye Surgery – Laser
Refractive eye surgery is a type of eye surgery which takes place by means of a laser operation, used operating the cornea or the crystal in order to improve vision disorders (such as myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism) due to the defect in focusing images on the retina. The value of the defect must be measured by an ophthalmologist, who must obtain a series of data (preventive screening) before a contingent surgical intervention. (…)
Retina Diseases – Retinopathies
Retinopathy is a term which is used to refer to any disease or disorder of the retina. Some types of retina diseases are maculopathy (senile or juvenile macular degeneration), diabetic retinopathy, retinal vasculopathies, retinal detachment, etc.
