Opthalmic or Eye Surgeries and Definitions

Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine concerned with the eye and its diseases.

Blepharoplasty - repair of the upper or lower lid to remove excessive skin that interferes with vision. It may be cosmetic or therapeutic.

Cataract - a gradual clouding of the lens of the eye which impairs visions.

Cataract Extraction - the cloudy lens is removed by phacoemulsion(the use of ultrasonic sound waves or vibrations). A lens implant is then inserted to replace the removed lens.

Ectropion Repair - repair of the outward turning of the eyelid.

Entropion Repair - repair of the inward turning of the eyelid, usually the lower lid.

Glaucoma - a disease which is characterized by an increase in pressure in the eye causing defects in the field of vision, pain and possible blindness

Iridectomy - removal of a portion of the iris in the treatment of glaucoma.

Ptosis Repair - the repair of a drooping upper eyelid.

Stabismus Repair - eye muscle surgery to repair either an inward or outward turning of the eye. It may affect one or both eyes.

Trabeculectomy - microsurgery of the eye in which small incisions are made to allow fluid to drain. It is a treatment for glaucoma.
