Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine specializing in the anatomy, function and diseases of the eye. Medical doctors who specialize in diagnosing and treating eye problems, diseases and injuries are known as ophthalmologists.

Some of the many reasons why you may need to see an ophthalmologist include the following:
- Blood in the white of the eye
- Color blindness
- Diabetic retinopathy
- Diseases of the retina
- Drainage from the eyes
- Eyelid problems
- Eyestrain or vision changes
- Inflammation of the middle layer of the eye
- Macular degeneration
