The growing sedentary lifestyle, increased cases of diabetes, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and environmental hazards are leading to a rise in ophthalmic diseases. According to a World Health Organization (WHO) report, approximately 1.3 billion people are living with some form of vision impairment. The ophthalmic healthcare sector is now advancing to deliver solutions for all the medical practitioners, enabling them to provide better eye care treatment for patients.
Technologies such as electronic imaging and biometric data acquisition are creating new pathways for better eye care. With 3D printing technology, ophthalmologists are able to develop patient-specific implants with least rate of error. With live retinal cell imaging, medical practitioners can look into live neurons, blood vessels, and epithelial cells within the retina. Live retinal cell imaging is helping ophthalmologists to diagnose and evaluate specific treatments for diseases such as atherosclerosis, AMD, and Alzheimer’s. Telemedicine, on the other hand, is facilitating real-time care delivery through live audio-visual interactions between patients and practitioners.
The introduction of these technologies in the field of ophthalmology makes treatment procedures easier and beneficial for both patients and the healthcare community. Powered by technology, ophthalmologists can impart education and conduct surgical planning, organ transplantation, diagnoses and treatment of various eye diseases to improve the patient’s quality of life.
