All the aspects of clinical practice and research in ophthalmology and vision science are dealt with the help of clinical and experimental ophthalmology. It includes new clinical trials studies in ophthalmology, technical & surgical innovation, and current ophthalmic updates, analysis activities and continuing medical education in ophthalmology.
Track 2: Glaucoma
Your eye constantly makes aqueous humor. As new aqueous flows into your eye, the same amount of fluid should drain out. The fluid which drains out through an area is called as drainage angle. This process keeps pressure in the eye. But if the drainage angle is not working properly, fluid develops in the eye and pressure inside increases and damages the optic nerve. The optic nerve is made up of several million tiny nerve fibers. The optic nerve looks like an electric cable made up of many small wires. If these nerve fibers die, blind spots will develop in your vision. You will not observe the development of blind spots until most of your optic nerve fibers have died. If all the fibers have disappeared, then you will become blind.
- Primary open-angle glaucoma
- Angle-closure glaucoma
- Retinopathy at prematurity
- Abnormal vision development
- Genetic disorders
- Pediatric cataracts
Track 3: Neuro-Ophthalmology
Neuro-Ophthalmology is deals with neurology and ophthalmology. The sensory system ailment affects the pupillary reflexes, vision and eye developments are contemplated under the branch of neuro-ophthalmology. Visual Neuroscience focuses on Visual system of the human brain mainly the visual cortex of the brain. The aim is to understand the functioning of the visual neural network and how it influences visual perception and behaviour. It mainly focuses on how eyes and brain responds to light, how the perception of images happen in the brain and how the mind recreates the world like reality as it really is.
- Visual myasthenia gravis
- Optic neuritis
- Optic neuropathy
- Idiopathic intracranial hypertension
- Mind tumours
- Unexplained visual misfortune
- Cerebral pains
Track 4: Cataract
A cataract is a clouding of the lens that leads to decrease in vision. It develops slowly and can affects one or both the eyes. Symptoms for cataract may include faded colors, blurry or double vision, halos around light, trouble with bright lights and trouble seeing at night. This may result in trouble driving, reading or recognising faces. Due to poor vision caused by cataracts it may also results in risk of falling and depression. Cataracts cause half of all cases of blindness and visual impairment worldwide.
- Posterior polar cataracts
- Congenital cataracts
- Nuclear cataract
Track 5: Ophthalmic Vision Science
Vision Science is the scientific study of vision and it is a relatively recent term which is use to describe all studies that are related to how humans and animals process information visually. This type of science also had numerous sub-types such as ophthalmology, neuroscience, computer vision, perception psychology and more.
- Development of Refractive Error
- Visuomotor Sensitivity
- Visual Acuity
- Refraction in Vision Research
- Contour Interaction in Foveal Vision
Track 6: Vision Rehabilitation
Vision rehabilitation is a method of improving vision and it is the process of restoring functional ability and developing the quality of life, for the one who has lost visual function through illness or injury. Visual rehabilitation services are focused on low vision, which is a visual impairment that cannot be corrected by regular eyeglasses, contact lenses, medication, or surgery. Visual impairment is caused by some factors including brain damage, vision loss, and others.
- Neurological approach
- Physical approach
Track 7: Pediatric Ophthalmology
Pediatric ophthalmology is a sub-specialty of ophthalmology that deals with children's eye diseases. A pediatric ophthalmologist mainly works on visual system and on different eye disorders which decrease the vision in children. Various eye disorders in the children are being examined by the Pediatric ophthalmologists who are expertise in Ophthalmology. By using the glasses and medication Pediatric ophthalmologists manage the various eye disorders in children with utmost care.
- Retinopathy of Prematurity
- Eye Screening
- Amblyopia, Exotropia, Esotropia
- Superior Oblique Palsy
- Thyroid Eye Disease
- Dissociated Vertical Deviation (DVD)
Track 8: Ophthalmology Disorders
There are no early side effects for many eye sicknesses. They might be effortless and you may see no adjustment in your vision until the infection has turned out to be very worst. The best way to secure your vision is through customary expert eye examinations. Obviously between testing in the event that you see an adjustment in your vision or you think your eye might be harmed.
- Age-Related Macular Degeneration
- Swelling Eyes
- Waterfalls in Babies
- Visual impairment
- Eyelid Twitching
Track 9: Eye Lens and Refractive Errors
Refractive error means that the shape of the eye does not bend light correctly, resulting in a blurred image. Refractive disorders are commonly treated using corrective lenses such as eyeglasses or contact lenses surgery (such as LASIK) can also be used to correct some refractive disorders. A refractive error can be diagnosed by an eye care professional during a routine eye examination. Testing usually consists of asking the patient to read a vision chart while testing an assortment of lenses to maximize a patient’s vision. Special imaging or other testing is rarely necessary.
Track 10: Orbital Disorders
Orbital inflammation can affect any structures within the orbit. The inflammatory response can be nonspecific or granulomatous. The inflammation can involve as a part of an underlying medical disorder or can exist in isolation. This can be affected by any age-related persons. The process can occur again repeatedly or periodically. The eye socket and the eyelids work together to protect the eye and its muscles. Ophthalmoscopy is done as a part of an eye exam and routine physical exam. Various tumours may grow or spread to the eye socket and they must be removed in order to protect the vision.

- Orbital Cellulitis
- Lacrimal Sac Disorder
