Disease is the opposite of Health. Knowing about disease helps us to focus our efforts on regaining health.
If you are reading this website it is because you are interested in finding out more about an eye disease or condition. Are you worried because eye disease is affecting you or a loved one? Are you doing looking for information for a school project? Are you from another clinic, researching the competition on the Internet? We welcome all users to our website.
Unlike other sources, this material has been written by us, the ophthalmologists and optometrists at ICO. It is the result of many years of study and clinical experience so is based on both memory and intuition.
This well-managed knowledge base, based on our ability to analyse clinical data, common sense and prudence, allows doctors to tackle the disease with a higher chance of success.
The Treatments and Technology sections will help us by providing more information on the techniques and tools available to fight the disease. Huge advances in pharmacology and ophthalmic engineering have made ophthalmology one of the most complex, demanding and dynamic specialties in medicine in just a few short decades.
