What is Ophthalmology?

Ophthalmology is a specialized branch of medicine that aims to prevent, diagnose, treat and manage conditions and diseases of the eyes and vision. It also prescribes eyeglasses and contact lenses for kids and adults. The key difference between Opthalmology and Optometry is that Opthalmologists can perform eye surgery. At Kuwait Hospital, we pride in having a team of both Ophthalmologists and Optometrists with extensive experience and successful cases.
