Sessions and tracks
Track on Retina & its Disorders:
Retina is a light sensitive membrane which is located at the back of the eyeball where the image of the object focussed at the lens is by chemical and nervous signals which reach the brain by optic nerve. Vision is the major role of Retina, covers about 65% of interior surface of eye. Rods or cones are the vital organs responsible for image formation when light strikes around these surfaces which further generated as electrical signal resulting a vision. Asymptomatic symptoms are in the earlier stages.
Track on Cornea Disorders and Treatments
For correct vision it is necessary to enter the light into cornea. When cornea is viewed from the front of the eye, it appears slightly wider than it is and tall. The reason is that the sclera ("white" part of the eye) slightly overlaps top and bottom of the anterior cornea. Horizontally the diameter of cornea typically measures about 12 millimetres (mm), and the vertical diameter is 11 mm, when viewed from the front. If viewed from behind, the appearance of the cornea is circular, with a uniform diameter of approximately 11.7 mm. This makes the cornea about two-thirds the size of a dime. the average thickness of the cornea is about 550 microns Centrally, or slightly more than half a millimetre.
Track on Glaucoma
Glaucoma is a multifactorial optic neuropathy which influences about than 50 million individuals & one of the second driving reason for visual deficiency around the world .The increased pressure which is called intraocular pressure, can damage the optic nerve, which transmits images to the brain. If the damage continues, glaucoma can lead to vision loss permanently. if not treated properly, glaucoma can cause total permanent blindness within a few years .The part of intra Ocular Pressure (IOP) has been all around recorded as a noteworthy modifiable danger variable for glaucoma. Also, almost glaucoma patients have a generally low IOP, while some solid people have a moderately high IOP. The glaucoma can be generally separated into two primary classes, open-angle glaucoma and closed angle glaucoma. Disabled visual blood stream regulation in open angle glaucoma as a danger of glaucoma has likewise been entrenched, particularly in the course of recent decades. Pathophysiology of glaucoma demonstrates mostly towards the expanded in intraocular weight which packs & harms the major optic nerve. Once the optic nerve is harmed, it unable to convey visual data to the mind and this outcome in complete loss of vision. Many times most people with glaucoma have no early symptoms or pain. We need to go for check-up eye doctor regularly so she/he can diagnose and can treat glaucoma before it leads to long-term visual loss.
Track on Clinical and surgical ophthalmology:
Clinical ophthalmology will provide the idea about normal visual diseases, such as ophthalmic surgical and laser methodology, clinical life structures and visual therapeutics. Many Patients with eye diseases get examined by Ophthalmologists and Optometrists .Surgical Ophthalmology is a sub-specialty of Ophthalmology, which includes major surgeries like cataract surgery and laser eye surgery. Oculoplastic surgery-incorporates the organization of the eyelids, tear channels and re-gainful surgery, refractive surgery - is a process for progressing the vision and vision science research. One of the major methods known as LASIK which is the most performed kind of refractive surgery is (laser-assisted with situ keratomileusis), where cornea is reshaped using a laser. These are the methods which are used to perform surgery commonly known as Optometry.
Track on Ocular Oncology
An ocular melanoma is the most common type of eye tumours. It develops from cells called melanocytes, which are found in the uvea (the middle layer of tissue around the eyeball that includes the choroid, the ciliary body and the iris). Ocular melanomas usually affect one eye only. There is no known cause of ocular melanoma, and it is not linked to skin melanoma. It is a very rare form of cancer affecting between only five and seven people in every million each year. It is more common in fair skinned, blue-eyed people. Ocular melanoma develops on an average age of 55 years.
Track on Pediatric Ophthalmology
Pediatric Ophthalmologist focus on the development of the visual system and the various diseases that disrupt visual development in children. Many ophthalmologists and other physicians refer pediatric patients to a pediatric ophthalmologist due to children's unique needs for the examination and management of ocular problems. Pediatric ophthalmologists are qualified to perform complex eye surgery as well as to manage children's eye problems using glasses and medications. Pediatric ophthalmologists typically also manage adults with eye movement disorders (such as nystagmus or strabismus) due to their familiarity with strabismus conditions.
Track on Neuro Ophthalmology
Neuro-ophthalmology is an academically-oriented subspecialty that merges the fields of neurology & ophthalmology, often dealing with the complex systemic diseases that have manifestations in the visual system and eye care related field. Cerebral Visual Impairment (CVI) incorporates every single visual brokenness created by harm to, or breaking down of, the retrochiasmatic visual pathways without harm to the foremost visual pathways or any significant visual ailment. Myasthenia gravis is brought about by a breakdown in the typical correspondence in the middle of nerves and muscles which prompts two fold vision, hanging eyelids and different muscles shortcoming which affecting the both i.e. neuromuscular action furthermore vision efferent visual system disorders (e.g. anisocoria, diplopia, ophthalmoplegia, ptosis, nystagmus, and blepharospasm, seizures of the eye or eye muscles, and hemi facial spasm).Neuro Ophthalmic issues are quite a concern for doctors; for if cannot be treated on time, it could result in Optic Nerve atrophy.
Track on Cataract and refractive surgery
A refractive error or example, partial blindness (near sightedness), farsightedness (hyperopia), astigmatism or presbyopia, refractive surgery is a strategy for revising or enhancing vision. There are different surgical methods for modifying eye's centering capacity by reshaping the cornea, or clear, round vault at the front of your eye. Different techniques include embedding a focal point inside the eye. The most generally performed kind of refractive surgery is LASIK (laser-aided situ keratomileusis), where a laser is utilized to reshape the cornea. Individuals who are myopic there are specific refractive surgery systems will diminish the bend of a cornea that is excessively steep so that the eye's centering power is reduced. Pictures that are engaged before the retina, because of a more drawn out eye or soak corneal bend, are driven nearer to or specifically onto the retina following surgery. Pictures that are locked in past the retina, due to a short eye or level cornea, will be pulled closer to or particularly onto the retina after surgery.
Track on Ohthalmic pharmacology
Ohthalmic pharmacology is the study and utilization of medications to both analyse and treat ailments of the eye. There are different microbial maladies of the eye like fungal contaminations of the cornea, which are uncommon yet may happen after agrarian wounds or in hot and moist atmospheres, orbital mycosis is even rarer, and for the most part happens after spread from the paranasal sinuses. Expanding age, debility, or immunosuppression improves probability and seriousness of illness.
Track on Ocular imaging
Imaging of the eye is critical to improving the diagnosis, assessment of severity and progression, and evaluation of management of eye disease. Advances have been rapid, with improvements in hardware (such as light sources and imaging chips), optics (such as adaptive aberration compensation) and software (such as image tracking). Imaging of the eye allows changes in its anatomy and physiology to be observed and assessed. Although great advances have been made in imaging chip technology (which has enhanced slit-lamp and fundus photography), imaging of the eye can also be achieved using reconstructed images.
Track on Macular Degeneration
AMD is a disorder which causes the gradual loss of sight due to blurring or loss of central vision. This is often as a result of a deterioration of the macula, a yellow pigmented structure at the back of the eye that is responsible for our detailed colour vision. The severity of the disease depends on each person and on how quickly it is detected. AMD is a chronic disease – it cannot be cured and in many patients sight cannot be restored after it is lost. However certain forms of the disease can be treated. Early detection is important to potentially stop the spread of the disease and to protect your sight.
Research by the Macular Pigment Research Group in Waterford Institute of Technology estimates that seven per cent of Irish people aged 50 years or older are living with AMD. Therefore, AMD is the leading cause of sight loss in this age group, with the number of people affected due to increase in the coming years due to our aging population.
Track on Keratoprosthesis
It is a procedure that involves full-thickness removal of the cornea and replacement by an artificial cornea. Made of clear plastic with incredible tissue resistance and optical properties shifts in configuration, measure and even the implantation systems may vary crosswise over various treatment focuses. The strategy is finished by ophthalmologists, frequently on an outpatient premise. It also includes a clear plastic PMMA i.e. polymethylmethacrylate optic and back plate sandwiched around a corneal graft and secured with a titanium locking ring. When compared to complete thickness resection of the patient's cornea is then completed using curved corneal scissors. Keratoprosthesis is then secured to host tissue using interrupted or running sutures.
Track on Genetic-ophthalmic-disorders
Genetic-ophthalmic-disorders are that outcome from an adjustment in the ordinary DNA arrangement. Most hereditary issue are caused by multifactorial means, including a blend of hereditary and natural elements. A huge number of human maladies are currently known to be caused by single quality issue and chromosomal anomalies, a considerable lot of which include eye or visual adnexa sequelae. The human eye is a mind boggling and exceptional sense organ in taking into consideration a significant number of the clinical highlights to be described with an unaided uncovered eye or straightforward ophthalmic examination instrument. Along these lines the phenotypes of numerous ophthalmic hereditary conditions have been all around described, and the ophthalmic exam may offer critical data in recognizing the basic hereditary issue. Displayed in the accompanying segments are accounted for eye highlights, legacy designs, known related quality or chromosomal variation from the norm, and MIM reference number for chose hereditary infections
Track on Uveitis
It is an inflammation that leads to inflammatory diseases of eye especially at the middle layer comprising iris, ciliary body and choroid. There is no further any treatment where it could be treated. Finally leads to loss of vision.
Track on Conjunctivitis
Termed as Pink Eye which is an inflammation of the conjunctiva. Appearance of the eyes seems and changed to be pink to reddish. Symptoms include mostly pain in eye, burning sensation with itchiness. Treatment and symptoms are done based on the Diagnosis. Cause of inflammation or infections is viral followed by bacterial infections.
Track on Visual Neuroscience
Visual Neuroscience is a sub branch of a bigger conglomerate subject called Neuroscience. This branch contemplates various topics such as organization of visual pathways; subcortical processing; processing in the primary visual cortex, effects of drugs on visual neural pathways, computational modelling of neural pathways of vision, longitudinal relationships between eye movements, attention and cognition. Insight into this process allows clinical psychologists to fetch a greater understanding for what may be causing visual disorders.
Track on Ocular Microbiology and Immunology
It is considered to be a defence system for eye and also regulates healing processes following injuries. The interior of the eye lacks lymph vessels but is highly vascularized, and many immune cells reside in the uvea, which are mostly macrophages, dendritic cells, and mast cells. These major cells fight off intraocular infections, and intraocular inflammation can manifest as uveitis (including iritis) or retinitis. The cornea one of the eye is immunologically a very special tissue. Its constant exposure to the exterior world means that it is vulnerable to a wide range of microorganisms while its moist mucosal surface makes the cornea particularly susceptible to attack. Has a large part of the eye’s refractive power, meaning it has to maintain remarkable transparency, but must also serve as a barrier to keep pathogens from reaching the rest of the eye, similar to function of the dermis and epidermis in keeping underlying tissues protected in the skin. Immune reactions within the cornea come from surrounding vascularized tissues as well as innate immune responsive cells that reside within the cornea.
Track on Intraocular Lenses (IOLs)
Intraocular Lenses (IOLs) is a lens which implanted in the eye and used to treat Cataracts or astigmatism. Which are installed in the midst of Cataract surgery, after the cloudy crystalline lens (likewise called a Cataract) has been removed? IOL mainly replaces the primary crystalline lens, and in the main while gives the light focusing work at first grasped by the crystalline lens. It has been the major topics discussed in all the ophthalmology associations meeting. There are a couple of lens named so Monovision with Intraocular Lens that are put over the present trademark lens, and is used as a piece of refractive surgery to change the eye's optical power as a treatment for astigmatism or nearsightedness .IOLs were usually made up of an unbendable material called (PMMA), despite the way this has, all things considered, been superseded by the usage of versatile materials.
The field of Ophthalmology: Ocular treatment & care is growing rapidly and its development is making tremendous impacts in medical and health sciences and pharmaceuticals. The importance and significance can be gauged by the fact that it has made huge advancements over the course of time and is continuing to influence various sectors. Ophthalmology Summit 2018 conference will concentrate on latest and exciting innovations in areas of eye surgeries, diagnostics and recent technologies towards eye care.
