Ophthalmology

More than 80 percent of perception of the world around comes through vision. Therefore, the tendency for a gradual increase in the number of people with impaired vision is a bit frightening. Over the past 10 years, this figure has doubled. Children suffer the most. By the end of their studies, 40% of them have vision problems.

Ophthalmology deals with the study of visual impairment and eye diseases. According to ophthalmologists, 75% of vision problems can be avoided if a proper therapy is started on time. Therefore, if you notice that you have a lazy eye, you or your child have any other eye related symptoms, it’s high time you paid attention to this.

What diseases can be treated at Universum Clinic?

Our Clinic offers competent and skilled management and treatment of all diseases in this domain. Latter-day equipment allows for the most accurate and painless diagnosis, correction and prevention of eye diseases.

Our medical officers control:

  • Myopia and hyperopia
  • Glaucoma and cataract
  • Astigmatism (refractive error) and keratoconus (corneal thinning)
  • Angiopathy associated with vascular pathology and occurring on the background of diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and injuries
  • Retinal dystrophy and detachment
  • Keratitis (corneal inflammation), blepharitis and conjunctivitis.
  • Ocular hypertension
  • Spasm of accommodation, i.e a condition in which the ciliary muscle of the eye remains in a constant state of contraction
  • Various binocular vision disorders: amblyopia, anisometropia
  • Color blindness with non-hereditary loss of ability to discern colors

Most of the disorders stem from improper nutrition, continuous use of gadgets, watching TV or reading books. A present-day student or office worker experiences constant load on vision throughout the day. Reading documents and textbooks, keeping records, computer work: all these factors contribute to eye strain. At home, most people watch movies, news, children are busy doing their homework. Even in public transport or outside, many people are constantly chatting in socials using smartphones.

It is almost impossible to change the realities of the modern world. However, you can strengthen your eyesight and help your eyes resist the load better. Our specialists will conduct computer-aided treatment at the first signs of vision problems, select the right physical exercises and medicines that will help your eyes. If necessary, they will prescribe corrective lenses.

Ophthalmologists with Universum Clinic deal with various eye injuries: chemical burns from aerosols, adhesive and other substances; removal of foreign objects; elimination of effects of insect bites. Treat bruises and sores.

We will also help you with viral, bacterial and fungal infections caused by herpes, adenovirus, enterovirus, chlamydia, gonococcus, streptococcus. We will treat stye, i.e acute inflammation of an oil gland in the eyelid.

What symptoms should bring you to a doctor?

Eye diseases are rarely asymptomatic. But in some cases, the first signals may be mild. For example, a gradual decrement in visual acuity can be unnoticed until the impairment is so noticeable that distant objects become blurred. Therefore, it is so important to have your eyes checked on an annual basis. Ophthalmologists with our Clinic will promptly conduct diagnostics without you having to wait in lines and undergo additional tests. It only takes a few minutes, but it helps to reveal eye diseases in time.

Seek medical attention if you:

  • Feel discomfort when blinking: burning, dryness, pain
  • Notice excessive sclerotic redness
  • Often have to squint to see the details of things or read the sign on the opposite side of the street
  • Cannot see the number of the approaching bus, and if distant objects look like blurring spots
  • Experience dimout towards eventing
  • Have noticed peripheral vision loss, poorly discern things located on the sides
  • See strange or rainbow spots along with the surrounding image.
  • Have to increase the font on a computer screen and if you can hardly make out words in books
  • Suffer from sticky tears, swollen eyelids, crusty eyelashes.
  • See “lightning streaks”
  • Suffer reduced twilight and mesopic vision

Serious disorders are characterized by a whole complex of symptoms. For example, the development of retinopathy, when the eye vessels become tortuous, enlarged or constricted, causes impaired flow of blood to all eyeball structures. This, in turn, results in retinal fatigue, impaired recovery of visual pigments, active decrement in visual acuity, and cloudy vision. If nothing is done, there is a risk of total loss of vision. Therefore, if you are worried about some of the symptoms listed above, you need to take a medical examination.
