Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine which deals with the diseases of the eye and their treatment.
Since ophthalmologists perform operations on eyes, they are generally categorized as surgeons.
Ophthalmologists are medical doctors who have completed medical school and embark on a training schedule that generally lasts four years after medical school in most countries.
Many ophthalmologists also undergo additional specialized training in one of the many subspecialities.
