Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine that deals with the anatomy, physiology, and diseases of the eye.
Ophthalmologists are specialists who treat problems related to the eyes, such as infections, diseases, injuries, or disorders. They may adopt medicative approaches or prescribe surgical, chemical or freeze treatments based on the type of problem diagnosed.
If you require eye care and treatment, Aster Eye Clinic provides holistic treatment starting from first consultation to aftercare. Our clinics are located across Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, and Dubai to offer the best ophthalmology services to patients.
When to Consult with an Ophthalmologist?
Several indicative signs necessitate a visit to the nearest ophthalmologist in Dubai. Pay attention to the following symptoms:
Procedures and Treatments Offered across Dubai, Sharjah, and Abu Dhabi
Eye treatment is a precision task and requires trained professionals to administer the procedure. Aster Eye Clinic is equipped with modern equipment and expert ophthalmologists who ensure the safety and efficacy of a variety of treatments. These treatments include:
Cataracts happen when the lens of the eyes becomes cloudy and obstructs vision.
This is the procedure where doctors remove the cloudy lens from the eyeball and replace it with an intraocular lens to help improve the vision. You will not feel any severe pain during this procedure.
Post-cataract Laser Surgery
Post-cataract laser surgery is also called posterior capsulotomy or YAG treatment. This procedure may be required after cataract surgery if the vision is still cloudy and does not improve. It may indicate you have PCO.
Eye Muscle Revision
For patients with crossed eyes (strabismus), muscle repair can help relieve muscle strain by repairing the six muscles that control the movement of eyeballs. It also restores better function to the eyes and improves aesthetics.
Eyelid Defect Repair
If you have undergone other procedures (like tumour resection, trauma, or congenital anomalies) that have led to defects in your eyelid, this procedure can help correct such problems.
Eye Lesion Removal
This treatment is also called excisional biopsy. This is a procedure where doctors use a scalpel to remove lesions from the eyelid or other parts of the eye. This may later be used for biopsies.
This procedure is also called iridectomy. Doctors may remove your iris through this surgical procedure if you are diagnosed with glaucoma or iris melanoma.
Nasolacrimal Duct Probing
Nasolacrimal ducts are the tear ducts in your eyes. Any problems detected with the duct can be further examined or treated using nasolacrimal duct probing. Doctors insert a probe through the duct to clear obstructions if they find any.

Conditions like age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma are some common problems that can cause permanent damage to your eyes.
Unfortunately, there is no cure for glaucoma. However, you can visit an ophthalmologist in Dubai once you notice the symptoms and seek treatment to help preserve your eye health for as long as possible.
Several reasons can lead to eye pain but do not indicate the presence of any problem in the eyes per se. For example, allergies or issues with contact lenses can cause pain, which goes away when the trigger is removed.
During the first consultation, your ophthalmologist will ask about your medical history. They will also examine your eyes physically and use precision screening instruments to see inside and search for potential problems.
You will be checked for vision accuracy and correctness, intraocular pressure, and a general examination of the eye to determine the presence of disorders or age-related diseases. You may be given dilation eye drops that enable doctors to examine you better.
