*Ophthalmology* is the branch of medicine that deals with the anatomy, physiology and diseases of the eye . Ophthalmology literally means “the science of eyes”. An *ophthalmologist* is a specialist in medical and surgical eye problems. Since ophthalmologists perform operations on eyes, they are both surgical and medical specialists.
