Ophthalmology is the medicine speciality that deals with the study and treatment of diseases related to the eyes and vision.

Ophthalmologists are medical specialists who are dedicated to diagnosing and treating eye problems, including:

  • Refractive errors such as nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism.
  • Eye diseases, such as cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.
  • Eye infections, such as conjunctivitis and ocular herpes.
  • Eye injuries, such as retinal detachment, corneal abrasions, and eye hemorrhages.

We have the best doctors specialized in Ophthalmology

We provide a brief description of the most common eye disorders, diseases and errors that are treated in ophthalmology and for which you can consult our specialists at ConexionMED:


It is a refractive error that is characterized by the ability to see near objects clearly but difficulty focusing on distant objects.


It is a refractive error that is characterized by the ability to see distant objects clearly, but difficulty focusing on near objects.


It is a refractive error in which the cornea does not have an uniform curvature, which causes objects to appear distorted and blurry at any distance.


It is an opacity in the lens of the eye, which can make vision difficult and cause sensitivity to light. Cataracts are one of the leading causes of vision loss worldwide.


It is an eye disease that damages the optic nerve and can cause gradual and irreversible loss of vision. It is often associated with elevated intraocular pressure, but can also present with normal pressure.

Macular degeneration:

It is a degenerative disease of the retina that affects central vision, which can make it difficult to read, drive and identify faces.

Diabetic retinopathy:

This is an eye complication associated with diabetes that occurs when high blood sugar levels damage the blood vessels in the retina, which can lead to vision loss.


It is an inflammation of the conjunctiva, the membrane that covers the eye and the inner part of the eyelid. It can be caused by bacteria, viruses, allergies, or irritants.

Ocular herpes:

It is a viral infection that can affect the eye and cause redness, pain, sensitivity to light and blurred vision.

Retinal detachment:

It is a separation of the retina from the underlying tissue, which can cause loss of vision and in some cases may require emergency surgery.

Corneal abrasions:

These are scratches or injuries to the surface of the cornea that can cause pain, foreign body sensation, and blurred vision.

Eye bleeding:

Bleeding into the white of the eye (sclera), the inside of the eye (vitreous), or the retina, which can be caused by injury, high blood pressure problems, or blood clotting disorders.


Eye Surgeries

Ophthalmologists can perform different types of eye surgeries depending on the case and the specific need of the patient. Some of the more common eye surgeries performed by ophthalmologists include:


Cataract Surgery:

Cataract surgery is one of the most common surgical procedures performed by ophthalmologists. During surgery, the ophthalmologist makes a small incision in the eye and uses an ultrasonic probe to remove the cloudy lens. An artificial lens is then inserted into the eye to replace the crystalline lens.


Vision correction surgery:

Ophthalmologists can also perform surgeries to correct vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. The most common surgery is LASIK surgery, which uses a laser to reshape the cornea and improve vision. There are also other types of refractive surgery, such as PRK and LASEK, that may be suitable for some patients.


Glaucoma Surgery:

In some cases, ophthalmologists may recommend surgery to treat glaucoma. Glaucoma surgery may include placement of a drainage tube to help reduce intraocular pressure or performing a trabeculectomy, which involves creating a new outlet for aqueous humor to reduce intraocular pressure.


Strabismus Surgery:

Ophthalmologists can perform this surgery to correct eye alignment problems, such as strabismus. During surgery, the ophthalmologist adjusts the muscles that control eye movement to properly align the eyes.


If you have any of the previous conditions, do not hesitate to consult with ConexionMED.

It is important to note that each eye surgery has its own risks and benefits, and it is important to discuss all treatment options with the ophthalmologist to determine the best option for each individual case.

In Colombia, a large number of ophthalmological surgeries are performed, they are performed in specialized centers with cutting-edge equipment and technology.
