Ophthalmology includes sub-specialities which deal either with certain diseases or diseases of certain parts of the eye. Some of them are,

  • Anterior segment surgery
  • Cataract — not usually considered a subspecialty per se, since most general ophthalmologists perform cataract surgery

  • Glaucoma
  • Medical retina, deals with treatment of retinal problems through non-surgical means.
  • Neuro-ophthalmology
  • Ocular oncology
