Glaucoma is a neurodegenerative and multifactorial disease in which the optic nerve connecting the eye to the brain becomes damaged. This eye condition is caused by a growing intraocular pressure in the eye when fluid is unable to drain properly. It can be detected during functional and morphometric tests, such as Visual Field Analysis, OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) and Tonometry.
Children’s Eye Care
Children’s Eye care is extremely challenging for the ophthalmologist. The presence of undetected visual pathologies can affect the correct development of a vision of quality, causing long-term damage. We recommend early and regular screenings, between the ages of 2 and 4, together with an in-depth orthoptic analysis.
Advanced Visual Analysis
Since several clinic conditions can alter visual and spatial analysis, an advanced tecnhology system is required for a precise diagnosis. Specific Learning Disorder deserves their own chapter and the ophthalmologist, along with other experts, plays a role of great importance.
During his daily work, the ophthalmologist is assisted by the orthoptist who not only handles instrumental tests but also assesses ocular motility and stereopsis, as well as their rehabilitation. By any means the orthoptist is an authorized health worker.
The cornea has a specific curvature that allows light to enter the eye in order to give information tot he central part of the retina. It can be affected by numerous diseases, such as degenerative diseases, infections, inflammations, abrasions and inherited distrophies.
The retina is a nervous tissue that receives visual stimulus and is made of several layers of well-organized nerve cells. Various types of diagnosis, like Optical Coherence Tomography and Autofluorescent Retinography, can be useful to the ophthalmologist for an accurate and in-depth analysis of the diseases.
It’s a current and useful diagnostic method for eye-related health problems. Thanks to its most innovative applications, it is possible to use the echographic sign for the measurement of the eyeball, an essential step in the measurement of the crystalline lens for cataract surgery.

Low vision and visual rehabilitation
Low vision is the term used to describe a significant visual impairment, a condition that can be congenital or acquired as a result of eye disabling diseases, such as maculopathy, retinopathy and developmental glaucoma. Vision is damaged in an irreversible way. In many cases, after a series of accurate evaluations, it is possible to undergo specific rehabilitation programs.
