Track- 1: Ophthalmology
Ophthalmology is that the specialty involved with the medical and surgical care of the eye. Ophthalmologists are experts in medical treatment, surgery and microsurgery for eye conditions and diseases in addition to diagnosing systemic disease that manifest in eye signs or symptoms. Ophthalmology has many sub-specialties.
- Anterior segment surgery
- Vitreo-retinal surgery
- Optic Nerve Hypoplasia
- Saccadic System
- Ocular Therapeutics
Track- 2: Glaucoma
Glaucoma is a multifactorial optic neuropathy that influences more than 50 million populous and is the second driving reason for visual deficiency around the world. Glaucoma is brought on because of the harm of the optic nerve, which prompts to high intraocular weight and on the off chance that it is untreated then it will increments to vision misfortune with the start of imperceptibly blind sides at the edges of visual field took after by visual deficiency. Optic nerve harm is the primary driver for glaucoma alongside the few fundamental causes which are obscure. As indicated by world wellbeing association (WHO) glaucoma is the second real reason for visual deficiency over the globe. The clutters can be generally partitioned into two principle classifications, open-point glaucoma and shut edge glaucoma.
- Open angle Glaucoma
- Angle-closure Glaucoma
- Laser Trabeculoplasty
Track- 3: Retina and Retinal Detachment
The retina is a bit of CNS. Macula masterminded in the purpose of the intermingling of the retina contains a high thickness of photoreceptors which gives sharp and focal vision. The retinal issue may affect the essential tissue macula which may affect the vision which may a part of the time cause authentic visual shortcoming.

Track- 4: Cornea Disorders and Treatments
Eye is composed of very sensitive and fragile tissues and every part of an eye serves its own function to maintain its normal vision. The cornea is the transparent front part of the eye that covers the iris, pupil, and anterior chamber. The Cornea, with the anterior chamber and lens, refracts light, with the cornea accounting for approximately two-thirds of the eye’s total optical power. But factors such as corneal ulceration, epithelial keratitis & drug-induced epithelial keratitis, corneal regeneration, recurrent corneal erosion and miscellaneous corneal disorders can affect the cornea and ultimately lead to the external eye disease that could end up with permanent blindness. Hence investigation of corneal disease is carryout to mitigate the disease and methods like Contact lenses & vision correction is also use to cure the vision related problems and surgical procedure like corneal transplantation is used to transplant the cornea. The cornea and focal point of the eye are worked to concentrate light on the retina, which is the light-touchy tissue at the back of the eye. At the point when light strikes the cornea, it twists or refracts the light approaching onto the focal point. The focal point refocuses that light onto the retina, which begins the interpretation of light into vision. The retina changes over light into electrical driving forces that go through the optic nerve to the mind, which translates them as pictures.
Track- 5: Ocular Oncology
As ocular oncology is a highly specialized field of ophthalmology, there is active international collaboration between ocular oncologists. Ocular oncology is a multidisciplinary service which includes general oncologists, paediatric oncologists, specialist nurses, clinical scientists and many others. The most common malignancies include uveal and conjunctivitis melanoma, uveal metastasis, intraocular and conjunctiva lymphoma and conjunctiva carcinoma. As well as the management of confirmed malignant tumours, ocular oncologists receive a large number of referrals of patients with suspected malignant tumours. Diagnosis is based on bio microscopy, ultrasonography, angiography, optical coherence tomography, auto fluorescence imaging and biopsy. The most common benign tumours include naive, chordal haemangioma, Vasoproliferative tumours and retinal hemangioblastomas. Many of these lesions require treatment and/or long-term surveillance. Eyelid and orbital tumours are more likely to be managed within oculoplastic or orbital specialist services.

Track- 6: Macular Degeneration
Macular degeneration, otherwise called “age-related macular degeneration” (AMD or ARMD), is a medicinal condition which may bring about obscured or no vision in the focal point of the visual field. At an opportune time there are frequently no manifestations. After some time, a few people encounter a progressive compounding of vision that may influence one or the two eyes. While it doesn’t bring about total visual impairment, loss of focal vision can make it difficult to perceive faces, drive, read, or perform different exercises of day by day life. Macular degeneration commonly happens in more seasoned individuals. Hereditary factors and smoking likewise assume a part. It is because of harm to the macula of the retina. Conclusion is by an entire eye exam. The seriousness is separated into right on time, middle, and late sorts. The late sort is also isolated into “dry” and “wet” structures with the go shape making away 90% of cases. Avoidance incorporates working out, eating admirably, and not smoking. Cancer prevention agent vitamins and minerals don’t seem, by all accounts, to be valuable for counteractive action. There is no cure or treatment that profits vision officially lost. In the wet shape, hostile to VEGF drug infused into the eye or less regularly laser coagulation or photodynamic treatment may moderate intensifying. Supplements in the individuals who as of now have the illness may moderate movement.

Track- 17: Cataract and Refractive Surgery
A refractive error, for example, partial blindness (near sightedness), farsightedness (hyperopia), astigmatism or presbyopia, refractive surgery is a strategy for revising or enhancing vision. There are different surgical methods for modifying eye’s centering capacity by reshaping the cornea, or clear, round vault at the front of your eye. Different techniques include embedding a focal point inside the eye. The most generally performed kind of refractive surgery is LASIK (laser-aided situ keratomileusis), where a laser is utilized to reshape the cornea. For individuals who are myopic, certain refractive surgery systems will diminish the bend of a cornea that is excessively steep so that the eye’s centering power is reduced. Pictures that are engaged before the retina, because of a more drawn out eye or soak corneal bend, are driven nearer to or specifically onto the retina following surgery. Pictures that are locked in past the retina, due to a short eye or level cornea, will be pulled closer to or particularly onto the retina after surgery.

Keratoprosthesis is a surgical strategy where a sick cornea is supplanted with a simulated cornea. Customarily, Keratoprosthesis is prescribed after a man has had a disappointment of at least one benefactor corneal transplants. All the more as of late, a less obtrusive, non-entering counterfeit cornea has been produced which can be utilized as a part of more normal instances of corneal visual deficiency. While customary cornea transplant utilizes benefactor tissue for transplant, a counterfeit cornea is utilized as a part of the Keratoprosthesis methodology. The surgery is performed to re-establish vision in patients experiencing extremely harmed cornea because of intrinsic birth abandons, diseases, wounds and consumes. Keratoprosthesis are made of clear plastic with incredible tissue resistance and optical properties. They shift in configuration, measure and even the implantation systems may vary crosswise over various treatment focuses. The strategy is finished by ophthalmologists, frequently on an outpatient premise.
Track- 19: Eye: Developmental Biology
Eye development is initiated by the master control gene Pax-6, a home box gene with known homologues in humans, mice (small eye), and Drosophila (eyeless The Pax-6 sequence locus could be a transcription issue for the assorted genes and growth factors concerned in eye formation. Eye morphogenesis begins with the examination, or outgrowth, of the optic grooves or sulci. During the invagination of the optic cup, the ectoderm begins to thicken and form the lens placed, which eventually separates from the ectoderm to form the lens vesicle at the open end of the optic cup. Further differentiation and mechanical rearrangement of cells in and around the optic cup gives rise to the totally developed eye.
