Some eye diseases require the application of a drug treatment. This is the case of allergic, infectious and inflammatory processes. Other diseases such as cataract (total or partial lens opacification), myopia (the refractive state of the eye where the focal point is formed before the retina) or glaucoma (degenerative neuropathy of optic nerve fibers due to elevated intraocular pressure) may require surgery. Cabe highlight the eye examination to determine the use of glasses or contact lenses and corresponding graduation is the responsibility of optometrists. Optometry is the science devoted to the care of eye health and prevention, compensation and treatment of visual anomalies. By measuring the refractive state of the eyes, optometrists are able to detect and correct astigmatism, strabismus and other anomalies. If the optometrist detects any disease or pathology related to the visual system, the patient should be referred to an ophthalmologist.
