Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine and surgery, which deals with the diagnosis and treatment of eye disorders. Ophthalmologists are experts in the diseases, functions, and anatomy of the eye. They may provide routine care such as vision testing, as well as prescribe and fit eyeglasses or contact lenses. However, ophthalmologists are also surgeons. They repair traumatic injuries to the eye and perform cataract, glaucoma, and corneal surgery.
Serving in international medical missions, Dr. Dewan has donated his time and resources to teaching residents, medical staff, and surgeons, and to providing surgery for cataracts, eye disorders in children (such as strabismus), and eye plastic conditions.
