Ophthalmology deals with the anatomy, functions, pathology, and treatment of the eye.
A common concern is vision loss resulting from ocular hypertension, damage to the central part of the retina (called the macula), and glaucoma, a condition associated with damage to the optic nerve, which carries visual messages to the brain. Increased pressure in the fluid system of the eye is thought to gradually damage the optic nerve.
Our medicines provide treatment to reduce the risk of vision loss by inhibiting growth of abnormal blood vessels, by stemming bleeding and leakage, and by reducing the elevated intraocular pressure in patients with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension.
