A Web-Based Guide to the Diagnosis and Treatment of Chronic Ophthalmic Pathologies
Research paper
Description: 

Chronic ophthalmic pathologies are a prevalent cause of blindness and vision impairment (VI) in the world. There are an estimated 1.02 million people who are blind, 3.22 million people with vision impairment, and 8.2 million people living with correctable vision impairment. 1 Glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, cataract, cancers, and diabetic retinopathy are the prominent pathologies among the many that can cause vision impairment or vision loss. These pathologies disproportionally affect the elderly and can significantly affect quality and safety of daily life, mentally and physically. Those with vision impairment are more likely to suffer from trauma due to falls and driving accidents, develop other chronic conditions, and suffer from depression. 2,3,4 The purpose of this project is to generate a web application, targeted for Pre-health care students and professionals, for the diagnosis and treatment of those suffering from VI or vision loss due to ocular and systemic pathologies. The web application will provide epidemiology, etiology, pathogenesis, clinical manifestations, treatment, and prognosis for pathologies that cause blindness or vision impairment. The guide will be based on an extensive evidence-based literature review, cadaveric dissection, and pedagogical technical studies and practice.
