Ocular immunology is branch of medicine which deals with diagnosis the eye and treating the patients with inflammatory eye diseases and also deals with immunology impacts several eye diseases and disorders.
Vision science is the scientific study of vision. Vision science encloses all studies of vision, such as how human and non-human organisms’ process visual information, how conscious visual perception works in humans, how to exploit visual perception for effective communication, and how artificial systems can do the same tasks. Vision science overlaps with or encompasses disciplines such as ophthalmology and optometry, neuroscience, psychology, optics and computer vision, etc.
Cataract is nothing but a clouding of the lens in the eye that leads to decrease in the vision. It may affect both eyes or one eye.
External Eye Diseases
External Eye Diseases have several genetic disorders that lead to external eye disease. External eye disease is contagious and requires antibiotic treatment. Some of the list external eye disease are retinal disorders, tear disorders, cataract, refrarctive errors and corneal allergies.
Inflammatory Eye Diseases
The swelling in the ocular surface of the eye leads to disorders which have to treat immediately. Several inflammatory diseases occur due to the failure of autoimmune system in the eye. There are two types of inflammatory disease such as Uveitis and Scleritis.
Occuloplastics are specialist in the remodeling of the per orbital and facial tissues including the eyelids, eyebrows, forehead, cheeks, orbit and also deals with recontruction eye and its associated structure.
Diabetic retinopathy is the most common legal blindness disease which occurs between the ages of 20 to 65 years. Diabetic retinopathy is the most serious ocular complication which may affected in other ways.

Ocular oncology is the branch of medicine deals with the various cancerous tumors of the eye. some of the most common tumors of the eye is retinoblastoma.
2016 Journal Impact Factor is the ratio of the number of citations achieved in the year 2016 based on Google Search and Google Scholar Citations to the total number of articles published in the last two years i.e. in 2014 and 2015. Impact factor measures the quality of the Journal.
If ‘X’ is the total number of articles published in 2014 and 2015, and ‘Y’ is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2016 then, impact factor = Y/X.
