No night duties and life risk emergencies



-End branch and Cool branch.

  • No night duties and life risk emergencies.

-Gud for both individual n group practice/ institutional practice.

-Subspecialities like cornea/retina/glaucoma/oculoplasty are there which r equal to superspeciality

-Almost all surgeries can be performed in sitting posture(surgeon need not stand/bend/stretch).

-Exception: retina surgeons - while examining a patient has to do lot of exercise with neck, back n fingers.


-Micro surgical branch requires long learning curve. It takes atleast 2to 3yrs to get gud skills.

-To establish own practice investment is high.

◆Final take : ophthalmology is a wonderful branch.
