Term Definition
Ambulatory

Ambulatory care is a personal health care consultation, treatment or intervention using advanced medical technology or procedures delivered on an outpatient basis (i.e. where the patient's stay at the hospital or clinic, from the time of registration to discharge, occurs on a single calendar day).

Maxillofacial

Oral and maxillofacial surgery is surgery to treat many diseases, injuries and defects in the head, neck, face, jaws and the hard and soft tissues of the oral (mouth) and maxillofacial (jaws and face) region. It is an internationally recognised surgical specialty.

Ophthalmologist

Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine that deals with the anatomy, physiology and diseases of the eye. An ophthalmologist is a specialist in medical and surgical eye problems. Since ophthalmologists perform operations on eyes, they are both surgical and medical specialists.

Optic Nerve

The optic nerve is the part of the eye that carries visual information from the eye to the brain. It is located at the very back of the eye just to the nose side of center. It is also the part of the eye that gets injured when someone has glaucoma.

Strabismus

Strabismus also known as squint-eye and crossed-eye, is a condition in which the eyes are not properly aligned with each other.
