Top 10 Ophthalmologists in Dubai

/ Best Eye Doctors

Eye see you! Our sight is a blessing that most of us take for granted. Imagine waking up in pitch black – not being able to see yourself, unable to experience the trees dancing with the soft December breeze outside and forgetting how yellow your mother’s biryani looks. Sounds petrifying, doesn’t it? Well, it doesn’t have to be. If you regularly get your eyes examined, the eye specialist will be able to ensure that your eyes are in good health.

Hakeem’s Fact: An optometrist is an eye doctor that can examine, diagnose and treat your eyes. An ophthalmologist is a medical doctor who can perform medical and surgical eye procedures.

Here are some signs that you may need spectacles:

·         Frequent squinting

·         Eyestrain

·         Blurred vision

·         Frequent headaches

·         Constant irritation in eyes

·         Words being jumbled up whilst reading

·         Difficulty seeing at night

Hakeem’s Note: Remember these symptoms may also arise if you have an eye infection, allergy or some other vision-related issue. It is important to get the problem addressed at the earliest!
