Nanotechnology has already been used for the purpose of the measurement as well as treatment of great number of ophthalmological diseases. The applications of Nanotechnology to Ophthalmology refer to the following: delivery of drugs, peptides and genes, biomedical imaging and diagnostics of distinct disorders of the eye, study of pathogenesis of the eye disease. Regenerative nanomedicine is considered to be a prospective approach for treating retinal degenerations and the second cranial nerve regeneration. Our manuscript included possible different application for ophthalmological drug using nanotechnology. Also, we described the importance of nanotechnology for imaging, diagnostic and monitoring of ocular diseases. Nanobiotechnology for glaucoma treatment, as well as nanoparticles for gene delivery therapy of retinal degenerative disease, is most attractive approach for the ophthalmological treatment.
