We offer complete eye care with effective treatment of red eyes, sore eyes, watery eyes, dry eyes, headache, blurred vision, pterygium, lacrimal sac diseases etc.
Normally, the lens of the eye is clear and allows light rays to pass through easily. When a cataract develops, the lens becomes cloudy and opaque, and no longer transmits light. This results in gradual decrease in vision. Medication or change of glasses will not improve vision. Removal of the clouded lens by surgery and replacement by intra ocular lens (IOL) is the only treatment. IOL is a tiny transparent lens inserted in the eye during surgery. It stays permanently in eye & does not cause irritation. We are skilled in performing Phacoemulsification which is the latest & proven to be the best surgical technique for treating cataract. It takes 15-20 minutes to perform and is painless. It does not require stay at hospital. It needs small incision & no sutures. You can resume office work within 1 weeks time.
Glaucoma is a group of disorders in which the pressure of fluid inside the eye gradually increases causing damage to optic nerve and permanent loss of vision. Most glaucomas remain asymptomatic until advanced stage. Only periodical check up by ophthalmologist will help in detection and treatment. The side vision goes down in stages and testing this (visual field ) is an essential part of management of this condition. We have the Humphreys field analyser which helps us document the visual field loss at each visit. Our consultants are specially trained in diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma, both with medicines and when required, with surgery (Trabeculectomy).
Retina is the innermost layer of the eye. It can be affected by genetic diseases, injury to eye, multisystem diseases like diabetes, hypertension; developmental diseases, inflammation and infection. The damage to this layer may or may not produce symptoms. Hence, if there is a risk factor, an eye examination is mandatory. Our consultants have expertise in diagnosing & treating all kinds of retinal diseases with medicine, surgery, laser and injections.
This condition (retinopathy of prematurity) occurs in premature children with low birth weight. It is treatable when detected early but can cause blindness if not diagnosed /treated. We perform screening for diagnosing this condition before it presents with a major problem.
Retinal damage due to diabetes and hypertension or retinal hole formation due to injury and high myopia are the main diseases which require laser treatment. Green laser is available at our hospital which has been proven to be highly effective for treatment of these conditions.
After few years following cataract surgery, vision may appear blurred again. This may be due to formation of a membrane behind the lens. This can be treated using YAG laser (capsulotomy), which is also available with us. These procedures are painless and are performed on an outpatient basis .
Uvea is the middle layer of the eye. Infection or inflammation in this layer can cause blurring of vision and poses a long standing problem to the patient. Our consultants are specially trained in treatment of uveal diseases through medicines, injections, laser treatment and surgery.
In normal eye, light rays from an object focus on the retina. Refractive error is said to exist when light rays get focused in front or behind the retina causing blurred vision. Failure to correct this leads to decreased vision, headache, learning disabilities in children. Correction using spectacles or contact lenses are the safest and best technique available for treatment of this condition.
