CATARACT SERVICES

We are equipped with an AMO signature, a high-end phacoemulsification system that minimises tissue damage during cataract surgery. Micro incision cataract surgery (MICS) is also available for cases in which the wound size is required to be even smaller. Intraocular surgery is done with a Zeiss surgical microscope and the finest titanium surgical instruments. All types of intraocular lenses (IOL), including foldable IOLs, toric IOLs and multifocal (IOL), are routinely inserted with excellent results. Availability of day care surgery (operation without admission) makes it more convenient for the patient.

GLAUCOMA SERVICES

The glaucoma clinic provides comprehensive care for glaucoma patients. Every suspected case of glaucoma undergoes diagnostic tests including pachymetry, applanation tonometry, visual field analysis, gonioscopy, and optic disc evaluation. Patients are managed medically and surgically with regular follow-ups. Paediatric ophthalmology, oculoplasty, refractive correction surgeries (LASIK), retina and neuro-ophthalmology services are also available.
