With advanced Phacoemulsification techniques using the state of the art equipment, the centre offers sutureless cataract surgery with Foldable Intraocular Lens Implantation including monofocal, multifocal aberration free IOLs and accommodative IOLs. YAG-Laser Capsulotomy for the treatment of after cataract.

Glaucoma detection using Tonometry (Noncontact, Applanation), Computerized Automated visual field testing, pachymetry, Gonioscopy and Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT).

Glaucoma treatment is done with laser (YAG laser iridotomy, selective laser trabeculoplasty), penetrating and non penetrating surgeries (Trabeculectomy with anti metabolites, NPDS and drainage valve surgeries for advanced and resistant glaucomas.)

Retina &Vitreous

Treatment of various retinopathies like Diabetic Retinopathy, Hypertensive Retinopathies, Central Serous Retinopathy, Venous Occlusions, Eales Disease and Retinopathy of prematurity using lasers with silt-lamp, Indirect Ophthalmoscopic laser delivery and Endolaser, Photodynamic Therapy(PDT) and injections of anti-VEGF agents(Avastin,Macugen,Lucentis)for neovascular membranes in Age related macular degeneration (ARMD). Advanced Vitreoretinal microsurgery with use of perflurocarbons, silicone oil and band buckle for complicated retinal detachment, complicated diabetic cases with hemorrhage, and retinal detachments for posterior segment trauma, epiretinal membranes, macular holes and submacular surgeries.

Cornea

Facilities/ Services

Advanced Diagnostic Facilities

A Scan Biometry & IOL Master

This device is a non-contact device for performing accurate measurements of the eye and intraocular lens power calculations for patients undergoing cataract surgery

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

Cirrus OCT (Zeiss) is a new, noninvasive, noncontact, imaging technology which can produce very high-resolution cross-sectional images of the retina. This technology can be used to help diagnose and thus treat a variety of retinal disorders including diabetic retinopathy, Age related macular degeneration (ARMD), Cystoid macular edema macular holes, Epiretinal membranes, central serous choriodopathy and optic disc pits. It also gives high resolution imaging of the optic nerve for early glaucoma detection. The new model of the machine we have also has an anterior segment module for imaging of cornea & anterior segment.

Fluroscein angiography & Fundus Photography

Fluroscein angiography is an important diagnostic tool to study the retinal vasculature. This involves an injection of fluroscein dye intravenously and then taking serial retinal photographs. This helps in diagnosing diseases of retina and choroid and also in evaluating the effect of treatment (medical or laser). The most common indications are diabetic retinopathy, ARMD and vascular occlusions of the retina.

YAG Laser

For treatment of narrow angle glaucomas, after cataract (PCO)

Green Laser

For various retinal conditions including diabetic retinopathy, vascular occlusions, myopic retinal degenerations, ROP among others

Perimeter

This is the most important and advanced equipment useful in the diagnosis of glaucoma and certain neurological disorders. This is fully loaded machine along with software's to assess the progression of glaucoma. We get to know the field of vision of the patient.

Auto Lensmeter

This is useful to calculate the present glass power more accurately and instantly.
