Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine specializing in the anatomy, function and diseases of the eye.
You need consultation, diagnostic studies and possibly treatment if you have following problems:
-eye pain, double vision, eye drainage, poor vision, flashes etc
The major cause of vision deterioration and blindness are macular degeneration that accompanies aging, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and cataract. In children, retinopathy of prematurity is a growing cause of blindness.
It is an age related disorder which impedes sharp and fine vision, affecting people over 65 in a great percentage. The early sign of macular degeneration is some yellowish deposits under the retina called drusen.
One of the most common type of eye dysfunctions. Besides myopia (distorted distance vision) and hyperopia (distorted close vision) astigmatism (total vision distortion) and presbyopia (inability to focus on close images) are the most common refractive conditions.
Diabetic condition gradually damages the blood circulation of the eyes and for many eventually it can lead to blindness. Controlling diabetes and blood pressure is crucial in protecting the vision of diabetic patients.
It is a film that covers the lens of the eyes and is a condition that can develop at any age. Cataract removal is a relatively standard ophthalmic surgery procedure, but unfortunately remains beyond the reach of many. Excessive exposure to sun and age has been closely related to the evolvement of cataracts.
It endangers vision through the damage of the optic nerve and can cause vision loss to total blindness. Although it can develop throughout years without the patient realizing it, sharp pain and vision loss are common symptoms as well. Immediate medical intervention can save vision.
It is an imbalanced position of the eyes due to their faulty coordination. They are either cross in or turn out without the capacity to focus on the same image. If not treated, it can cause permanent vision damage on one eye.
Some common surgical procedures of eye that we commonly provide services for are:
- Cataract surgery
- Retina and vitreous surgeries
- Refractive surgery
- Pediatric eye surgery
- Corneal surgery
Known in the profession as IOL (intraocular lens implant), this procedure involves placing an artificial lens made of synthetic material inside the eye to enhance focusing power. Lens implanataion is favored in the treatment of cataracts
Also called corneal transplant surgery, this operation replaces the dome-shaped “window” which covers the eye and which plays a large part in your ability to focus.
Cornea & Refractive Surgery Centre specializes in treating keratoconus, the most common reason for corneal grafting.
Speaking of refractive surgery, LASIK is the most popular elective healthcare procedure in the world. Another fact: India’s surgeons and surgical facilities are world-class, and ophthalmology clinics there do advanced femtosecond LASIK – which corrects myopia and astigmatism – at incredible savings. On average you’ll pay US$600 for both eyes in India, as opposed to roughly US$3000-4000 in America.
