Typically, a Cataract patient will go through the following on the day of Consultation:
Biometry is an examination of the eye to determine the power of the Intraocular Lens required to replace your Cataract.
We have the most advanced Optical Biometry machine Tomey OA 2000 which gives very accurate results in a matter of few seconds.
Specular Microscopy is the examination to assess the health of your Cornea. The Cornea is the transparent dome-like structure in the front of the eye. This information is vital before we embark on Cataract surgery.
OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) Examination is used to assess the health of your Retina. If the Retina is not healthy, the outcome of Cataract surgery may be less than perfect. You may choose to have theOCT Examination done on the day of first consultation or at a later date. If you choose a later date, you will again require pupillary dilation and the mandatory waiting time.
At the time of Booking an Operation you are required to make a choice of:
Date(s) of Surgery: You could book for one or both eyes. Most patients are getting
both eyes operated on on Tuesday & Thursday of the same week.
By doing that, your benefit is that:
a) The efforts of putting eye drops after operation is reduced
b) The post operative check ups are clubbed together. This reduces the fee and repeated visits
c) Spectacles for both eyes are prescribed at the same time
A token advance payment of Rs. 5000 is collected.
A printed Pre Operative instruction sheet is provided and the instructions are explained.
This sheet contains the mobile number of the consultant / assistant for any clarifications.
An Antibiotic eye drop is usually started 1 to 3 days prior to the date of Operation.
During your consultation, we will explain the costs and benefits of each type of surgery & package. Each patient and eye is different and what applies to one person may not apply to another.
We will try to provide you with information to help you make an informed choice. While the decision is always yours, we are always available to assist you nad clarify any doubts you may have.
However, you must remember that the value of every rupee spent is realized by you in every moment of the rest of your life. Nothing gives you more value for your money.
