CATARACT SURGERY BY PHACOEMULSIFICATION
Our surgeons are well trained and have keen interest in both Anterior Segment surgery (front of the eye that deals with Cataract, LASIK & Glaucoma) & Posterior Segment Surgery (back of the eye that deals with Retina & Vitreous). We have an advanced LASER machine with different delivery modes which helps treat the patient in sitting & lying down position keeping the patient comfortable at all times. We have the 3D Maestro OCT machine (Topcon) which helps in diagnosis and treatment of Cornea, Glaucoma and Retinal diseases. The Topcon Specular Microscope which helps us assess the health of the Cornea prior to Cataract Surgery. The Non-Contact Tonometer (NCT, Topcon) ensures that we record every patients Intraocular Pressure (IOP) as the first screening test for Glaucoma. We do follow up all glaucoma suspects and confirmed patients by Applanation Tonometry.
We have trained Optometrists who provide Customized low vision aids to suit individual needs of elderly patients with low vision due to Age Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD) or other Retinal Diseases. Children with Lazy Eyes (Amblyopia) are helped with Amblyopia therapy sessions using the latest gadgets & devices. All problems are recognized and addressed at the same time. This avoids multiple consultations & examination.

The Cataract is removed and a foldable IOL (Intra ocular Lens) is implanted through a wound which is 2.8 mm or less in size & requires no stiches. Best performed when cataract is immature & soft. However, we have been regularly performing this surgery on difficult cases like mature / hard cataracts, small pupil, diabetics etc. with excellent results. Having facility for vitreo-retinal surgery & trained surgeons, we are better prepared to deal with difficult and complicated situations. Similarly, we are able to manage unprecedented complications in a safe and effective manner.
