Cornea Surgery

A corneal transplant also called Keratoplasty, is a surgical procedure used to replace a diseased or disfigured cornea with a healthy donor cornea. It is done to restore vision, improve the aesthetic look, and reduces pain caused due to scarred and infectious corneas. The donor cornea comes from a dying person after checking the quality of his cornea. Unlike other organ transplants, the corneal transplant does not require tissue matching and hence is more successful. A corneal transplant can be either Penetrating Keratoplasty, Endothelial Keratoplasty, or Lamellar Keratoplasty, depending on the layers of the cornea needing replacement.

Refractive Lens Surgery

Refractive Lens Exchange, also called Lens Replacement Surgery, is done to correct refractive error. It involves exchanging the natural lens of the eye with an intraocular lens to correct refractive error along with increasing the focus of the eye. It aims to reduce the dependence on spectacles and contact lens along with eliminating the scope of cataracts in the future. Depending on the patient’s ocular condition, either Monofocal or Multifocal or Accommodating IOLs can be used in this procedure.

Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery is a procedure to improve vision by replacing the cloudy cataractous lens with a clear Intra Ocular Lens. Factors like age, systemic complications, and traumatized conditions lead to lens opacity which is then removed via surgery. It is performed under topical anesthesia, and the patient can go home right after the surgery. Cataract surgery has successfully restored vision in a majority of people suffering from impaired vision due to cataracts.

Retinal Laser Surgery

Lasers have become a commonly used and very powerful tool in the treatment of retinal disease. Retinal lasers have been specially designed to be able to pass through non-retinal tissue (the lens and cornea) without damaging them. With the help of various lenses, laser beams can be focused on the retina for non-invasive surgical treatment.

Glaucoma Surgery

Glaucoma Surgery involves either laser treatment or making a cut in the eye to reduce the intraocular pressure. The type of surgery your doctor recommends will depend on the type and severity of your glaucoma and the general health of your eye.

Squint Surgery

A squint (or strabismus) occurs when one eye is not properly synchronised with the other eye. The affected eye might wander inwards, outwards but more rarely upwards or downwards. Squint surgery is a very common eye operation. It usually involves tightening or moving one or more of the outside eye muscles which move the eye.

Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid Surgery or Blepharoplasty is a type of surgery that repairs droopy eyelids and may involve removing excess skin, muscle and fat. As you age, your eyelids stretch, and the muscles supporting them weaken. As a result, excess fat may gather above and below your eyelids, causing sagging eyebrows, droopy upper lids and bags under your eyes.
