Cataract (Modern and Latest Cataract Treatment)
Our eyes consist of lens which helps us to see. As we grow old the natural crystalline lens becomes harder and loses its natural flexibility to focus on things at varying distances and creates vision problems. Gradually, the lens turns cloudy and your natural lens becomes like a window that is frosted or yellowed. Cataract is a cloudy area in the lens inside the eye, which is normally clear. Cataracts are most often caused by our body’s natural aging process, although they can also be the result of heredity or accidents. Cataract can develop in one or both eyes.

What are the symptoms of cataract ?
1. Cataract leads to blurred vision while normal vision ensures crisp, clear well-defined images.
2. Cataract leads to reduced light sensitivity resulting in glare and undefined images.
3. Cataract may lead to double vision in one eye, resulting in difficulty while driving and doing other day to day activities.
Refractive Surgery Department
Refractive surgery is a surgical procedure used to correct the eye’s refractive defects that lead to conditions such as Short-sightedness (Myopia), Long-sightedness (Hyperopia), Presbyopia or Astigmatism. In this type of surgery, the ophthalmologist uses a microsurgical instrument and a laser to reshape the cornea in the front of the eye. This improves the way the eye focuses light rays onto the retina at the back of the eye.

Glaucoma is a disease that typically affects older people, but it can occur at any age. It occurs when the pressure inside the eye rises high enough to damage the optic nerve. The eye has about 1 million tiny nerve fibers which run from the back of the eye to the brain. These nerve fibers allow us to see. As a disease, glaucoma causes the destruction of these fibers. Althought, it was once thought that the loss of these fibers was due strictly to high pressure in the eye, the medical field now knows that even patients with normal eye pressure can have glaucoma and potentially lose the nerve fibers that connect the brain and the eye.

Normally, our eyes are straight while looking at any object. However, in some children, while looking straight, the eyes do not see in the same direction. While one eye looks straight ahead, the other eye is turned either inwards or outwards. This is called a squint.
A pterygium can lead to severe scarring on your cornea, but this is rare. Scarring on the cornea needs to be treated because it can cause vision loss. For minor cases, treatment usually involves eye drops or ointment to treat inflammation. In the most serious cases, treatment usually involves a corneal transplant.
Corneal opacity is a disorder of the cornea. The cornea is the transparent structure on the front of the eyeball. Corneal opacity occurs when the cornea becomes scarred. This stops light from passing through the cornea to the retina and may cause the cornea to appear white or clouded over.
Vitreo Retinal Surgery
Retina is the light sensitive film in the back of the eye. The image is perceived here and transmitted to the brain by the optic nerve. The vitreous is the clear gel that fills the back of the eye. Diseases of retina can affect any age. Premature infants can be affected by a disease called - ROP (Retinopathy of pre-maturity). Heredity and age related degenerations can affect the retina - especially the central most sensitive part of the retina called 'macula'. The retina can detach from the backportion of the eye - a condition called 'Retinal Detachment'. The Vitreous gel can become opaque due to blood - a condition called 'Vitreous hemorrhage'. This condition can occur in diabetics following injury and in other conditions.
