we provide a wide variety of aesthetic and therapeutical procedures and surgeries.
Cataract is clouding and thickening of the normally clear and transparent lens. This eventually impairs the ability of the lens to focus the light rays in the back of the eye. As a result, the vision becomes blurry and distorted. Patients with cataracts can also complain of glare problems and in worst cases, blindness.
Diabetic retinopathy is a complication of diabetes. Most commonly affecting patients who have poor sugar control over a long period of time. The high sugar level in the blood causes damage to the blood vessels in the retina, which is the tissue at the back of the eye that senses light rays and allow us to see.
Myopia or near sightedness, is when near vision is clear, but distance vision is blurry. This happens because, light rays become focused in front of the retina instead of precisely on it. As a result of this, one can feel the need to squint to see clearly, experience eye pain, general eye discomfort or headache.
Also known as Lazy Eye. Amblyopia happens during the first years of life when normal vision is still developing. When one eye does not work as well as the other, the brain trains itself to depend on the good eye, this makes the weaker eye even worse. If left untreated the weaker eye could be permanently impaired.
When the small oil glands in the eyelid get blocked a small swelling with redness appears. With time it becomes a firm lump that can stay for weeks. This lump is called a chalazion. A stye is a similar condition to a chalazion. However, a stye results from an infection, is painful and lasts for a shorter period.
This is a branch of Ophthalmology that focuses on children eyes’ health problems. Of the commonest problems that affect children are crossed eyes, lazy eyes, drooping of the upper eyelid and refractive errors. Other important and serious problems that can lead to blindness are congenital glaucoma, cataract and retinopathy of prematurity.
Astigmatism is a common but treatable eye condition. Unlike the normal round eyeball, the eyeball of someone with Astigmatism is oval or egg shaped. This imperfection in the eye curvature, results in the light rays reaching the back of the eye unevenly focused, which causes blurriness in near and distance views.
The cornea is the transparent outermost layer of the eye. It has multiple roles including, protection of the eyes from dirt and germs and also blocking a significant portion of UV light. It also plays a role in refracting the light rays reaching the eye in order to produce a focused image.
Hypermetropia or far sightedness, is when the distance vision is clear but near vision is blurry. This happens because, light rays become focused behind the retina instead of precisely on it. As a result of this, one can feel the need to squint to see clearly, experience eye pain, general eye discomfort or headache.
