Eye Clinic

we provide a wide variety of aesthetic and therapeutical procedures and surgeries.

Retinal Conditions

The retina is a layer of light sensing cells that is located at the back of the eye, it is connected to the brain by the optic nerve. When we look at an object the light rays are sensed by the retina and converted to signals that reaches the brain forming an image.

Cataract

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

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

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.

Refractive Surgeries

These are surgical procedures that correct refractive errors including nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism, eliminating the need of contact lenses or glasses.

VIEW SERVICE

Amblyopia

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.

VIEW SERVICE

Chalazion

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.

VIEW SERVICE

Glaucoma

The optic nerve links the eye with the brain. It is crucial for intact vision. Glaucoma is the term used for conditions affecting the optic nerve, usually due to increased pressure inside the eye. It is important to detect glaucoma early, because it can lead to irreversible vision loss.

VIEW SERVICE

Paediatric Ophthalmology

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.

VIEW SERVICE

Squint

Normally both eyes look at the same direction. When each eye looks at a different direction the eyes look crossed, this is known as squint. It can present at birth, or any time later in life.

VIEW SERVICE

Astigmatism

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.

VIEW SERVICE

Corneal Conditions

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.

VIEW SERVICE

Hypermetropia

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.

VIEW SERVICE

Presbyopia

The lens is a flexible elastic structure, its shape can be changed by the small muscles that are attached to it. When looking at something close like in reading, the muscles contract increasing the curvature of the lens adjusting the focusing power.

VIEW SERVICE

Vision Therapy

Vision therapy also called vision training is a modern treatment modality that targets children and adults. It aims at improving visual skills such as eye alignment, eye tracking, focusing and eye movement.
