We have 532nm green laser to treat Diabetic Retinopathy and Eale’s disease. In cases of ARMD, TTT treatment is given using the 810nm red laser. Latest treatment for Intra Vitreal Injection like Anti VEGF (Avastin, Lucentes, Macugen) is offered to the patients.
Our hospital is 1st to use OS3 with Novatrix Technology system for complicated vitreous surgery. We installed the first KOWA digital fundus camera for fluoresceine Angiography in India years ago.
We are proud to acquire state of art electrophysiological unit to do ERG and VEP studies both as diagnostic and research tool. A well equipped “Low vision clinic” is functioning to enable better quality of life for the visually impaired.
The retina is the light-sensitive , nervous , layer of tissue at the back of the inner eye. It is akin to the film in a camera -- images come through the eye's lens and are focused on the retina.
The retina then converts these images to electric signals and sends them via the optic nerve to the brain. Anyone who experiences changes in sharpness or color perception, flashes of lights, floaters, or distortion in vision should get a retinal examination done at the earliest.
FFA ( Fundus Fluorescein Angiography)
A Fluorescein Angiogram is a series of photographs taken of the back of the eye (retina) after an injection of fluorescein is given into a vein in the back of the hand. Fluorescein is a yellow-orange dye.
It is carried around by the bloodstream and makes it easier for the blood vessels at the back of eye to be examined and photographed. It is used for diagnostic purposes in case of retinal pathologies and to decide what treatment is needed.
OCT (Optical coherence tomography)
OCT is a non- invasive procedure of imaging taking cross sectional images of the eye . It is used to obtain high-resolution images of the anterior segment of the eye and the retina . It is an interferometric technique, typically employing near-infrared light.
The use of relatively long wavelength light allows it to penetrate into the scattering medium.
USG – B Scan
Ultrasonography of the eye is the non- invasive procedure of choice to study the posterior segment in opaque and hazy media. In such cases, diagnostic B-scan ultrasound can accurately image intraocular structures and give valuable information on the status of the lens, vitreous, retina, choroid, and sclera.
It produces real-time two dimensional images of horizontal , vertical and transverse planes through the eye .
