Ophthalmology/Eye Surgery

The Department of Ophthalmology at our hospital aims to set benchmarks in all aspects of ophthalmic care delivery to the patients and the public. Guidance is provided for all types of eye disorders and the services are reviewed regularly to keep them aligned with changing demands and technology.

The goal of ophthalmologists is to eliminate the suffering caused by eye disorders, by providing the highest quality of medical and surgical eye care for patients. The department offers a full complement of services, including:

  • Screening and treatment for common eye diseases — cataract, glaucoma and diabetes-related eye problems
  • Spectacle and contact lens prescriptions
  • Evaluation of patients who may have visual loss or complaints but do not know the diagnosis

Our multidisciplinary expertise ensures care for not just primary disorders of the eye but also eye problems related to other systemic diseases like diabetes, thyroid disorders, autoimmune conditions, stroke, etc. Many eye problems are related to certain medical conditions and being a multi-specialty hospital, we refer patients to other specialties for evaluation and comprehensive, multi-disciplinary treatment and management.

Specially trained nurses and technicians assist in the office and during all surgical procedures.
