Cataract surgery in children is also regularly performed. Following cataract surgery, over the next few years, there may be a slight blurring of vision due to posterior capsular opacification.  Nd:Yag laser capsulotomy, a simple OPD procedure, is done here for restoring the vision in such cases. The department is equipped with A- scan Ultrasonography and Keratometer for digital biometry.

Cornea Clinic                                                                           Top

Uveitis                                                                                      Top

Uveitis is a condition in which there is inflammation of the ocular coats. In many 1 cases this inflammation maybe the first sign of a more generalized disease. With the help of fundus flourescein angiography and modern laboratory facilities, our uveitis service can diagnose not only the ocular disorder, but also the systemic disease associated with it. The treatment of uveitis can be a challenge due to the recurrent nature of the disease. Our uveitis service works in co- ordination with physicians in prescribing steroids and immunosuppressive in the treatment of uveitis, both of which need careful monitoring. Chronic inflammation gives rise to complicated cataracts which are managed by phacoemulsification and heparin surface modified intraocular lenses, which reduce the inflammation in these high risk patients.
