  • CATARACT SURGERY
  • LASIK SURGERY
  • GLAUCOMA TREATMENT
  • REGULAR EYE CARE
Cataract is the clouding of the natural crystalline lens and typically occurs because of ageing, although other reasons may be prolonged use of steroids, exposure to ultra violet and associated health problems like diabetes and eye injuries.
Surgery is the only known effective treatment for cataract removal. All cataract surgeries are aimed at removal of the cloudy natural lens and replacing it with an Intra Ocular Lens(IOL). At Totey Eye Hospital Phacoemulsification is performed ( No stitch surgery) and a foldable IOL is inserted. There are multiple IOL choices available for the surgery which are explained below. These lenses can be inserted through a small 1.8 to 2.8 mm opening

Aberration free/ Aspheric IOLS
These IOLs gives good quality of vision post operative due to the lens design, it also improves the contrast sensitivity of the patient and good night vision. These lenses also filter the harmful UV light and blue light which are said to be harmful to the retina.

Toric IOLS
These IOLs correct the pre existing corneal astigmatism there by reducing the possibility of spectacle wear for distant vision post operatively
.

Multifocal IOLs
These IOLs provide clear vision for all distances hence almost 90% of the day-to-day activities can be performed without the need for additional glasses. Rarely the patient may experience glare during nights post operatively but usually gets adapted within a few months.


Accomodating IOLs
These IOLs have flexible hinges that enables them to change focus for different distances hence providing clear distance, intermediate and near vision without glasses
 
Now you can lose your glasses…. on purpose!!

Remember how your life changed when you had to get glasses? Now you can change it back and see naturally again. All this is possible now thanks to laser vision correction. We know you need more information to make an informed decision; so we would like to answer some of the questions you may have while considering this procedure.

What is LASIK ?
Laser Assisted Stromal In-situ Keratomileusis [LASIK] is a method of re-shaping the external surface of the eye [the cornea] to correct low, moderate and high degrees of nearsightedness, astigmatism and far-sightedness. During the treatment, an instrument called the microkeratome creates a corneal flap to make it a painless procedure. The computerized Excimer laser then uses a cool beam of light to gently reshape the cornea so as to alter its curvature to the desired extent. The flap when replaced on the new corneal curvature allows images to be sharply focused on the retina. The goal is to eliminate or greatly reduce the dependence on glasses or contact lenses.

Who is a candidate ?
The treatment is for patients who have a refractive error and meet certain visual and medical criteria. In addition the best candidates tend to be those who are dissatisfied with their contact lenses or glasses and are motivated to make a change, whether it is due to occupational or lifestyle reasons. However, only a thorough examination by our LASIK team can evaluate whether or not you are medically suited for LASIK.

Is LASIK safe ?
Yes. When choosing this method to improve your vision safety should be your first concern. It’s ours too. New generation Excimer lasers and advances in technique offer the highest degree of accuracy and utmost safety. Recent studies conducted internationally and by us show it to be a very safe and effective procedure.

Is LASIK successful ?
Yes. LASIK is a permanent treatment. However, patients who are 40 years and above may require reading glasses. Millions of patients worldwide and thousands at our centre have had an Excimer laser refractive procedure done on them successfully. During your consultation we will give you an idea of the procedure and the level of vision you can expect.

Are there other refractive procedures ?
You may have heard about PRK [photo refractive keratectomy]. You may have also heard about the surgery known as RK [radial keratotomy]. You need to understand that these are two completely different procedures from LASIK with less predictable results.

Is this the latest technology ?
The latest and most reliable procedure is wavefront-guided LASIK, a customized treatment for each eye. Our excimer lasers use high-speed sensitive eye trackers to ensure perfectly centered treatments. Wavefront procedures even often leave patients with eyesight better than normal. We are committed to providing our patients with the best that technology and technique has to offer. This is one of the best laser in Amravati, India.

Does this procedure hurt?
No. There is no pain during the procedure. There may be mild discomfort for a few hours after the procedure. I need to know what to expect the day of treatment ?
This is an outpatient procedure. The laser treatment usually takes less than a minute. The entire procedure usually takes 5-10 minutes per eye. First you will lie on a motorised bed to which the laser is attached. Anesthetic drops will be placed in the eye. The head is positioned under the laser and the eyelids are gently and comfortably kept open during the treatment with the help of a soft clip by our doctor. You will be asked to look at a blinking light during the entire procedure. Once the procedure is completed, a soft corneal protective shield is sometimes placed on the eye. A post-procedure eye examination is performed and eye drops are prescribed. We will inform you about the follow-up schedule.

How soon can i return to work ?
You will notice an improvement in vision within 4-6 hours and a restoration of functional vision by the next morning. However, complete recovery may take up to 48 hours. Some people get back to work the day after treatment. Two or three days are suggested.

Glaucoma is a disease of the eye which exhibits a typical optic neuropathy which results in progressive visual field loss.The most important risk factor is raised intraocular pressure.Risk factors for glaucoma include age above 40 years, diabetes, myopia, mature cataract, trauma, certain retinal diseases and a family history of glaucoma.

At Totey Eye Hospital the patient is investigated thoroughly with use a of Perimetry, Ocular coherence tomography (OCT) and then the treatment is personalised to the patient to maintain his vision and quality of life.
It's important for adults to have eye exams on a regular basis to check for problems.
Regular eye exams are critical for detecting:

* Glaucoma
* Age-related macular degeneration (AMD)
* Cataracts
* Diabetic retinopathy


But everyone needs regular eye exams. This is particularly important if you have risk factors or a family history of eye problems. Children need their vision checked at 6 months, 3 years, and before first grade. These exams should be done during preventative pediatrician visits and with a pre school eye screening. Adults should see an eye doctor at least every two years and annually after age 60.Your doctor may recommend more frequent exams if you have a health condition such as diabetes or high blood pressure, work in a visually demanding job, or take medications that can affect eyesight.

Preparing for Your Eye Exam
When you call to make an appointment for an eye exam, briefly and clearly describe any vision problem you're having.Before you go, list questions for the eye doctor. Be prepared to discuss any drugs you're taking and your (and your family's) eye health history.When you go, take your glasses and/or contact lenses, if you use them, and sunglasses for the trip home with your pupils dilated.


During Your Eye Exam
Before your eye exam, the eye doctor or an office staff member will take your medical and vision history. Your eye exam may take from half an hour to an hour. It will evaluate both your vision and the health of your eyes.

You'll likely have all or most of the following eye tests (you may also have more specialized eye tests)
Eye muscle movement tests: To assure that the eyes are normally aligned, the doctor will ask you to visually track a target in different directions and observe your eye movements.
Cover test: This is a check for how well your eyes work together. As you stare at a small target some distance away, the doctor will cover and uncover each eye to observe how much your eyes move, watching for an eye that turns away from the target (strabismus). The test may be repeated with a target close to you.
