Laser Eye Surgery
Laser eye surgery is a non-invasive procedure that uses a laser beam to reshape the cornea, the clear layer of the eye. This surgery can be categorized into two subtypes: LASEK (Laser-Assisted Sub-Epithelial Keratectomy) and LASIK (Laser-Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis).
Cataract surgery involves the removal and replacement of the crystalline lenses with artificial implants or intraocular lenses through a small incision. This surgery has a high success rate and helps to restore vision.
Glaucoma is a progressive condition that can cause vision loss due to damage to the optic nerve. It can be a secondary condition for people with diabetes and can affect any age group. Treatment options for Glaucoma include drainage implant surgery, trabeculectomy, and laser trabeculoplasty.
Corneal transplant or grafting is recommended when the damaged or diseased cornea needs to be replaced with corneal tissue or a donated graft. This procedure requires a healthy donor with no medical conditions or illnesses.
Vitreous Retinal Surgery
Vitreous retinal surgery is recommended when the vitreous humor gel fills the eye cavity. This surgery is performed close to the eye cavity, allowing the surgeon to repair or remove scarred tissue with better access to the eye. Vitreous retinal surgery can also be combined with laser treatment to repair retinal detachments and treat macular holes.
Eye muscle surgery
Eye muscle surgery corrects strabismus or eye misalignment and nystagmus or eye wiggling. This procedure involves adjusting the eye position by moving any or all of the eye muscles and is typically performed under general anesthesia.
Oculoplastic surgery, also known as ophthalmic or oculofacial reconstructive and plastic surgery, is a delicate procedure performed by an oculoplastic surgeon. It helps to manage deformities and abnormalities of the eyelids, lacrimal system, and orbit.
