Cornea related diseases and disorders
The cornea can be defined as a transparent layer forming the front part of the eye that shields the eye from harm and also acts as an eye’s outermost lens that allows entry of light in the eyes. As the cornea acts as a window that allows entry of light in the eye and contributes to 65-75 percent to the eye’s focusing strength. Corneal damage or other corneal diseases is a serious condition can cause clouding, distortion and even blindness in certain cases.
Refractive surgery and LASIK surgery
When the eye fails to focus the ray of light, the image that one sees is completely blurry. This error is known as refractive error. There are four different types of refractive errors. One, Nearsightedness, two, farsightedness, three, astigmatism and four, presbyopia LASIK surgery, is a type of corrective surgery that is practiced to correct refractive errors.
Retina and Vitreous disorders
The retina is a light-sensing tissue that resides below the cornea. Retina relays the images to the brain and without a properly functioning retina vision is negatively affected. Common retinal conditions are floaters, macular degeneration, diabetic eye disease, retinal detachment, etc.
Glaucoma is one of the leading cause of irreversible blindness worldwide including around 12 million Indians. The vision loss that is brought in by glaucoma is progressive and irreversible but treatment in early phases can cure glaucoma, unlike cataract.
The department of cataract surgeries at Madhav Netrayala practices surgeries that are painless, sutureless, bloodless and makes sure that the patient regains their vision immediately post surgery. In cataract, the lens in the eye gets cloudy and the images start being blurry for the patient. This process is a part of the common aging process.
A pediatric cataract is a leading cause of childhood blindness and if not treated immediately can cause a tremendous social, economic, and emotional burden on the child. Expert healthcare providers at Madhav Netralaya are experienced and trained to provide care of pediatric vision-related issues.
