Glaucoma

At our institute a comprehensive eye check up helps us catch the disease in unsuspecting cases even before the person is aware of symptoms like frequent change of glasses, poor dark adaptation, headache mistaken to be migraine etc.

Glaucoma

Information on Glaucoma Glaucoma (kala motia) is the most common cause of irreversible blindness, asymptomatic until advanced stages. It is a chronic progressive optic neuropathy characterized by raised intra ocular pressure (IOP), optic nerve head (ONH) changes & visual field defects. But many patients have an IOP within normal range and a substantial proportion with normal IOP develop glaucomatous optic neuropathy. Besides raised IOP, other strongly associated factors include greater cup to disc ratio in ONH, thinner central cornea, shallow anterior chamber (A.C), increasing age, family history of glaucoma and diabetes. Issues in the management of Glaucoma are diagnosing the case at the earliest, even before any substantial structural damage has occurred. As IOP is the only recognizable and controllable cause hence assessing target IOP and controlling it to prevent any subsequent structural/ functional damage is the main stay of therapy. Newer imaging techniques help us provide information that is reproducible and free of inter-observer variability. At our institute, a comprehensive eye checkup helps us catch the disease in unsuspecting cases even before the person is aware of symptoms like frequent change of glasses, poor dark adaptation, headache mistaken to be migraine etc. With the help of the latest machines like pachymeter, OCT (both anterior and posterior segment), HVF (perimetry, both swap and white on white), UBM, Yag laser, early detection and management of glaucoma is of world class standards. Surgical, medical and laser treatment is done judiciously as and when required.

Squint and Orthoptics

Squint and orthoptics department matter Squint or cross eyes commonly known as ‘bhengapan’ is a common entity that can present in any age group. Besides the cosmetic stigma the person feels due to squint it can hamper the visual development. Squint develops when the eye muscles lose their coordination to work together. This can happen due to many reasons as weakness-and overaction of one muscle, refractive error, trauma or poor vision due to retinal problem and cataract. Treatment depends on the cause of squint. First and most important is an early eye checkup as one should not wait for the child to grow up to start treatment. Precious time is lost in waiting and restoration of vision is not complete if treatment is delayed. Treatment can be in form of glasses, exercises on machines, prisms, Botox injections or surgery. Timely intervention can treat squint completely. Lazy eye or amblyopia can occur due to squint or refractive error. It needs an early treatment for visual recovery. At our institute, we have a fully equipped department with trained orthopticians who take care of the pediatric age group with personal attention. Exercises are scheduled for every child in the hospital and given for home also. We have a full spectrum of treatment available for all types of squints with very good results.

I think that Doctor’s are God. Because they give us light. If God forget to give us complete and clear vision and I think that Intralase LASIK is a very much good option for the people who have weak eyesight. I thought that why I delayed this and wasted my life suffering because of sight. I thank great doctor Ajay Khanna that I will live with my full eyesight and enjoy my life with this Doctor’s Gift.
