Equipment

With its reputation constantly growing, the Hospital raised its bed strength from 40 to 80 and twin Air-Conditioned Operation Theatres. The Theatres were made suitable for retinal surgery also. The implantation of intro-ocular lens, which has captured public attention, these days is in preference to the traditional cataract operation, has received a big boost as a result of the pains-taking efforts of our eminent Consultants, state of the art cataract surgery by Phaco emulsification and Foldable IOLs Acry Sof, Multi focal and classic IOL s are now being performed regularly.

The hospital is fully equipped, with state of the art eye care equipment like, Operating Microscopes, Slit lamps, YagLaser, Argon Laser, A-Scan, Humphery Field Analyser, Synoptophore, Indirect Ophthalmoscopes, B.Scan, Fundus Angiography, Fundus Photography, and latest addition is Ocular Computerized Tonography, which is used for Anterior and Posterior Segment, etc.

The Hospital has latest sophisticated equipments besides the basic machineries such as:

Phaco emulsification

Phaco emulsification

Phaco emulsification with IOL implantation offers state of the art cataract surgery to patients.  The advantages of Phaco are:
  • Small incision cataract surgery, therefore no stitches are required
  • There is minimal trauma to the eyes during surgery.
  • Very early visual recording. Very little precautions need to be taken by the patient.
  • He / She may be allowed to go ahead to work in 2-3 days itself.
  • The visual results are very predictable.
A-Scan

A-Scan:

A-Scan is a routine type of diagnostic test used in ophthalmology. This equipment provides data on the length of the eye, which is a major determinant in common sight disorders. The most common use is to determine eye length for calculation of intraocular lens power.
A-Scan

Auto Refractometer:

The operator measure the refractive error and help in accurate prescription of glasses even in children and measure diameter of the cornea, pupil or hard contact lenses worn by the patient. The patient focuses on a color photo target and when measurement is taken the data displays instantly.
A-Scan

B-Scan with UBM:

B-Scan with UBM equipment is used as a diagnostic test in ophthalmology to produce a two-dimensional, cross-sectional view of the eye and the orbit. This equipment provides a general understanding of echographic characteristics of various ocular pathologies.
A-Scan

Fundus Camera:

This is the most important equipment in eye-care laser treatment. With the help of this equipment photograph of the interior parts of the eye, defects in the alignment of the blood vessels in the retina can be taken basing on which laser treatment is initiated. This equipment is useful in the treatment of eye diseases like diabetes retinopathy, CRVO, Eales disease, C.S.R. and age related macular degeneration (exudative type). Fluoresceine angiography gives basis for the laser treatment.
A-Scan

automated visual field AnalyZer:

It is the newest and most advanced visual field testing platform for glaucoma and optic nerve diseases. This equipment determines the stage of disease, rate of progression and a patient's risk of future vision loss by automatically summarizing all available visual field test results, by calculating each patient's rate of visual field deterioration. With this advanced perimeter, you can more closely monitor changes in the eye to prevent irreversible loss of vision for a disease that often has no warning signs.
A-Scan

OCT:

The OCT equipment uses a technique called optical coherence tomography which creates images by use of special beams of light. The OCT machine can create a contour map of the optic nerve, optic cup and measure the retinal nerve fiber thickness.
A-Scan

Synoptophore:

This is an Ophthalmic instrument, used for diagnosing imbalance of eye muscles and treating them by orthoptic methods. All the standard measurements and treatments are possible on this instrument including assessment of the angle alpha, the objective angle, abnormal retina correspondence, cyclophoria, hyperphoria and horizontal vertical vergences.
A-Scan

Yag-Laser:

Yag laser equipment produces short-pulsed, high-energy light beams to cut, perforate, or fragment tissue useful to improve vision when posterior capsule thickens after surgery. The YAG laser is commonly used to vaporize a portion of the capsule, allowing light to pass through to the retina. The procedure is completely painless, takes only a few minutes, and is effective in eliminating the cloudy condition.
