Laser Vision Correction
Laser vision correction can correct myopia (short sight) upto -9.00D, Hyperopia (long sight) upto +4.00D, and astigmatism upto 6.00D.
Amanat Eye Hospital is equipped with the advanced software system for laser vision correction in which the treatment can be personalized for each eye of the patient.
A personalized zyoptix treatment (Customized LASIK) corrects the refractive errors to great accuracy and provides best quality of vision by additionally correcting the optical aberration of the eye. A tissue saving zyoptix, as the name suggests, corrects the required power using lesser amount of corneal tissue, thus can correct more refractive error in thin corneas. An Aspheric Zyoptix has the double advantage of correcting spherical aberration of the eye as well as maintaining natural corneal shape.
Retina is the neurosensory layer of the eye which is present inside and at the back of the eye. It is on this layer that an image seen by the eye is formed, which is converted to nerve signals and transferred to the brain. Hence person with a normal eye but with a retina disease will have poor vision. The common disease affecting the retina are :-
Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a common vascular retinal disease affecting about 40% of type 1 diabetics and 20% of type 2 diabetics. Duration of the diabetes is the most important risk factor for DR .
Treatment for DR includes Laser photocoagulation,Intra ocular injections (Avastin) and Surgical Treatment .Surgery is done with 23 gauge instruments and Alcon Accurus vitrectomy machine.
Instruments available include Topcon Digital fundus camera, Fundus flurosescein angiography (FFA-where a fluroscent dye is injected into the vein followed by taking a series of photographs of the retina), Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), B-scan.
