The SMILE eye surgery is a short form for Small Incision Lenticular Extraction. It is a highly advanced technology of blade-free laser vision correction, with even more precision than Femto-LASIK procedures that are widely done.

While Femto-LASIK surgery still uses a laser procedure to create the corneal flap, SMILE does not have any need of the corneal flap. The surgeon performs the procedure without having any effect on the cornea cells, inflicting hardly any pain or discomfort during or after the surgery is done. SMILE is different from previous treatment methods because it is a one-laser surgery. Unlike LASIK or PRK, the reshaped cornea improves the vision of the patient.

It is a fully automated next-generation procedure that is completed in a short time to give long-lasting and stable results. The chances that a patient might require retreatment are very low in comparison to other blade-free LASIK procedures.

[description] =>

Those who have a stable power and want to get rid of specs or contact lenses can get SMILE vision correction. It is used most for correcting myopia, showing excellent results and improved vision. Aside from myopia, it can also be used to treat mild astigmatism, with cylindrical power up to -0.5 only.

Is SMILE surgery safe?

The latest and advanced SMILE procedure is safe and effective in correcting eye problems. This extraction surgery has been done since 2012 and has been done officially in the US since 2016. It is now an FDA approved procedure done on patients from the ages of 18 to 40 years. SMILE is performed only after the tests are done to gauge the condition of the eye. Centre for Sight ensures safe practices for all its testing and treatments, as is the case for SMILE eye surgery.

The incision made during SMILE is only 2mm wide, far less invasive than the 20mm one made in LASIK or the 8mm one done during PRK procedures. This also reduces the disturbance that corneal nerves suffer in other surgical procedures.

Another point in favour of SMILE is that there are almost no post-surgery complications because no corneal flap was created in the operation. With overall better cornea biomechanics, this key-hole surgery ensures speedy recovery of the patient.

Your eye is anaesthetized before the surgery and then prevented from blinking or closing with the help of a speculum. The surgeon utilizes Femto laser technology to create precise lenticular surfaces in the cornea and later removing the lenticule through the incision.

The whole process is finished under 15 mins, with the laser being used only for a small time and the patient left without any discomforts. The patients are free to go back home after being checked by their doctor once again after the surgery.

The SMILE eye surgery technology was specially devised to lessen the occurrence of dry eyes along with reduced strength of cornea. It is suggested in a number of surveys that it helps in resolving issues that people have previously suffered from.

  • Less Invasive
  • Uncomplicated
  • Blade-free and Painless
  • Quicker Surgery & Recovery
  • Better Results

The recovery from SMILE surgery is slower than the recovery from LASIK or other similar procedures. It is due to this, patients often miss out on the instantaneous experience of seeing better in just half an hour of a laser vision correction operation. With highly sophisticated technology and infrastructure that Centre for Sight offers, the patients get the best service and care.

FAQs

What is the full form of SMILE surgery?

SMILE surgery stands for Small Incision Lenticular Extraction surgery.

Can astigmatism be treated by SMILE?

It can treat astigmatism up to -0.5 only, not any more than that.

Is SMILE procedure very painful?

The whole surgery is carried out without causing any pain or discomfort to the eyes. The recovery time is also very fast, which allows you to adjust to the changes very quickly.

How quick is the recovery after SMILE?

The recovery time is different for every patient, but on average, most people can get back home the very next day after surgery. It is a quick and hassle-free recovery.

Are there any complications after SMILE surgery?

SMILE eye surgery was developed to minimise the complications that used to happen in previous surgical techniques. Nowadays, post-operation issues are almost zero and the whole process is pain-free.

Is SMILE a laser surgery?

SMILE eye surgery is a blade-free one-laser surgery. This means that throughout the procedure, the laser is only used once.

Do I need to prepare for my eye surgery?

There are no special preparations that a patient needs to do on his/ her part. All preparations are suggested and done by the staff and doctors of the centre.

Why is SMILE better than other laser surgeries?

SMILE eye surgery is better than other laser procedures like LASIK and PRK because it is flapless. With just one laser and no blades, it does not require corneal flaps and is relatively simple.

How accurate is SMILE eye surgery?

It is a very accurate and precise procedure. It does not affect the cornea cells or does any damage to the tissues. It is acknowledged to be better than LASIK in most cases.

Am I eligible for SMILE surgery?

Patients suitable for the LASIK procedure can also undergo SMILE surgery. However, you have to consult the ophthalmologist first. Book your appointment at Centre for Sight for a detailed examination now.

About LASIK

Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis, more popularly known by the name of LASIK, is a procedure that corrects vision problems and altogether eliminates the necessity of spectacles or corrective lenses.
This refractive surgery reshapes the clear round dome at the front of the eye (cornea) and bends the rays of light to focus on the retina instead of someplace else. The end result is a sharper and clearer vision.

[description] =>

LASIK surgery corrects the following refractive errors:

  • Nearsightedness (Myopia): A condition where you are able to see the nearby objects clearly but not far away things. Both these cases consequent the light rays to focus on retina’s front rather than on it, blurring faraway vision.
  • Farsightedness (Hyperopia): A condition where you are able to see the distant objects clearly, but not the nearby things.
  • Astigmatism: Persistent blurred state of near and far away vision due to corneal uneven curves or flatness.
  • Presbyopia: Also called the ‘Aging Eye’ condition, it refers to long-sightedness caused by the loss of elasticity of eye lens occurring generally in the middle & old age.

Centre for Sight has been providing the most advanced LASIK treatment options for the correction of all these refractive errors for many years now.

Understanding the evolution of LASIK

LASIK has been making waves in the medical world for almost 25 years. Earliest days witnessed the oncoming of Refractive Keratectomy (RK) in which manual cuts were performed on the eye to alter the shape of the cornea.

Blade-free LASIK made its advent a decade ago concentrating on removing the corneal tissue in order to give it a new shape. A superior feat than its predecessor, this procedure used FEMTO laser to create a corneal flap and guaranteed precise results. However, there was a minor setback. Despite being a bladeless procedure, doctors still had to create a corneal flap. Small Incision Lenticule Extraction (SMILE) eliminated that too.

Types of LASIK Eye Surgery

Different type of LASIK treatment is chosen by different patients according to their suitability and eligibility for the procedure. All these solutions stand to be safe and reliable.

PRK/Surface Ablation: The Excimer laser procedure is used and a bandage contact lens is placed. The healing process involves slight pain in the early phase and causes a slight delay in visual recovery. However, because of its numerous advantages, it is still a preferred technique for the patients who are deemed unfit for LASIK flap creation.

Clasik/Blade LASIK: The LASIK procedure uses an extremely fine blade named ‘MicroKeratome’ to cut the corneal flap and then employs Excimer laser for corneal shape correction.

Bladefree/Bladeless/ilasik: No manual blade needed here. A Femto laser creates a clean and precise flap minimising every possible complication of a blade.

Small Incision Lenticule Extraction (SMILE): Currently the best procedure for specs-removal, this 100% blade-free laser vision correction method needs no flap at all. Patients experience little discomfort for a couple of hours, but resume routine activities almost immediately after the procedure. Computer controlled for maximum precision, SMILE takes only 20-30 seconds per eye.

Advantages of opting for SMILE procedure over the conventional LASIK treatment include:

  • No Corneal Flap Creation – Meaning no risk of corneal flap displacement or any subsequent complications occurring.
  • Less Dry Eyes: Small incision makes sure that there is almost no cutting of corneal nerves, resulting in the less dry eyes & improved corneal sensitivity.
  • Better Corneal Biomechanics: There is minimal to almost no loss of corneal biomechanical strength.
  • Greater Precision & Stability: SMILE uses a Femtosecond Laser and not an Excimer Laser, which means that the total energy introduced by the laser into the eye is 10-times lower, less inflammation, and has greater stability.
  • Fully Automated & Quick: This process takes only 20-30 seconds per eye and has delivered outstanding visual results with more patients achieving 20/20 vision.
  • Enhanced Ability To See Clearly In Low Light: Patients are able to see much better in dark, even at dusk or at night.

FAQs

Q1. Is LASIK surgery painful?

The LASIK procedure is almost painless and is performed with topical drop anaesthesia. Patients can walk in and out of the operation theatre in less than 15 minutes.

Q2. Can you blink during LASIK?

A speculum is placed on the eye that prevents a person from blinking during the procedure.

Q3. Can I watch TV/use the mobile phone after LASIK surgery?

Though watching TV will not harm the eyes, you will have difficulty for a few days as your eyes heal.

Q4. How long do I wear sunglasses after LASIK?

For about 3 days indoors and 3 weeks outdoors.

Q5. How long after LASIK will the blurry vision go away?

Most of the blurriness goes away by about the next day, though the clarity gradually increases over a couple of weeks.

Q6. How many days of rest is required after LASIK surgery?

No bed rest is required after the LASIK surgery.

Q7. How long after LASIK will my vision stabilize?

Usually, the vision continues to stabilize for until about a month.

Q8. When can I rub eyes after LASIK?

You should avoid rubbing the eye after LASIK surgery for a couple of weeks.

Q9. Can I shower after LASIK surgery?

You should take a below-the-neck bath for a few days after the surgery.

Q10. Can you drive after LASIK surgery?

Should be avoided until the eyes heal.

Q11. Can you see immediately after LASIK?

Yes, but your vision might be slightly blurred.

Q12. How long should you sleep after LASIK?

You can follow your normal sleep/wake pattern after LASIK Surgery.

Q13. Can laser eye surgery go wrong?

If the laser removes too little/too much tissue from your eye, you won't get the clear vision results you were hoping for. This can be corrected by a repeat procedure after the eye heals completely.

Q14. Can LASIK make you go blind?

No reported cases of blindness caused by LASIK exist. Nevertheless, when the correct aftercare protocol is not observed, the resulting complications (especially infections) can cause blindness. This is extremely rare but has happened. LASIK surgery itself does not cause blindness, and most cases of LASIK complications are avoidable by following aftercare procedures set forth by the surgeon.

One of the eyesight problems that people commonly suffer from is Cataract. In layman's language, a cataract is clouding of the natural lens in the eye. It becomes almost opaque over time and starts to affect vision. In a normal functioning eye, the light rays pass through a clear lens to form an image on the retina. The image signals sent to the brain form a person’s sense of sight. When the lens is not clear due to a cataract, no clear image can be formed on the retina resulting in poor vision.

Development of Cataract

The development of cataract happens slowly over the years in some cases, and rapidly in others. This can cause difficulties in performing daily activities like reading, driving or watching things from a distance.

[description] =>

Here are some of the main reasons for the development of cataract:-

  • Ageing: People older than 60 years of age are at the risk of getting cataract.
  • Exposure: An overexposure to UV rays can negatively affect the eyes and cause cataract.
  • Drug-induced: One can get cataract due to prolonged usage of steroids and other prescription drugs.
  • Diabetes: People with diseases like diabetes are more likely to develop a cataract.
  • Injury-induced: An injury to the eye can cause cataract or even complete loss of vision.

Treatment

Cataract cannot be corrected with glasses, the clouding of the natural lens essentially prevents that. There is no specific medication to cure it, patients undergo surgeries for cataract removal instead. Centre For Sight offers a number of surgical options depending upon the severity of the cataract, its cause and current condition of the patient’s eyes. The surgery best suited to the case is suggested after thorough testing only.

Testing for Cataract :

At our centre, a team of medical professionals like optometrists, doctors, nurses and surgeons are assigned to the patient for testing and treatment. If the cataract is harmless, it can be left untouched. As soon as it starts to truly block vision in routine things, one should look into testing and surgical solutions.

The different types of tests we do here are:

  • Biometry/ Intraocular Lens (IOL) Work up: to check the IOL power required in the eyes.
  • Specular Microscopy: to check the status of the cornea and for any corneal disease.
  • OCT test: to check for any retinal pathology.
  • B Scan/ Ultrasound: to check the well-being of retina and other structures inside the eye.
  • Pentacam test: to test irregularities in cornea due to past LASIK/ PRK/ RK surgeries.

Surgeries for Cataract:

The breakdown of what happens in a cataract operation is that the surgeon removes damaged lens from the eye’s lens bag and replaces it with an artificial one that is clear and works in place of the original one.

There are many ways to perform cataract-removal surgeries, and here are the types of surgeries that we conduct at Centre For Sight:

  • Microincision Cataract Surgery (MICS): In this method, a 1.8mm to 2mm large incision is made by the surgeon for replacement of natural lens with an artificial lens. Everything from the incision to the breaking of the lens into smaller pieces for easing its removal, is done manually by the surgeon. It is an incredibly delicate task that requires a lot of skill from the doctors.
     
  • Femto Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery (FLACS): In this type of surgery, the first 5 steps of the surgery are automated, reducing the time and energy put into the otherwise manual surgery. The incisions are blade-free, the capsulotomy is precise and the cataract is considerably softer.

There a numerous types of intraocular lens (IOL) options that we use to replace the original one:

  • Monofocal IOL: It is a lens beneficial for distance vision, but will require the patient to wear spectacles for computer work or reading after the surgery is performed.
     
  • Premium Monofocal IOL: This lens is not perfectly spherical in shape. Due to its high definition nature, it provides both quantity and great quality of vision with its contrast & light sensitivity, leading to great picture quality. Yet, the patient usually has to wear glasses after surgery because it’s still a monofocal lens.
     
  • Multifocal Lens IOL: For most day-to-day activities, this lens provides great vision without the need for corrective glasses. Some patients still may experience halos and glares during night driving.
     
  • Newer Multifocal IOL: Most of the issues that were present in the multifocal lens are resolved in this lens. Thus, the halos and glares are also reduced. There are 2 main types of multifocal lens that we provide at Centre for Sight:
    • Extended Depth of Focus Lens (Symfony lens): Since this lens is binocularly implanted, it facilitates active near vision and good vision for distance, without any glares and halos.
       
    • Trifocal Lens: This lens is good for reading, distance vision and for intermediate distance vision including computer work.

As the anaesthetic wears off after surgery, patients might feel a dull pain in the eye. Initially, it might be red with wateriness and blurred vision. The operated area heals and the eye settles in 2 to 4 weeks after the surgery. The feeling of having some outside object inside their body slowly subsides after a few months. Contact the doctors again if any discomfort persists or arises.

FAQs

What are the common symptoms of cataract?

Cataracts grow gradually with the slow blurring of vision that is not correctable by glasses. Some people get their vision quickly deteriorated, with difficulty in nighttime driving, glares, halos and overall foggy vision.

Can cataracts infect an eye because the other eye already has it?

Cataract does not spread from eye to eye but it often develops in both eyes together or after a brief gap.

Do cataracts develop due to getting old?

Cataracts very commonly occur in adult life. These are age-induced cataracts and may develop after 40 years of age. But not all people develop a cataract in old age and not all who develop it require treatment.

Does cataract happen in children?

It happens in rarest of rare cases.

If I have a cataract in both eyes, can they be treated at the same time?

Cataract generally develops in one eye faster than the other, so it is advisable to operate the one in worse condition first. But it is possible to operate on both at the same time at Centre for Sight after understanding the pros and cons of it.

Does a previously done laser operation matter in cataract treatment?

Since laser operations like LASIK and PRK are done to improve vision without the need for glasses, it is important to inform your cataract team beforehand.

Transform how you see the world. With Robotic laser cataract surgery.

Cataract is the clouding of the lens of your eye with ageing that impairs vision. Now it’s easier than ever to regain clear vision after cataract. Take advantage of Robotic Femtosecond laser, the world’s first laser-automated technology for cataract surgery at Centre for Sight.

Why Choose Robotic Laser cataract surgery:

  • Blade Free cataract experience
  • Working of laser takes about 30-40 seconds only
  • Greater precision and safety
  • Critical steps of surgery are fully automated
  • Better visual outcome with quicker recovery

Cataract

In cataract, there is a buildup of protein in the lens of the eye which makes it cloudy. This prevents light from passing clearly through the lens, thereby causing loss of vision.

Advancing age is a primary reason for cataract. With age, protein of the lens turns opaque. Other causes of cataract are metabolic disorders such as diabetes, excessive exposure to sunlight, lifestyle disorders like heavy alcohol consumption and smoking. Injury to the eye can also lead to clouding of the lens of the eye.

Treatment of Cataract

When cataract forms, surgery is the only way to treat it. In cataract surgery, the surgeon removes the clouded lens and puts an Intra Ocular Lens (IOL) in your eye. Your vision will be as good as pre-cataract days, though you may need to wear glasses. Over the years, cataract surgery has moved from vision restorative to refractive surgery, so that you have reduced need of glasses.

Best cataract treatment requires the combination of expertise of experienced doctors and latest technology working together. Centre for Sight is considered as one of the leading hospitals in India for cataract surgery. The hospitals are fully equipped with trained eye specialists for treatment of the patients.

Let diabetes not affect your eyes

Diabetes is a leading cause of blindness in the world. It may lead to frequent fluctuations, floater and spots in your vision; pain pressure or constant redness of the eye, cataract in young age etc. The most significant complication of Diabetes in eyes is Diabetic Retinopathy.

Treatment options for Diabetic retinopathy include Laser photocoagulation, Intravitreal injections and Vitrectomy. Equipped with the latest technology and vast diagnostic and surgical experience, the Retina Department of Excellence at Centre for Sight offers all-inclusive medical and surgical management of even the most complex vitreo-retinal diseases with best possible outcomes.

[description] =>

Diabetes is a metabolic disorder which interferes with body’s ability to use and store sugar. It usually affects adults in their late forties or fifties. However, these days owing to lifestyle changes even young people can get diabetes. The classic symptoms of diabetes are increased thirst, frequent urination, weight loss, tiredness or blurred vision.

Uncontrolled diabetes can affect eyes, nerves and kidneys. Individuals with diabetes are more likely to develop cataracts at a younger age and are twice as likely to develop glaucoma as are non-diabetics. However, the primary vision problem caused by diabetes is Diabetic Retinopathy which damages the blood vessels of the retina.

In uncontrolled diabetes, high sugar in the blood can damage blood vessels of the eye. As damage progresses, they begin to leak which results in accumulation of the fluid in the central part of the retina. This deterioration of the blood vessels causes hindrance in supply of oxygen and nutrients needed by retina to stay healthy.

The spectrum of services provided by Centre for Sight includes retina care with advanced vitreoretinal surgeries, retinal detachment treatment, Diabetic Retinopathy management, laser retina treatment and anti-VEGF intravitreal injections.

Warning Symptoms:

  • Blurred, double, or distorted vision or difficulty reading.
  • Floaters or spots in your vision.
  • Partial or total loss of vision or a shadow or veil across your field of vision.
  • Pain, pressure, or constant redness of the eye.

All diabetics are at risk of getting Diabetic Retinopathy. The risk multiplies the longer a person lives with diabetes. It has been observed that about 80% of long standing diabetics (15 years or more of diabetes) have some damage in the blood vessels of retina. Diabetic retinopathy can occur at a young age in juvenile diabetics.

Diabetic retinopathy is a silent vision stealer. In early stage, there is hardly any symptom. Hence, a diabetic must strictly get his eye exam done every year. If detected early, vision loss can be prevented. But, once the damage is done, the effects are irreversible.

The ophthalmologist will do a comprehensive eye investigation to detect Diabetic Retinopathy. The eye exam includes visual acuity tests, eye pressure measurements and direct visualization of the retina with an ophthalmoscope. Sometimes the ophthalmologist may require more extensive imaging with technology like Fundus Fluorescein Angiography (FFA) and Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) to capture the details of the damage caused by abnormal blood vessels & assess the severity of the condition. Centre for Sight is well equipped with latest spectralis system of OCT & OCT angiography.

Diabetic Retinopathy Treatment

Laser Photocoagulation:

It is the most common line of action for Diabetic retinopathy treatment. But remember, this can only save the existing sight level and cannot make it better. In laser treatment, the retina specialist uses laser to destroy areas of retina deprived of oxygen which helps to prevent growth of new blood vessels into these areas. It can be done in multiple sessions. In most cases, this procedure causes the new blood vessels to regress and swelling to subside. It usually takes three to four months to be fully effective.

Sometimes the new blood vessels bleed into the gel like centre (vitreous) of the eye. This condition – Vitreous hemorrhage can lead to a sudden loss of vision. If the vitreous hemorrhage is persistent then a procedure called Vitrectomy is recommended. This is a microsurgical procedure for diabetic retinopathy treatment which removes the blood and scar tissue from the centre of the eye. Many patients have improved vision after vitrectomy.

Intravitreal Injections:

These help patients with gross swelling in the macula. It may require injections into the eye of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) inhibitor drug or steroid to reduce the growth of abnormal blood vessels and leakage of fluid from them. These may also be used prior to surgery to reduce the bleeding.

The choice of treatment depends on the stage of the disease, the age of the patient and the recommendations of the retina specialist. With specialist retina panel and advanced technology in the field, Centre for Sight is a destination for diabetic retinopathy treatment in India.

Diabetic Retinopathy Treatment – Success Rate

Patients who have already lost vision from the disease usually do not regain the original vision. However, vision loss from complications such as bleeding into the eye or cataracts can be regained after diabetic retinopathy treatment. There is evidence that proper blood sugar control can delay and limit the progression and complications of Diabetic Retinopathy for people with diabetes.

Retinal Detachment & It's Management

Retinal detachment is an extremely grave eye condition that happens when the retina separates from the tissue behind it. One can permanently lose vision if the retina detachment isn't repaired promptly. Our team of expert retina specialists is well known across the country for management of even the worst case scenarios.

Retinal tears are although different than retinal detachment, but they are often the first stage leading to retinal detachment. If fluid from within the eye passes through a retinal tear that can separate the retina from its underlying tissue requiring prompt sealing of the same with lasers.

Retina surgery is available with us at Delhi, Hyderabad and Gurgaon. All our centers are equipped to handle medical retina cases

Preserve your sight for the best years of your life

Age-related macular degeneration (ARMD or AMD) is a disease that causes progressive deterioration or breakdown of the eye's macula. The macula is that part of the retina which is responsible for your central vision, allowing you to see fine details clearly. Macular degeneration is a part of body’s natural ageing process. It is quite common after the age of 65 years.

Treatment may slow down or prevent progressive loss of vision but may not bring the lost vision back. ARMD treatment plan includes Laser therapy & PDT, Anti–VEGF injections, Combination Therapy and Low Vision Aids. At Centre for Sight, we house the best infrastructure and state-of-the-art medical equipment with a pool of experienced Retina specialists so that you can be assured that you are in the best hands.

Uveitis

Understanding Uveitis

Uveitis is the inflammation of the Uvea which is made up of Iris, Ciliary body and Choroid. If we think of the eye as a hollow, fluid-filled, 3-layered ball, then the outer most layer is the sclera (a tough coat), the inner-most is the retina, (the thin light-gathering layer), and the middle layer is the Uvea (the vascular layer).
 

Signs and symptoms of Uveitis

•    Anterior Uveitis is associated with eye pain, redness, blurring of vision and light sensitivity.
•    Intermediate and Posterior forms of Uveitis may more typically be associated with floaters, flashes of light and blurred vision.

Treatment for Uveitis will depend on which areas of the eye are affected and what has caused the condition. Medication through drops and injections is the main treatment, but surgery can be used in particularly severe cases. At Centre for Sight, we house the best infrastructure and state-of-the-art medical equipment with a pool of experienced Retina specialists so that you can be assured that you are in the best hands.
The majority of cases of uveitis are idiopathic. This means that the process occurs without a specific identifiable cause or an associated health problem elsewhere in the body. In some cases however, an underlying health condition may be present. Underlying causes of uveitis may be broadly categorized as autoimmune disorders, infections, trauma, malignancy or other causes.
The eye needs to be examined very thoroughly to see what type of Uveitis you have. This usually involves instillation of eye drops to make the pupils wider so that the doctor can look into your eye more thoroughly. It is equally important to see if there is evidence of any other underlying cause like Auto immune disorders, infections, trauma etc. This may involve a whole variety of tests like blood tests, X-rays, scans, etc.

Treatment of Uveitis

The findings may be very similar, but the Treatment of Uveitis varies significantly depending on the type and cause of the Uveitis.
•    In the case of autoimmune Uveitis, the treatment may involve the use of corticosteroids and/or immunosuppressive drugs.
•    Treatment of Uveitis that stems from an infection, targets the treatment of the underlying infection.
•    Likewise, Uveitis may be a manifestation of a malignant condition. In this case, it is managed along with treating the underlying malignancy.

The treatment of some forms of Uveitis may involve collaboration between ophthalmologists and other specialists such as rheumatologists, infectious disease specialists or oncologists. Most patients with acute Uveitis do not lose vision and treatment is aimed at controlling the inflammation to prevent any visual loss. The main causes of visual loss in patients with chronic Uveitis are cataract, glaucoma or damage to the back of the eye from high pressure inside the eye, and macular edema or ‘waterlogging’ of the retina due to the chronic inflammation. All these conditions are treatable. At Centre for Sight, our experienced Retina & Uvea specialists are fully equipped to provide the best Uveitis treatment in India.

Let’s start by understanding what cornea is and what is its role when it comes to vision. A cornea is a clear, convex (dome-shaped) outer layer of eye that forms an important refractive surface where light rays enter and then focus on the retina. Furthermore, it also acts as a protective layer against dust, dirt, and germs.

There are many types of corneal problems that can affect your vision and cause problems with the cornea’s structure. Below are the two conditions that are most commonly seen in patients nowadays and effectively managed by the specialists at Centre for Sight.

[description] =>

Corneal Ulcer

A corneal ulcer is an open sore that occurs due to various reasons. Some reasons being infection, severe dryness of the eye, trauma, allergy, and incomplete eyelid closure. In all these cases, the bacteria or fungi enters cornea through minor erosions or abrasions and cause ulcer.
The occurrence of ulcer is more commonly seen in contact lens users. Common symptoms to look out for are decreased vision, redness of eyes, watering, swelling, pain and photophobia (extreme sensitivity to light).

Medical Management of Corneal Ulcer

If caused due to an infection, the first step of treatment is identification of microorganism causing this malady. A part of ulcer is mildly scraped for investigation. After identification, treatment targeted specifically at the causative agent is prescribed in form of eyedrops and many-a-times tablets.

Surgical Management of Corneal Ulcer

n uncontrolled corneal ulcer becomes a sight-threatening condition. In certain cases, surgical treatment is the only option left. If the ulcer is unresponsive to medical treatment or if the ulcer is large to begin with, a corneal transplant is done to save the eye. The purpose of corneal transplant here is to remove the microbiological load and prevent the infection from spreading to deeper structures of the eye.

Keratoconus

It is a condition where the cornea progressively weakens and loses its dome-shaped structure to a conical shape. Keratoconus can be identified via symptoms of reduced vision, frequent change in glass power, double vision, high cylindrical number, and seeing halos & shadows around objects.
Causes include recurrent allergies or constant habit of eye rubbing. Mostly, Keratoconus starts from childhood and progresses upto the age of 30-32 years. Though in small percentage, it even progresses beyond this age.

Investigations

First diagnosis of Keratoconus is the rapidly changing refractive error i.e. glass prescription. A dilated refraction accurately assesses this refractive error of each eye.

Conclusions to the severity of this condition can only be drawn by a Corneal Topography done by Pentacam. It shows the alterations of the cornea and helps the specialists draw a successful treatment plan for the patient.

Corvis-ST shows the extent of biomechanical weakening of the cornea that causes it to lose its original shape.

  • Refraction
  • Pentacam
  • Corvis-ST

Management

Patients with active or recurrent allergies are given anti-allergic treatments and are advised to avoid rubbing their eyes.

Corneal Collagen Crosslinking (C3R) halts the progression of Keratoconus. During the procedure, cornea’s top layer is scraped to instill riboflavin drops and soak cornea for 20-30 min. Prior to this, UV-A radiation exposure is concentrated on patient’s eyes for 10 minutes. Once done, eye is washed and contact lens is placed over cornea to be worn for 3-4 days.

PMMA ring segments insertion into corneal stroma for alteration of the shape of cornea is known as INTACS. This procedure assists in regularizing & flattening of the corneal shape and is generally advised in cases of eccentric cones (diagnosed through Pentacam) or high astigmatism. INTACS is performed along with C3R in same sitting.

Conservative management methods might not prove complaint in the advanced cases of Keratoconus. As a last resort in such cases , corneal transplant is advised. Available state-of-the-art options include Deep Anterior Lamellar Keratoplasty (DALK) i.e. a Partial Thickness Transplant or Full-Thickness/Penetrating Corneal Transplant (PK). Specialists decide on the choice of the transplant procedure depending on the corneal condition and depth of the scar created by keratoconus.

  • INTACS

FAQs

Is corneal damage permanent?

Corneal damage may or may not be permanent depending upon the disease.

How long does corneal transplant last?

Corneal transplant once done, lasts lifelong if the graft is accepted by the body. However, in cases of graft rejection or failure, repeat surgeries may be required.

How long one has to wait for a corneal transplant?

The eye bank arranges for donor corneal tissue. Patients may have to wait for the availability for a healthy donor cornea of the appropriate age and good quality for some time.

Are corneal transplants successful?

Yes. Corneal transplants are successful. Certain medicines are prescribed to aid in the acceptance and survival of the graft.

Can a corneal transplant cure glaucoma?

Corneal transplant does not cure glaucoma.

How do I know if I need a corneal transplant?

The consulting ophthalmologist would determine whether you need a corneal transplant or not.

What happens if I scratch the cornea?

Corneal traumas in the form of abrasions occur. These abrasions may get infected and cause ulcer if not treated in time.

Is a corneal abrasion an emergency case?

Yes, it is. It is a painful condition and needs urgent attention before it gets infected and forms a corneal ulcer.

How much time does corneal abrasion takes to heal?

Depending on the size of the abrasion, it may take 24-73 hours to heal.

Can a corneal abrasion cause permanent damage?

Usually corneal abrasion heals without any permanent damage, provided it is not infected.

Can you go blind by Keratoconus?

Advanced Keratoconus may reduce the vision to an extent where daily routine activities may become difficult.

What is the best treatment for Keratoconus?

There are various treatment options available depending on the severity of Keratoconus.

Can Keratoconus be reversed?

No. It cannot be reversed, however its progression can be halted.

Can Keratoconus be cured permanently?

Most patients undergoing C3R have a stable Keratoconus.

Is Keratoconus serious?

It is a sight threatening condition that warrants timely treatment as it is known to progress with time.

Can Keratoconus go away on its own?

Keratoconus cannot go away on its own. However, in the patients above 32 years of age it may stabilize in its own.

Can Keratoconus patients wear glasses?

Yes. Keratoconus patients can wear glasses to gain optimal vision.

Does corneal transplant cure Keratoconus?

Yes, it does.

Is Keratoconus a disability?

Yes. Certain cases of Keratoconus may have visual disability.

Can laser eye surgery correct Keratoconus?

Laser surgery doesn’t correct Keratoconus. C3R halts Keratoconus progression.

Is Keratoconus rare?

Keratoconus is a fairly common disease seen amongst young population aging below 30 years. It is fairly common in patients having the habit of rubbing their eyes.

Of all the conditions prevailing human eye, Glaucoma is the most threatening one. It is also known by the name of ‘Kala Motia’ or as ‘a silent thief of vision’ due to its painless nature. Clinically, it is a slowly manifesting disease distinguished by acute damage of optic nerves caused due to retinal ganglion cell loss.

Common symptoms to look out for here are -

[description] =>
  • Slow degradation of the side vision
  • Headaches accompanied by the redness & pain in eyes
  • Rapidly changing glass prescription
  • Reduced vision in low light conditions or at night
  • Seeing colourful halo rings around bulbs
  • Pain around eyes after coming into the light from darkness

Anyone can have this disease, however, few people are more susceptible to it. They are the ones -

  • Aged above 40 years
  • With hypertension, migraine or diabetes
  • Having myopia (nearsightedness) of open-angle type or hyperopia (farsightedness) of close angle type
  • Having glaucoma family history

Types of Glaucoma

This malady is of 7 different types.

Primary Open Angle Glaucoma (POAG)

Primary Open Angle Glaucoma is a chronic disorder that needs lifelong monitoring as well as medicines for maximum control. There are no associated early stage symptoms to identify or diagnose POAG in patients. Few of them notice patchy area vision loss, delayed adjustment of eyes to dim lighting condition or something as vague as a minor headache. It is only through proper IOP evaluation by an eye specialist can diagnose it. Based on the findings, doctors recommend more tests to become sure about the diagnosis.

Angle Closure Glaucoma

It occurs in cases where the eye filtration angle is closed or narrow, resulting in blockage of aqueous outflow plus elevated IOP. This may be either primary or secondary to systemic or ocular causes.

Amongst the Indian population, Primary Angle Closure Glaucoma (PACG) is pretty common. Symptoms include nausea/vomiting, episodic eye ache, seeing coloured halos, redness in the eye, blurred vision, and a general feeling of heaviness in the body. Elevated IOP and shallowness in the anterior chamber can be diagnosed upon examination.

Secondary Glaucoma

Glaucoma concerning other systemic or ocular cases is known as Secondary Glaucoma. Based on the position of obstruction with respect to trabecular meshwork, it is further divided into three sub categories:

  • Pre-trabecular
  • Trabecular
  • Post-trabecular

Pigmentary Glaucoma

This glaucoma is generally diagnosed in the eyes of young male patients accelerated many-a-times due to exercise. In this case, the iris rubs against zonules and releases pigment that subsequently blocks trabecular meshwork.

Pseudoexfoliative Glaucoma

Pseudoexfoliative Glaucoma can be related to zonal weakness and cataract. That is why it needs extra precaution at the time of surgery. Scientifically speaking, it is caused by amyloid-like white fibrillary substance deposition at trabecular meshwork that in turn clogs angles and elevates IOP.

Steroid-Induced Glaucoma

Typically seen in steroid sensitive (responders) people using systemic or topical steroids, it arises within weeks of usage. Risk factors further elevating the situation here are glaucoma family history, diabetes and myopia. Treatment encompasses shifting to medication of non-steroidal nature. Monitoring and caution are needed in future too.

Traumatic Glaucoma

Any eye trauma that damages angle structure by scarring it, can cause this glaucoma. In these cases, treatment is very difficult. First medication is tried and if it fails, surgery remains the only option.

Glaucoma Treatment at Centre for Sight

The damage done by Glaucoma cannot be reversed, however, timely intervention can prevent further progress of this malady. The Glaucoma treatment at Centre for Sight aims to preserve the remaining vision of the suffering patient by lowering IOP so that no more damage can take place. Three approaches taken by the specialists at Centre for Sight to achieve it are - Medication, Laser & Surgery.

Medication

If manageable by medicines, the specialists prescribe eye drops, syrups and injections to the patients to manage the condition.

Laser

Different laser procedures are performed to contain different situations of Glaucoma. Depending on the type of Glaucoma, the specialists choose the best-suited one for the patient. Four laser procedures are as follows:

  • Peripheral Iridotomy (PI)
  • This laser procedure is suggested to the patients diagnosed with closed or narrow angles to treat or prevent pupillary block glaucoma. The release of pigment accompanied by a gush of aqueous indicates completion of the procedure. After the operation, the patient may be recommended topical steroids. Probable complications, in this case, are elevated IOP, iritis, lens damage, corneal endothelial damage and iris bleeding.

  • Laser Trabeculoplasty
  • As the supplementary procedures to lower a patient’s IOP who is suffering from open-angle glaucoma, Argon Laser Trabeculoplasty (ALT) and Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) have gained popularity in recent years.

  • Transscleral Diode Cyclophotocoagulation
  • This laser surgery reduces aqueous production by the usage of a contact diode probe. The patients with poor vision potential and who have been unresponsive to medication plus deemed unfit for surgery are treated with this procedure.

  • Laser Suture Lysis
  • During the postoperative stage, the selective suture-lysis is done using diode or argon laser to improve aqueous outflow and control any possible IOP spike.

Surgery

Surgeries here are treated as last resort after a patient fails to respond to medication or lasers. Trabeculectomy surgery aims at providing the aqueous flow an alternative drainage channel to lower IOP. And if it fails too, doctors suggest taking the route of glaucoma drainage device. A bio-compatible drainage implant is placed in eye, which allows the draining of aqueous.

FAQs

What are early signs of Glaucoma?

Glaucoma is a silent disease. Most people will not have any significant symptoms. Occasionally someone may feel vague eye ache especially in the evening and in dim light conditions. Other symptoms include redness, watering, coloured halos around light and blurring of vision.

Can Glaucoma be cured completely?

Glaucoma can be controlled but not cured. Just like many other chronic diseases, we can prevent glaucoma from progressing further with medicines, lasers or surgery but it needs regular monitoring.

What should glaucoma patients avoid?

Glaucoma patients should avoid taking steroids in any form and if needed, must inform their doctor that they have glaucoma. Self-medication should be avoided at any cost. In addition, avoid excessive tea or coffee intake. Avoid consuming large quantities of water/fluids in one go.

Is coffee bad for glaucoma?

Excessive coffee (more than 2-3 cups a day) is associated with elevated eye pressure and is best avoided.

How to get rid of eye pressure?

You need to get yourself examined by an eye specialist, who will perform a couple of tests to measure the eye pressure and check if it is elevated. Depending on the measurements, he/she might recommend few eye tests followed by appropriate treatment.

Can you reverse glaucoma?

Glaucoma cannot be reversed but further damage can be stopped. Only in some cases like children, an early intervention may sometimes reverse the damage and restore an improved visual field or optic nerve function.

Beware of Glaucoma – A Silent Thief of Vision

Glaucoma or ‘Kala Motia’ is a condition wherein an increased intraocular pressure damages the optic nerve thereby affecting vision. Glaucoma is a disease of the eye that slowly and painlessly takes away your sight. That’s the reason it is called ‘Silent Thief of Sight’.

There is no proven way to cure glaucoma or reverse loss of vision which has already been affected. Regular eye examination is the key to help detect this disease in early stages and preserve healthy vision.

At Centre for Sight, with our team of super specialists and advanced state-of-the-art equipment we are fully geared not only to detect early stages of Glaucoma but also its treatment and surgical management.

Since most people with glaucoma have no early symptoms or pain, it is important to see your eye doctor regularly so that it can be diagnosed early and glaucoma treatment can be done and an irreversible sight loss can be prevented. If you are over 40 years of age and have a family history of glaucoma, you should have a complete eye exam with an eye doctor at a glaucoma treatment hospital after every one to two years. For people in need of the latest glaucoma treatment, we have our centres spread across the country in cities like Delhi, Gurgaon, Hyderabad, Indore, and Jaipur etc. where you can avail the latest glaucoma services.

A fluid known as aqueous nourishes the front part of the eye. In the normal eye, the rate of production of aqueous matches the rate of its drainage, thereby maintaining optimal pressure inside the eye. With age, disease, trauma or other factors, the channels carrying this fluid may get blocked, increasing the pressure inside the eye. This increased pressure damages the optic nerve, which is the conduit of visual messages to the brain. Working silently, glaucoma damages the outer or peripheral vision first while maintaining the central vision and if not treated on time it may lead to loss of central vision and blindness.

Glaucoma is also called the silent thief of sight because in the early stages of the disease, there may be no symptoms. By the time glaucoma is detected, the patient has already suffered extensive peripheral vision damage which can no longer be restored. The statistics reveal that by the time people realize that something is amiss and consult a doctor for glaucoma treatment, 90% of them have lost half of their vision. It comes so slowly that it goes unnoticed in most of the people. Worldwide, it is the leading cause of irreversible blindness.

Early detection is the key to preserve vision. Once detected, glaucoma can be controlled by medicines (eye drops) or surgery to prevent further vision loss. This can only be done through disciplined and regular glaucoma treatment from an eye specialist. Treatment of Glaucoma is life-long. Glaucoma treatment may include medical management, surgical management or management by lasers.

At Centre for Sight, with our team of super specialists and advanced state-of-the-art equipment we are fully geared not only to detect early stages of Glaucoma but also its treatment and surgical management.

Recent Advances in Glaucoma Management

In recent times, there have been a number of advancements in glaucoma management. In the investigational aspect, we now have more sophisticated machines which are able to detect Glaucoma at a very early stage, when no damage to the fibers of the eyes has occurred and this helps in starting the glaucoma treatment on time thereby actually preventing the onset of any possible damage to the eye.

The availability of superior anti glaucoma eye drops has also helped a lot. Newer formulations in medications have also been introduced lately thereby creating wider choice of treatment options for the ophthalmologist.

Management of glaucoma by lasers has also seen ushering in of newer technology where acute angle closure can be promptly dealt with, even when the conventional technique of making a hole by YAG laser does not yield desired results. Apart from the above breakthroughs, at Centre for Sight we also possess a number of new techniques in glaucoma surgery like planting the glaucoma filtration device (for controlled filtration), new kind of valves and use of sophisticated vitreoretinal techniques to help in conducting complicated glaucoma procedures which make Centre for Sight the preferred destination for best glaucoma treatment in Delhi.

The introduction of sophisticated techniques for glaucoma treatment provides tremendous hope for the future of comprehensive medical and surgical management of glaucoma. Centre for Sight has a panel of experienced glaucoma specialists specializing in and providing advanced glaucoma treatment in Delhi.

The goal of glaucoma treatment is to lower pressure in the eye thereby reducing the damage to the optic nerve. To treat your condition, doctor may choose to either lower the eye pressure through medicated eye drops, or improve drainage of fluid in the eye or lower the amount of the fluid produced in the eye. With a panel of experienced glaucoma specialists, Centre for Sight is a destination for treatment of glaucoma in Delhi and India.

A paediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the care of young children, and a specialist who treats young kids with eye-related problems is called pediatric ophthalmologist. Subsequently, the respective medical field is called Paediatric Ophthalmology. The need for a special branch of ophthalmology for children arises due to the fact that their needs regarding eye care are different from that of adults. They are still growing and have not settled on any stage of development, their visual disorders are different and have evolving eye-to-brain coordination. All of these reasons demand an extra emphasis on their requirements.

It is crucial to be attentive to children’s eye care when their eye-brain connections are still developing and strengthening. Any problem at this stage has the potential of permanently hindering their future visual capabilities. Different disorders and anomalies can cause various types of problems including the need for prescription eyewear, change in dietary habits, to development of a Squint or misalignment of eyes. It is better to prevent all these problems before they mature into full-blown visual damage, or identify and tackle the symptoms early on.

[description] =>

Here are some of the most widely recognized and common symptoms observed in children who experience difficulties related to eyes, vision and the functioning of their sensory system in regards to sight:

One easily noticeable symptom is when kids start to have difficulties in reading what is written on blackboards in school and sometimes even have trouble writing something in their notebooks.

Overtly, it is easy to recognize a physical symptom such as misalignment of the eyes, a Squint in the eyes, drooping eyelids or any other physical deformity around the eyes that look like they affect the vision.

Children often feel much more discomfort as compared to adults who have a higher tolerance for pain or irritation. Any signs of frequent headaches along with watery & red eyes, recurring inflammation or irritation in the eyes, should not be dismissed easily.

Easy susceptibility to different types of eye infections is also a very clear indicator that a more detailed eye check-up is required for the child.

Like it is the case with many other disorders, some of the disorders regarding the sense of sight are also hereditary in nature. If one has a family history of eye-related disorders or is in need of corrective glasses, it is entirely possible that the same problems may manifest in children.

Squint

A squint or strabismus often develops in young kids when the eye muscles don’t work properly to move the eyes in a parallel manner. Commonly understood as cross-eyed, the image perceived by the squint eye is ignored by the brain which leads to a condition called Amblyopia (Lazy Eye) in children.
While strabismus in adults can be cured, it does not go away on its own in children. Treatment to improve the balance of eye muscles and to improve squint should be taken as soon as possible.

Treatments

Centre for Sight has a great Paediatric Ophthalmology team and provides treatment like strabismus surgery with the best of the facilities. Depending upon the type of strabismus, correct consultation and care are suggested for patients.

From cosmesis to cancer. Cover it all.

Eye Cancer is a life-altering disease – it not just can potentially wipe out the vision but also can endanger the eye and the life. Every year, about 10,000 new eye cancer cases are diagnosed in India, 70 - 80% in adults and 20 – 30% in children. About 1500 children are diagnosed with retinoblastoma each year in India.

Upon early detection, complete cure is possible with appropriate treatment. A few decades ago, retinoblastoma was considered to be uniformly fatal, while the current management strategy is able to save life in over 95% of children, salvage the eye in 90% and save vision in 85%.

Centre for Sight offers contemporary and cost-effective approaches to preventing, diagnosing, and treating cancers of the eye, accessible to all. Our aim is to establish a new benchmark in the comprehensive care of eye cancers.

Neuro-Ophthalmology is a speciality born when the branches of ophthalmology and neurology merge. This field deals with vision-related problems caused by any diseases or disorder of the nervous system. Since we use a significant portion of our brain for activities related to our sense of sight, not all optic problems come from the eyes. These problems affect not only the vision but also eye movement, alignment and pupil reflexes.

The need for a neuro-ophthalmologist can be considered after a full eye examination where no fault of the eye itself is found. The symptoms for such cases often indicate to optic nerve disease or damage, which is causing an issue in the visual pathway. There can be many other symptoms that can be flagged and referred to a neuro-ophthalmologist.

[description] =>

While ailments related to neuro-ophthalmology are not always very serious, they have the potential to be permanently damaging or even fatal if not treated in time. Sometimes these problems limit themselves to the nervous system through the optic nerve, other times, relate to general medical conditions. Whatever the causes may be, all these manifest as some problem regarding the sense of sight.

The most common of these symptoms that could point towards a neuro-ophthalmological problem are:

  • A sudden diminishing of sight and in worse cases, even total loss of sight
  • A sudden eye stroke (loss of vision called transient ischemic attack)
  • Visual hallucinations, where patients see things, shapes or silhouettes where there are none
  • Diplopia (Double vision)
  • Intractable headaches without any seeming cause or plausible reason
  • Abnormalities of the pupil (slow reaction, the difference in size of the pupils)
  • Difficulties in identifying colours or differentiating between them
  • Inability to tolerate bright light and often getting momentary blindness or headaches because of it
  • Defects in the field of vision
  • Adult life onset of squint or strabismus

To identify the above symptoms and subsequently treat the cause of them can only be done by someone specially trained for it, a neuro-ophthalmologist. Centre For Sight is in possession of an excellent team of experts to diagnose and treat such diseases and disorders. The most commonly occurring of these type which needs a neuro-ophthalmologist to treat them are :

Optic Neuritis

It is an inflammation of the optic nerve which causes damage to it and hinders proper functioning, thus resulting in temporary vision loss in the eye that is connected to the damaged nerve. It also leads to constant pain in that eye. Optic neuritis causes vision loss as it blocks the sensory data that flows between eyes and the brain. In a more severe case, the symptoms may also include loss of visual field, colours and even sensation of flashing lights.

Optic Neuropathy

Any damage to the optic nerve that causes the death of neurons or nerve cells in it comes under the category of optic neuropathy. The most noticeable symptom is sudden onset of loss of vision. Accompanying it is the gradual fading out of colours from vision. As more cells die, it becomes even more damaging and ultimately results in total loss of sight.

Optic Disc Edema

Also known as Papilledema, is actually swelling of the optic disc due to mounting intracranial pressure. The cause of the rise in pressure, whether unilateral or bilateral, can be many and may not always be identified at once. Too much swelling without timely treatment can lead to permanent blindness or even prove to be life-threatening.

Ocular Myasthenia Gravis

In simple terms, this means that the ocular muscles or muscles that regulate the movement of eyes and control the eyelids get tired easily and are not up to the task at all times. This causes a physical barrier in the form of the eyelid itself in the patient’s vision. The other symptoms include double vision, muscle ache and overall poor vision.

A brain tumour affecting vision

A tumour in the general area of the optic nerve can have quite adverse effects on vision. Similarly, a brain tumour affects many of brains parts from where the motor and sensory functions of the body are performed. Since this is the control unit of the body, all symptoms of neuro-ophthalmological problems can be caused due to an unfortunate tumour in the brain; double vision, reduced field of vision, headaches, abnormal eye or pupil movements etc.

Pseudotumor Cerebri

As the name suggests, it is the sensation and symptoms of a tumour without there actually being a real brain tumour present. Excessive pressure on the brain can cause this and similar to the ill effects of a brain tumour on vision, in this case, vision suffers too. Sometimes it can be difficult to differentiate a false tumour from a real one in the initial diagnosis but further screening and testing are helpful.

Other Common Disorders

Some other common problems are due to eye movement disorders, pupil disorders and even Thyroid Eye Disease. Out of these, the Thyroid Eye Disease is an autoimmune disease this can result in bulging eyes, retraction of eyelids, double vision, reduced sight, and irritation around/in the eye.

Outside of these well-known causes of visual difficulties of neuro-ophthalmologic nature, unexplained loss of vision and headaches can also be a cause of concern that deserves the proper attention of expert doctors. At Centre For Sight, the neuro-ophthalmologists often work in tandem with expert neurosurgeons, neurologists and radiologists to provide the best care and state of the art treatment to the patients.

This department is outfitted with the most advanced and modern infrastructure which helps in the diagnosis of many complicated neuro-ophthalmic conditions. Some of these facilities are listed here:

  • Optical coherence tomography
  • Electrodiagnostics – VEP, ERG, MFERG, MFVEP
  • Humphrey visual field analyzer
  • Fundus photography and autofluorescence
  • Evaluation of the eye movements and ocular alignment
  • Neuro-optometry clinic

This department is also known for its active participation in the publishing of papers, research for the same and is an authority in the subject.

Treatment for all the above-stated neuro-ophthalmology problems can be sought at the Delhi, Gurgaon, Hyderabad, Indore, Jaipur, Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Agra, Meerut and Moradabad branch of Centre for Sight.

FAQs

Understanding Keratoconus.

The cornea is the clear curved layer at the front of the eye. The precise shape of the cornea allows it to act as a lens, projecting an image into the eye. Sometimes the cornea is not strong enough to hold this round shape and it bulges outwards like a cone. This condition is called Keratoconus and it results in significant vision impairment.

Symptoms usually start to occur in people who are in their late teens and early 20s. The treatment plan for Keratoconus has two aspects, first to stop its progression and second is to look at the refractive error and provide aid to improve the impaired vision. Severe cases may require corneal transplant.

Centre for Sight has the latest technology and experienced cornea specialists for treatment of Keratoconus.

[description] =>

The word Keratoconus is formed by two Greek words: kerato, meaning cornea, and konus, meaning cone. Keratoconus is a condition in which the shape of the cornea, which is usually round, is distorted, developing a cone-shaped bulge, resulting in decreased or distorted vision. The condition is mostly bilateral and asymmetric – meaning that it usually affects both eyes; however one eye may be more affected than the other. Keratoconus is an inherited condition that sometimes skips generations. Its onset is usually during puberty and is often related to allergies (hay fever, asthma and eczema). The cornea is a bit more elastic than normal and tends to alter in shape and thins out becoming cone shaped. Rubbing the eyes can aggravate the condition. The typical patient with undiagnosed keratoconus complains of deteriorating vision and frequent change in glasses. They may often report multiple images or ghosting of images and often relate a history of frequent refractive correction changes without much improvement in visual acuity. Patients may also report irritating symptoms such as intolerance to light (glare), photophobia and a recurrent foreign body sensation. Our centres are equipped with the latest corneal topography systems (Pentacam, Orbscan) to help in early detection and monitoring of keratoconus. Centre for Sight offers keratoconus treatment and the entire spectrum of treatment modalities – Corneal collagen crosslinking, intrastromal ring segments, implantable collamer lenses (ICL) and corneal transplantation.

Donate your Eyes. Light A Life

If the cornea (the clear tissue covering the front of the eye) becomes cloudy from disease, injury, infection or poor nutrition, vision is dramatically reduced or lost. Corneal blindness can be treated by replacing the damaged cornea with a healthy donated human cornea. The human cornea can be produced only through Eye donation. Corneal blindness affects mainly children and young adults who have a long life ahead of them.

Though India has highly qualified surgeons and hospital facilities to do the transplant, we do not have enough eye tissues available to do the surgery. Approximately 11 lakh blind population of our country are waiting for corneal transplantation and about 25,000 new cases are being reported every year. One eye donation can give sight to two corneal blind persons.

We have joined the crusade against corneal blindness by setting up Centre for Sight Eye Bank to encourage eye donations by bringing about a change in mindsets of people. With the support of our patrons and patients, we seek to bring light into the lives of those suffering from corneal blindness.

We have joined the crusade against corneal blindness by setting up Centre for Sight Eye Bank at Preet Vihar, Delhi to encourage eye donations by bringing about a change in mindsets. With the support of our patrons and patients, we seek to bring light into the lives of those suffering from corneal blindness.

Eye donation is an act of donating one’s eyes after his/her death. Only corneal blind persons can be benefitted through this process. It is an act of charity, purely for the benefit of the society and is totally voluntary.

Getting Rid of Computer related Eye Strain

Do you spend more than 2 hours in a day working on a computer? Do your eyes feel tired in the evening after working on a computer screen? Do you occasionally suffer from blurred vision or stiff neck and shoulder pains? If your answer is yes to any of the two questions, you are not alone. Like million others, you too may be suffering from the Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) or eye strain.

Centre for Sight offers end-to-end treatment for addressing the problem of CVS starting from detection, evaluation and its management which is unique as per each individual’s need. A detailed clinical evaluation, and understanding of the job and work environment of each individual needs to be taken into account before starting the treatment.

[description] =>

Computer vision syndrome or CVS is the straining of the eyes which occurs when a person uses computer/laptop for continuous and prolonged periods of time. It is usually a temporary discomfort which fades away on its own, however if the discomfort continues to linger or worsens, one needs to follow simple day to day practices to minimize it. More than half of the people who work on computers have at least some symptoms related to eye strain problems. Nowadays even children are suffering through these issues due to continuous usage of video games, mobile phones and television.

What causes Computer Vision Syndrome?

Less of blinking:

Blinking is the natural reflex of eyes to keep it moist. When you work on computers you blink less than the normal. The normal blink rate in human eyes is 16–20 per minute. Studies have shown that the blink rate decreases to as low as 6–8 blinks/minute for persons working on the computer screen. Obviously, this causes dry eyes.

Visual problems:

People who are already nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism are more likely to develop computer vision syndrome. Multi-focal lenses make it even more difficult because the screen is higher and further away from the zones meant for distance & near.

Computer glare and reflection:

Glare from surrounding lamps and lights can also lead to eyestrain.

Improper workstation design:

One of the most common problems in workstation set-up is that the monitor of the computer is placed too high. The top of the screen should be at eye level. This is because the ideal gaze angle is 10 to 20 degrees below the eye. A screen that is too high can lead to dry, irritated eyes as you blink less frequently. It also causes headaches, neck and upper back pain because the head is tilted towards the back to see the screen.

Dry environment and dehydration:

Air conditioners strip the air of its moisture. Dehydration when combined with dryness can worsen dry eyes thereby making you prone to Computer Vision Syndrome.

When you strain to read something new at your work desk and have to do it in a tight deadline, the mind can become stressed and agitated. Stress affects the whole upper body – the arms, shoulders, neck and head. This explains why reading at work can be so draining and exhausting, but then you can go home and watch television for 3 hours or sink into your favorite chair with a magazine. Mental states can interfere with normal vision.

How to avoid Computer Vision Syndrome?

  1. Use proper lighting. Put shades and drapes on windows to avoid bright light coming from outside, when you are working on a computer.
  2. Adjust the brightness of your computer screen. Closely match the brightness of the environment with that of your computer screen, by using the buttons on the monitor.
  3. Reduce glare. Install an anti-glare screen on your monitor. Again, when outside light cannot be reduced, use a computer hood. Have an anti-reflective coating applied to your glasses. This will prevent glare and reflections on the backside of your lenses from reaching your eyes.
  4. Take frequent breaks. Avoid working on computer screen for long hours. Do phone calls, or get up for a glass of water, chat with a colleague to relieve eye strain.
  5. Follow 20-20-20 rule. Take a 20 second break and look 20 feet away every 20 minutes. This exercise will help you prevent strained near vision and stretch your focusing muscles.
  6. Remember to blink as it rewets the eyes.
  7. Exercise even when sitting. Anyone in a sedentary job, especially those using computers, should stand up, move about, or exercise their arms, legs, back, neck, and shoulders frequently.

While these measures will resolve Computer Vision Syndrome, in many cases it is recommended to visit an eye specialist for consultation whenever the above symptoms are observed.
