Complete refractive solutions
Lasik is a surgical procedure for permanently removing the dependence on spectacles or contact lenses by correcting the vision. It corrects refractive errors and gives a sharper vision. Lasik surgery corrects refractive errors like nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), astigmatism, and presbyopia. Centre for Sight houses one of the best teams for Lasik and refractive specialists who work with state-of-the-art technology to provide patients with a spectacle-free and clear vision.
Moreover, we also perform SMILE laser eye surgery, which is a highly advanced technology of blade-free laser vision correction. The Small Incision Lenticule Extraction (SMILE) laser eye surgery comes with more precision compared to the most widely used, Femto-Lasik procedures. The surgery corrects myopia and also treats mild astigmatism with cylindrical power up to -0.5 only.
Personalized Lasik techniques such as Contoura use the excimer laser, unlike SMILE which works on the most advanced femtosecond laser platform.
Advantages of opting for SMILE procedure over the conventional Lasik treatment
- No corneal flap creation
- Less dry eyes
- Better corneal biomechanics
- Greater precision & stability
- Fully automated & quick
- Enhanced ability to see
- Clear vision in low light
Cataract eye surgery
Cataract implies the clouding of the natural lens in the eye which decreases the patient’s vision. This causes difficulties in performing daily activities like reading, driving or watching things from a distance. Centre for Sight, Dwarka is the most optimum place to get cataract surgery in Dwarka.
Following are the common reasons for the development of cataracts:
Aging:People older than 60 years of age are at the risk of getting cataracts
Exposure:An overexposure to UV rays may negatively affect the eyes, and cause cataracts
Drug-induced: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
Since there is no specific medication to cure cataracts, surgery is the only option available for cataract removal. Our eye hospital in Dwarka is well-equipped to offer an array of surgical options depending upon the severity of cataracts, and the current condition of the patients eyes.
Our team of eye specialists in Dwarka conducts different types of tests for cataract, including:
Biometry/ Intraocular Lens (IOL) workup: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 the cornea due to past LASIK/ PRK/ RK surgeries.
We care for your vision and dedicate state-of-the-art infrastructure, equipment, and service to cater to the needs of our patients. Our team of eye specialists in Dwarka centre conducts two types of surgeries for cataract removal:
Femto Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery (FLACS):The first 5 steps of this surgery are automated to reduce the time and energy required to conduct it. The incisions are blade-free, the capsulotomy is precise, and the cataract is considerably softer. With Femtosecond laser, cataract surgery is now more safe and accurate. Automating the most crucial steps in cataract surgery assures minimum pain & maximum accuracy, and also ensures a quick surgery & quicker recovery.
Our team of eye specialists in Dwarka also conducts robotic laser cataract surgery to help cataract patients regain a clearer vision.
Why go for Robotic Laser cataract surgery at Centre for Sight, Dwarka:
- Blade-Free cataract experience
- Working of the laser takes about 30-40 seconds only
- Greater precision and safety
- Critical steps of surgery are fully automated
- A better visual outcome with quicker recovery
Micro Incision Cataract Surgery (MICS):
In this method, a surgeon makes a 1.8mm to 2mm large incision to replace the natural lens with an artificial lens. The surgeon manually performs the procedure right from the incision to the breaking of the lens into smaller pieces for easing its removal. It is an incredibly delicate task that requires a lot of skills and is broadly marked by the following features:
- Requires a very small incision of about 2mm
- A cataract is emulsified into small pieces by phacoemulsification, and a foldable IOL is implanted
- Walk-in, Walk-out procedure
- Stitch less, bloodless, painless surgery
- Quick healing, and post-operative recovery

Treating retinoblastoma is a complex process as it demands the expertise of ocular oncologists, pediatric oncologists, and even radiation oncologists in some cases. Saving the patient’s life is the first goal of retinoblastoma treatment.
Our eye specialists in Dwarka offer the following treatment modalities for retinoblastoma:
This treatment involves killing the tumor cells by exposing them to extremely low temperatures. It is used for small, and peripheral retinal tumours.
Trans Pupillary Thermotherapy (TTT)
This treatment uses a low-level of heat generated by a diode laser to kill the tumour cells. It is commonly used to treat small tumours in the eye, and also as a supplement to chemotherapy for larger tumors.
Chemotherapy or the use of specific anti-cancer medicines is the preferred initial treatment for most cases of retinoblastoma these days. It is often supplemented with TTT Laser to provide a more holistic treatment to the patient. Chemotherapy is mostly given by intravenous route, but may need to be given directly into the ophthalmic artery (Intra-Arterial chemotherapy) or injected directly into the eye (Intravitreal chemotherapy) in certain specific situations.
Surgery involves the removal of the affected eye (Enucleation). This is sometimes required if the patient is at an advanced stage and other treatment methods are not likely to be successful. Even though families find it difficult to accept the removal of an eye as the final treatment method, modern surgical, and reconstructive techniques have made it possible to have a high quality of life even after the loss of an eye. Centre for Sight, has a state of the art facility to provide custom made artificial eye (ocular prosthesis) for patients who undergo eye removal.
Other treatment methods include plaque brachytherapy, the placement of a radioactive implant on the sclera to selectively deliver radiation with minimum collateral damage, and external beam radiotherapy, which is mostly used in Retinoblastoma cases with orbital involvement.
