Oculoplasty & Ocular Oncology
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.
Comprehensive, evidence-based, experience-driven, and protocol-guided management of tumors of the eyelid, conjunctiva, intraocular structures and orbit has a focus at Centre for Sight Hyderabad, which has been conceived as the International Referral Centre for Ocular Oncology.
The facility is equipped with sophisticated computerized 3-D brachytherapy planning system, Ruthenium 106 plaque brachytherapy, thermocouple-driven cryotherapy, integrated low-morbidity day care chemotherapy unit; and access to sentinel node biopsy, sophisticated Novalis radiotherapy and Linear Accelerator with multi-energy photon and electron beam delivery, Image Guided Radiotherapy, Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy, 3-D Conformal Radiotherapy, PET-CT Guided Radiotherapy etc.
They Live and See
Facilities include day care child-friendly chemotherapy facility, plaque brachytherapy, large spot IO transpupillary thermotherapy, sophisticated cryosurgery suite, wide-field pediatric digital fundus photography and FFA for image-guided treatment, nanoparticle-based periocular chemotherapy, intravitreal chemotherapy, and access to blood bank, super selective intra-arterial chemotherapy, bone marrow transplantation and clinical genetics. Our public awareness campaigns will hopefully help in early diagnosis.
