We provide you the entire spectrum of intra ocular lenses from rigid lenses, three-piece foldable to single piece foldable to top of the line toric and multifocal lenses for the discerning patient.

Phacoemulsification

In this method a tiny instrument is inserted through a very small incision. The instrument uses ultrasound vibrations to break the cataract into fine pieces; these are then gently suctioned out. The new lens is then inserted into the eye. Usually no stitches are required to close the incision. This minimal surgery allows faster and safer healing, hastening your return to normal activity.

Micro Incision Cataract Surgery (MICS)

This is a technique where the cataract is removed manually through an incision small of about 1.8 mm to 2.2 mm.

Benefits
  • No stitches, No pain, No injection
  • Recovery time 2-3 days
  • Better Contrast & focus

Planning for Surgery

  • It is not necessary for the cataract to mature fully or for the vision to become totally cloudy before scheduling surgery. You and your ophthalmologist should jointly decide on the time for surgery.
  • At the hospital our counselors will help you understand the pre-operative procedures and obtain an estimate of the expenditure involved. Prior to your surgery, you will need to undergo some routine medical and blood tests. If you wear glasses or contact lenses, bring them so that your prescription can be checked.
  • The actual surgery lasts about 30 minutes. You will be relaxed and awake but feel no pain. The nerves in your eye will be completely numbed so you will not be able to see or move your eye.

Your doctor will select the method of surgery that is most suitable for your case
