Corneal Transplant Surgery India
The transplant procedure involves removing the diseased or damaged tissue, then replacing it with the donor tissue. The entire operation is done under a surgical microscope. After taking measurements of the amount of tissue to be removed, the diseased corneal is cut and lifted away from the eye with a special round tool that works much like a cookie cutter called a trephine. Once the damaged tissue is removed, the donor cornea is cut to a matching size and placed on the patient's eye. It is held in place with very fine stitches using suture material that is about as thin as a hair.
Refractive Eye Surgery India ď‚—
The shape of your eye determines how well your vision can focus. Light rays enter the eye through the clear cornea, then through the pupil and the lens. In a normal eye the light rays are focused onto the retina, a light-sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye. Signals from the retina are sent through the optic nerve to the brain, where they are interpreted as the images we see. Refractive errors exist because the curvature of the eye is mismatched to the length of the eye and light rays cannot focus properly on the retina. It is technically very complicated to change the length of the eye (although it has been attempted) so refractive surgery procedures either change the shape of the front surface or add a permanent lens to improve the focus.
Cataract Surgery India
Cataract is a clouding of the eye's lens - the part of the eye responsible for focusing light and producing clear, sharp images. A cataract occurs when the crystalline lens of the eye becomes cloudy or opaque as a result of age, illness, or trauma. This cloudiness can interfere with the eye’s natural ability to direct light and focus an image on the retina. As a result, individuals with cataracts frequently experience a loss of vision.
The most common cause of cataract is the deterioration of the normal structure within the lens of the eye with age. There may be other causes like diabetes, kidney disease, glaucoma, smoking, eye injuries, infection, and inflammation inside the eye. Prolonged use of certain medications can also lead to cataract formation
Common symptoms are blurry vision, colors that seem faded, glare, not being able to see well at night, double vision. frequent prescription changes in your eye wear.
