Laser assisted In-situ Keratomileusis, is a laser assisted vision correction surgery performed in cases of myopia, hypermetropia and astigmatism. It is a type of refractive surgery and provides a permanent alternative to eyeglasses or contact lenses. It is performed after proper assessment of the cornea to rule conditions, which can affect the recovery post surgery.
Cataract, using Latest Types of Lenses
Cataract is mainly identified as clouding in the interior part of eye, which decrease vision. This clouding is also called opacification and is mainly related to ageing but other causes as well such as trauma, radiations, genetics, skin diseases, medication use, smoking, alcohol, diabetes mellitus etc. The patient mainly is not able to differentiate between colors, changing contrasts, reading, coping with glare from bright lights. To relieve the patient a surgery is done to remove the opacified natural lens of the eye and replace it with an artificial lens to give you a better vision all life long.The treatment provided can be done with use of different types of lenses such as monofocal (Equal power in all region of lens), Toric lens (Lens has more power in one area to correct astigmatism and lesser in other to correct distance vision) and multifocal lens (Multiple regions on the lens with different powers covering all aspects of vision correction).
Trabeculectomy, Filtration Surgery
The intraocular pressure should be manintained at a certain pressure otherwise it can lead to retina detachment and pressure on veins and arteries. Trabeculectomy is a procedure done to relieve the intraocular pressure by removing a part of the trabecular mesh in the eye through surgery. This is performed with utmost care to prevent postoperative complications such as blisters etc.
A condition in which a benign growth which commonly arises from the nasal side of the sclera in the palpebral fissure of conjunctiva.

If the disease worsens and the conjunctiva is removed, it can be treated by auto grafting techniques.
It is a condition that damages the eye’s optic nerve and is often associated with an increase buildup of intraocular pressure in the eye. It may present as vision loss, redness in the eye, seeing halos around lights, narrowing or tunnel vision etc. The typical surgeries performed are aimed to remove the cause affecting the nerve and improve the vision. The use of argon or selective laser technology, which is used to create a hole in the iris, which allows the fluid to flow out of the eye. Another treatment of choice includes microsurgery which minimally allow relief of pressure and shorter post-surgery recovery time.
Corneal Transplant using Femto Lasers
Cornea is the major part of the eye that is involved in vision. They can be either damaged due to trauma, thickening, thinning or with age and time. The new corneaare procured from donors either in the same country or other countries.
