Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery involves the removal of the eye’s natural lens (which has become opaque and called cataract) with intraocular lens. Cataracts may lead to vision loss. Symptoms of cataract is experiencing strong light glare, and low visibility in low light conditions. The procedure is minimally invasive and patients can go back home the same day.

Corneal transplantation

Corneal transplantation or corneal grafting is performed when a diseased or damaged cornea is transplanted by donated ‘graft’ or corneal tissue. If the cornea is replaced completely then the process is known as penetration keratoplasty, and partial cornea replacement is called lamellar keratoplasty. The graft is obtained by a deceased individual who does not have any disease or factors which might affect the graft’s survival.

Glaucoma

The eye diseases which damage optic nerve and cause vision loss are collectively known as glaucoma. Open angle glaucoma is most common, and normal-tension and closed-angle glaucoma are less common types. If detected early, glaucoma can be treated with medication, surgery or laser treatment. Vision loss caused by glaucoma is permanent.
