“Ptosis” means drooping. When the upper eyelid droops, it is called blepharoptosis, or upper eyelid ptosis.
There are several reasons an eyelid might droop. Some babies are born with ptosis in one or both eyelids. These children must have a thorough eyelid examination. Ptosis can occur later in life if the muscles or ligaments that normally raise the eyelid are weakened by injury or disease. Sometimes the drooping is a result of damage to the nerves that control the eyelid muscles.Read More
A pterygium is a growth of the conjunctiva or mucous membrane that covers the white part of your eye over the cornea. The cornea is the clear front covering of the eye. This benign or noncancerous growth is often shaped like a wedge.
A pterygium usually doesn’t cause problems or require treatment, but it can be removed if it interferes with your vision.
The exact cause of pterygium isn’t known. One explanation is that too much exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light can lead to these growths.Read More
LASIK is one of the most trusted laser eye surgeries for the treatment lasikasaof Myopia (near-sightedness), Hyperopia (far-sightedness), and Astigmatism (blurred vision). This laser vision correction technique is performed on the cornea so that light entering the eye can be focused on the retina for clearer vision. LASIK will completely eliminate your dependence on spectacles or contact lenses in a short 15 minute surgery.
What Is Custom Lasik?
Custom LASIK is a procedure that involves the use of a wavefront analyzer which helps the surgeon to customize the LASIK procedure to every individual eye.Customized procedure enables a person to see clearer and shaper than before and thus improves the quality of vision.
Glaucoma is a condition where the intra-ocular pressure of the eye is sufficiently high to cause damage to the optic nerve. Blindness from glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness, common in adults over the age of forty. It can be prevented if the condition is diagnosed at an early stage.
In a normal eye, a clear transparent fluid called ‘aqueous humor’ is secreted and continuously drained out via microscopic channels inside the eye and then into the blood vessels. If these vessels are blocked due to any reason, the fluid starts accumulating within the eye and pressure starts building up. If this pressure is not controlled, it causes damage to the optic nerve of the eye, leading to blindness.Read More
The retina is the delicate tissue lining the back of the inside of the eye which detects light and allows us to see. Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP) is an eye condition which affects the blood vessels of the retina. The white oval in the centre is the optic nerve and the dark area towards the right of it is known as the macula.
The macula is the part of the eye that allows us to see fine detail. The grey lines are the arteries and the black lines are the veins. How common is ROP? ROP is common in premature babies, affecting about 65% babies less than 1251 gram birthweight.Read More
One of the most common problems after cataract surgery is clouding of the membrane around the lens. The membrane is referred to as the posterior capsule, and once the membrane becomes opacified, the condition is termed posterior capsule opacification. A cloudy posterior capsule causes blurry vision, but this condition can be treated easily and safely with a laser treatment in the office or outpatient center. Laser capsulotomy does not require going to the operating room and nor does it involve any incisions into the eye. It only takes a few minutes and is painless. Dilation of the eye is done with eye drops.
A laser removes the hazy posterior capsule from your line of sight without making an incision or touching the eye. Drops may be given after the procedure to reduce inflammation. Your vision will improve very quickly after the procedure. You do not have to alter your usual activities. The procedure is extremely safe.Read More
Retina Treatment Retina is like the film in a camera. When the focused light hits the retina, a picture is created and sent to the brain through the optic nerve (the nerve of the eye), thus giving us vision. Sometimes part of the retina either tears, pulls away or detaches from the back of the eye; when this occurs that part of the retina cannot gather light ans results in vision loss.
Dilating the Eyes – The first thing your eye doctor will do is dilate your eyes with drops that cause the pupil to widen.
Tonometry Test – Tonometry measures pressure inside the eye. This helps your ophthalmologist look for signs of glaucoma.Read More
Topical anesthesia is a satisfactory and safe alternative to retrobulbar and peribulbar anesthesia for clear corneal phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation in selected cataract patients in the hands of experienced cataract surgeon.
Childhood eye problems are common. Eyes that ‘wander’, vision problems, eye infections, and eye injuries are all common among children. You can help protect your child’s eyesight by watching out for warning signs and taking your child to a doctor at the first sign of a problem.
A pterygium is a growth of the conjunctiva or mucous membrane that covers the white part of your eye over the cornea. The cornea is the clear front covering of the eye. This benign or noncancerous growth is often shaped like a wedge. A pterygium usually doesn’t cause problems or require treatment, but it can be removed if it interferes with your vision.
The exact cause of pterygium isn’t known. One explanation is that too much exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light can lead to these growths. It occurs more often in people who live in warm climates and spend a lot of time outdoors in sunny or windy environments.Read More
Cornea is the first coat of eye which is transparent circular structure. Functionally it acts as a lens responsible for focusing rays inside the eye. It is an important optical structure through which rays of light enter the eye. Any damage or injury to this delicate structure can lead to permanent loss of corneal transparency or in other words cause clouding and opacification. Loss of corneal transparency prevents the entry of light rays into the eye and reduces vision. In cases of severe of damage, this can cause total loss of vision making the person visually handicapped. There are other conditions also such as malnutrition, Vitamin A deficiency, infection, certain corneal diseases such as ‘keratoconus’ and ‘corneal degeneration’, which can cause corneal blindness.Read More
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging test. OCT uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of your retina. With OCT, your ophthalmologist can see each of the retina’s distinctive layers. This allows your ophthalmologist to map and measure their thickness. These measurements help with diagnosis. They also provide treatment guidance for glaucoma and diseases of the retinaRead More
Dry eye syndrome is caused by a chronic lack of sufficient lubrication and moisture on the surface of the eye. Consequences of dry eyes range from subtle but constant eye irritation to significant inflammation and even scarring of the front surface of the eye. Dry eyes are very common, and dry eye syndrome is a major reason for visits to the eye doctor.

Functional endoscopic sinus surgery is the modern approach to surgery on the sinuses. In the past operations were designed to maximize drainage by gravity. As such large holes were fashioned into the sinuses and most of the lining tissue was removed. It is now known that this lining tissue plays a critical role in keeping sinuses healthy. As such the old-style surgery not infrequently worsened the problem.Read More
Perforations in the ear drum, a common problem among children, occur due to an infection or as a result of an injury. Drainage from the ear or bloody discharges are symptoms of a perforated ear. In such cases, an ENT specialist would probably recommend a microscopic ear surgery.One such common surgery of this kind is the Tympanoplasty, also called “eardrum repair”.Read More
Septoplasty is a common surgical procedure that is used in treating and correcting a Deviated septum,. A patient’s septum refers to a wall consisting of bone and cartilage that works to divide the nose into two completely separate spaces, or nostrils.Overall, a Deviated Septum happens if the septum gets displaced to either side of the nose. Most individuals that suffer from a deviated septum often have one nasal passage that is substantially smaller.Read More
An upper GI endoscopy or EGD (esophagogastroduodenoscopy) is a procedure to diagnose and treat problems in your upper GI (gastrointestinal) tract.The upper GI tract includes your food pipe (esophagus), stomach, and the first part of your small intestine (the duodenum).This procedure is done using a long, flexible tube called an endoscope. The tube has a tiny light and video camera on one end. The tube is put into your mouth and throat. Then it is slowly pushed through your esophagus and stomach, and into your duodenum.Read More
Foreign bodies can either be in the ear lobe or in the ear canal. Objects usually found in the ear lobe are earrings, either stuck in the lobe from infection or placed too deep during insertion. Foreign bodies in the ear canal can be anything a child can push into his or her ear. Some of the items that are commonly found in the ear canal include the following:Read More
Adenoids are similar to the tonsils. The adenoids are made up of lymph tissue and are located in the space above the soft roof of the mouth (nasopharynx) and cannot be seen by looking in your child's nose or throat. Adenoids also help to fight infections. Adenoids may cause problems if they become enlarged or infected.Adenoiditis is when the adenoids become inflamed from infection.Read More
