Treatment

Glaucoma: Although relatively uncommon in children, timely intervention can prevent lifelong blindness. Treatment includes specialised surgery, implants, oral medicines and eye drop therapy and periodic follow-up to prevent further deterioration.
Squint: following thorough evaluation, squints in children can be managed by either spectacles, patching or surgical intervention.
Tumours: Management of congenital tear duct obstruction and congenital anophthalmos or absence of ocular tissue.
Treatment for children also covers areas such as Refractive error, Childhood cataract, Amplyopia, Retinal disorders, Congenital anamolies, etc.

Types of surgery include:

Cataract Surgery - In the normal eye the lens inside is clear and transparent, but when cataract develops it becomes cloudy and opaque. So the light is not focused on the retina through lens which leads to blurring of vision.
Glaucoma Surgery - It is an eye disease that can cause loss of vision. Often called as “Sneak Thief Of Sight” , Glaucoma is deadly because there are no early warning signs. In fact, you may be suffering from Glaucoma but do not know it. By the time you experience some vision loss, an irreversible damage has already occurred.
Bladeless Lasik Surgery - No matter how ready you are for a life without spectacles or contact lenses, the decision to have Lasik is a big one. You want to know for sure that you are getting the safest, most trusted and most effective treatment.
