Cataract Surgery (Adult)

  • Small Incision Cataract Surgery (SICS) Fishhook Technique - Click here to Video
    The cataract is removed manually through a small, self-sealing incision using a specially designed hook and an intraocular lens implanted. The small incision heals fast, allowing quick visual recovery.
  • Phacoemulsification - Click here to Video1 and Click here to Video2
    The cataract is fragmented and emulsified using ultrasonic vibrations and aspirated. This requires only a very small incision, through which a foldable intraocular lens is inserted. This is the most advanced technique of cataract removal and allows faster and safer healing and visual recovery.

Vitreo-Retinal Surgeries

Common Indication

Diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachment, bleeding within the vitreous cavity, macular hole, dislocated lens.

Retinal Detachment Surgery – Scleral buckle

This treatment involves placing a flexible band or silicone sponge (scleral buckle) around the eye to counteract the force pulling the retina out of place. It is often combined with draining the fluid under the detached retina, allowing the retina to settle back into its normal position against the back wall of the eye. Cryocoagulation is applied at the retinal tear.

Vitrectomy Surgery (PPV)

In a vitrectomy the vitreous gel, which is pulling on the retina and / or contains blood, is removed from the eye. Different forms of replacements are applied, like gas or silicone oil. The body’s own fluids will gradually replace a gas bubble. In case of oil a later surgical removal is needed.

  • Surgery: Patient has to get the date for surgery and get admitted one day before surgery.
  • Hospital stay: Most patients two days after surgery
  • Discharge: On the second post-operative day
  • Post-operative medicines are given
  • Counselling: Special instructions on positioning after surgery is given (like face down, left side, right side) which should be followed strictly.
  • Patients need to return for 1st follow-up: 2 weeks after surgery
