Ophthalmology

Apollo Clinic is among the India’s most advanced healthcare destinations for eye-related diseases, such as glaucoma, cataracts, cornea transplants, etc. Our doctors specialize in caring for patients with vision problems related to the nervous system, such as unequal pupil size, myasthenia graves, thyroid eye disease, abnormal eye movements, double vision, vision disturbance, transient vision loss, unexplained vision loss, and optic nerve problems.

Diagnosis

At Apollo Clinic, the diagnosis of the problem begins with a thorough examination as well as assimilation of genetic history coupled with medical history. It is followed by specific tests such as:

Subjective Refraction Determination: Using a reading table of letters, numbers and symbols displayed on a screen, the visual acuity of the eye is determined. If the visual acuity does not meet the required standards, corrections are made using corrective lenses placed in an individual frame.

Snellen’s Vision Chart: The Snellen vision chart is used to check if prescription lenses are needed to improve vision. During this screening, you will be asked to stand at a distance, cover one eye and read the letters on the chart, beginning from the top and working your way to the bottom.

Ishihara Colour Test: This is one of the most widely used colour blindness tests. The patient is expected to read a set of colour dotted plates, each showing a number or a path.

Treatment

After the diagnosis of the eye problem, the ophthalmologist will prescribe the most suitable treatment procedures that suit your medical history and condition.

An ophthalmologic disease can result in massive psychological stress, as well as neurotic trauma. This is where the Apollo Clinic can help in lending its support with health education as well as advanced care planning. In some cases where intensive care may be required, our medical practitioners recommend specific treatment procedures. These include conditions such as:

Cataract: Depending on the extent of the disorder, vision is corrected with prescription glasses or lenses.

Glaucoma: Once this disorder is detected, steps such as prescription eye drops, laser surgery or even microsurgery will is recommended to prevent the problem from progressing and leading to blindness.

Squint: Oculoplastic corrective surgery is often recommended in most cases.

Cornea: Dry eye management is recommended to prevent the eye from drying out, thus ensuring that the eye is well moisturised.

Neurophthalmology: Optic nerve disease evaluation and management is often recommended to prolong functionality. The other form of treatment includes diplopia management and electrophysiology.

At Apollo Clinic, we offer a tremendous range of consultation services for the evaluation of our patients with acute or chronic eye problems and ophthalmology diseases.
