Cataract & IOL Surgery
It is a cloudiness of the normally clear lens in the eye. It blocks light from reaching the retina and hence causes unclear vision. As the cataract advances, this cloudiness of vision increases over a period of time until the vision is completely impaired. The only solution is to remove the cloudy lens and implant a clear artificial intraocular lens in its place. This restores vision in a majority of patients.
Cornea is the outermost transparent layer of the eye.
Corneal blindness accounts for 0.52% of total blindness in the Indian subcontinent. The cornea can be the site of various disorders ranging from whitening of the cornea due to degenerations and dystrophies to abnormalities of corneal shape including Keratoconus. Treatment strategies for these disorders include Corneal Transplant surgery, Auto-grafting for Pterygium and Corneal Collagen Cross-linking with Riboflavin (C3R) for Keratoconus .
At Sri Sankaradeva Nethralaya, we have a dedicated team of cornea specialists committed to provide you with the best possible care to protect your vision.
It normally presents with irritation, grittiness
and foreign body sensation in the eye. It is caused by a wide
variety of conditions. Evaporative dry eye is commonly seen in
people who typically work more than 8 hours on computer screens.
Dry eye is also seen in people suffering from thyroid and joint
related disorders, as well as, in people using medication for
neurological disorders treatment.
Because there are so many different causes of dry eyes, your treatment will depend on your individual symptoms, and the cause of your condition. Most treatments involve either replacing tears, or reducing tear drainage.
Refractive Surgery (LASIK)
Myopia (Short sight) - Inability to see objects
that are at a distance (Nearby objects are visible but far away
objects are out of focus or difficult to see).
Hyperopia (Long Sight) - Inability to see objects that are close to the eye, however objects at a distance are easier to see.
Both these problems are commonly due to abnormalities in the length of the eyeball as well as the shape of the eye.
After the age of 18 when the power of your glasses remains stable for more than a year both these conditions can be corrected by LASIK surgery.
Retina & Vitreous
The Vitreoretinal Service at Sri Sankaradeva Nethralaya
offers expertise in the diagnostic, medical and surgical retina.
Diagnostics forming the backbone of every successful treatment,
we provide a very advanced small pupil fundus camera for Fundus
Fluorescein Angiography and a precise Optical Coherence Tomography
system. Treatment of all retinopathies affecting the eye due to
diabetes, hypertension, vascular malformations, and age-related
macular degeneration is possible with laser and anti-VEGF injections
or surgery depending on the requirement.
The retina laser service houses an advanced Argon-Laser System for Retinal Photocoagulation and also the Photo Dynamic Therapy laser system for treatment of Age-Related Macular Degeneration.

For Surgical treatment the department is equipped with the advanced Micro Incision Vitreous surgery system and with its team of expert surgeons caters to advanced retina surgery requirements including Retina Detachments, Ocular Trauma, Diabetic Micro Incision Vitreous surgery, Macular Hole surgery etc.
Glaucoma, otherwise known as Kala Motia is an eye disease in which there is an increase in pressure inside the eye. Just as some people have high blood pressure, in the same way, a glaucoma patient has high eye pressure.If the eye pressure remains high for a long time it damages the optic nerve which carries the light sense from the eye to the brain. This damage to the nerve is irreversible and leads to permanent and incurable blindness. That is why glaucoma is a dangerous disease of the eye and has been labeled as "lurking thief of vision".
& Ocular Inflammation
Uveitis is characterized by inflammation of the inner coats of the eye. Patients complain of pain, redness, and diminution of vision. Uveitis is often associated with diseases that affect the rest of the body. It is commonly associated with disorders such as Rheumatoid Arthritis and Sarcoidosis. Viral infections and Tuberculosis are also associated with Uveitis.
Orbit & Oculoplasty
The sub-specialty that deals with diseases of the eyelids and bones surrounding the eye. It includes treatment of tumors and eye cancer of the eyelid and other structures around the eye. Correction of eyelids that are drooping (ptosis), as well as injections of Botox for cosmetic corrections, are given by ocuplasty surgeons.
Our pediatric ophthalmologist provides the best diagnosis and treatment of various eye problems in children.
Squint & Orthoptics
Squint eye surgery is a treatment for detection & surgical correction of eye problems like squint, Strabismus & Amblyopia
Neuro - Ophthalmology
The Optic Nerve carries electrical impulses from the eye to the brain and enables us to see. Neuro Ophthalmology is the subspecialty that deals with disorders of the optic nerve. Common disorders include optic neuritis (inflammation and swelling of the optic nerve), Ischemic Optic neuropathies (Decreased blood supply to the optic nerve) and Traumatic optic neuropathy. Diagnosis of these disorders requires electrophysiological tests such as VEP/ERG and EOG.
