Eyes are one of the most precious of God"s gifts to human beings. Almost 60% of the things we learn in life are based on our good eyesight. We see, we learn, we proceed in life. We are lucky to have good eyesight. But everyone is not that lucky.
In our world, 37 million people are blind. Every minute one person in our world goes blind. One child goes blind every five minutes. One in three blind in the world is an Indian. It is our personal, social, national and more important a moral responsibility to help in prevention and cure of blindness.
At Aditya Birla Memorial Hospital, we promise to be your partners in eye care. We are commited to provide the highest quality eye care based on evidence based approach and latest cutting edge technology for the society. We are providing services for all eye problems under one roof.
Cataract remains the most common cause of blindness.In this condition the lens in the eye becomes opaque leading to decreased vision. Another common problem is glare. Because of glare, people with cataracts may find it harder to see when there are bright lights on, such as when looking at the oncoming headlights of a car. Now a days surgery is a very safe and effective treatment option. Our hospital is well equipped with the latest Legacy Phacoemulsification Machine and highly experienced and skilled surgeons to provide the best outcome. The state of the art operation theatre and Zeiss Microscope adds on the quality. Surgery can ee done under topical anaesthesia with no need to patch the eye. There is no need to get admitted in the hospital either. Just walk in and walk out.
Glaucoma is an important cause of blindness. In this condition, the pressure inside the eye goes up damaging the delicate nerve fibers & ultimately the optic nerve resulting in visual field loss. Unfortunately glaucoma is typically associated with painless and progressive loss of vision that may escape detection by the patient. This once again stresses the importance of a thorough eye examination. The hospital is well equipped with glaucoma services like Humphrey Visual Field Testing Machine, Stereoscopic Digital Optic Disc Photographs, Applanation Tonometry, Gonioscopy and Laser Iridotomy.
Refractive Errors :
Refractive errors lead to visual impairment affecting the quality of the vision. It is especially critical to detect these in children. If untreated, this can lead to a lazy eye that may not be recovered in future. This again underscores the importance of regular eye check up for everyone specially children. This problem can easily be solved with glasses or contact lenses & now a days with laser treatment, if required.
Diabetic Retinopathy :
Diabetic retinopathy results from effects of the diabetes on blood vessels in the retina, the tissue that lines the inner eye. Diabetes causes retinal blood vessels to leak and grow abnormally causing visual loss, if untreated-blindness. Fortunately this blindness is avoidable. All you need to do is to have a regular eye examination to detect this condition at the earliest and treat it at the earliest. The hospital has excellent Diabetic Retinopathy Clinic well equipped with Zeiss Angiography System, Zeiss Nd-yag Laser, Alcon A&B Ultrasound Scan to help these patients.
Retina Surgery :
Retina surgery is considered to be the most complicated and challenging of the eye surgeries. Our operation theatre is equipped with Accurus Vitrectomy Machine & Zeiss Microscope with Biom and sophisticated instruments. This state of the art surgical set up is of immense help in treating these patients.
Beside this, we are also having exclusive eye clinics for cornea, paediatric ophthalmology, oculoplasty, uveitis, contact lenses & low vision aid. There is an optical shop within the hospital itself for your convenience.
