Cataract Services:

What is a Cataract?

The opacification of the native crystalline lens is known as a cataract. Age, extended sun exposure, diabetes, eye trauma, and chronic systemic steroid usage are the most common causes. The only available therapy for cataracts is surgery.

What is Cataract Surgery?

Cataract surgery aims at replacing the lens of your eye with an artificial lens. Generally, the lens of a healthy person is clear. However, cataracts cause this lens to become cloudy and thus affecting the vision. Cataract surgery is performed to help patients replace their cloudy lenses with a clear lens. This surgery is performed by an ophthalmologist on an outpatient basis. This means you do not have to stay in the hospital once the surgery is performed. Due to this, cataract surgery is a common type of surgery and is a safe procedure.

At KIMS Eye Care Centre, Phacoemulsification is performed to remove the opacified natural lens, and a foldable lens is inserted. Phacoemulsification is a no-stitch surgery performed under local/topical anesthesia, and the patient is discharged immediately.

There are multiple IOL (Intraocular Lenses) choices available for surgery, as outlined below:

  • Aberration-free Aspheric IOLs: These IOLs ensure good quality of vision and improve contrast sensitivity and night vision. They also filter harmful UV light/blue light, which harms the retina.
  • ToricIOLs: They correct pre-existing astigmatism, thereby reducing the need for using spectacles for distance vision postoperatively.
  • Multi-focal IOLs: They provide clear vision for all distances to lead a comfortable life.

What to expect from Cataract Surgery?

A week or so before the procedure, you may anticipate that your doctor will do a painless ultrasound. This ultrasound is carried on to learn about the size and shape of your eye. The size and shape of the eye determines the right type of lens that would be implanted, also known as the intraocular lens.

The intraocular lenses are meant to ameliorate the vision of the patient by focusing the light on the back of the eye. Since this lens requires no care, it will become a permanent part of your eye. As mentioned above, cataract surgery is an outpatient procedure and hence it will take approximately an hour to perform. Under this type of surgery, your doctor will firstly place drops in your eye. This is meant to dilate your pupil. Once done, you will receive local/topical anesthetics to numb the area. Then the surgeon will replace the clouded lens with a clear artificial lens to complete the surgery.

After the procedure, your vision will slowly improve within a few days. Moreover, you will also have to visit your doctor a day after your surgery and also in the following week to assess the healing process. However, in case you experience vision loss, eyelid swelling or increased red-eye redness, then you can contact your health care provider immediately.

Glaucoma Services:

Atypical optic neuropathy, which characterizes the eye condition known as glaucoma, causes gradual loss of visual field. Raised intraocular pressure is the main risk factor. The elderly, diabetics, and those with myopia, mature cataracts, trauma, certain retinal illnesses, and those with a family history of glaucoma are among those at risk for the condition.

Patients are thoroughly examined at KIMS Eye Care Centre before beginning therapy to preserve eyesight and quality of life. At our center, we can do minor laser operations like Yag Peripheral iridotomy. 

Retina Services and Uveitis:

The retina, which is located at the back of the eye, is the neurosensory layer of the eye. The entire body is reflected in the retina."Get treatment for the whole body" is what our team preaches.

The Retina serves as a window to diagnose/manage many systemic diseases, including:

  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Vessel blockade
  • Tuberculosis
  • Sarcoidosis
  • HIV
  • Rheumatology diseases

The availability of super experts enables us to treat patients for their whole health as well as their eye issues, which is especially important in the management of systemic disorders like Diabetes.

ROP (Retinopathy Of Prematurity) is becoming more common as the number of preterm newborns rises. We can handle these situations without delay and, if required, perform laser surgery right away.

We want to draw your attention to Pandora's Box uveitis. We collaborate with pulmonologists, rheumatologists, and internists to diagnose and treat the majority of uveitis patients.

Corneal and refractive services: 

With an increasing incidence of trauma and genetic corneal disorders, we at KIMS Eye Care Center provide a thorough corneal evaluation with associated corneal transplant procedures and later rehabilitation procedures if they require contact lenses and low vision.

Various types of corneal transplants like optical (lamellar, descement membrane) and therapeutic keratoplasty are being performed at our center. 

Today's generation wants a spectacle-free life for cosmetic enhancement. We are here to provide them with the latest technologies like ICL, SMILE, PRK and femtosecond LASIK procedures for a glass-free life.


What is Oculoplasty?

Oculoplasty, often known as ocular plastic surgery, is a procedure that deals with your eye and the tissues next to it. The improvement of your eye's look and functionality, as well as the areas around it, maybe the main goal of oculoplastic surgery. The eye doctors ought to have additional training in cosmetic or reconstructive surgery.

These doctors could help to treat a plethora of conditions related to the eye like:

  • Cosmetic problems like excess upper lid skin or bulging lower lids
  • Injuries to the eye area
  • Excessive fat in the eyelids or blepharoplasty
  • Eyelids that may turn outward or inward
  • Twitching of eyes
  • Blinking of eyes more than necessary
  • Bulging eyes
  • Wrinkles, scars, or folds around the eyes
  • Weakness around the eyelids or the eyes caused by Bell palsy
  • Birth defects of the eyes

What happens during Oculoplasty Surgery?

In most oculoplasty situations, you might be able to return home the same day as your procedure. You have the option of having your oculoplasty surgery at an outpatient facility or as a day surgery. Your doctor may use either local or general anesthetic on you during the oculoplasty procedure, depending on the specific technique employed. Contrarily, a general anesthetic will assist in making you unconscious and put you to sleep throughout the process.
