Infrastructure

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

Optical Coherence Tomograhy is a new non-invasive approach to visualizing retinal vasculature that is transforming the way physicians see retinal and choroid vasculature.

Comprehensive wide field OCT imaging features

  • Visualize retinal pathology with Avanti’s 3D wide field Scan to provide ultra high resolution images.
  • Assess of change over time with RNFL and GCC analysis
  • Precisely calculating of total corneal power and thickness between visits
  • Visualizing of Corneal Angles

Oct can be accomplished by a trained optometrist.

Model

  • Optovue (RTVue XR 100 Avanti) Software Version
  • Software Version 2014.2

OTI B-Scan

The new OTI scan - 1000 is the most advanced ophthalmic ultrasound system both A & B available today. The ultra fast 12.5 NH1- B probe is the only one of its kind with automatic self calibration. Its scanning rate of 50 frames /second allows excellent visualization of low density structures in vitreous. It can generate a 3D image in less than two seconds.

Fundus Fluorescein Angiography

Retina Vitreous Services

Topcon Retinal Camera 50DX is a state of the art digital imaging system for faster, more efficient capture, storage retrieval and analysis of all types of Ophthalmic Images.

Topcon Retinal Camera 50DX incorporates a full range enhancement program that can be of great help in precisely evaluating difficult pathologies.

FFA - Fundus Fluoryescein Angiography done as OPD procedure.

A good quality angiogram requires adequate pupillary dilatation.

The patient is seated in front of the fundus camera. Fluorescein, usually 5ml pf 10% solution is drawn into a syringe. A color and Red Free photograph is taken

Normal FFA

Retina Vitreous Services

Abnormal FFA

Fluorescein is injected rapidly intravenously

Photographs are taken at approximately 1-second intervals, 5-25 sec FFA injection

After the transit phase has been photographed in one eye, control pictures are taken of the opposite eye. Late photographs may also be taken after 1 minute and occasionally 20 minutes, if leakage is anticipated.

The photographs in all quadrants are taken, analysed, reported and accordingly treatment advised.

Multispot Laser

Multispot (Pattern Scan Laser) 532nm green Photocoagulator is the latest laser machine. It is a semi-I pattern generation technique that allows the rapid delivery of laser pulses in a predetermined sequence

  • Very fast and more efficient than standard single shot with less collateral damage to the adjacent retina and choroid.
  • Improved comfort. Full 36 degrees PRP can be done in a single sitting.
  • Macular Grid treatment provides an improved margin of safety and dosimetry control when compared with single shot treatments.

Photocoagulation also known as Light coagulation a treatment procedure introduced into Ophthalmology in the early 90s. Light from a suitable source is focused into the eye and converted into heat by tissues that selectively absorb the light. An immediate coagulation occurs in the choroids, retina which later results in a scar. Photocoagulation is similar to the manner in which paper can be burnt when sunlight is proper ly focused on it by means of a convex lens. The Argon or Diode Laser Photocoagulator utilizes Mono-chromatic laser that exhibits coherence. The laser is generated in a tube and delivere d into the patient’s eye by means of an optical system.

The advantage of the laser is that very small areas very close to the fovea - the region most vital for visual function is safely guarded.

Photocoagulation is advised after the doctor has completed a thorough examination of the patient’s eye, studied the Fluorescein angiogram pictures and weighed the benefits to be derived by treatment compared to natural history of the disease. Treatment is done on an out - patient basis. You may need treatment for one or both the eyes . each eye may need one to five treatment sessions. The pupils will have to be maximally dilated prior to each treatment session. Each session will last about 20 minutes and your waiting period may be between 1 to 2 hours. If you are a Diabetic you can bring some snacks with you. So that you do not become hypoglycemic, any medication that you may be taking for your general systemic diseases are to be continued during Photocoagulation treatment.

Post Laser

You can have normal diet before and after treatment and you can bathe. Any mode of transport ( auto, bus, car, aeroplane) is permissible. You may watch movies or television after the treatment.

Laser Photocoagulation can be performed through the Indirect Ophthalmoscope with the patient lying down on the couch, or by seating the patient at the slit lamp. During treatment through the slit lamp delivery system, after instillation of drops to anaesthetize the surface of the eye, a contact lens will be placed on the eye through which the doctor looks in and treats the inside of the eye. You will be required to keep the eyes open and look in the direction in which you are requested to look. After completion of treatment the eye will be left open. Vision will be blurred for a couple of hours after the treatment and need not cause concern.

The main purpose of Photocoagulation is to arrest the progress of the disease at the stage at which it is being treated thereby preventing certain vision threatening complication that may ensue later. The vision usually remains the same and in certain limited conditions improves. It does not make you feel better or improve your symptoms like blackspots, floaters etc . In some instances where the disease process is progressing rapidly, Photocoagulation may not help in producing the desired effect.

A State of the art Operation Theatre Complex

Retina theatre is fully equipped with all the instruments needed to perform even most complicated retinal surgeries which includes latest operating microscopes with biom, Constellation Vitrectomy unit, all the microsurgical instruments etc.

Patient Education

How do we see?

Human eye is like a came, the lens allows light to pass through and focuses it on the film. When the light hits the film, picture is taken. Our eye works in the same way. The light rays from the object passes through the cornea, and lens which focus the light on the retina. On the retina an inverted image of the object is formed. Once light energy hits the retina, the photosensitive enzymes trigger a chain of impulses that travel through the optic nerve and reach the brain. Brain will read the information from both eyes, cra. When you take a picture with the cameraonvert the electrical impulses into light impulses and fuse both images from the two eyes. That's how we see!!
