SMILE laser vision correction.
Smile is a third generation laser vision correction for the eye. No flap is made on the cornea thus minimal trauma to the cornea. There is no burning of the tissue as in conventional lasik surgery or prk. Hence the tissue preservation is very good ensuring minimal dry eye disorders after the surgery. The structural integrity of the cornea is preserved in the process there is no weakening of the corneal layer.
This latest the most advanced method for removal of glasses / laser vision correction is available.

Hyphema - Blood clot in the eye

Hyphema - Blood clot in the eye

This patient came with injury to the eye while playing cricket. He has blurring of vision and dull ache.

Incidentally on examination a small hyphema ( Blood clot) is seen in the eye. Luckily there seems no other injury effects in the eye as of now.

Hopefully he should do well with medicines.
This brings out the debate of wearing protective glasses while playing as there have been incidences of loss of vision and other grave injuries.

Posterior Capsular Opacity

Also known as an After Cataract, the Posterior Capsular Opacification is common occurence after the cataract surgery.

  • Sometimes you develop a thin layer/ thickening behind the lens or on the posterior capsule of the lens ( that is the back support) of the natural lens.
  • This thickening of the capsule causes your vision to become cloudy. If this happens you may need to have laser treatment, Nd:YAG laser capsulotomy, to make vision clear again. Once you have had the laser treatment for PCO it doesn’t normally cause any long term problem with your sight.
  • The incidence of PCO is known to range from as high as 50% to as low as <5% in eyes undergoing cataract surgery for uncomplicated senile cataracts.
  • The need for performing capsulotomy depends on the patient's functional impairment of vision, discomfort, and demands.
  •  The clinical complications from Nd:YAG laser capsulotomy include a rise in intraocular pressure, glaucoma, cystoid macular edema and retinal detachment.
