The goal of any treatment is to prevent loss of vision, as vision loss from glaucoma is irreversible. The good news is that glaucoma can be managed if detected early, and that with medical and/or surgical treatment, most people with glaucoma will not lose their sight. At Drishyam Eye Care hospital the patient is investigated thoroughly with the use of Perimetry, Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT) and then the treatment is personalized to the patient to maintain his vision and quality of life.
The Paediatric Ophthalmology Department at Drishyam Eye Care Hospital deals with eye problems in children. Paediatric ophthalmology is unique amongst the sub-specialties of ophthalmology. Its boundaries are defined primarily by the age of the patient rather than by groups of clinical conditions that it treats. At Drishyam we provide treatment for an extensive range of paediatric eye problems such as sight-threatening conditions like paediatric glaucoma, cataract and congenital opacities of the cornea.
The Department of Orbit is the management of diseases and abnormalities of the orbit, eyelids and the lacrimal system. Ptosis (Drooping of the upper eyelid) (ptosis) is one of the major eye disease dealing under this unit. If the lid droop is very severe especially in young children, it can even lead to lazy eye (amblyopia). The eye condition need to address in time to ensure the cosmetic aspect of the person is taken care. Oculoplasty unit deals with plastic surgery around the eye. The eyeball is a delicate structure, protected from harm by eyelids in front and the bony cup (socket) behind. Behind the eyeball run the nerves, arteries and muscles, which carry messages to the brain, move the eyeball and provide nutrition to the eye.
