Generally I am quite apprehensive about doctor visits, but Dr Aman Malik had a very friendly demeanour, listened empathetically and helped resolve my concerns. I had gone to see him for issues with eye dryness, itching and blurry vision. The clinic was also sanitised and followed cleanliness protocols. Would recommend.
Dr Malik's medication and his advice during the treatment either during physical visit or through WhatsApp ( in the time of Pandemic) helped me to recover from an eye injury.
I am very much satisfied with Dr Aman ‘s consultation n his treatment.Nicely explained me my problem n treatment n precautions. Again called me to know my condition . Very much concerned that I like it .Thanks again for ur friendliness
I consulted Dr Aman for my mom's cataract problem. He was very patient in explaining the disease and helpful in choosing among the treatment options. During surgery he was very gentle and made my mom feel very comfortable during entire procedure. He is brilliant in his subject and very diligent surgeon.
Q: Who is an Ophthalmologist?
A: An ophthalmologist is a medical doctor specialised in vision and eye care. Unlike other specialisations in eye care, ophthalmologists attend to almost all kinds of eye disorders and related issues. Since they are doctors, they can refer patients to other specialists even if the disease is not eye related.
Q: Is an Ophthalmologist different from an Optometrist?
A: Yes. Both of them are very much different. Although ophthalmologists and optometrists both provide vision and eye care, an optometrist attends to common eye disorders and certain chronic diseases like glaucoma, while an ophthalmologist, along with the common disorders, can take up more complex eye disorders that even require surgery.
Q: Can an Ophthalmologist perform surgery?
A: Yes, ophthalmologists can perform surgery as they tend to have years of training and experience. Many ophthalmologists obtain subspecialty training in areas like eyelid surgery, retinal surgery or pediatric surgery. Others perform surgery based on requirements of the local hospitals or surgical centres.
Q: How can an Ophthalmologist help for Cataract?
A: Ophthalmologists initially perform eye exams like slit-lamp exam, retinal exam, and visual acuity test. Once cataract is diagnosed, there are certain steps that the patient should follow. Cataract can be removed only with surgery. During surgery, the eye’s natural cloudy lens is replaced by an artificial lens by the surgeon, thus resolving the issue.
Q: Should one visit an Ophthalmologist for contact lenses?
A: An ophthalmologist can indeed prescribe contact lenses. Even optometrists can prescribe contact lenses and hence it is not necessary that one should visit an ophthalmologist only. Both of them can perform eye exams for the same and the patient can visit either of them
