This wonderful clinic gives such comfort and confidence. My aunt moved out feeling so confident to see the world. This is undoubtedly the finest institution for eyes. Not only is every single staff member highly professional and brilliantly competent, everyone is warm, patient understanding and patient friendly. God bless all of you. Very calm and composed doctor. Treats his patients very well. A very satisfactory experience, with a excellent and well trained staff. Highly recommend the doctor.
Doctor should have talked to patient before prescribing anything...he didn't even talk to my mother it's me who had kept on asking him abt medication..
Surprisingly all appointment booked through practo is charged at Rs. 600 whereas all walk-in patient charged at Rs. 500 in this clinic. I have visited at least 10 different doctors through Practo, but never came across this type of practice. I sincerely request practo to look into this. Otherwise I am bound to walk-in in this clinic without prior appointment. This is totally defeating the purpose and business model of practice. As per practice app, booking an appointment is totally free whereas I am paying Rs 100 for booking an appointment. This is totally deficiency in customer service.
The appointment was scheduled for 6:30. We arrived a couple of minutes early and enquired about the doctor. The receptionist told us that he is on the way and will take hardly 10 mins. The time passed on and after 15 minutes we got the same response for the same question with additional detail that he was attending to an emergency(supposed) in a nearby hospital. The doctor arrived an hour late and we came to know that consultations don't start before 7:00 PM. This caused a lot of inconvenience and waste of time.
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
