2 clinics for General Consultation
I had consulted the doctor for a general eye checkup. She is nice, polite and her behaviour was good. She did many tests for my eyes and explained everything in the way that I can understand. Overall am satisfied with the consultation and her treatment. I would like to recommend this doctor to my family and friends.
She was thorough, explained things , answered questions and was very kind and humane. Slight delay due to some electric issues in the clinic so wait time was there but she kept trying to see as many as she could. The AC was not functioning so was a little difficult to sit for long and wait ! Otherwise a good experience
Doctor is very friendly and also interacts very well with the patients, she looks in deep to know whats the problem is and then give the medications I found really very helpful. i have been consulting her past 1 year,i f i say in medical she has a enough confidence she did cataract surgery so whenever i have a problem i visit her, processing is good. *** ** ** ********* ****** * **** *****

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
