2 clinics for General Consultation
I have been visiting and consulting Dr. Sameer for all my eye related issues and problems for 2 years now. ** ** ** ********* ****** *** good human being. He is very clam, understanding and approachable and of course possesses great knowledge and experience in eye care issues. I have always had a good experience wit him and trust him completely. I would recommend him to everyone I know..
I visited for my wife's eye treatment, although this was not my first time when I visited. Excellent Doctor, Excellent treatment, very well explanation about root cause and problem. No unnecessary test or jargon or medicines. I remember for similar problem two year back I visited one Doctor who recommended surgery kind of thing and referred it to Artemis. Thank God I found Dr. Sameer Kaushal who said your problem will resolved even without medicine.
I started wearing spectacles in 2015. It was obvious my eyesight had deteriorated as an outcome of elongated hours in front of the laptop screen. He is the first doctor who advised at relaxing the eye muscle, with the use of lower power glasses/no glasses while working. The myopic eyes do not require power for viewing nearby objects. Now I would use the higher power glasses while driving or watching tv.
Dr. Sameer is extremely honest, no misguiding or trying to scare like many of others do. Is very calm and patient and takes out time to address all concerns raised. ********* ******* very reliable. Highly recommended for all friends and family members
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
