1 clinic for General Consultation
First time visited centre for sight eye hospital Banjarahills for normal eye checkup, i had more burning and irritation of eyes..taking consultation with Dr.A.k bansal,advise some medication,after using medication no burning no irritation 😍😍😍😍...special thanks to Dr.A.k bansal
Consultation experience was good, I walked in for my mother-in-law for eye check-up she had a problem in her eyes her eyelid used to closes very frequently. we showed to the other doctor they suggested us for some detoxification but when we met the doctor he confirmed that the issue was not with the eyelid it was for dryness in the eyes and identified there is an infection and treated that post that we saw some improvements. The doctor was very polite and professional. I would like to recommend the doctor. I think the waiting time should improve in the clinic. I am 100% satisfied with the doctor and his treatment just wanted to say hospital people need to share reports to the patients.
We met him and have done cataract surgery done, the experience was good we actually visited another doctor before visiting him he was reasonable, what the root cause, how things can be made up. The doctor was professional, one of my relatives referred me to this doctor, the patient is my mom she hasn’t complain about any other unusual behaviour. Center for sight would be my first prefer and I think doctor should be available maybe he is working professional, there was no waiting time but the appointment was scheduled very narrowly otherwise everything is good if people are facing big problem and for fee and consultation I would suggest Dr. Aashish Kumar Bansal is one of the right person.

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
