**** ********** ******* Treatment and medicine start effecting very soon. **** ********** We recommend Dr. Aarti
** **** ** ************** humble and pleasant. She made emotional connect with my mother and put her in comfortable zone to complete entire course of treatment.
Dr Aarti heard the problem patiently and did detailed examination of my grandmother's eyes. She explained the problem and solution in detail. The only problem was the waiting time. I had to wait for over an hour. My appointment was at 5 PM and I met her at 6:10 PM. My suggestion is go one hour prior to your appointment time because the nurse/hospital staff will ask you to wait for about 45-50 minutes after they dilate your eyes. After that only you will be able to see the doctor.
The friendliness of the team , the frankness and care of the Doctors reinforces faith in Aarti’s professionalism in Meeting with providing eye care. The focus is on the health of the eye and not on commercials is my observation which is a a most welcome step. Thanks team Aarti
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
