It was very good experience with the doctor. The doctor explained the problem very clearly and the treatment suggested was also good.
Well qualified and experienced doctors. Infrastructure is very good. The staff is well behaved. I highly recommend the clinic to all the persons who need surgery of eye, retina and other eye related issues.
Very well behaviour and good time spent with the Arura mam. She again called me within the week for reviewing. I will visit once again most probably on Friday
The doctor didn't allow to explain the issue. Though, I understand due to Covid19, doctors are over cautious. Advised for OCT, PMT and Pachymetry tests. Keep on advising further tests without giving any explanation and diagnosis of what's the issue for further test. Even doctor insists to go on with further test within same sitting. No payment receipt was given for consultation and prescribed test. *** **** *** ****** ***** **** ****** ***** *** ******** **** *** ********* ** ******** **** **********l Would not recommend to anyone.
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
