I found out about Dr. Pranav Radkar on Practo and had taken my daughter for her routine eye checkup once. That was about 9 months ago. But that experience was so nice that when it came to my wife, who was complaining of severe migrain-like headache and an irregular vision, I did not think twice about taking her to Dr. Pranav's clinic. And boy, was that a good decision! The moment she started explaining her symptoms and pains, he knew instinctively that this was something much more than normal headache and vision pbm. A few probing questions and checkup later, he was ready with an early diagnosis. He calmed her down and suggested an immediate MRI, while explaining what the problem could be. He himself called a few MRI centres, identified the right one and instructed the technician about the test himself. An MRI next day confirmed what Dr. Pranav was suspecting - CSVT (which in simple terms means a clot in one of the veins in the brain which was connected to the optic nerve). ** ********* ** ******* * *********** ** *** ********* He didn't stop at that. He went out of his way to help in getting an early appointment with one of the best neurologists in our area. And then he continued to follow up on his own regularly for updates and help. Without his early diagnosis, calm consultation and constant help, my wife could probably have suffered much more without even knowing what ailed her. Truly Dr. Pranav, you are so so very amazing person (and Doctor) to know!
Visited Dr. Pranav for my father as he had developed a blurred spot in vision of right eye. we had previously consulted another dr and had been diagnosed as cataract. We visited Dr. Pranav as we were planning the operation for cataract. The benefits I reaped by visiting Dr. Pranav are as follows:1. Before visiting Dr. Pranav, my father was scared of the surgery, but Dr made him very comfortable about it and cleared all his doubts.2. properly explained the disease and the procedure of the operation.3. Properly explained the lens types and helped to choose the right one.4. He helped to arrange everything for the day of operation and it was a smooth experience.5. We were so happy with the experience, my father got his second eye operated within 15 days by Dr. Pranav as the cataract was also developing in the other eye.Overall, it was smooth and rejuvenating experience for my father and I am happy for that. Thanks Dr. Pranav Radkar for al your help.
Dr.Radkar is very polite in nature .He explained things very well .we had a Cataract surgery of my father in law ,the operation went really well.
Dr. Pranav was very courteous during checkup as suddenly I developed a blurr vision due to some irritation and itching of eyes . Dr has explained me the root cause and emphasised that I don't need to worry. No need to come even second time .
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
