My mother ( Mrs.Hamida.S.Jamena ) have recently had cataract removal operations for her left eye from your hospital. These days it is almost impossible to open a newspaper or hear/watch a newscast, without some scandal or serious problem with the NHS being in the headlines. I therefore take pleasure in commending to your attention, the excellent service provided by the above, particularly Dr.Sachin Bodhale. All staff were helpful, courteous and professional in the extreme. Both my mother and I were impressed at the number of checks made before the operations. I must have been asked at least six times what I was there for. If all departments in all hospitals carry out such checks we simply cannot understand why "never events" as I believe they are called, happen at all. As regards the procedure itself, speaking as someone whose education has been solely in the humanities, I cannot make up my mind whether it is black magic or medicine at the Star Treck level. One can only admire the research and development in several disciplines which must lie behind the procedure, and the skill of the surgeons and other staff involved. I hope and assume your administrative procedures are such that this letter will be brought to the attention of the staff at the Day Clinic.
Around 4 years ago, on suspicion of something wrong in my eye (floaters), I picked the first doctor found on Google Search for diagnosis. I consider myself fortunate that he turned out to be Dr. Sachin Bodhale. He promptly accommodated an appointment for me on the same day, and provided me with a diagnosis (retinal tear) as well as advised me for an immediate non-invasive surgery. I took the advice, and on the same night, he carried it out. I can safely say that he saved my eye. Since then, I have been his patient. His medical acumen is matched by his professionalism and his down-to-earth nature. His personal dedication to his patients is proved from the fact that the surgery was performed at 10pm at night, which is well beyond clinic hours. His availability is proven from the fact that he has no qualms on giving out his mobile number to his patients for any emergency.
Not a worthy doctor. Seems to be a money oriented medical practitioner. I visited his clinic for my mother's glaucoma treatment. He charged double the consultation fees for intraocular pressure checking, which every ophthalmologist is supposed to do for a glaucoma patient.
will not recommend. doctor charges very high for check up.patient can do bargaining on treatment as rates are very from patient to patient.
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
