Contoura Lasik

Contoura Vision has certainly proved its mettle in the world of most advanced and conventional eye surgical procedures by providing a bladeless, pain free and quick treatment to specs and contact lens free vision. Contoura Vision uses a laser guided by computer to replace the cloudy lens in a patient's eyes with an artificial intraocular lens also called IOL.

Known to be the latest FDA approved LASIK technology, Contoura Vision has made it easy for the people to get rid of poor vision. Built on the principle of topography, Contoura Vision surgery maps all 22,000 points of the cornea.

Advantages of Contoura Vision

SPECS REMOVAL

Contoura Vision is approved by US-FDA and claims the highest safety among all the specs removal procedures.

Contoura Vision also comes with the following advantages:

  • Bladeless
  • Painless
  • Stitchless
  • No injections
  • No bandage
  • No hospitalisation
  • Walk out specs free

CORNEAL IRREGULARITIES

Contoura Vision, with the help of a special Topolyser, can successfully map and remove corneal irregularities by marking 22,000 unique elevation points on the cornea.

This helps in creating a perfect smooth surface of cornea, thereby improving visual sharpness and quality.

Visual Axis Treatment

The visual axis is the natural seeing axis of the eye and contoura vision helps in treating the same. Other procedures including SMILE and LASIK treat the pupillary axis.

This treatment on Visual Axis helps in improving the quality of the vision.

Difference Between Contoura Vision and LASIK

Both LASIK and Contoura Vision are state-of-the-art techniques used to enhance long-sightedness, short-sightedness, and astigmatism. There are certain differences between the two surgeries regarding both the procedures and visual outcome.

  • While LASIK has been considered to be the gold standard when it comes to removing contact lenses or spectacles, the Contoura Vision procedure gives better visual acuity and refractive outcome. Contoura Vision has taken the LASIK surgery to an all new level.
  • Irregularities in the curvature of the cornea are usually the underlying cause of vision problems. Contoura vision procedure treats the irregularities of the curvature of both the cornea as well as optics. The treatment is centered on the visual axis of the eye. In contrast, other LASIK procedures are not centered on the visual axis of the eye but on the pupil.
  • With Contoura Vision, at least 22,000 points of the cornea are mapped. An individualized treatment plan is made, and the laser applies this treatment to the cornea. The contours that are generated by the computer analysis for the cornea are programmed into a specially designed laser used for the procedure since each patient has different eyes and no two treatment plans can be the same.
  • The irregularities of the cornea are smoothed, and optical quality becomes so perfect that light penetrates through the eye evenly. This results in much clearer and sharp vision. Most of the patients are able to see more clearly without spectacles after getting Contoura Vision surgery done than they did with corrective lenses. There are also significantly fewer problems with halos and glares around the lights.
  • The results of contoura vision are incredibly amazing and exciting. The treatment causes less damage to the tissues. Contoura Vision surgery also treats people who’ve had LASIK surgery but are not satisfied with the results.

Contoura Vision is the latest advancement in the world of specs removal. While procedures like SMILE and LASIK only improve specs power, Contoura Vision goes a step ahead. In addition to improving the specs power, Contoura Vision also works on improving the corneal irregularities while working on Visual axis, thereby providing much sharper vision quality, unmatched with SMILE & LASIK.

CORNEA TREATMENT

The cornea is an optical structure on the front of the eye that helps one see clearly by focusing on the light. If the cornea gets damaged permanent loss of corneal transparency resulting in opacification or clouding is likely to happen. Other corneal diseases such as pterygium, corneal dystrophy, corneal tears, corneal oedema, infective keratitis, contact lens related keratitis, allergic keratoconjunctivitis and corneal degeneration are caused due to malnutrition, Vitamin A deficiency and infection, resulting in corneal blindness.

Problems Affecting the Cornea

Various issues can affect the health of a cornea. Some of them are:

  • Corneal Ulcer
  • Corneal Abrasion
  • Keratoconus
  • Arcus senilis
  • Dry Eyes
  • Corneal Degeneration

Retinal diseases treatment

Retina is where the vision begins. It converts the light into signals that the brain can interpret, which in return helps us see. Retina sits in the back of the eye. The diseases that cause impaired retina include Macular edema, Macular degeneration, Diabetic retinopathy, Central serous retinopathy, Hypertensive retinopathy, Solar retinopathy and Detached retina with Macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. People who are more prone to the mentioned disorders are mostly elderly and poor.

Retinal Problems

There are four retinal disorders:

  • Retinopathy Of Prematurity – It is caused due to the abnormal development of retinal blood vessels and usually affects prematurely born babies. It may lead to blindness and retinal detachment.
  • Diabetic Retinopathy – Diabetic retinopathy is one of the most common issues among people who have diabetes. The high blood sugar levels damage the blood vessels of the retina. This damages the retina and during the advanced stages it may also lead to blindness.
  • Retinal Detachment – The detachment of the retina from the layer underneath is called retinal detachment. If timely care is not taken, there are chances that permanent vision loss might happen.
  • Age-Related Macular Degeneration – A damaged Macula can cause AMD which in turn may lead to a permanent vision loss.

For Diabetic Retinopathy patients

Generally, diabetics don't develop the disorder until they have been diabetic for at least 10 years. The primary care physician of any person who has been diagnosed with diabetes must refer the patient to an eye doctor for a dilated eye exam at least once a year. Diabetes mellitus (DM) causes abnormal changes in the blood sugar which the body converts into energy to perform normal bodily functions. Uncontrolled diabetes allows unusually high levels of blood sugar (hyperglycemia) to accumulate in blood vessels, causing damage that hampers or alters blood flow to your body’s organs —including your eyes. If our eye doctor discovers a retinal detachment or other serious retina problem, he or she may refer you to an ophthalmologist who is a retina specialist for surgical or medical care at Sohana eye care centre.

This is how the eye of children is different from adults

We all need a child specialist to maintain the general health of our kids, in the same way, their eyes also call for an eye specialist. This is because the eye care in children is entirely different from those in adults. Below are a few facts about children and how they might become prone to eye problems:

  • During early childhood, the brain-eye connection is not fully developed. Thus, in case there is a deprivation of vision during childhood and the same remains unattended, it may result in amblyopia or lazy eye. This limits the visual potential of the child and there might come a time when even the glasses would fail to help.
  • The disorders of development or congenital anomalies usually show up during the early stage of life. These may range from refractive errors which may hardly require corrective glasses, to squint or misalignment of eyes, ptosis or lid droop, congenital nasolacrimal duct block, and even cataract and glaucoma.
  • Infants who are born immature, are of low birth weight or stay in the newborn nursery for a prolonged time, are prone to a disease called Retinopathy of Prematurity (RoP). RoP can adversely affect the vision. So, it must be screened timely considering the high-risk involved.
  • Malnutritioned children often suffer from the deficiency of Vitamin A and the eye problems related with such deficiency includes corneal ulcers, dry eye, and even blindness.
  • Children enjoy a very active lifestyle. They love to play outdoors and thus, are more prone to eye allergies and trauma.
  • Increased screen time has also given rise to eye related problems.

Symptoms of eye problem in children

  • Family history of eye disorders
  • Misaligning of the eye or noticeable squint
  • Red eyes, repeatedly rubbing eye, watery eyes, recurring eye infections
  • Difficulty in reading or facing challenge while copying from the board while sitting at a distance

LASER ASSISTED CATARACT SURGERY

While the traditional manual Lasik eye surgery involved sutures during the procedure, Sohana eye care centre takes pride to own the latest innovation in eye care technology. In Femto laser assisted LenSx cataract surgery, laser is used as a tool to break up the cataract in the eye and create incisions in the cornea. LCS is associated with greater accuracy of IOL power calculations, leading to greater predictability in refractive outcomes due to precise capsulotomy sizing and centering of the IOL. Since no manual incisions are involved, the surgery is pain free, suture-less and faster recovery is alleviated.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma- What is it?
Glaucoma, famously known as kala motia in India, is a condition that occurs due to the damage caused to the optic nerve and results in blind spots in the eyes, blurry vision, and gradually blindness.

In a healthy human eye, aqueous humor- a clear transparent fluid continuously secrets and drains out through the microscopic channels inside the eye and then into the blood vessels. When these vessels block for any reason, the fluid starts to accumulate in the eye and it results in building up the pressure. If the built up pressure is not controlled timely, it will damage the optic nerve of the eye, which will eventually result in blindness.

Do not confuse Glaucoma with Cataract

Glaucoma can be confused with cataract many times. Cataract also results in a painless, gradual loss of vision. The difference between both is that in case of cataract, the loss of vision is recoverable through a simple surgery called Phaco.

As told earlier, a healthy human eye, aqueous humor- a clear transparent fluid continuously secrets and drains out through the microscopic channels inside the eye and then into the blood vessels. In people with glaucoma, the fluid does not drain due to some defect and thus the increased pressure inside the eyes damages the optic nerve of the eye.

Glaucoma- Who is at the risk?

Anyone may develop the condition of glaucoma. It is just that some people are exposed to the problem at a higher risk than others. Here are a few risk factors that shows the possibility of Glaucoma

  • People over 40 yrs of age
  • Family history of glaucoma
  • People who suffer from diabetes People with myopia for open angle type and hyperopia for close angle type
  • People who struggle with hypertension
  • People who struggle with migraines

Common Symptoms of Glaucoma

In most of the cases, the patient does not realize the gradual loss of sight until the vision gets significantly impaired. However, if the patient does not realize that there is some problem and glaucoma progresses without proper treatment, the below mentioned symptoms may occur in some individuals:

  • Pain around the eyes when leaving a dark place/space. For example, as soon as you step out of a cinema hall
  • Vibrant halo rings around light bulbs especially in the night and morning
  • Frequent changes in reading glasses
  • Sudden headache, pain, and redness of the eyes
  • Reduced vision in dim lights, especially during nights
  • Gradual decrease of side vision as the condition of glaucoma worsens

Refractive Services

Refractive error is a condition in which the shape of your eye does not bend light correctly, resulting in a blurred image. The most common types of refractive error include myopia- nearsightedness, hyperopia- farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia- loss of near vision with age.

Symptoms include:
  • A blurred vision
  • Difficulty seeing or reading close
  • Rolling of the eyes in children
Tests and Diagnosis

A refractive error can be easily diagnosed by an eye care professional during a routine eye check-up. During the test, the patient is asked to read a vision chart while testing an assortment of lenses to test the vision.

PEDIATRIC OPHTHALMOLOGY

Pediatric Ophthalmology is an important aspect of eye care as the brain-eye relationship is not fully developed in children. Under such circumstances, lifelong impairments as learning disabilities are likely to happen. Pediatric cataract, Chalazia, Red eye, refractive errors, redness of eyes (conjunctivitis-infective or allergic), watering of eyes, strabismus (deviation of eyes), amblyopia (lazy eyes), lid abnormalities (ptosis), congenital cataracts, congenital glaucoma, developmental abnormalities of the eyes (microphthalmos), vitreous hemorrhage, retinopathy of prematurity, persistent fetal vasculature syndrome (PHPV), chorioretinal coloboma, tumors (retinoblastoma) , optic disc abnormalities (coloboma, hypoplasia, optic atrophy, swollen optic discs) are some of the optic disorders that are commonly observed in children. Some of the most common symptoms of vision problems in children include watery eyes, frequent rubbing of eyes, habit of keeping visual targets at close distance, headaches, adoption of abnormal head postures. Sohana eye care centre has a separate pediatric ophthalmology unit that addresses all these needs of your child’s vision and visual issues.

LASER ASSISTED CATARACT SURGERY

Cataract is a condition that usually develops during old age as a result of clouding of the natural lens of the eye. The condition may also occur among infants and young children too. Cataract causes glare, blurred vision, and sensitivity to bright lights. As the condition worsens, it results in a progressive decrease in vision.

A healthy lifestyle prevents cataracts but in case the disease happens, it can be managed using spectacles. However, if the vision decreases as the condition worsens, the only option that remains is a surgery.

While the traditional manual Lasik eye surgery involves sutures during the procedure, Sohana eye care centre takes pride in owning the latest innovation in eye care technology.

Who Is At a Risk of Cataract?

  • People above 60 years of age
  • People who take steroids
  • Exposure to ultraviolet rays
  • People who have diabetes
  • People who already have any eye injury

Symptoms

Increased blurring of vision without any pain is the most common symptom. The blurred vision may trouble more in bright light. The contrast and brightness decreases during early cataract. Some people may also feel glare while driving in the dark. As the condition progresses, the vision starts to deteriorate, interfering with normal routine activities.

Ocuplasty and reconstructive surgery

Oculoplastic is a cosmetic side of ophthalmology that deals with plastic and reconstructive surgery of the periorbital and facial tissues including the eyelids, eyebrows, forehead, cheeks, orbit (bony cavity around the eye), and lacrimal (tear) system. Our doctors are proficient in oculoplasty in the following categories.

  • Ptosis
  • Tear duct surgery
  • Eyelid Malposition
  • Eyelid Reconstruction
  • Eyelid Lesions
  • Eyelid lift
  • Entropion Surgery
  • Ectropion Surgery
  • Eye socket reconstruction

Who Needs an Ophthalmic Plastic Surgery?

There is no denying the fact that there is no one better than your eye doctor to suggest you a surgery, here are a few symptoms that you may experience and know that you might require oculoplasty:

  • More than required blinking of eyes
  • Eyelids Hanging Downwards
  • Sudden twitching of eyes
  • Wrinkles or scars near eyes
  • Eyelids tearing in or out
  • Blocked Tear Ducts
  • Tumors surrounding the eyes or growing inside
  • excessive fat in eyelids
  • Eyes bulging out
  • Orbit Tumor
  • Burning sensation in the eye

TYPES OF CONTACT LENSES

Hard Lenses

These are made up of a material known to be PMMA and are only used in special circumstances.

Soft Lenses

As the name itself suggests, soft lenses have a smooth surface and are made up of sophisticated polymers. These are very comfortable to wear.

RGP Lenses

RGP stands for Rigid Gas Permeable lenses. They throw off a look like that of hard lenses but are made of material that makes it easy for the oxygen to go from tear film to cornea.

TYPES OF CONTACT LENSES

These are specially designed lenses to help people with Keratoconus- a condition in which cornea takes the shape of a cone. These are multi-colored, customized, made according to corneal shape and sometimes these are the only option for Keratoconus eyes.

  • Suffer from frequent eye infections
  • Have severe allergies
  • Are resistant to dry eye treatment
  • Work in a dusty environment
  • Cannot handle and take care of contact lenses
  • Experience redness, persistent discomfort, or blurred vision

Some do’s and don’ts for contact lens users

  • Keep your fingernails neatly cut
  • Wash your hands properly before using lenses
  • Avoid use of any kind of moisturiser, lotion, cold cream, or oily cosmetics before touching the lenses
  • Clean the lenses with prescribed solution
  • Store your lenses in a fresh solution inside the lens case
  • Pay a visit to your doctor almost every 4 months
  • Develop the habit of always handling one lens at a time so that the two may not mix
  • Do not rub your eyes while you are wearing lenses
  • Do not wear lenses for more than given time limit
  • Do not use lenses if you experience redness or pain
  • Do not sleep while you are wearing contact lenses
  • Do not wash your lenses in hot water
  • Do not switch brands of your contact lens care products
  • Do not share your lenses with anyone
  • Do not experiment with your contact lenses

Contact Lens Clinic

Contact lens, or simply contacts are thin ocular prosthetic devices placed directly on the surface of the eyes. They are used in lieu of eye glasses with spectacle numbers. Soft lenses are the latest lenses used by most of the people around the world and can be used further depending on the type of wear: Daily (routine) wear or extended wear (quarterly, monthly, fortnightly, and weekly). We have an in-house lens clinic at Sohana Hospital where you can choose from wide range of lenses as per your doctor’s advise.
