Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine concerned with the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disorders and diseases related to the eyes and visual system. It's a multifaceted field that encompasses medical, surgical, and rehabilitative aspects of eye care.

What we treat at Jeevan Jyoti Hospital

1. Common Eye Conditions

We diagnose and manage a wide range of eye conditions, including refractive errors (such as myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism), cataracts, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachment, corneal diseases, and eye infections. Some of the common conditions include

  • Age-related macular degeneration usually affects individuals over the age of 50 and may lead to loss of vision due to damage to the macula.
  • Cataracts are the number one cause of vision impairment throughout the world, and cataract surgery is the second most common procedure performed in the United Kingdom.
  • Diabetic retinopathy involves damage to the blood vessels in the eyes due to excessive glucose levels in the blood. This can lead to vision impairment.
  • Glaucoma is a condition that involves damage to the optic nerve in the eye, which can gradually worsen vision.

2. Diagnostic Techniques

Our Ophthalmologists use various diagnostic tools and techniques to evaluate vision and diagnose eye disorders. These include visual acuity tests, tonometry (to measure intraocular pressure), slit-lamp examination, fundoscopy, and visual field testing.

3. Treatment Modalities

  • Medical Management: Our Ophthalmologists prescribe medications such as eye drops, ointments, or oral medications to treat conditions like glaucoma, infections, inflammation, and allergies.
  • Surgical Interventions: Ophthalmic surgery may be necessary for conditions like cataracts, glaucoma, retinal detachment, corneal diseases, etc. Common procedures include cataract extraction by Phaco machine.

4. Pediatric Ophthalmology

This subspecialty focuses on eye conditions affecting children, including amblyopia (lazy eye), strabismus (misaligned eyes), congenital cataracts, pediatric glaucoma, and retinopathy of prematurity (ROP).

5. Preventive Eye Care

Ophthalmologists promote preventive measures to maintain eye health and prevent vision loss. This includes regular eye exams, wearing protective eyewear, managing systemic conditions like diabetes and hypertension, and promoting healthy lifestyle habits.

6. Collaboration with Other Specialties

Ophthalmologists often collaborate with other medical specialties such as Internal medicine, Neurology, Endocrinology, Gynecology, and oncology, as many systemic diseases can affect the eyes. A few of them are:

  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • A family history of eye conditions
  • HIV
  • Thyroid conditions, for example, Graves’ disease
