The department of ophthalmology is dedicated to providing state of the art medical and surgical care in all aspects of adult and pediatric ophthalmology. We provide patient oriented management of ophthalmic problems by integrating and leveraging our combined expertise. The center performs advance surgical procedures which include most current surgical and reconstructive techniques. We have a team of highly experienced surgeons which are supported by most advanced medical equipment and techniques. At Vivekananda Hospital, ophthalmology is the branch of medicine which deals with the diseases and surgery of the visual pathways, including the eye, Brain and areas surrounding the eye such as the lacrimal system and eyelids.

Many sight threatening diseases if detected early can be cured or treated to prevent or slow the progression of serious vision loss.

The most important step in preventing visual loss is by routine examination of eyes by a qualified eye care professional. Children should receive their first comprehensive eye examination before the age of four unless problems warrant an earlier examination. Persons ages 20 to 40 should have an eye examination every five years, 40 to 60 every two years and after 60 every year if there are no visual problems. Immediate care is required if there is visual change, pain, flashes of light, new floaters, injury or tearing etc.

Persons with diabetes are at greater risk for several eye disorders including diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and cataract, and should have eye examination every year or as per their doctor's advice. Asians are more at risk of glaucoma and should have regular check up after 40 years of age especially with positive family history of glaucoma.
