The Department of Ophthalmology is distinguished by Doctors with long experience and advanced techniques to perform all Surgical interventions to maintain the integrity of your Eye and treat all Medical conditions that affect Eye health such as Corneal Diseases, Retina, Strabismus, or Glaucoma.
You must adhere to the instructions and stay away from the things which is prohibited by the Doctor, usually for a period not to exceed several days, you must focus for the treatment, which lasts from days to weeks, and be committed to follow-up checkup on time.
No touch or rubbing your eyes, washing eyes and not being exposed to smoke and dust.
After cleaning the eyes, first puts plastic around the eye, then showing to the patient a focusing red or green light under the laser microscope, and the laser is projected onto the cornea, and then the eye is washed and put the lens for protection.
It may have big affect and so it is advised to wear sunglasses when lights are in the early days and always in the sun. Sunglasses also protects you from unwanted dirt and dirty air that may contaminate your eyes.
It is possible if the corneal thickness is sufficient or the corneal images are intact, and if there is a slight decrease in vision, you can perform a surface laser or usually Lasik. This needs test which comes handy so we will know detailed report about your case and we can decide with for the highest success rate.
You can treat astigmatism deviation with a laser if the cornea does not contain a keratoconus, and this can be excluded by terrain of the cornea (Topography) and there is a suspicion of keratoconus, hard contact lenses (manual or hard Contact lenses) are the safest solution. There are other ways to correct anomaly and be surgical There are other ways to correct eye aberration and are usually surgical.There are other ways to correct eye aberration and are usually surgical.
Laser surgery is better because -2.50 is relatively slight
This condition is usually caused by microscopic volatile floats in the vitreous liquid , and it is recommended to do an eye examination at least once to make sure there are no bleeding or puncture holes in the retina.
There is no direct relationship, except that upper dental pain may affect the lower orbit of the eye. Also, one of the most common causes of pain around the eye is sinuses.
Cataract, and it must be treated surgically, but Glaucoma is high eye pressure for many reasons and affects the optic nerve, and can be treated with eye drops or may need surgical procedure if the eye pressure continues with the use of drops but deterioration The vision is irreversible.
Certainly the glasses are the safest, but the lenses may make the vision clearer, but care must be taken and cleaned because it may accompany their use and lack of care corneal ulcers or microbial inflammation.
It is usually an indication of an Allergy, a blocked tear Nasal Canal, or other causes.
There are different types of cataracts white water (due to congenital, aging, effect of sugar from inflammation or the use of cortisone). The most common one is age after 45 years of age.
The Cataract lens will be removed under local anesthesia using Phaco technology through a small "2 mm" aperture and the insertion of a new lens into the Eye.
Studies have shown that early detection and treatment is the best way to control the disease, if the classification of the patient falls among the people most at risk of developing the disease, then he should be aware of periodic follow-up. If a person is diagnosed with glaucoma and is a medication to treat it, it must be taken daily. Visit your ophthalmologist regularly. Reducing intraocular pressure when "early stages" of glaucoma slows disease progression and helps protect vision.
Unfortunately at this time there is no categorically effective treatment, and blindness caused by Glaucoma is irreversible, and the goal of treatment is to stop the deterioration and protect the rest of the Vision.
Visual acuity generally means the clarity and the sharpness of vision. It measures the ability of the eye to distinguish the smallest details of objects. Visual acuity measured by the eye chart (usually Snellen) on the distance of 6 meters, which is equivalent to 20 feet. The term 6/6 or 20/20 and the other fractions (such as 6/18 or 20/50, etc.) is used to express the amount of visual acuity at a standard distance (6m or 20ft) compared to a person with normal vision. Example: If your visual acuity is 6/36, it means you must be as close as 6 meters from the object to see what a person with normal visual acuity can see at a distance of 36 meters. 6/6 does not mean perfect vision in all cases; it is only an indication of the extent of sharpness and clarity of vision.
It is known that wearing glasses improves the quality of vision and thus the vision is worse without them, but this does not mean that the vision becomes worse than before, or that the person is adapted to glasses. The truth is that the brain is adapted to clear vision. Worsen vision has nothing to do with wearing glasses or not. If a person’s vision has the ability to decrease for any reason, his or her vision will decrease even if he or she wears glasses because glasses do not correct the vision or worsen it.
One of the natural changes that occur in the eye with age is presbyopia, which often appears after the age of 40, where the vision of nearby objects is relatively blurred and becomes clear when they are further away from the eye. With age, the flexibility of the lens of the eye (that enables us to see close and far objects by changing its convexity according to the distance of the object we want to see) gradually decreases. Presbyopia can be corrected by reading glasses or special contact lenses.
In general, if the prescription of the glasses is ± 4 diopters or less, then the prescription of the lenses is often the same as the glasses, but if the prescription is greater than ± 4 diopters, then there are mathematical methods to glasses prescription to contact lenses. The contact lenses have more details that must be taken into consideration, such as the astigmatism, the diameter and base curve of the lens, and so on, so it is preferable to consult an optometrist.
No, glasses make vision clearer and reduce eye strain, but they do not correct or improve vision after taking them off. As for children, glasses are very important in treating amblyopia (lazy eye), and in some cases, they are a non-surgical treatment for strabismus (eye squint).
No, there are types of drops that are in the form of single-use, but they are not lubricant eye drops, such as some drops for inflammation or pain relievers, which must be taken with a prescription for certain cases and for a short duration only, and the continued use leads to serious complications in the cornea. As for the lubricant drops, they are safe for all the day use and do not require a prescription.
