Vision Correction Techniques

The principle of correcting refractive errors is to modify the refractive power: To decrease the refractive power in a nearsighted person; and to increase it in a farsighted person The most common techniques include:
  • Spectacles
    Spectacles are the most widely used and are universally considered the most safe devices. However, for various reasons many people find that spectacles are not necessarily the answer to their vision problems. For example, they are not suitable for people whose focusing problems differ greatly between one eye and the other, they are not allowed in certain professions and they are not practical for sports.

  • Contact Lenses
    Contact Lenses are another popular choice. They provide convenience and are reasonably safe. However, they are not risk-free. Users of contact lenses are more prone to infections in the eye than the general population, even with proper care of the lenses. Therefore, one must always consult an ophthalmologist when planning to use contact lenses and strictly follow the cleaning guidelines. Some people who are allergic to the lens materials or the disinfecting solutions cannot use the contact lenses.

    Certain environments are prohibitive to the use of contact lenses, such as very dusty or smoky surroundings, and so are activities such as swimming.

  • Refractive Surgery
    Refractive Surgery has been developed as a means to correct vision problems for people who cannot (or wish to) wear spectacles or contact lenses. Refractive Surgery has been continuously developed for decades, from Radial Keratotomy (RK) to Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) which uses a type of laser called an excimer laser to directly reshape the surface of the cornea. Today, the Excimer Laser is being used in combination with an instrument called the Microkeratome, in a surgical procedure called Laser In-situ Keratomileusis (or LASIK).

    Our hospitals use the most advanced state-of-the-art systems. With over 85 years of distinction in eye care. we are proud to have the first eye hospital in India to launch the 400 Hz laser. ISO 9001:2000 certified with strict protocols on hygiene. LASIK patients treated from over 48 countries. Our portfolio of patients include members of Government, members of Consulates, CEO"s of Fortune 500 companies, physicians from USA, Bollywood stars, celebrities, models, airline crew, police officers and navy personnel.

  • Implantable Contact Lens
    Implantable Collamer Lens or ICL is a special type of lens designed to correct vision in the same way as contact lenses except they are placed permanently in the eye. These Implantable Collamer Lenses are often used to correct vision in patients unsuitable for LASIK (thin corneas, high near-sightedness, etc).

Focusing Eye Problems
Taj Medical Group

Clear vision is the result of light being focused by the cornea and the crystalline lens on to the retina. If the eye's focusing power does not correspond with its length, the retina will not receive a clear, focused image, causing a condition called Refractive Errors or Ametropia. This condition can be categorized into the following forms :
  • Myopia (Near sightedness)
    Myopia is the result of refractive power that is too strong in relation to the eye's length, from a cornea that is too curved, or from an eye that is too long. Because of this, the images of distant objects are focused on a plane in front of the retina and become blurry on the retina, causing the affected person to see more clearly up close than in the distance.

Myopia (Near sightedness)
  • Hyperopia (Far sightedness)
    Hyperopia, also known as Hypermetropia, is the result of refractive power that is too weak in relation to the eye's length, from a cornea that is too flat, or from an eye that is too short. As a result, the optical system is not able to focus the images before the light rays reach the retina, which then only receives a blurred image. Vision in the distance is not clear, and the closer the objects, the blurrier the image.

Hyperopia (Far sightedness)
  • Astigmatism
    Astigmatism is the result of the general inability of the eye to clearly focus images from any distance, because of uneven curvatures of the cornea. Instead of being spherical, it is more similar to the side of an egg. This focusing problem usually occurs along with nearsightedness, or inborn farsightedness.

Astigmatism
  • Presbyopia
    Presbyopia is a general condition affecting those over 40 years of age, whereby the muscles used in focusing start to lose the ability to change shape to focus on near objects. This condition is usually confused with inborn farsightedness (or hyperopia).

Cataract Surgery

Taj Medical Group Cataract Surgery
What is a Cataract? In the normal eye the lens inside is clear and transparent, but when a cataract develops it becomes cloudy and opaque. So the light is not focused on the retina through the lens. This leads to a blurring of vision. Cataract can be developed with age (Senile Cataract), injury to the eye (Traumatic Cataract), a child can be born with cataract (Congenital Cataract), exposure to X-ray & other radiation (e.g. UV light) can cause a cataract (Radiation Cataract). Exposure to sunlight, Diabetes and Heredity are also factors for cataract development.

The only effective treatment of a cataract is surgical removal of the lens. This delicate and precise operation may be done under local or general anaesthetic. Under an operating microscope, a small cut is made in the eye and the natural cloudy lens is removed and replaced with a plastic Intra-ocular Lens. Day case patients go home the same day but are asked to return the following day to be examined. The latest technique of phaco-emulsification uses an ultrasound tip to remove the cataract through a small incision. A folding lens implant is used and stitching is not required.

If left untreated a cataract worsens and may make the eye completely blind. In a few patients it may over-ripen (become over-mature). Then it can cause inflammation in the eye or swell up with fluid. Problems of this sought can over increase the pressure in the eye and cause discomfort. Permanent damage can also be done to the optic nerve coming into the eye causing irreversible blindness.
