Glaucoma is the most serious eyesight threatening condition. It usually manifests as a painless, gradual loss of vision. The lost vision can never be recovered. However, medical or surgical treatment can prevent or retard further loss of vision.

Our super-specialties are discussed below:
Contoura Vision Surgery
Contoura Vision refractive surgery is a specialized type of LASIK surgery. Contoura Vision provides better outcomes because it corrects irregularities of the cornea that contribute to poor vision. More than 22,000 points are mapped on the cornea’s surface. Using this data, specialists at Eyemantra Eye Centre create a profile of the patient’s cornea and devise an individualized treatment unique plan for vision correction.
A study by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration reports that 92.6 percent of eyes treated using Contoura Vision surgery had vision outcomes of 6/6 or better after one year. Vision is sharper than corrective lenses and other LASIK procedures, the healing time is faster and no hospitalization is required.
Only five hospitals in India are certified to perform Contoura Vision surgery. Three are in Delhi, one is in Chennai and one is in Hyderabad. Eyemantra Eye Centre is one of these five outstanding hospitals. We were the first to introduce this procedure to the NCR, and we have performed more Contoura Vision surgeries than any other hospital in the region. Our facility is the only one in the Delhi region specifically dedicated to vision health.
LASIK surgery has been the traditional treatment to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism for decades. Several LASIK procedures are available at our vision centres. The most advanced is bladeless LASIK. In this procedure, a Femtosecond laser cuts a flap on the cornea, and an excimer laser is used to correct vision.
Blade LASIK treatment is offered to patients who may not qualify for Contoura Vision or bladeless procedures. This technique uses a fine blade to create the flap in the cornea. The excimer laser corrects vision as in bladeless procedures.
Surface laser surgery is available for patients who have thin corneas or other conditions that make the blade and bladeless LASIK treatments unsuitable. This technique removes the outer layer of the cornea, and vision correction is done like other LASIK procedures. The outer layer regenerates in three to four days.
At Eyemantra Eye Centre, we perform all types of LASIK surgery. We carefully evaluate each patient to determine the procedure that will provide the best visual outcome. We talk with you about your overall health, vision expectations, budget and lifestyle. These factors also contribute to the formulation of a treatment plan is tailored to meet your needs.
Small Incision Lenticule Extraction, a type of LASIK eye surgery, was developed in 2012. SMILE surgery corrects nearsightedness by using a femtosecond laser. Instead of making a flap, a very small incision is made on the cornea. A lenticule, a small piece of tissue, is then extracted from the cornea. Removing this tissue changes the cornea’s shape, which corrects vision. The procedure is done on an outpatient basis. Visual recovery takes about two days.
Eyemantra Eye Centre has been the vision care centre of choice for patients around the world for more than 30 years. We specialize in LASIK surgery for the removal of glasses. The specialized technique of SMILE requires both cutting-edge technology and highly trained surgeons. We are among the top providers in India in laser vision correction by the number of patients treated, training of our professional staff and dedication to continuing education.
Implantable Collamer Lenses (ICL)
Implantable Collamer Lenses, thin lenses made of a biocompatible material, are surgically implanted behind the iris. The natural lens of the eye is not removed. ICLs function like contact lenses by correcting nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. However, unlike contact lenses, ICL lenses are permanent. ICL surgery is a good option for patients who cannot undergo LASIK treatment. The procedure is reversible.
We use the EVO Visian Implantable Collamer Lens, a high-quality lens approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and manufactured in Switzerland. The lens has a high patient satisfaction. ICL surgery is done on an outpatient basis at Eyemantra Eye Centre.
Eyemantra Eye Centre has received the award for the highest number of ICL implants performed each year in India for four consecutive years, from 2014 to 2017, at the World ICL Meet.
Cataracts are common among people over 60 years old but can occur at any age. As people age, the inner lens of the eye becomes cloudy. This results in blurring, glare from lights and distortion of color.
The standard treatment for cataracts is surgery. The cloudy natural lens is removed, and an artificial lens is implanted in the eye. After surgery, vision should be clear.
At Eyemantra Eye Centre, we use technologically advanced techniques for cataract surgery, such as phacoemulsification, robotic cataract surgery, Zepto capsulotomy and micro-incision capsulotomy. We were the first to perform Zepto pulse cataract surgery in Delhi. We enlist more than 20 highly skilled doctors who are trained in all forms of cataract surgery. Our doctors conduct a thorough examination of your eyes and overall health to devise a treatment plan that best suits you.
Glaucoma is the result of fluid accumulating in the eye, which causes pressure to increase inside the eye. Eventually, the optic nerve is damaged, which causes vision loss. People may not know they have glaucoma because it is painless and symptoms occur gradually. Once vision loss occurs, it cannot be restored. For that reason, it is important to have regular eye exams.
There are several types of glaucoma. Glaucoma treatment is based on the type of glaucoma and the stage of the disease. At Eyemantra Eye Centre, we use medicines, laser surgery and conventional surgery to treat glaucoma.
The cornea, the clear layer on the surface of the eye, is a major element in vision clarity. Diseases of the cornea can affect vision and cause blindness. Corneal blindness is often preventable and sometimes reversible. Common cornea problems include ulcers, abrasions, keratoconus and degeneration of corneal tissue.
Our team of doctors includes specialists who diagnose and manage diseases of the cornea. Cornea treatments include full corneal transplant surgery or surgery to replace a diseased layer of corneal tissue. We are affiliated with eye banks of international standards for donor tissues.
The retina is a thin layer of tissue located in the back of the eye. It senses light and sends signals to the brain that are converted into images. This allows us to see. Several serious retinal disorders require treatment, including macular degeneration, retinal detachment and diabetic retinopathy.
Specialists at Eyemantra Eye Centre use several retina treatments, including medicines, laser surgery and other procedures, to stop or slow the progression of the disease. After a thorough eye exam, we discuss treatment options that will best help your situation.
Pediatric Ophthalmology and Squint Treatment
Children learn using all five senses. Vision impairments can affect physical, emotional and neural development. Children who have vision problems should be diagnosed and treated as soon as possible. Pediatric ophthalmology addresses disorders of the eye of children from newborns to teens. Common pediatric vision problems include strabismus, farsightedness, nearsightedness, lazy eye, allergies and glaucoma.
Our pediatric ophthalmologists examine, diagnose, monitor and treat diseases of children’s eyes. We have special equipment suitable for children’s eye exams. Our team of pediatric surgeons offers a warm, secure environment to help your child during and after diagnosis and treatment.
Oculoplasty and Cosmetic Enhancement
Oculoplasty focuses on the structures of the eye, including the lid, eyebrows, orbit and tear system. Oculoplastic surgeons may do reconstructive surgery, cosmetic enhancements or other procedures that correct the function or appearance of the areas within and around the eye.
Our oculoplasty eye surgeons are specialists in both medical and cosmetic treatments that enhance appearance and restore the function of these features. Procedures range from correcting drooping eyelids to treating cancer. After a thorough exam, we discuss treatment options and costs with you. Our eye hospitals offer the latest equipment and technology.
Neuro-ophthalmology combines the specialties of ophthalmology and neurology, focusing on vision problems that are caused by diseases of the nervous system. This includes double vision, problems with the optic nerve and abnormalities of the pupils. Certain diseases, such as multiple sclerosis, are treated by neuro-ophthalmologists.
At Eyemantra Eye Centre, our neuro-ophthalmologists conduct specialized tests to diagnose the underlying problem. Treatment includes medicines, eye exercises and surgery. We discuss treatment options with you and devise a plan that addresses your needs.
Computer Vision Syndrome
Sitting at a computer or using other electronic devices for prolonged periods of time takes a toll on vision. You may experience headaches, watering eyes, blurred vision, neck pain or a feeling of grittiness in the eyes. These symptoms suggest computer vision syndrome. The glare of the screen, reduced blinking and constant refocusing contribute to the problem.
Computer vision syndrome treatment includes lifestyle changes that ease eye strain. It may also include getting glasses for computer use and using drops to keep eyes moist. Our ophthalmologists conduct a thorough exam and recommend ways to ease these symptoms. It is important to consult an eye doctor if you have any of these symptoms because they may indicate other eye problems.
Low Vision Treatment and Aids
Patients who experience vision loss that cannot be corrected with medication, glasses, contact lenses or surgery are considered to have low vision. Vision impairment leading to low vision may be a result of cataracts, glaucoma, blind spots, poor peripheral vision, diabetic retinopathy or other eye problems.
After a thorough exam to define the problem, our team of doctors can help you find ways to cope with low vision. Visual aids and text-to-speech technology can help you undertake daily tasks. We also suggest ways to improve lighting, reduce glare and enhance text for reading.
