A cataract is a disease that mostly occurs in the elderly population. Cataract requires immediate doctor advice to get the treatment. EyeMantra offers laser automated technology for Cataract surgery which is a bladeless and painless method. EyeMantra doctors have successfully treated cataract patients and again brought back life to their vision.
Refractive defects include myopia, hypermetropia, and astigmatism which generally occurs due to refractive errors leading to vision defects. Refractive services include Lasik surgery which is a tried and tested method for refractive errors. EyeMantra’s dedicated team of doctors has years of experience in treating the patients.
Lasik surgery is the best way to get rid of the eyeglasses. EyeMantra hospitals offer comprehensive detailed eye check-ups to check whether the patient is suitable for LASIK surgery or not. The check-up ensures that the patient is completely fit to undergo treatment. EyeMantra doctors have a decade of experience in performing surgery.
Glaucoma occurs when the optic nerve gets damaged due to intraocular pressure which can result in vision loss also depending on the severity. Doctors need to be consulted immediately for better chances of recovery. EyeMantra specialist doctors have a wide range of experience in dealing with Glaucoma which requires treatment combined with psychological counseling.
Retinal tearing and retinal detachment are treated using retinal surgery which is combined using laser photocoagulation and retinal freezing cryopexy techniques. EyeMantra offers treatment that is best suited to patient requirements. EyeMantra eye doctors have successfully performed retinal surgeries without any complications.
