Auto-refractometer

Measures the refractive error of eyes automatically in a few seconds.


Tonopen Avia, Reichert

  • The latest hand held instrument which measures intraocular pressure with high degree of accuracy with minimal discomfort to the patient
  • Useful in the evaluation and detection of glaucoma


Auto-tonometer, Reichert

  • Latest technology in measuring intraocular pressure for glaucoma
  • Measures intraocular pressure without any contact to the eye. Rather uses air-puff to measure intraocular pressure.
  • Useful in the evaluation and detection of glaucoma


Automated visual field test, Opto

  • Maps the visual field in automated fashion
  • Very crucial test in evaluating the extent of damage to the optic nerve of the eye from different diseases including glaucoma
  • Has software to store data for future comparison for progression of disease


Ultrasound A/B scan, Sonomed

  • Ultrasound dedicated for ophthalmic use.
  • Useful in identifying problems inside the eye with high accuracy when there is media opacity like dense cataract and vitreous hemorrhage which precludes examination of the back of the eye.
  • Commonly detected problems include retinal detachment
  • The A-scan is also used to measure the required power of the intraocular lens which is to be implanted during cataract surgery


Fundus camera, Topcon

  • Takes photograph of the retina to document different diseases that affect the retina like diabetic retinopathy, retinal vein occlusion, macular disorders and many others.
  • A special type of funds photograph called fluorescein angiography is taken using this fundus camera which is vital in investigating many types of retinal diseases.


Optical coherence tomography, OCT - Coming soon

The latest state of the art technology in the evaluation of retinal and macular diseases

Treatment Facilities


Diode laser – Opto

Capable of:


YAG laser

  • For the treatment of capsular opacities after cataract surgery
  • For the treatment of narrow angle glaucoma


Operating theater – fully equipped for minor and major eye surgeries

Facilities include:

  • Operating microscopes – Zeiss and Opto with automated focus and zoom foot control
  • BIOM system for vitrectomy surgery
  • Storz Premier Phaco/Vitrectomy machine
  • Keeler cryo machine for retinal detachment surgery
