CORNEA AND REFRACTIVE SURGERY SERVICE

The Cornea and Refractive Surgery Service is primarily devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of corneal diseases, cataracts and laser vision correction. The latest techniques and state of the art equipments are used to perform microincision sutureless cataract surgeries, lamellar and penetrating keratoplasties, and anterior segment reconstruction.

Corneal transplantation and anterior segment reconstruction are routinely performed.

Recently, Boston K-Pro keratoprosthesis (artificial cornea transplantation) has been added to our surgical procedures platform.

The most up-to-date technology is used to treat refractive disorders such as myopia (nearsightedness) hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism, and presbyopia. Wave-front optimized, topolink and custom technology are utilized in this process. Pre-treatment evaluation by corneal topography and corneal pachymetry is routinely done; Conventional and Femtosecond LASIK, PRK and PTK are performed using the newly developed high frequently rate excimer laser. The most recent techniques in the treatment of keratoconus with standard and customized cross linking and intracorneal rings are offered. Specialized contact lens fitting is available.

GLAUCOMA SERVICE

The Glaucoma service is dedicated to early detection and treatment of glaucoma in its various types. Most up-to-date equipment consisting of the newly developed optic nerve head analyzer by OCT and GDX and automated visual fields are used for the detection and follow-up of glaucoma. Newest laser techniques by SLT are performed to treat open angle, angle closure and iris plateau glaucoma. Mircosurgical procedures are performed by our glaucoma specialists to treat visually disabling open angle glaucoma by trabeculectomy and potentially blinding neovascular glaucoma by tubeshunts.

RETINA SERVICE

The Retina Service provides the best diagnostic and therapeutic technology in diseasesaffecting the retina and vitreous including diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachment, trauma and macular degeneration. Digital fluorescein angiography provides high resolution detailed and instantaneous documentation of retinal disorders. High quality ultrasonography gives an accurate diagnostic evaluation of the posterior structures when the retina is not visualized.

Ocular electroretinography and electroculography are used to test retinal cell function. Visual evoked potential is available to evaluate optic nerve disorders. The high resolution Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) provides excellent documentation of retinal structures. Innovative therapy with anti-VEGF agents is also applied to treat various types of retinal vascular disorders. Innovative laser surgery with multiple selective wavelengths is performed to treat different retinal layers in retinal vascular diseases and macular degeneration. The recently developed micropulsed laser is used to treat certain types of diabetic retinopathy. State of the art microsurgical techniques are performed by our experienced retina subspecialists to treat retinal detachment, diabetic retinopathy, epiretinal membranes and macular holes.

PEDIATRIC OPHTHALMOLOGY

The Pediatric Ophthalmology Service offers the most advanced techniques in the evaluation and treatment of ocular disorders affecting the pediatric age group including strabismus, lacrymal problems, congenital cataracts and congenital glaucoma. Our team of experienced subspecialists participates in the management of infantile and adult strabismus. Adjustable strabismus surgery is available to ensure better results. Latest techniques are employed for surgical treatment and close follow-up of infants with congenital cataracts and glaucoma. Disorders of the lacrymal system are treated using advanced procedures to insure the highest rate of success.

OCULOPLASTIC SERVICE

The Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery service at the Eye & Ear Hospital focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of functional disorders of the eyelids, lacrimal system and orbits. Moreover, it addresses cosmetic concerns to improve the contour and appearance of the eyes, lids and brows.

Indications for surgical intervention could be diagnostic, cosmetic or therapeutic.

Eyelids procedures include:

  • Blepharoplasty to remove excessive skin or subcutaneous fat
  • Ptosis repair for droopy eyelids
  • Repair of eyelids malposition: whether the lids are rolled in towards the eye (entropion) or rolled out away from the eye (ectropion)
  • Excision of simple eyelid lesions or eyelid tumors with secondary reconstruction
  • Repair of traumatic eyelid lacerations
  • Botox injections for blepharospasm

Tear duct procedures:

Surgeries that involve the lacrimal apparatus such as DCR (Dacryocystorhinostomy), Canaliculotomy (slitting of the lacrimal punctum and canaliculus) are done with the purpose of treating excessive tearing secondary to tear duct obstructions.

Orbital procedures:

Our service also offers treatment of orbital inflammations and orbital surgeries to repair traumatic bone fractures, as well as biopsy or full excision of tumors in and around the eyes.

In the case of a painful non seeing eye, the eye can be removed with insertion of ocular or orbital prosthetics(artificial eye implants). Such procedures include enucleation(removal of the eye, the eye muscles and remaining orbital contents left intact), or evisceration (removal of the eye's contents, keeping the scleral shell intact).
