You should make sure to visit an ophthalmologist whenever there is any change in your visual ability or if you have any symptoms in your eyes. However, a regular visit is always indicated, so that if there is any disease, early identification and treatment increases the chances of a cure. However, we recommend you to visit the ophthalmologists at least once in a year and after the age of 45 years visit at least two times in a year.

The first contact with the ophthalmologist will be right after the baby is born, for the little eye test. After that, the child should be examined whenever the parents notice changes, such as allergies, trauma, strabismus or when the parents find it necessary. With the increased usage of electronic gadgets like mobile phones, tablets for study and entertainment in children, it is recommended to make a visit to the ophthalmologist at least once in a year.

The best way to prevent vision loss is to carefully monitor your diabetes or hypertension. If you have diabetes or hypertension, make an appointment with your ophthalmologist for a dilated eye exam every year (even if your vision looks good). Contact your ophthalmologist immediately if you experience sudden changes in your vision or if your vision becomes blurry, patchy, or fuzzy.

These days most of the patients prefer micro-incision phacoemulsification surgery (MICS), which is the latest cataract surgery technique, surgery conducted through sophisticated, advanced, and special instruments by a trained and experienced ophthalmologist. It’s a daycare procedure due to small incisions of 1.5 to 1.8 mm only, it heals early, uses a foldable lens, and has better results. The hospital also has small incision cataract surgery (SICS) which is considered to be more affordable to the economically weaker section of the society.

There are foldable and non-foldable lenses. Foldable lenses are being preferred due to the micro-incision or conventional phacoemulsification surgery. Foldable lenses are generally made of soft acrylic or silicon and can be injected in the eye through 1.5 to 2.2 mm incision and takes its position automatically after getting unfolded in the eye. As per the requirement and condition of the patient, the ophthalmologist recommends premium tri-focal, bi-focal and toric lenses.

Non-foldable lens (hard lens) has to be inserted in the eye through a long incision , as long as the diameter of the lens.
