Some of the most common eye care treatments are described below. 

Cataract Surgery

Cataract is clouding of the lens inside the eye, causing vision loss that cannot be corrected with glasses, contact lenses or corneal refractive surgery like LASIK.
In laser cataract surgery, an advanced femtosecond laser replaces or assists use of a hand-held surgical tool for the following steps in cataract surgery: The corneal incision. The anterior Capsulotomy. Lens and cataract fragmentation.

Strabismus Surgery

Strabismus surgery loosens or tightens eye muscles, which changes the alignment of the eyes relative to each other. In standard strabismus surgery, the muscle is weakened, strengthened or moved and a permanent knot is placed. This surgery is best for someone in whom strabismus developed in adulthood after previously normal eye alignment. Strabismus surgery is a one-day procedure. The patient spends only a few hours in the hospital with minimal preoperative preparation.

Corneal Transplant Surgery

Corneal transplantation, also known as corneal grafting, is a surgical procedure where a damaged or diseased cornea is replaced by donated corneal tissue (the graft). The cornea, or the bulge that protects the pupil, is also vital for focusing light waves in a process called refraction. Most visual issues and problems involve refraction errors. The cornea is vital to vision. The need to replace or transplant cornea may be due to several factors, including ulcers, disease, or damage. A cornea transplant is known in medical terms as Keratoplasty.

Glaucoma Surgery

Glaucoma can be treated with eye drops, pills, laser surgery, traditional surgery or a combination of these methods. The goal of any treatment is to prevent loss of vision, as vision loss from glaucoma is irreversible. Glaucoma is damage to the optic nerve. The condition causes increased production and imbalance of eye fluid called aqueous humor. This excessive aqueous humor increases pressure in the eye and reduces the eye’s ability to function properly. Glaucoma clogs canals that drain eye fluid and the blocked canals will cause vision loss. Glaucoma surgery is aimed at treating Glaucoma diseases.

Lasik Eye Surgery

LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) is a popular refractive surgery used for treatment of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. In LASIK, the form of the cornea is changed permanently in order to improve the person’s vision. It is an outpatient surgical procedure that usually takes about fifteen minutes per eye. The aim of Lasik eye surgery is to reduce the individual’s dependency on glasses or contact lenses.

Diabetic Retinopathy Treatment

The Early Treatment for Diabetic Retinopathy Study has found that laser surgery for macular edema reduces the incidence of moderate visual loss (doubling of visual angle or roughly a 2-line visual loss) from 30% to 15% over a 3-year period.Diabetic retinopathy is diabetes-related damage to the light-sensitive retina in the back of the eye. As diabetes progresses, chronic high blood sugar levels cause changes that damage the tiny blood vessels in the retina, which makes them leak fluid or hemorrhage (bleed).

Refractive Eye Surgery

Refractive surgery refers to surgical procedures that correct common vision problems (nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia) to reduce your dependence on prescription eyeglasses and contact lenses. Most types of vision correction surgery reshape your cornea, the clear front part of your eye. The most widely performed type of refractive surgery is LASIK where a laser is used to reshape the cornea. Photo Refractive Keratectomy (PRK) and Vision correction surgery are two other known treatments for refractive eyes.

Eye Examination

An eye examination is a series of tests performed by an ophthalmologist (medical doctor), optometrist, or orthoptist assessing vision and ability to focus on and discern objects, as well as other tests and examinations pertaining to the eyes. A comprehensive eye exam can take an hour or more, depending on the doctor and the number and complexity of tests required to fully evaluate your vision and the health of your eyes.


Blepharoplasty is a surgery to repair droopy eyelids that may involve removing excess skin, muscle and fat. As you age, your eyelids stretch, and the muscles supporting them weaken. As a result, excess fat may gather above and below your eyelids, causing sagging eyebrows, droopy upper lids and bags under your eyes, which will make you look older. Severely sagging skin around your eyes can reduce your side vision (peripheral vision), especially the upper and outer parts of your field of vision. Blepharoplasty can reduce or eliminate these vision problems and make your eyes appear younger and more alert.

Lid Deformity Surgery

There are many deformities that can affect the eyelids. These can be congenital, acquired or posttraumatic. The most commonly seen problems are ptosis (droopiness of the eyelid), entropion (the lid rolls inward), and ectropion (the lid rolls outward). While Treatments for ptosis and entropion are surgical, Treatment for ectropion may include the use of artificial tears and ointments to relieve symptoms, but surgical correction is needed to correct the lid position.

Oculoplastics, Orbit and Reconstructive Surgery

The Oculoplastic/Orbital service provides examinations, diagnosis and treatment of disorders, anomalies and injuries of the eyelids, tear ducts and the orbit (bony structure around the eye). The field of oculoplastic surgery combines the precision and microsurgery of ophthalmology with the aesthetic and reconstructive concepts of plastic surgery. Oculoplastic surgery is also done for cosmetic purposes.

Oriental Eyelid Surgery

Also known as double eyelid surgery or Asian blepharoplasty, this surgery involves carefully reshaping the upper eyelid skin to create a more defined crease. It is important to recognize that the Oriental eyelid is very different from the Western occidental eyelid with a different anatomy.

Puffy Eyelids Surgery

Eye bags are typically a cosmetic problem, although in some cases extreme puffiness can visually impair sufferers. For patients whose eye bags are caused by bulging or excess fat under the eyes a surgical procedure is recommended to get rid of the bags. In an eye bag surgery, the fat under the eyes is removed or adjusted to eliminate the bags. While bags underneath the eye tend to be the most prevalent, eye bags can form around the upper eyelid as well.
