Swayam Eye hospital & Retina centre is equipped with latest Phaco-Vitrectomy machine - Turbovit by Appasamy systems.
Specially engineered to deliver a high performance during cataract surgery, which can be easily performed through 1.8mm incision & a specially designed lens can be implanted through the same incision.
This machine is completely programmable (Power and Duty Cycle) & has a wireless foot switch, which enables fast & safe phaco-surgery without surgeon having to use more power. Its phaco needle has a longer stroke length, So t can easily sculpt (break) the hardest of cataracts.
Enables the surgeon to have an accurate visualisation of eye & thus enables high precision cataract and retinal surgeries.
The non-contact wide angle visualizing system has a unique advantage while performing Retinal surgeries.
Spacious, Clean And well-maintained Operation Theatre with strict sterility protocols.
The latest A/ Bscan for accuracy in calculation of IOL power.
The B scan ultrasound enables us to evaluate the posterior segment of the eye in hazy media. B scan allows us to evaluate the posterior segment in difficult situations like vitreous hemorrhage (bleeding), endophthalmitis (infection), and trauma & ocular tumours.
Used for - YAG laser capsulotomies (Post cataract surgery capsular opacification)
Used for - YAG laser Iridotomies (for glaucoma).
The lens is the part of the eye that helps focus light on the retina. The retina is the eye's light-sensitive layer that sends visual signals to the brain. In a normal eye, light passes through the lens and gets focused on the retina. To help produce a sharp image, the lens must remain clear.
A cataract is a clouding of the lens of the eye that hampers light passing through to the retina causing blurred vision. People who suffer from cataracts usually describe the condition as being similar to looking through mist. The most common cause of cataract is due to ageing. In the early stages, stronger lighting and eyeglasses may partially improve vision. At a certain point, however, surgery becomes necessary to improve vision. Today, cataract surgery is safe and very effective.
For an early cataract, vision may improve by using different eyeglasses. However, surgery is the only effective treatment & is one of the safest procedures. This treatment involves removing the cloudy lens and replacing it with an Intraocular lens.
Cataract extraction is performed by an advanced technique called Phaco-emulsification. It is also known as micro-incision cataract surgery. The machine emits ultrasound waves that soften and break up the cloudy centre of the lens so it can be removed by suction. Most cataract surgery today is done by phaco. The incision size is just 1.8mm and requires “no-injection, no-stitch, and no pad” as surgery is done under topical anaesthesia.
Once the Cataract is removed, a permanent, artificial lens, called an Intraocular lens or IOL is implanted. There are two types of IOL′s available; non-foldable and foldable. These are basically monofocal lenses designed to give enhanced distance corrected vision but the patient still has to use glasses for reading.
Non-foldable Lenses (IOL)Are made of a hard plastic material, are bigger in size & bigger incisions need to be made to insert them.
Injectable Foldable Lenses (IOL) Advantages of Foldable IOL:
1. Foldable IOLs are made up of soft Acrylic material.
2. Need very small incision for insertion of Lens in the eye usually it is 2.8mm to 1.8mm
3. Does not require stitches hence post-operative discomfort is very less
4. Very short healing time upto 4-5 days only
5. Chances of infection are minimal.
Multifocal Lenses (IOL)
Have revolutionized existing state-of-the-art cataract surgery. Multifocal IOLs helps to achieve the ultimate goal of independence from glasses.
A multifocal intraocular lens has both distance and near focal points hence reduces our dependence on reading glasses. 90% of patients who get these lenses do not need glasses for routine activity.
These IOL's are incorporated with cylindrical powers so as to correct astigmatism & reduce the patient's dependence on cylindrical glasses for distance.
MULTIFOCAL TORIC IOLs
These IOL′s correct both high astigmatism & also near vision correction, hence giving independence from glasses.
