Ophthalmic Surgery

Ophthalmologic surgery involves the surgical treatment of the eye or any part of the eye. The procedure is most commonly used for treating retinal defects, repairing eye muscles, or removing cataracts or cancer. Using state-of-the-art medical and surgical techniques and highly skilled surgeons, these surgeries restore or improve vision in people of all ages.


Neuro-Ophthalmology at Choithram Hospital focuses on neurological problems related to the eye. When Neuro Ophthalmic conditions are not treated on time, they can damage the optic nerves, resulting in vision impairment and even irreversible damage. In neuro-ophthalmology, optic neuritis, papilledema, ischemic optic neuropathy, compressive optic neuropathy, inflammatory and infectious optic neuropathies, diabetic neuropathy, and hereditary and traumatic optic neuropathies are common occurred conditions.

Uveitis is an inflammation or swelling of the middle layer of the eye, called the uvea. A number of viral, fungal, and bacterial infections, as well as certain autoimmune disorders, may contribute to uveitis. A few of its symptoms include redness in the eyes, eye pain, light sensitivity, and blurred vision. Uveitis can lead to permanent vision loss if not treated early.


Glaucoma is an eye disease characterized by damage to the optic nerve, which transmits visual information to the brain. In this condition, abnormally high pressure builds up inside the eye. When it is in its initial stages, this condition does not cause any pain or produce any symptoms. If the damage worsens, noticeable vision loss occurs and eventually leads to blindness or even permanent vision loss.
