What is the itinerary of the service package ?:During your consultation visit, You will be informed about your pre-operative laboratory examinations and cardiopulmonary clearance schedule. The pre-operative investigation includes some blood tests and examination by the physician to determine your fitness for surgery. It also includes specialized eye tests to find out the IOL which is most suitable for your eye. It takes between 1-3 hours for the entire testing. After which, you will be given the date for surgery. On the day of surgery, the cataract surgery itself takes about 15-30 minutes depending on the type of cataract, You can expect to be at the hospital for approximately two to four hours, taking into account the preparation and post-operative observation (recovery period), as well as postoperative instructions. You will need to rest in a recovery area immediately after the surgery, until the effects of the sedation or anaesthesia wear off. This usually takes about 30 minutes to an hour. After you receive instructions on how to care for your eyes at home, you can go home.
What exactly are our services ?:In robotic laser cataract surgery, a large part of the cataract surgery can be automated with a computer-controlled laser instead of hand-held instruments. This includes the creation of the initial surgical incisions in the cornea, the capsulotomy, and the fragmenting (breaking up) of the lens. The femtosecond laser may also produce incisions within the peripheral cornea to aid the correction of pre-existing astigmatism. The lens which has already been broken up into small bits is then removed by the surgeon and the intraocular lens is implanted. This kind of surgery is known to have lesser complications because of improved precision and repeatability of surgical steps which could enhance the results and is also a safer option for complex cataracts.
