Eye Hospital in Mumbai

Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine dealing with the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases of the eye and visual system. Problems with eye and vision can affect an individual at any stage of life. Providing eye care is complex and requires special skills of the clinician supported with appropriate technology. Eye problems are most common among the elderly, who have co-existent morbidities so having an eye care center as part of a multispecialty hospital helps us in providing safe multi-disciplinary care.

Eye Diagnosis Services  at Fortis Hospital Mumbai

A regular eye examination is vital to good vision and to achieving your full potential in everything you do. Many eye conditions can progress for years with no symptoms or indication that vision is being gradually endangered. We, at Fortis, offer a variety of tests to confirm a problem or to determine the extent or severity of the eye disorder. We facilitate comprehensive eye examinations through multiple diagnostic tests that include routine eye exams for cataracts, visual acuity testing, tonometry, slit lamp exams, eye culture, optical coherence tomography, corneal topography, dilated eye exam, and fluorescein angiogram. Two of the important eye examinations are described below.

1. Visual Acuity Testing

A visual acuity test assesses how well you can see at a standardized distance. Eye doctors have determined what “normal” vision is when reading at this distance and compare this with your vision.

2. Routine Eye Exam for Cataract

Our ophthalmologists can diagnose a cataract during a routine eye exam. First, your doctor may ask you about your symptoms and any recent changes in your vision. To detect a cataract, your ophthalmologist puts eye drops into your eye to dilate, or widen, the pupil. This allows your doctor to clearly view the lens of the eye and the retina. If a cataract is found, your doctor considers its size, your age, and your overall health in determining if treating the cataract with surgery might be the right option for you.

Uveitis

Uveitis is swelling or inflammation of the middle layer of the eye called the uvea. Though the exact cause of uveitis is not clear, viral, fungal, and bacterial infections and certain autoimmune disorders play a role. Its symptoms include severe redness in the eye, eye pain, dark floating spots in the field of vision, light sensitivity, and blurred vision. If a severe case of Uveitis is not treated early, it could lead to permanent vision loss.

Glaucoma

A glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that cause damage to the optic nerve, which transmits visual information from the eye to the brain. It occurs due to the build-up of abnormally high pressure inside the eye. This condition causes no pain and produces no symptoms in its initial stage. However, if the damage worsens, noticeable vision loss occurs and gradually leads to total blindness or even permanent vision loss.
