Why Choose Ophthalmology at Westminster?

LASIK

LASIK is a pain-free, quick and safe laser surgery to correct far-sight,
near-sight and astigmatism. This procedure reshapes the cornea and directs light to be focused on the retina. It is an effective solution for better vision without prescription glasses and contact lenses.

Vision assessment | Refraction

Glaucoma

At Westminster, we believe prevention is better than cure and this is perfectly true for glaucoma. Early detection and treatment will avoid the severe damage glaucoma could cause. Our ophthalmologists will take all efforts to ensure it is treated at the right time. The following procedures and treatments will be suggested based on the need of each individual.

Vision assessment | Slit-lamp examination | Applanation tonometry

Neuro-Ophthalmology

A specialty that merges neurology and ophthalmology, this field of study focusses on diseases in the nervous system that affect the vision, control of eye movements or pupillary reflexes. Our neuro-ophthalmologists are thought leaders in this field and come with years of experience treating the most complex conditions.

Retina Care

Annual comprehensive dilated eye exams are generally recommended at the age of 60. However, we advise starting at the age of 40 due to higher risk of glaucoma among Indians and diabetics. This package is designed keeping in mind the importance of retina and the need to protect it. Constant monitoring is required as there will be minimal or no symptoms when it comes to the different conditions.

Vision Assessment
A simple test using the Snellen chart, it measures the visual acuity which is the quantitative measure of the eye’s ability to see an in-focus image at a certain distance.
Refraction
Using retinoscopy, the optometrist measures the refractive error of the eye. The results of retinoscopy are used to prescribe corrective lenses or as a basis for further refinement of the error.
Colour Vision Assessment
A series of tests done to examine the eye's ability to recognize or discriminate colours.
Slit Lamp Examination
This examination looks for any diseases or abnormalities in the anterior portion of the eye, which includes the eyelids, lashes, lens, conjunctiva, cornea, and iris.
Tear Film Evaluation
This evaluation is done primarily to analyse presence of Dry Eye Disease (DED) and also to check the health of the 'tear film' whose role is to establish a high-quality refractive surface for the cornea and its well-being.
Applanation tonometry
A diagnostic test that measures the pressure in the eye. This test is the gold standard for the assessment of intraocular pressure, which may be increased in conditions like glaucoma.
The cataract package consists of the following procedures
Vision assessment, Refraction | Slit lamp evaluation, Applanation tonometry, Contrast sensitivity assessment, Lacrimal sac evaluation, Dilated retinal examination, Keratometry, Digital biometry (A-scan) , B-scan* (in case of media opacities)
