Cataract is the most common cause of reversible blindness. Paediatric cataracts often occur because of abnormal lens development during pregnancy. Genetic problems, infections, long term steroid medication usage cause childhood cataracts. We provide phacoemulsification and lens implantation surgery with a wide range of artificial intraocular lenses.
Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is a potentially blinding eye disorder that can affect premature infants weighing 1500 grams or less, who are born before 32 weeks of gestation. The smaller the baby is at birth, the more likely he/she will develop ROP. ROP affects the growing blood vessels in the light-sensitive layer at the back of the eye (retina).
