|Center for Innovative Corneal Surgery
|Cornea Clinic, is equipped with the Ziemer Z6 femtosecond laser (the only one in South India), and Wavelight EX500 Excimer laser system from
Alcon, the fastest excimer laser available.
Ziemer Z6 femtosecond laser is the only laser system to fire pulses in nanojoules (whereas all other lasers fire pulses in microjoules), which allows
atraumatic separation of corneal layers. The high repetition rate allows pulses to be placed more closely and facilitates easier separation of layers.
Wavelight EX 500 excimer laser system, is precise and fast, treating 1 diopter of error in just 1.3 seconds. The online pachymetry allows
measurement of corneal thickness during treatment. Its the only excimer laser system to allow various treatment modalities such as wavefront
optimized / wavefront guided / topography guided / Q factor guided treatments.
With the precision in microns, and ability to treat a wide variety of refractive erros including myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism. These treatments
are US FDA approved with proven safety, efficacy, predictability & safety.
|Surgical procedures are performed in a modular operation theater (all steel) maintaining high standards of sterile environment, and patient safety
as per JCI guidelines. The OT is equipped with Zeiss Lumera operating microscope, and phacoemulsification machines including Alcon Infinity, AMO
Soverign, and Bausch & Lomb Stellaris. Cataract surgery is a day care procedure, performed under topical anesthesia (ie with eyedrops), via micro
incision (2mm), no stich & no eyepad (patient wears sunglasses at the end of procedure), and is able to return home in 1-2 hours post surgery.
Wide variety of choices of intraocular lens implant such as monofocal IOL, toric IOL, multifocal IOL, toric multifocal IOL, and extended vision IOL, to
choose from for cataract surgery. Full time anesthetists are available throughout the surgical procedure to ensure optimal monitoring of vital
Moria microkeratome system is used for donor preparation for endothelial keratoplasty & lamellar keratoplasty. Ziemer Z6 femtosecond laser is also
used for laser assisted corneal transplantation surgery for increased precision and improved visual results.
