The unit provides comprehensive services for management of paediatric and adult cataracts, refractive errors (surgical management) vitreo-retinal disorders, strabismus and neuro-ophthalmic disorders. The unit runs many specialty clinics such as Lens clinic, Retina clinic, Uveitis clinic, Squint Clinic and Neuro-ophthalmology Clinic.

All kinds of paediatric cataract cases are seen and managed in the lens clinic. These include bilateral congenital cataracts, syndromic cataracts, metabolic, complicated and unilateral cataracts. Long term post operative care including needed refractive correction and amblyopia treatment is also provided. Complicated adult cataract cases, such as those with subluxated cataracts are also seen and managed. The lens clinic is run on every Thursday at 2pm for all lens cases dealing with both pediatric and complicated adult cataracts.

The unit also carries out state-of-the-art refractive procedures. It deals with all the refractive cases for correction of myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. All modern cataract and refractive surgeries using the latest lasers like femtosecond LASIK, femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) and small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) are carried out at very nominal cost. Other refractive procedures such as ICL surgery, Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), and intrastromal corneal ring segments (ICRS) are also performed as indicated.

The aim of the Retina clinic is to evaluate patients with medical and surgical retinal problems and plan their appropriate management. Certain key areas of specialization in medical retina are management of Diabetic Retinopathy, Age Related Macular Degeneration, Vascular Occlusions and Retinal Degenerations and Dystrophies. Surgical retina cases such as those with simple or complex retinal detachments, macular hole, intraocular foreign body and endophthalmitis etc are managed with most modern micro-incision vitreo-retinal surgical platforms. The surgeons of the unit are adept at managing all these complex cases using the latest microsurgical techniques and lasers. Laser treatment of various disorders and Anti-VEGF injections are also carried out in this unit. The retina clinic runs on two days i.e., Thursday and Friday from 2pm that caters to various new and old follow up cases related to retina.

The Uvea clinic deals with cases of intraocular inflammation. These could be of infective or autoimmune aetiology. Long term treatment strategies for these chronic disorders are worked out with the help of state-of-the-art ophthalmic diagnostic equipment. The uvea clinic runs on Monday from 2pm.

Simple and complex squint surgeries including inferior oblique, superior oblique surgeries and surgeries for nerve palsies are carried out in this unit. The squint clinic runs every Wednesday from 2 pm where various ocular motility disorders are diagnosed and advised for proper management. The unit also has a dedicated Neuro-ophthalmology clinic where referrals from different units and also other departments are evaluated, and appropriate management strategies implemented.

Quality post graduate education, training and research are our other focus areas. Regular assessments, academic exercises and group teaching exercises including ward rounds are carried out regularly for proper education and training of the residents.
