Cataract surgery is performed when the patient feels they can no longer see well enough to enjoy hobbies, have difficulty driving due to decreased vision and /or glare or are not able to do the things in life that are necessary. The natural lens becomes cloudy, which causes the decreased vision and is removed and replaced with a permanent intraocular lens implant to restore sight. More information
Multifocal lens implants
Multifocal lens implants are an optional lens implant that reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses after cataract surgery. More information
Glaucoma is an eye disease often associated with a buildup of internal eye pressure (intraocular pressure or IOP), which damages the optic nerve that transmits visual information to the brain.
Glaucoma surgeries allow the natural fluid inside the eye to be vented away lowering intraocular pressure. Various techniques are available in Glaucoma surgery, including, Laser treatment, and best suitable techniques varies from patient to patient. More information
Strabismus is a visual problem in which the eyes are not aligned properly and point in different directions. Surgery may be recommended to improve the chance of restoring or promoting normal binocular vision. More information
Eyelid surgery may be indicated in various problems, like drooping eye lids (Ptosis), eye lid malpositions causing eye irritation, etc. Eye lid surgeries are simple out-patient surgeries and recovery is very fast. Also, in cases where there is injury to the eyelid or the skin around the eye, surgical intervention may be required.
When an eye injury does occur, have an ophthalmologist or other medical doctor examine the eye as soon as possible, even if the injury seems minor at first.
A serious eye injury is not always immediately obvious. Delaying medical attention can cause the damaged areas to worsen and could result in permanent vision loss or blindness. More information
Dr. Mahajan is trained to recognize retinal diseases that require surgery, and to refer patients to a knowledgeable, well-trained vitreo-retinal surgeon if necessary.
Laser treatment of diabetic retinopathy
Diabetic retinopathy, the most common diabetic eye disease, occurs when blood vessels in the retina change. Sometimes these vessels swell and leak fluid or even close off completely. In other cases, abnormal new blood vessels grow on the surface of the retina. Laser surgery can stop the growth of abnormal new vessels and reduce macular swelling. Diabetic patients are referred to suitable Laser treatment centers when required. More information
