MICS(MICROINCISION CATARACT SURGERY) LAUREATE WORLD PHACO MACHINE:
At Navashakthi Nethralaya we have an excellent Phaco machine whose ultrasound probe delivers energy into the eye that is used to break
up the cataract to facilitate emulsification and aspiration.The ability to customize and modify phaco settings will enable surgeons the
possibility of improved outcomes and more efficient cataract surgery.
RETIKARE ANTERIOR VITRECTOMY MACHINE:
We have an efficient Anterior Vitrectomy machine for unavoidable vitreous surge into the anterior chamber during the cataract
surgery. It is used for cutting and suction of the vitreous. It clears the area from the vitreous and avoid further complications
Zeiss MEL 80 Lasik machine:
It can provide Traditional LASIK and Bladeless and Flapless Advanced surface ablation. It also has the unique software to
provide crystal clear vision even to those patients above 40 yrs. It has a high ablation rate and high-performance eye tracker
system. All the parameters of this modern work platform are oriented towards increasing efficiency, achieving optimum treatment
results and the rapid recovery of vision.
CORNEA COLLAGEN CROSS LINKING C3R:
For efficient treatment of Keratoconus, Navashakthi Nethralaya has Cornea Collagen Crosslinking C3R procedure with instilling
Riboflavin and irradiating the cornea with UVA light. Hence by increasing the corneal stiffness, the procedure is slowing and
halting the evolution of Kearatoconus.
For eye watering problems due to blocked duct or lacrimal sac, Conventional DCR(Dacryocystorhinostomy) procedure is done which
is of long duration and with complications. In our eye hospital we have LASER DCR, a very thin optical fiber is inserted into
the tube, and laser energy is delivered to cut through both the bony and soft tissue and into the nose. This opening is then
enlarged. Thus a new tear drain is created. Most of the disadvantages of conventional DCR surgery are avoided.
At Navashakthi Nethralaya, we have Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography to evaluate the narrow angles in Glaucoma,
helps patient to understand the condition his eye, evaluate iris after iridotomy procedure (making a hole in iris by laser), and
pachymetery(thickness of the cornea).
SLIT LAMP PHOTOGRAPHY:
At Navashakthi Nethralaya to document the condition of the anterior segement(the front part of the eye), we have Slit Lamp
Photography which captures and prints the images of the eye. It helps the patients to understand better their condition of the
eye and in follow ups to know whether the condition is getting better from the previous state.
We have the best Fundus Photography to document the fundus changes mainly used for Diabetic Retinopathy(mild, moderate and
severe changes) which also helps patient understand the condition and to monitor the progress in follow ups.
OCT (OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY):
We have the spectral domain optoview OCT which is the best in the world to measure the thickness in the retina to identify the
retinal conditions which is sometimes difficult to pick up clinically otherwise. It is used in diagnosing Retinal conditions-
Macular hole, Macular pucker, Vitreomacular traction, Macular edema, Detachments of the neurosensory retina and retinal pigment
epithelium, ARMD etc. Apart from the retina, Optic nerve Nerve fiber analysis in relation to Glaucoma gives good results in
evaluation. In Anterior segment OCT images of the Cornea, Anterior chamber, Iris and Angles can be visualised.
Among the therapeutic Retinal treatment we have;
Argon Retinal lasers:
It prevent the loss of vision in conditions like severe Diabetic retinopathy, macular odema and retinal tears/holes. Both
slitlamp assisted (for posterior, central part of the retinal lesions)and LIO-Laser Indirect Ophthalmoscopy (for peripheral retinal
lesions) are available in our center.
Nd Yag lasers:
Apart from using it to treat Posterior Capsular Opacification(after cataracts), it is also used for peripheral iridotomies for
narrow/angle closure suspects to facilitate the fluid draining from the eye and hence prevents build of pressure in the eye.
VISUAL FIELDS (HUMPHREY VISUAL FIELD ANALYSER):
Our center has the best visual fields analyser to detect and monitor the progression of Glaucoma. It assess the field of vision
which is the function of the Optic nerve, affected in Glaucoma.
The Intraocular Pressure related to Glaucoma is correlated with the corneal thickness. we have sophisticated instruments to measure
the corneal thickness.
We have radiofrequency ablator for bladeless oculoplastic surgeries used with ease, reduces the surgery time, gives clean surgical
field due to adequate hemostasis and used with minimal side effects and complications.
PRISM BARS AND RAF RULER:
The PRISM BAR set includes both a vertical and horizontal prism bar which provides accurate measurement of deviation of
the eye. It is suitable for assessing both distance and near angle of deviation by the prism and cover test. The bars may also be
used for the measurement of fusional reserves and vergence exercises.
RAF RULE instrument is used for determining the objective and subjective convergence points, examining the accommodation and
determining the master eye. The RAF Rule is useful for both diagnosis and treatment.
