On your first visit at our clinic, you will be thoroughly examined and treated as deemed necessary by our team.
On first and then on subsequent visits, our trained optometrist will be examining you first where he/she will take relevant medical history, check your vision, spectacle power, intraocular pressure etc.
Then your eyes (pupils) will be dilated if needed . This will help your doctor to examine your retina and eyes thoroughly and make a proper diagnosis. It is always recommended that you do not drive after getting your eyes dilated. You may not be able to do your near work for next 4-6 hrs after dilatation. So kindly plan your visit accordingly and bring along someone to help you drive back once your eyes are dilated.
Once pupils are dilated, your doctor will examine your eyes thoroughly and make a diagnosis. We might need to do some additional tests like FFA/OCT/B scan to make a definite diagnosis, which can be done on the same visit. Once your treatment plan is made by us, treatment can be started depending on the urgency.
If surgery is decided for you, then you will be directed to our councillor where you can discuss about the details of the surgery and book the date for the surgery.
