Eye surgery, also known as ocular surgery, is surgery performed on the eye or its adnexa, typically by an ophthalmologist. The eye is a very fragile organ, and requires extreme care before, during, and after a surgical procedure to minimise or prevent further damage. An expert eye surgeon is responsible for selecting the appropriate surgical procedure for the patient and taking the necessary safety precautions. Eye surgery is used to treat a variety of conditions, including cataracts, glaucoma, detached retinas, retinal tears, diabetic retinopathy, and nearsightedness or farsightedness.
Almost all patients with retinal detachments must have surgery to place the retina back in its proper position. A vitrectomy uses small instruments inside the eye to remove the clear vitreous jelly inside the eye. Any holes in the retina are then lasered, and the eye is filled with a large gas or oil bubble to keep the retina in place while the laser treatment heals. Retinal surgery is usually painless and performed while you remain awake and comfortable. Advances in technology have decreased the length of surgery, making outpatient eye surgery possible. Before the procedure begins, you will be given anesthetic eye drops that numb the eyes.
A cataract is an opacification or cloudiness of the eye's crystalline lens due to aging, disease, or trauma that typically prevents light from forming a clear image on the retina. If visual loss is significant, surgical removal of the lens may be warranted, with lost optical power usually replaced with a plastic intraocular lens. Owing to the high prevalence of cataracts, cataract extraction is the most common type of eye surgery. Cataract surgery is not painful, and there is little or no discomfort involved. Eye drops are used to numb the eye prior to the surgery.
Pediatric surgery is defined as the diagnostic, operative, and postoperative surgical care for children with congenital and acquired anomalies and diseases, whether developmental, inflammatory, neoplastic, or traumatic. If your child has an illness, injury, or disease that requires surgery, a pediatric surgeon has the experience and qualifications to treat your child. Surgical problems seen by pediatric surgeons are often quite different from those commonly seen by adult or general surgeons. Special training in pediatric surgery is essential.
Corneal conditions can lead to visual deterioration and even complete vision loss. It is necessary to have your eyes evaluated regularly and seek treatment and other options. We can reduce the symptoms and risks to your vision caused by corneal disease or trauma. Corneal surgery is a surgical procedure to replace part of your cornea with corneal tissue from a donor. Your cornea is the transparent, dome-shaped surface of your eye. It's where light enters your vision and is a large part of your eye's ability to see clearly.
People with ocular surface issues can be divided into two categories: Those who have lid disease and those who don't have lid disease. In the people who don't have lid disease, we are primarily concerned with dryness because patients who have dry eye will always be more symptomatic after any ocular surgery, whether it is cataract surgery or refractive surgery.
