Ophthalmology

Ophthalmology is a specialty offering medical and surgical treatment for eye disorders. At Apollo Bramwell Hospital we offer international standards of treatment for both common and complex eye disorders.

In keeping with our commitment to provide world class healthcare, we at Apollo Bramwell bring together talented ophthalmic surgeons with the best modern technology and working environment to ensure the highest standard of patient care.

The Apollo Bramwell Hospital offers the latest methods of medical and surgical treatment including:

  1. Cataract removal (Phacoemulsification with foldable intraocular lens Implantation)
    Our centre uses the best quality lens in the world (Acrysoft foldable IOL from alcon). Surgery is performed through a small incision which is specially perfected so that it closes without stitches. This reduces the astigmatism , thereby minimizing the prescription needed for glasses after the surgery. The surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure and patients can return home the same day.
