At BAPS Yogiji Maharaj Hospital, we believe in specialized care that focuses on our patients’ needs. As a part of our endeavor to provide comprehensive services we have clinics that specialize in specific eye conditions.
Cataract is the clouding of the natural crystalline lens and typically occurs because of ageing, although other reasons may be prolonged use of steroids, exposure to ultra violet and associated health problems like diabetes and eye injuries.
Surgery is the only known effective treatment for cataract removal. All cataract surgeries are aimed at removal of the cloudy natural lens and replacing it with an Intra Ocular Lens (IOL). At BAPS Yogiji Maharaj Hospital Phacoemulsification is performed (No stitch surgery) and a foldable IOL is inserted. There are multiple IOL choices available for the surgery.
Glaucoma is a disease of the eye which exhibits a typical optic neuropathy which results in progressive visual field loss. The most important risk factor is raised intraocular pressure. Risk factors for glaucoma include age above 40 years, diabetes, myopia, mature cataract, trauma, certain retinal diseases and a family history of glaucoma.
At BAPS Yogiji Maharaj Hospital the patient is investigated thoroughly with use of Perimetry, Ocular coherence tomography (OCT) and then the treatment is personalized to the patient to maintain his vision and quality of life.

Retina is the neurosensory layer of the eye which is present inside and at the back of the eye. It is on this layer that an image seen by the eye is formed, which is converted to nerve signals and transferred to the brain. Hence person with a normal eye but with a retina disease will have poor vision.
