A thorough pre-operative evaluation and attention to detail, are the key to a positive outcome of any successful procedure. Our top of the line diagnostic equipment ensure that there are no stones left unturned.
Rule out any disease of the vision center of the retina
Macula (vision center of the back of the eye) is a ball point pen tip sized tissue responsible for all our fine vision! Subtle disorders of the macula can have a dramatic impact on the final visual outcome, and cannot be picked up by doctor’s clinical examination. OCT detects these subtle disorders and helps guide the right course of action.
Detects eyes requiring special attention and precautions
The corneal endothelium (inner most layer of our cornea) is responsible for its transparency. The energy used in Cataract surgery can damage the endothelial cells. Specular microscopy is a high end diagnostic that detects low endothelial cell count and vulnerable cases.
