The range of services offered by the good hospitals includes management and surgeries of/for Cataract, Cornea, Refractive errors, vitreoretinal diseases, Glaucoma etc. They also offer services related to neuro-ophthalmology, immunology, eye prosthesis, orbit surgery and Retinoblastoma (eye tumor) care. They offer various lenses, advanced corneal surgery for keratoconus and eye donation. Appointments can be booked via the hospital website itself or via telephone. The major hospital websites offer live interactive support and also patient information brochures about various eye ailments, surgeries, and post-procedural care. If you are traveling from far off places, have a chronic illness, cardiac disease etc, then it is better to contact the hospital for an appointment, mention your needs and your medical history so that you get the appropriate care and the appropriate center. For instance, although cataract surgery is simple, a patient having sinus bradycardia ( very low heart rates) or on blood thinner for heart stents, needs a good pre-surgery care plan to ensure safety and optimum use of time.
Major Eye Hospitals
In this list, Minto Eye Hospital is a Government center while the rest are all private hospitals. Most of the private hospital accept all major health insurance providers. The cost of the surgical procedures are variable and so before going there you need to check and confirm the cost of the package,implant or lens, and laser procedures etc. Most hospitals have an insurance coordinator who will explain the itemized bill for the procedure and what would be covered by the insurance provider and what part will be paid by the patient. This is more important when undergoing procedures for keratoconus, orbital lift procedures, and prosthesis.
Based on the service one needs, like Cataract surgery, Glaucoma management, LASIK, Keratoconus corrrection and other eye problems one can check the website, discuss with their family general practitioner or eye specialist and then visit the center for further management.
