Department of Ophthalmology

Covering every aspect to heal your eyes

A general physician may refer a patient to an ophthalmologist if he or she shows symptoms of eye infections, optic nerve problems, cataracts, or other eye problems. Our Ophthalmic Department at FUH delivers quality eye care in an ethical and humanistic manner.

Our ophthalmologists are trained and qualified to use the latest technology to offer quality medical eye care. They can diagnose, prevent, and treat of almost all eye conditions and visual problems.

In addition to caring for the eyes and vision, our ophthalmologists have undergone medical training that enables them to notice symptoms of conditions that do not directly relate to the eye. In such instances, they can refer people for appropriate treatment to the right departments. They also take part in some scientific research that focuses on the causes of eye and vision conditions, and potential treatments.

The Ophthalmic Department offers medical and surgical treatment of:

Cataract

Cornea and Ocular Surface Disease

  • Dry Eye
  • Pterygium
  • Keratoconus
  • Corneal Scarring and Edema
  • Corneal Infection

Diabetic Eye Diseases and Retinal Disorder

  • Diabetic Retinopathy
  • Age-related Macular Degeneration
  • Flashes and Floaters
  • Macular Holes
  • Retinopathy of Prematurity
  • Retinal Detachment and Retinal Tears
  • Vascular Occlusion
  • Inherited Retinal Disease

Glaucoma

  • Primary Open Angle Glaucoma
  • Acute Angle Dosure Glaucoma
  • Neovascular Glaucoma

Inflammatory Eye Disease

  • Acute and Chronic Uveitis
  • Scleritis and Episcleritis

Genetic/Hereditary Eye Disorder

  • Retinitis Pigmentosa
  • Fuch’s Dystrophy

Pediatric Eye Disease

  • Congenital Cataract
  • Squint and extraocular muscles misalignment

Lids, Adnexia

  • Blepharitis
  • Chalazia
  • Conjunctivitis

Optic Neuritis and Papilloedema

The Outpatient Clinic utilizes cutting-edge diagnostic equipment, including:

OCT Angiograph

  • Measure and track change in FAZ area, flow area, and vessel density
  • Visualize vessels of the Retina and Choroid non-invasively
  • Macular change analysis
  • Glaucoma: Guided progression analysis and comprehensive tools for glaucoma management
  • High-resolution visualization capabilities

Clinical Applications​

  • Diabetic Retinopathy and Retinal Vascular Occlusion
  • Glaucoma: advanced RPE analysis to track retinal pigment epithelial integrity and ganglion cell analysis to assess glaucomatous loss in the macula that may not be evident in the peripapillary region
  • Papilloedema in cases of increased intracranial tension

Fundus Camera

  • Inspect anomalies associated with diseases that affect the eye and monitor their progression
  • Identify glaucoma and multiple sclerosis and monitor disease processes such as macular degeneration

Pentacam

  • The gold standard for anterior segment tomography
  • Early Keratoconus detection
  • Efficient Keratoconus staging and progression based on conclusive measurement results
  • Exact measuring data gathered by the Pentacam assists in selecting the right premium – IOL after cataract surgery
  • IOL power calculation for virgin and post-corneal refractive eye

Automated Perimetry for Glaucoma Diagnosis

  • Measures your field of vision, which is the entire area you can see while your eyes are focused on a certain point

Specular Microscopy

  • Specular microscopy is a non-invasive imaging technique that produces high magnification images of the corneal endothelium
  • These images accurately monitor endothelial disease and aid in surgical co-management

Clinical Applications​

  • Corneal Dystrophies
  • Corneal Scar

IOL Maste

  • Gold standard in optical biometry (biometry is the process of measuring the power of the cornea (keratometry) and the length of the eye and using this data to determine the ideal intraocular lens power)
  • Measurement success ratio that is up to 20% higher than that of other optical biometers

Clinical Applications​

  • Precise calculation of intraocular lens power before cataract surgery

Ocular Ultrasound (A/B Scan)

  • A quick, non-invasive test routinely used in clinical practice to assess the structural integrity and pathology of the eye

Clinical Applications​

  • Retinal Detachment in opaque media
  • Intraocular tumors
  • Measurement of axial length of the globe

Retinal Argon Laser

For the treatment of:

  • Diabetic Retinopathy and Maculopathy
  • Retinal Vein OcclusionsPeripheral Retinal Breaks
  • Retinal New Vascularization
  • Retinopathy of Prematurity

Yag Laser

For the treatment of:

  • Posterior Capsule Opacification after cataract surgery (Capsulotomy)
  • Acute angle-closure glaucoma (Iridotomy)
