This building has four floors, wherein the ground floor is dedicated to Private OPD, Privilege OPD, Phaco follow up OPD, Low vision aid center and preliminary workup room which has keratomery, A Scan, Iol master and Verion, ophthalmic equipments.
Verion, which is a pre-surgical incision planner is a latest ophthalmic equipment from Alcon company which provides detailed assessment of accurate astigmatism and corneal curvatures i.e steep and flat axis.
This helps the surgeon, to plan the incision, wherein the patient can benefit, with least refractive status, after the surgery. Private OPD has been set up to serve patients with less waiting period.
Phaco follow up OPD, is dedicated only for post operative patients who are provided medical care by separate set of doctors, to ensure least stress, maximum comfort and provision of medical assistance for the patients who have been operated upon.
