See Clinic offers a complete comprehensive general ophthalmic examination and advice, and required surgery can be arranged.
For chronic diseases like Glaucoma and Diabetes which can cause irreversible damage and even blindness, the clinic offers special examinations and tests for advice and management of the same, and also expert counselling to cope with the conditions. Both these conditions in the early stages may have no symptoms or even vision problems, and hence early diagnosis and proper management can often prevent complications.
