Eye Care Services
The department of Ophthalmology, St Stephen’s hospital, was conceived with the need to provide service to those with impairment of sight and attempt to restore what perhaps is the most valuable of all the senses, that which provides meaning and worth to all that is beautiful and true
Designed to provide comprehensive eye care under one roof, the services range from primary level community based rehabilitation services to state of art tertiary level care. The department functions as distinct sub-specialty services to enable optimal day-to-day functioning even as every endeavor is made to scale and master professional heights of excellence.
Cataract Services : From being the first centre to have intraocular lens implantation, the commitment to provide large scale quality services to the needy continued with continual adoption of newer techniques of cataract extraction, some being developed entirely in-house. Today, intraocular lens implantation is provided universally to all patients. It remains one of the few centres to offer sutureless cataract surgery to nearly all patients as also topical anaesthesia surgery to a majority. Incision sizes have constantly been decreasing from 9mm of the conventional surgery and 3.0mm of phacoemulsification to the newer 1.5mm and sub-millimeter techniques.
Glaucoma Services : The department has a very dynamic glaucoma unit with a wide range of surgical and conventional management protocols. Pathologies from congenital glaucoma to acquired primary and secondary glaucomas are dealt with. Routine trabeculectomy has evolved to safer and more effective techniques of deep sclerostomy, trabeculectomy with adjuncts; seton procedures, to name a few. The department can boast of being one the very few centres where in-house setons are fashioned and used. Research into newer drugs and less invasive techniques of glaucoma management remains a major thrust area.
Cornea Services : As a partner of the Edward Maumenee Eye Bank in the Hospital Corneal retrieval programme, the hospital underlines its policy of service to the suffering by providing hope to the large number of corneal blind who wait for larg-hearted donors to leave them tissues after death.
Vitreo – Retinal Services : The department has recently acquired a digital fundus examination system and a green photocoagulating laser which expands its activities in this all important area. Laser and interventional vitreous surgeries are routinely conducted as required. In order to provide the best, the activity is coordinated with other departments, particularly for the management of multi-system disorders such as diabetes.
Paediatric Ophthalmology Services : Specialised eye care for children has been a major activity of the department with support from a well established paediatric department. Our services range from monitoring visual development in children with systemic compromise to interventional therapy for strabismus, childhood cataract, glaucoma, neurovisual disorders, keratoplasty as also low visual aids for children.
Oculoplastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgery : Structural disorders of the lid, lacrimal apparatus and the orbit are treated with special emphasis on the restoration of function. Cosmetic and aesthetic procedures in and around the eye such as blepharoplasty, lid reconstruction, scar revisions, removal of wrinkles and dark circles are also undertaken using conventional surgical techniques as well newer modalities such as botulinium toxin injections and resurfacing procedures.
Neuro – Ophthalmology : The department provides management facilities for optic nerve disorders such as traumatic optic neuropathy, optic nerve vascular disorders, optic nerve pathologies associated with central nervous system disorders such as intracranial tumours and raised intracranial pressure due to other causes. In addition, the unit provides help to those with ocular motility disorders such as nystagmus, restrictive and neuroparalytic stramismus, facial nerve palsy, blepharospasm, hemifacial spasm using both conventional interventional modalities as well as chemodenervation.
Visual Rehabilitation Unit : The problem of low vision in the community and the means to alleviate resultant practical problems remains an important one. In order to address this, the department is working on a holistic visual rehabilitation unit encompassing the following:
Visual development assessment : in order to monitor the development of visual functions particularly in children with systemic compromise.
Neurovisual rehabilitation : for patients with visual compromise following strokes, head injury, central nervous system tumours.
Low vision aids : For patients with a decreased vision due to any cause, special appliances and lenses may be provided to attempt to restore function to near optimal levels. These are largely made in the department itself according to the visual requirements of the patient.
Community Ophthalmology Services : Community ophthalmology services form the backbone of all activities of the department reflecting the hospital’s philosophy of service. The activities include:
Community based rehabilitation : This is aimed at providing rehabilitative services at the doorstep so as to enable the planning of need-based individualized service as well as maximal utilization.
Camps: Indoor and outdoor camps are organized at regular intervals wherein surgery and treatment as may be required is provided free of cost.
lind school visits : The adoption of a blind school to provide eye care as may be required to all its resident students as well as to attempt visual rehabilitation at the school itself.
Surveys : Routine data collection from the community is done to assess the actual felt needs and plan future intervention at the community level. This also helps in building rapport with the local population where health care is being delivered.
School health programme : In association with the community medicine department to assess and provide health care to the young at an appropriate age and at an easily accessible place.
