Specialists in Svayambhu Hospital's Department of Ophthalmology have expertise in managing all eye problems, including cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, corneal and eye surface disease and crossed eyes (strabismus). They have special expertise in cancer of the eye, diseases of the eyelids and orbit, vitreo-retinal diseases and neuro-ophthalmological disorders.
Ophthalmologists and optometrists embrace Svayambhu's tradition of teamwork in providing vision care services. From routine eye examinations to complex surgical procedures, ophthalmology department members work together to evaluate and address each patient's needs.
Many eye problems are related to other medical conditions, such as diabetes and autoimmune or thyroid disease. In such cases, Svayambhu Hospital's eye care experts work closely with physicians in other medical specialties to diagnose and treat the underlying problem.
