Giving a push to voluntary eye donation, Vice-President M Venkaiah Naidu urged people to go for the same. In Chennai while speaking at a function on eye surgery on Saturday Naidu said there was a need to involve urban local bodies, private sector and NGOs to augment the Central government’s efforts to provide comprehensive eye care services to all.
It is pertinent to mention here that national capital Delhi is already acting like a flagship state when it comes to eye care.
The most advanced modality of laser vision correction--Contoura Vision—has recently been introduced in Delhi. Because of its unique characteristics, this technology has gained rapid popularity.
Under it, the machine maps the curvature of the cornea and measures the same on over 20000 data points. By a sophisticated computerised algorithm, each one of these data points is evaluated independently for vision correction. This precise, sharp and customized wavefront ablation treatment, results in better vision and helps you in saying goodbye to your lenses.
Contoura Vision has been launched in as many as three centers in Delhi-NCR—AIIMS, Eye7 Hospitals and Medanta Hospital.
A constituent unit of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Dr Rajendra Prasad Centre for Ophthalmic Sciences is the first Government Institution to acquire this technology for laser vision correction, in the country.
In the private sector, the Eye 7 Hospitals have introduced the Contoura Vision technology in the national capital. In fact, it was the only stand-alone eye care center in Delhi- NCR to provide the surgery. Founded by Dr. Sanjay Chaudhary, it has over thirty years of experience in eye surgery.
“Contoura Vision offers specific advantages such as treatment of corneal irregularities and visual axis treatments, thereby giving highly superior and sharper visual outcomes, unmatched by older laser procedures such as LASIK and SMILE,” said Dr Chaudhary.
Medanta Hospital in Gurgaon (NCR), also offers this technology becoming the third center in Delhi. It is a private multispecialty hospital. The hospital has a Cataract suite which is designed to perform cataract surgery with precision and accuracy.
