The most admirable traits of an ophthalmologist who sets out to be the absolute best are humility, self-effacement, overachiever, perfectionist, intolerant, workaholic, striving, and controlling.

All eye diseases are diagnosed with the help of an electrocardiogram.  And a non-invasive imaging test that uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of your retina, the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye known as optical coherence tomography (OCT) used to diagnose the corneal opacity, glaucoma, optic nerve disorder, eye retina diseases.

The most frequent causes for the loss of sight are age-related macular degeneration (65%), glaucoma (28%), and diabetic retinopathy (27%). In 75% of the cases, blindness can be prevented with the help of precaution and early treatment.

Laser eye surgery has been practised since 1978 and there are constant advances in technology and techniques. There are a number of different procedures that have been or are being used (e.g. RK, ARK and PRK, LASIK) to “sculpt” the eye into the desired shape for better vision. The LASIK we know and love today consists of a combination of excimer laser technology and surgical incisions using a microkeratome.
