Diagnostic Technology

LENSTAR LS 900

The LENSTAR LS 900 is a latest generation diagnostic tool. It is a non-touch, non-contact automated technique of calculating the lens power in patients undergoing the cataract procedure. The machine is highly accurate with an error of only 0.50 Diopters. Combined with the latest generation Microphaco [MICS] cataract machine, Sri Eye Care offers state of the art world-class Cataract treatment.

Carl Zeiss Meditec Optical Coherence Tomography [OCT]

Sri Eye Care is equipped with its very own OCT. Thisis an advanced diagnostic scan for analysing the retina [the thin film at the back of the eye responsible for vision] and the Optic nerve [the nerve connecting the eye to the brain]. This non-touch, non-invasive scan takes only about 2-3 minutes per eye and images each and every miniscule layer of these structures. This helps in precise diagnosis and monitoring diseases of retina [such as diabetic retinopathy, age related macular degeneration (ARMD), cystoid macular edema, Central serous choroidoretinopathy, etc] and diseases of the optic nerve

Kowa VX-10a Fundus Photography with Fluorescein Angiography [FP/FFA]

Fundus photography [FP] is an indispensable tool for diagnosing and documenting retinal diseases. It helps our patients understand their disease better, and take better control of their treatment. Fundus Fluorescein Angiography [FFA] is another important diagnostic tool which is used to identify areas of leakage in the retina. This will help localise the site of the lesion for better treatment of the disease. Sri Eye Care offers high definition FA/FFA facilities with accurate diagnostic interpretation from senior Ophthalmologists.

Elisar Advanced Vision Analyser [AVA]

Sri Eye Care is equipped with the latest in Glaucoma diagnostics. Gone are the days of bulky big machines to check your visual fields. The Elisar AVA is a convenient portable device which is a convenient, no fuss way to check visual fields. The reports are sent instantly to our secure cloud servers and can be accessed securely from anywhere by our team of specialists. Visual fields testing is the most important diagnostic tool for people suspected to have Glaucoma. It is also an invaluable tool for neurological diseases affecting the eyes.

Pentacam HR/Oculyser Corneal Tomographer

The Pentacam HR is the one of the most accurate non-contact devices in profiling the corneal parameters. The machine measures the elevation of not only the anterior layer of the cornea but also of its posterior layer thereby greatly increasing the diagnostic accuracy. It also provides the thickness of the cornea which is comparable to the gold standard. Along with these features, it also has built in detailed analysis software to help identify early indicators of corneal disease. The device is indispensable for patients suspected of having keratoconus or patients planning for LASIK/SMILE surgery.

Tomey EM-3000 Specular Microscope

The specular microscope is an non-contact diagnostics tool which measures the health of the innermost layer of the cornea [endothelium]. It analyses the number and health of the cells of this layer. This layer is responsible for maintaining the transparency of the cornea. Sri Eye Care is one of the few eye hospitals in North Bangalore to have this diagnostic tool. It is used to check the health of the inner layer of cornea for all patients undergoing cataract procedure as well as patients suspected to have any disease of the endothelium[innermost layer of the cornea]

B-Scan Ophthalmic Ultrasound

The B-scan eye scan is an important tool to visualise the back of the eye i.e the retina and surrounding structures in conditions where the visibility is poor such as very dense cataracts, vitreous haemorrhage, injury, etc.

Surgical Technology

Alcon LEGION System

Minimally invasive Microincision phaco cataract surgery [MICS] is only possible with the latest generation technology. The LEGION™ system in the latest in technology for cataract extraction due to its efficient nature of liquifying and sucking out the cataract. This system uses the OZIL™ technology reduce the surgical time by 50% as compared to conventional phaco, along with ensuring a high safety profile for all kinds of cataract cases. The minimally invasive nature of this technology also ensures a faster recovery time. Sri Eye Care is one of the few centers in Bangalore that has this technology.

Vitrectomy Suite with Wide-angle Viewing System

Akin to its legacy of its chairman, Sri Eye Care has the infrastructure and technology to perform safe, speedy and sutureless [stitch-less] vitrectomy procedures. The efficiency of our vitrectomy machine enables the surgeon to safely work with high parameters, thereby drastically cutting down on surgical time. The Wide-angle non-contact viewing system which is attached to the microscope enables the surgeon to visualize a wide area of the retina being operated.

CL-UVR Collagen Cross Linking Technology - Appasamy

Keratoconus is an important disease affecting the corneas of adolescents and young adults. If left untreated, the corneas tend to become steeper, thinner and more irregular causing a high amount of irregular astigmatism and loss of best corrected vision with glasses. At late stages of this disease, the cornea can become extremely thin wherein the structural integrity and its transparency can be compromised. Corneal Collagen Cross-linking with Riboflavin arrests the process of keratoconus, thereby decreasing further chances of progress of this condition. The CL-UVR machine is a homogenized UV delivery system which is used to activate the Riboflavin dye to form the collagen bonds in the corneal layers, thereby increasing the strength of the cornea.

Alcon WaveLight EX500 Excimer Laser

The EX500 excimer laser is the newest generation of flying spot laser that is used for LASIK treatment. It is the fastest machine and takes about only 1.4sec per diopter of power correction. The EX500 also uses the CONTOURA® vision eye mapping technology to map the patient’s cornea and customize the treatment based on the higher order aberrations.

Nd:YAG Laser

The Nd:YAG laser is a modern treatment tool essential for narrow angle glaucoma suspects and patients with posterior capsular opacification [after-cataract]. The laser precisely breaks down the target areas and facilitates the creation of openings that are helpful for alleviating the pathology.

VISUMAX Femtosecond Platform

The VISUMAX femtosecond platform is the pioneer technology for ReLEx SMILE procedure. It is also used for bladeless LASIK procedure. The VISUMAX platform uses a very gentle suction which is extremely comfortable for the patient. ReLEx SMILE is the latest in refractive surgery technology which does not need the creation of a flap for correction of the power. The flapless nature of this process affords more stability, faster healing as well as a high safety profile for individuals who lead an active life.

LIGHTMED LIGHTLas TruScan Pattern Laser Photocoagulator

Pattern laser photocoagulation is the recent and advanced technology for LASER delivery for photocoagulation. LASER photocoagulation of the retina is done for patients with advanced diabetic retinopathy, central retinal vein occlusion, recalcitrant macular edema, etc. Traditional lasers deliver only a single spot of laser energy on the retina and cause significant discomfort to patients undergoing the procedure. The TruScan Pattern Laser Photocoagulator delivers multiple spots of laser with a lower duration, thereby completely reducing any discomfort in the patients. The multiple spot pattern also reduces treatment time to 1/10th as compared to traditional lasers.
