Department of Ophthalmology was established in the year 1987 to provide super specialized eye care facilities at Batra Hospital, all under one roof. At the eye department, our highly trained Ophthalmologists are striving to achieve the best possible visual results for you.

The Ophthalmology Department offers comprehensive state of the art services with most sophisticated infrastructure & human resources, extending services to all the Ophthalmic sub-specialities like cataract, cornea, vitreo-retina, refractive surgery, glaucoma, squint, occuloplasty, Neuro-ophthalmology, Paediatric Ophthalmology, trauma, contact lenses, Opticals etc.

The prominent eye diseases that are being handled with the state of the art technology include:


  • Cataract
    Normal human lens is clear and transmits light and images of external world to the retina. Cataract is part of ageing process in which the lens becomes cloudy leading to blurry vision. There are no medications available which can dissolve the cataract. However it can be removed and replaced with an Intra ocular lens[IOL] implant.

    We at Batra Hospital routinely perform stitchless cataract surgery with insertion of foldable IOL through a small incision (2.0mm) by phacoemulsification technology, using the latest equipment - Infinity with Ozelle under VISU 150 [Zeiss, Germany] operating microscope. We are also doing MICS (micro incision cataract surgery) and using premium IOLs like toric and multifocals. This helps in rapid visual recovery in patients. Optical Biometer 700(Zeiss, Germany) is used to calculate the power of these premium IOLs.
  • Refractive Errors
    Myopia, hypermetropia and astigmatism are treated with spectacles and contact lenses. Laser Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis i.e. LASIK, C-LASIK & EPILASIK and phakic IOL are the latest procedures to get rid of glasses.

    All patients undergo computerized eye testing with autorefractometer and autokeratometer [Topcon, Japan] for accurate measurements of the refractive errors.
  • Glaucoma
    Is a slow painless disease destroying eyesight due to increase in eye pressure. We can assess and document it with state of the art computerized Visual Field Analyser [Humphrey, USA] Goldmann Applanation Tonometer [Haag Streit, Switzerland] and CT-80 Non-Contact Tonometer (Topcon, Japan).

    Glaucoma is treated with eye drops, oral medications, laser iridotomy with ndYAG Laser [Zeiss, Germany].

    Surgical management of glaucoma is undertaken by performing trabeculectomy. Patients suffering from both glaucoma and cataract are treated by perfoming Phaco-Trab, i.e. phacoemusification and trabeculectomy combined.
  • Retina

    Cases like DR and other vascular retinopathies are diagnosed with latest equipments like OCT, FFA etc and treatment is offered as per stage of the disease. Vitreo-retinal surgeries for Retinal detachment, Macular hole etc are also done at our centre.

  • Occuloplasty

Surgeries involving orbit & eyelids including dacrocystorhinostomty, blepharoplasty, lid repair, ptosis correction,entropion/ectropion correction and enucleation is routinely performed at our centre to give best cosmetic correction to our patients.
