Cataract and Squint treated successfully at AEHI

Here we present a case of Mr. Sudhakar a 40-year-old male who visited Advanced Eye Hospital and Institute (AEHI) located at Sanpada, Navi Mumbai. Sudhakar came with complaints of not being able to see properly from his left eye. He searched on the website for the eye hospitals in Navi Mumbai, wherein he found Advanced Eye Hospital and Institute. He booked an appointment for himself at an earliest.

On the day of the appointment he reached AEHI, he was pleased to see the cleanliness of the hospital and the pleasant smile of the staffs. He got his complete eye evaluation and then he was referred to Dr. Vandana Jain, Cataract and Cornea specialist. Dr. Vandana Jain checked his eyes and noticed interior corneal scar and a mature cataract in addition to squint (strabismus) in his left eye. On questioning, he mentioned that he that he had undergone a traumatic accident involving a twig of a tree piercing his left eye around a year back. As he was sparingly using his left eye he had developed an Exotropia (outward deviation squint) of 15 degrees in that eye.




Dr. Vandana Jain explained him in detail each and every step of the treatment part for his cataract in a simplified language, which ruined all his worries and he decided to go ahead with the operation.

He was successfully operated by Dr. Vandana Jain for his cataract and an intraocular lens was implanted in his left eye. He was happy with his follow up to get the good result as his vision was improved.

But few days after the operation he started experiencing double vision which hampered his quality of life and started interfering his work.  He consulted Dr. Vandana Jain to find out the cause of his double vision. Dr. Vandana Jain checked his eyes and found it to be due to the misalignment of the visual axes due to the squint that had developed in the left eye. He was referred to Dr. Prachi Agashe (Adult Squint Surgeon and Paediatric Ophthalmologist) at AEHI. Detailed Squint evaluation was done and then he was planned for Squint surgery.

Sudhakar then underwent a squint surgery on his left eye which too was conducted successfully by Dr. Prachi Agashe. Following the surgery, the visual axes were realigned properly and his vision was completely restored to normal condition.

Today he is extremely happy and thankful for being able to see properly also being completely relieved of his double vision problem and is currently excelling in both his personal and professional life.

Mr Sudhakar is thankful to Dr. Vandana Jain and Dr. Prachi Agashe for restoring his vision.
