Corneal Ulcer Treated Successfully at AEHI, Navi Mumbai
Mr Ganesh 40 years male is a mason by profession who visited Advanced Eye Hospital and Institute for his eye problems. Mr Ganesh is known for the perfection in his work.
Mr Ganesh was dressing one of the wall. While he was doing the final touch up by plastering, some cement particles entered in his eyes. He immediately rinsed his eyes with water. His right eye immediately was red and swollen.
Other masons, who were helping him, took him to nearby doctor to who just did dressing to his right eye. But the swelling increased in next two days causing intense pain in his right eye. So he decided to visit an Eye specialist. His supervisor advised that he should consult at Advanced Eye Hospital and Institute (AEHI) located at Sanpada; for it is the best eye hospital in Navi Mumbai.
Mr Ganesh visited AEHI on an emergency basis and got his right eye checked. Then he was referred to Dr. Vandana Jain, Cataract and Cornea Specialist at AEHI. Dr. Vandana Jain checked his eyes and said that the cement has injured his cornea causing an ulcer on to his cornea. Cornea is the transparent white part in front of the eye. Dr. Vandana Jain did a few tests to check the depth of injury to figure out if he needed an eye operation or a medical approach could be sought. She did a fluorescein eye stain test which includes numbing the eyes followed by adding a dye to the eye in the form of drops. The eye is then visualized under a special blue light. Based on this test; she administered him few antibiotic eye drops to prevent infection and for early healing.
In his follow up after a week, his swelling and redness was reduced. Mr Ganesh could see much clearly. He was lucky enough to save his eyes as the cement has not caused much injury to his eyes. He was advised to wear protective gear while working to prevent further such incidences.
Mr Ganesh was thankful to Dr. Vandana Jain and AEHI for their co-operative staffs and professional yet homely attitude.
