The Low Vision Service at AEHI helps improve the quality of life of those patients who suffer from very poor vision due to advanced eye conditions.
Patients with any eye or vision related diseases undergo a detailed eye check-up at Advanced Eye Hospital & Institute (AEHI) in Sanpada near Vashi, Navi Mumbai; after which one of our super specialist team of eye doctors checks the patient and give the suitable advice.
Not all-poor vision can be enhanced with surgery and/or other treatments. Moreover, this affects our lives on a daily basis making it difficult for the patients as well as their families. Low vision service at AEHI constantly strives to improve the patient’s low vision through various devices and rehabilitation services. With the help of these devices, a lot of patients with extremely poor vision can have a better quality of life.
Plans are devised for the patient, based on the patient’s needs and profession in collaboration with him and his family. Patient undergoes a detailed eye check-up including basic check-up such as-
1. Visual acuity (both distance and near)
2. Contrast sensitivity
3. Visual field, particularly the central visual field used for reading
The options and plans include magnification aids, computer tools and vision training. These individualised options help in safe and independent daily activities.
Further, at AEHI, we also have provision for various contact lenses. Those who cannot opt for LASIK, Implantable Contact Lenses or Phakic IOLs is one of the option. Some patients who do not want to undergo any surgery but want to have some freedom from glasses, contact lenses are a great option.
Not just normal people but a lot of people who have serious eye diseases like keratoconus, post lasik ectasia, corneal scars and high astigmatism can benefit from specialised contact lenses. All different types of contact lenses are available at AEHI - soft contact lenses made of flexible plastics, rigid gas permeable (RGP) lenses made of semi soft material and are less likely to tear, extended wear contacts, disposable (Replacement Schedule) contacts, cosmetic contact lenses, Rosek Lenses, mini scleral and scleral lenses.
The Hospital is ISO certified and pays full attention to patient care processes and personalized service. The patients love the ambience and the service experience at the hospital. The hospital frequently gets rave reviews about the amazing eye doctors and the empathetic staff. Each staff at AEHI has been trained into extending personal care and attention to people suffering from eye problems. We realise that sometimes a warm smile is all that’s needed to take away the pain of visiting a hospital. After all, nobody visits the hospital by choice.
