  • Conjunctival Autograft in Pterygium Vision is a precious gift of nature to the mankind. With healthy eyes we can see our surroundings, enjoy the people around us, and even glimpse our own features in the mirror.
  • Although people with dimmed or no vision manage very well, being able to see clearly is a wonderful asset in life. When to get the vision checked:
  • Written words are fuzzier than they used to be.
  • If newspapers, books, and letters are a little less clear than before, it may be time to have your eyes checked. This could be age related weakness in accommodation called as Presbyopia.
  • You have to hold printed material closer to you or further away than before. This is another indication that your eyes may be more rigid in the way they admit light and adjust your vision process. If you find this is happening routinely, or even from time to time, schedule an eye exam to find out what is causing the problem.
  • You are experiencing blurred, faint, or double vision. These symptoms may indicate vision problems or an underlying medical condition, such as diabetes, that warrants a medical checkup.
  • You may note physical changes in your eyes. If they water excessively, or are extra dry, or perhaps look reddish on the lids or rims, you may have a skin or vision condition that requires treatment by over the counter medications, like eye drops. Or you may need an antibiotic for an inflammation or infection, like conjunctivitis or pink eye. Sometimes eye strain can result in these symptoms as well, so get an eye checkup to find out what is going on.
  • You are aged forty-five or older. As we move towards middle age, it is a good idea to get an overall body exam, including vision. Our bodies go through many changes over the years, and vision may be impacted by some of these adjustments.

Even if you are seeing just fine, get your eyes checked to catch early indications of glaucoma, cataracts, or other eye conditions or diseases.

One consultant, one Senior Resident and one Junior Resident is available round the clock. Department is well equiped for dealing with all types of ocular emergencies. We have got separate emergency Operation Theatre as well. Extension Services The department of Ophthalmology holds various eye camps in different areas with the help of voluntary organizations. In the eye camps, screening OPD’s are held and patients are treated at their door-steps. Patients requiring surgeries are brought to the Medical College.

The teaching schedule includes the recent developments and newer trends in various fields of ophthalmology. Both the basic sciences and clinical courses are spread over three years. The post graduates are attached with consultants so that they can be given personal attention. They are given training in general ophthalmology and in various subspecialties including microsurgery.

They are taught to do all types of surgery and are also given experience in community ophthalmology especially during eye camps. Emphasis is given on proper understanding of their role in the National Programme for Control of Blindness. The residents at the completion of their training have a very strong theoretical as well as practical background to provide all types of ophthalmic services. Every 3 candidates are taken for MS course. B. Undergraduate Teaching The undergraduate students are taught ophthalmic examination along with investigations, diagnosis and management of common eye disorders. The teaching programme includes lectures, seminars, clinical work and tutorials with the following objectives:

  1. To be able to examine and write case histories of common ocular disorders in the OPD.
  2. To be able to detect common visual defects and common eye diseases in their early stages.
  3. To be able to define and illustrate general principles of ophthalmic care.
  4. To be able to identify ocular emergencies and give first aid as well as choose proper referrals to specialists.

Clinical Teaching in Ophthalmology MBBS Final Part I Curriculum for Ophthalmology MBBS Final Part I C. Bottom. (Bachelor in Clinical Optometry) This course is of 4 years’ duration (3 academic years + 1-year Compulsory Internship). The objectives of the course are

  • to achieve general understanding of human biology and basic medical sciences related to ophthalmology,
  • to enable candidates to work under the supervision of an ophthalmologist in hospitals, clinics and community,
  • in order to help in the execution of integrated approach of promotive, preventive, diagnostic, curative and rehabilitative aspects of ophthalmic care,
  • to be able to carry out refraction work including contact lenses,
  • to be able to assess disorders of ocular motility and visual functions, give orthoptic and pleoptic exercises.

The teaching exercises include lectures, seminars, demonstrations and postings in operation theatres, mobile eye camps and various investigative labs. Every year 4 students are enrolled. Additionally, we have got students under vocational training scheme coming to the department of Ophthalmology for apprenticeship training for one year. We have 4-5 students each year for this training.
