Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery is a specialized area of ophthalmology that deals with the management of deformities and abnormalities of the eyelids, lacrimal (tear) system, the orbit (the bony cavity surrounding the eye), and the adjacent face. Ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgeon is an ophthalmologist (medical doctor and eye surgeon) who has completed additional training in plastic surgery as it relates to the eyes and their surrounding structures.
Ophthalmic plastic surgery is the plastic surgery of the structures surrounding the eye and face. Since such surgery can affect one’s ability to see, ophthalmic plastic surgeons are best qualified to perform these delicate surgeries and also provide any care that the eye itself may need.

SERVICES OFFERED AT INAMDAR HOSPITAL
Automated Refraction: Computer assisted Refraction, Tabletop and Portable. This gives accurate, fast and reliable spectacle prescription. Portable machine is useful while doing refraction in children and bedridden patients.
Slitlamp Biomicroscopy: This is a basic eye examination, conducted in each and every patient. It is a microscope (as the name suggest), used to see all the structure of the eye in detail. Specialized procedures like Gonioscopy & LASER treatment are done with the aid of this machine.
Applanation Tonometry: Used to measure the Intraocular pressure, commonly said as the eye pressure. This is one of the most accurate ways to measure the eye pressure. A raised eye pressure is an indication of Glaucoma.
Gonioscopy: Used to study the angle between the Cornea and Iris, in patients suspected or having Glaucoma. This is the space through which Aqueous Humour (the watery liquid in a front part of the eye) is drained out of the eye. A specially designed lens, Gonio Lens is used to conduct this test (with the aid of Slit lamp)
Perimetry: A computerized instrument used to map the field of vision. This is a test to measure/calibrate working of the optic nerve. This test is used in managing glaucoma & diagnosis of various neurological conditions.
Indirect Ophthalmoscopy: An instrument used to study the Retina, in its full extent. A special lens +20 Diopter lens is used with the indirect. It is also used for delivering LASER treatment to the Retina.
Squint Examination: Specially designed instruments and pediatric visual charts are used to diagnose various types of squint (misalignments of eyes). Prism bars, Titmus test, Bagolini glasses, Log MAR vision charts are some of the instruments used to examine patients of squint.
Contact Lens dispensing: Various kinds of soft, semi-soft and hard contact lens are dispensed. Toric (Cylindrical power), multifocal soft lenses are also dispensed.
Ascan Biometry Immersion: A computerized machine used to measure the power of the lens to be implanted in the eye after removal of cataract. Immersion mode is one of the most accurate ways of conducting this test.
Nd: YAG LASER Treatment: A special LASER used for a) Posterior capsulotomy- creating an opening in the posterior capsule of the lens), b)Peripheral Iridectomy- making a hole in the iris for easy drainage of aqueous, in Angle closure type of Glaucoma.
Diode LASER Treatment: LASER used to treat various abnormalities of Retina, like Diabetes related retinal affection, treating breaks in the retina, etc.
Phacoemulsification Cataract Surgery: A specially designed machine with which is used to remove cataract, through a very small incision (cut) in the eye. This incision closes without any sutures.
Small Incision, Manual/ Non-Phaco Cataract Surgery: Cataract surgery can also be done without using the Phacoemulsification machine. The only relative disadvantage is that the size of the incision is larger.
Trabeculectomy: Surgery for glaucoma. A one-way valve is made in the Sclera for drainage of aqueous humor, thereby reducing eye pressure.
Squint Surgery: By adjusting the length & site of muscle attachment many of the squints can be corrected. Sometimes more than one operation may be necessary to achieve the desired result.
Lacrimal Sac Surgery: A block in the Nasolacrimal duct (tube draining the tears from eye to nose) is surgically bypassed in this operation. This surgery is done either through Nose (Endonasal) or externally. A special LASER is used to make a hole in the nose and lacrimal sac. Using LASER makes the procedure virtually painless and bloodless. Also there practically no chance of re-block.
Occulopasty Surgery (Ophthalmic Plastic Surgery): Various disfigurements (Eg. Ptosis/droopy eyelids, Entropion/ Ectropion, etc) of external structures of the eye are corrected by these operations.
Retinal Surgeries: Retinal detachment, Vitreous hemorrhage (bleeding in vitreous) is managed by the variety of surgical procedures, like scleral buckling, vitrectomies, etc.
