Welcome to the Department of Ophthalmology, where our dedicated team of specialists focuses on the intricate anatomy, physiology, and diseases of the eyes, as well as areas surrounding the eyes and the brain. We are committed to diagnosing and treating a wide range of eye disorders, including cataracts, glaucoma, refractive disorders, cornea and external disorders, lacrimal drainage disorders, and more. Our highly specialized doctors, supported by a diligent administrative staff, prioritize patient concerns and provide comprehensive education about their conditions.
At Taha Medical Centre, our ophthalmologists utilize advanced methods to detect and address various eye problems, such as cataracts, astigmatism, nearsightedness, farsightedness, and an array of eye disorders. Our primary objective is to enhance and sustain optimal vision for our patients. To achieve this, we employ the latest technology and diagnostic techniques to effectively manage vision impairments.
The retina plays a crucial role in our ability to see, as it receives light rays and forms images that we perceive. Retinal disorders can affect either the retina itself or its central portion known as the macula. Symptoms may include eye flashes, blurry vision, and floaters. Our retinal specialists conduct thorough examinations to understand the underlying issues. The process may involve eye scans, intraocular pressure measurements, and assessments of electrical conduction from the retina to the brain to identify signs of dysfunction. Our state-of-the-art facilities enable us to provide medical injections, laser therapy, and other interventions for retinal disorders.
Glaucoma is a condition characterized by excessive fluid accumulation in the front of the eyes, leading to optic nerve damage due to increased intraocular pressure. We offer a range of treatments for glaucoma, tailored to the specific needs of each patient. Common treatment options include eye drops, laser therapy, and surgery. The choice of treatment depends on the type of glaucoma diagnosed. For instance, primary open-angle glaucoma can often be managed with eye drops, while primary angle-closure glaucoma requires immediate medical attention followed by laser surgery.
Our well-trained ophthalmologists specialize in treating various eye problems in newborns and children. Eye disorders in infants can arise from maternal complications during pregnancy or other factors. It is crucial to address these issues within the first six months of life to minimize the risk of lifelong visual impairment. Our expert consultants and surgeons are dedicated to ensuring a bright and clear future for our younger generation. Common pediatric eye problems include refractive errors, lazy eye, droopy eyelids, and squinting. Early intervention is essential to safeguard the child’s visual well-being.
At our department, we are committed to restoring your visual impairments to their fullest extent. We provide state-of-the-art equipment, advanced diagnostic tools, and sterile theaters to ensure smooth and straightforward treatments.
