Cataract is the clouding of natural lens of eye.

Most people after sixty years of age will eventually develop cataract. Sometimes cataract can also occur in children and in younger individuals.

In the olden days it was a misconception that cataract had to be fully ripe or mature before it is to be operated. But in the present time the moment cataract start to interfere with the daily activities like watching T.V., reading, writing, driving, it can be operated.

After a thorough check up if you are diagnosed as having cataract, you will be advised by our Doctors or Counselors about the surgery, the various lens options available and the necessary post operative care required.

Laser Vision correction or Lasik takes you from wearing glasses or contact lenses to clear natural vision in a matter of minutes.

Lasik at Rushabh Eye Hospital & Laser Center is done using one of the most technologically advanced and state of the art VISX STAR S4 IR Excimer Laser Systems.

This technology is superlative in term of laser delivery & clinical outcomes aimed at giving you better & sharper vision than with glasses & contact lenses.


As shown below a thin protective flap of corneal tissue is folded back. The Excimer laser then reshapes tissue from the inner cornea to correct the individual's refractive error with exceptional accuracy. The corneal flap is placed back in its position where it bonds.

The retina is like the film in a camera. It is the seeing tissue of the eye. When the focused light hits the retina, a picture is created and sent to the brain through the optic nerve (the nerve of the eye), thus giving us vision.

Retina has two parts: The peripheral retina and central Macula. Macula being the central part, is capable of producing sharp and clear image. This clear images enable us to read , write and do all fine work.

Conditions like Diabetes, Age related Macular degeneration and Macular holes can damage retina.

Rushabh Eye hospital & Laser Center is equipped with the most advanced equipments to diagnose and treat retinal diseases.

Digital Fundus Fluoroscien Angiography

A test to detect various Retinal conditions like Diabetic Retinopathy, Diseases of the Retinal Blood Vessels, Age Related Macular Degeneration, etc. The digital imaging system gives us crystal clear images of the retina and aids in accurate diagnosis.

Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that gradually steal sight without warning. In the early stages of the disease, there may be no symptoms. It is estimated that half of the people affected by glaucoma may not know they have it.

Vision loss is caused by damage to the optic nerve. This nerve acts like an electric cable with over a million wires. It is responsible for carrying images from the eye to the brain.

It was once thought that high pressure within the eye, also known as intraocular pressure or IOP, is the main cause of this optic nerve damage. Although IOP is clearly a risk factor, we now know that other factors must also be involved because even people with “normal” levels of pressure can experience vision loss from glaucoma.

Early detection is vital to stopping the progress of this sight threatening disease.

RUSHABH Eye Hospital and Laser Center has a specialized Glaucoma Clinic with a Certified Senior Glaucoma Consultant of repute specializing in Glaucoma Diagnosis and Management.

The Glaucoma Clinic is equipped with advanced Glaucoma Diagnostic Equipment like 3-D OCT, SWAP Perimetry and Orbscan 2 based Corneal Pachymetry.

Can I have Glaucoma ?

Unfortunately glaucoma is a disease, which cannot be seen or felt by the patients in the early stages. It is usually spotted during the course of a routine eye check-up done by an Eye Surgeon, when high IOP is suspected and more detailed test is conducted. The mistake that most people commonly make is getting only their glass numbers checked by an Optician ignoring the need for a detailed eye check up.

Sometimes the patient discovers it and come to the Doctor with complaints of mild headache, fuzzy vision in morning or seeing rainbow colours around lights. These all indicate raised IOP.

Get an Eye Check up routinely above the age of 40 years.

Cornea is the transparent, dome-shaped tissue covering the front of the eye. It is like the watch glass of a wrist watch. Cornea is a powerful refracting surface and provides about 2/3rd of the eye's focusing power. Diseases of the cornea, due to injury or infection lead to loss of its transparency, thus reducing the vision.

Corneal Transplant or Keratoplasty

Diseased corneas can now be replaced successfully by transplanting a human donor cornea to the diseased eye. Replacing the unhealthy cornea with a healthy corneais the only way of restoring vision. CORNEAL TRANSPLANTATION is one of the most successful organ transplant surgeries.

Corneas for tansplant come from individuals who have donated their eyes for use after death.

Cornea clinic is an integral part of Rushabh Eye Hospital & Laser Center . About 2.5 million people in India suffer from Corneal Blindness. Hence early diagnosis, prompt management and treatment of this problem is absolutely mandatory.
