Pioneering Eye Care Steps Into Navi Mumbai

Navi Mumbai, India (PressExposure) October 11, 2012 -- Advanced Eye Hospital and Institute (AEHI) brings one of a kind eye care experience to Vashi, Navi Mumbai. AEHI is the first hospital to bring such an exhaustive gamut of eye care services under one roof ensuring that patients from Navi Mumbai do not have to travel all the way to Mumbai, Delhi or even out of India for any concern of their eye.

Whether it be acquiring latest cutting edge technology like being the first in the state to acquire the KXL Collagen Cross Linking System or being the 8th institute in the entire nation to obtain Visumax, an advanced Laser vision Correction System, AEHI has proved time and again that it is the best eye hospital in the region.

Says Dr. Vandana Jain, Director and Head of Cornea & Cataract Department, "A large population of Indians suffer from refractive errors requiring them to wear glasses or contact lenses. Our Femtosecond lasers ensure that the complication rates seen with conventional Lasik surgeries are drastically reduced. This technology also brings in more predictability for those with higher powers. Less chances of flap displacement mean that Lasik is now a viable option for people involved in contact sports. Patients with thinner corneas, who were earlier refused lasik, can now be treated using the latest KXL Cross Linking Technology."

Dr. Prachi Agashe, Head of Paediatric Ophthalmology at AEHI soothes the frayed nerves of parents whose children have been advised spectacles... "Kids with refractive errors are sceptical about their spectacles as it hinders their outdoor activities and peer acceptance. Not wearing glasses in turn affects their scholastic activities thus entangling them in a vicious cycle. At the Advanced Eye Hospital and Institute, you can rest assured that the safest and latest treatment techniques will be utilised to provide the best gentle care for your child."

"With India fast becoming the diabetic capital of the world, Diabetic Retinopathy cannot be ignored" says Dr. Haresh Asnani, Head of Retinal Department. He charts out AEHI's plan of action to tackle diabetic retinopathy, "Stealthy that diabetes is, screening becomes very essential to identify and then treat diabetic retinopathy before irreversible vision damage occurs. This is done via screening camps and at our OPDs where cutting edge technology is used to perform laser surgeries if required". He further mentions about the plans to conduct epidemiological studies and collecting data at the diabetic clinics in the community. The aim will be to develop algorithms for early recognition of individuals at risks by the diabeticians themselves.

Mrs. Nalini Joshi, mother of premature baby Aisha credits Advanced Eye Hospital, "I was absolutely unaware of the danger of Retinopathy of Prematurity. Only when the doctor screened my baby did I know how dangerous ROP can be unless detected in time." Dr. Yogesh Patil, Vitreo Retinal Surgeon at AEHI asserts, "Our ROP Screening programs help pick damage to the retina so that the treatment that is so crucial can be provided in time. Latest instruments in the hands of skilled surgeons play a vital role in visualising the retina."

Dr. Nayana Shirke, the Hospital Administrator gives a brief outline of their service culture. "We have a very young and motivated team who work tirelessly to ensure that the comfort of each and every patient is our first priority. A professional yet friendly atmosphere ensures that our staff leaves no stone unturned to wow the patient."
