comprehensive list of equipment, making it the foremost centre for
Ophthalmology in Asia.
Comprehensive eye examination.
This is used for spectacle refraction. Usage of the
technique of evaluating spectacles. The biggest
advantage of phoropter is that once the axis is setup,
(Topcon 8000E. Japan)
This unit automatically computes the spectacle power of
the eye and at the same time computes the exact axis and
the amount of astigmatism. It also assesses the pupillar
distance , thus enabling that the glasses are set perfectly
in the frames.

evaluation of the pressure with a high level of accuracy.
Ophthalmoscopes (Heine Germany)
in detail. There are two types of ophthalmoscopes,
direct, where one sees the retina directly, used
and the Indirect Ophthalmoscope, head mounted,
which using a special lens enables the retina to be
examined up to the extreme periphery.
Computerized Lensometer (Topcon Japan)
Computes the power of the spectacles the patient
is wearing and as to whether the spectacle power
the proper pupillary distance can be computed with
this instrument which has exceptional accuracy.
Contrast Sensitivity testing: VectorVision
In lens opacity (cataracts), utilizing the Pelli Robson
charts with a grating system the doctor can tell how
cataract would be ready for removal. They also
predict, early glaucomatous damage and other
“Ultrascan “(Alcon (USA)
In the presence of a mature cataract or vitreous
be seen. Ultrasound tells you the position of the
retina, looks for retinal detachment or if there
are opacities or foreign bodies. The Ultrascan is
a very high resolution equipment which can
accurately show the changes
Specular Non-Contact Computerized
Microscopy: Topcon: Japan:
A sophisticated non contact microscope which can, with
high magnification, auto focus on the fine endothelial
evaluate their function and status. Very important for
evaluation if the patient can withstand cataract surgery,
surgery. Essentially a computer which computes the ball
and the curvature of the eye, and even the approx area
where the lens will finally stablilize in the eye.
