The patient was treated of pterygium in Global Hospital Chennai

Yes. The services were very good. Personal well motivated to work and ready to help. Cleaness as I observed

Anonymous Dec 21, 2016

I was diagnosed with hemophthalmos and urgently needed an operation vitrectomy. I could not find doctor who could make this operation. I turned to the internet for help and found Bookimed. They answered me quickly, my doctor was coordinator Ivan Koval. After very short time I received all necessary information and program of treatment. I was very lucky with coordinator, he is a professional, friendly, diligent and responsible doctor. I came on tourist visa to Fortis clinic which is located in India, New Delhi. The Fortis clinic I immediately did not like. Interpreters are not serious, medical personnel seemed to me not very responsible, laws changed, the coordination of the clinic was awful. After examination I was refused to do surgery on a tourist visa, it was necessary to get medical visa which needed additional 15 days and a lot of money as Fortis doctors told me, so I was very nervous. All the time my doctor was the coordinator for communication with clinic, he called me every 10 min to ask how are you, how are you feeling, talking to the medical staff the clinic, he was very worried too. At the same day Ivan Koval found another clinic in Bangalore and Dr. Priya who brought me from Delhi to Bangalore that night. And then I had two good responsible doctors, Dr. Priya and Dr. Koval, who found the best surgeons for me. Thanks a lot for that!!! In Bangalore I was very warmly welcomed by the staff of the hospital and taken to Manipal where I waited for good, responsive, cute and beautiful hospital personnel . They carefully examined me and my eyes, appointed the time of surgeryi. At day of operation I had no doubt that my operation will be great. Otherwise could not be. My surgical doctors were the most experienced, responsible, sensitive and highly qualified doctors in the world. Operation went very easily and well, I did not feel much pain after surgery. I was happy when the next day doctors removed the blindfold, my eyes began to see as before)) This was my second birth. even tears of joy rolled down my face. My doctors were Dr. Ajanta Chakravarty and Dr. Nitin S. Shetty. I express my heartfelt gratitude to my favorite doctors and the entire staff of Manipal for perfect and noble work that is so important to people. I was very pleased to feel a lot of attention, sympathy and understanding! A low bow to you for the tremendous, competent force in saving our lives!

The patient underwent eye surgery in Manipal Hospitals

I had a diagnosis Hemophthal urgently needed surgery Vitrektomiya.Tak as we do not do such an operation in the country I went to Bukamed for help. I quickly worked for me Bukimed, my coordinator was Ivan Koval. In a very short time I received all interesting information and the program of my treatment. I am very lucky with the coordinator, he is a professional, friendly, diligent and responsible doctor. I came to the Fortes Clinic in New Delhi, India. At the Fortes clinic I did not like right away.
Translators are not serious, the medical staff seemed to me not very responsible, the legislation was changed, the coordination in the clinic was simply terrible. After the examination, I was refused an operation on a tourist visa, I needed a medical visa and the visa needed was 15 days and large money as doctors said Fortes, I was very nervous, all this time my coordinator was on call, he called me every 10 minutes. asked how things were, how he felt, talked with the medical staff of the clinic, he also worried very much for everything. Ivan Koval same day found for me another clinic in Bangalore and Dr. Priyu who took me for a night from Delhi to Bangalore. If I had one reliable, diligent my Coordinator doctor, then there were two kindly sympathetic doctors Priya too very much done for me, he found for me their most good colleagues. For which he thank you so much !!! In Bangalore, I was warmly greeted by the staff of the Manipal hospital and taken to Manipal where good, responsive, lovely and wonderful medical personnel of the hospital were waiting for me. They very carefully examined me and my eye, they set the day for the operation. On the day of the operation, I had no doubt that my operation would pass perfectly differently, otherwise my surgical doctors were the most experienced, responsible, sensitive and highly qualified world-class doctors. very easily and successfully, I almost did not feel pain after the operation.
I was happy when the next day the operations cleaned the eye patch to me, my eyes began to see as before)) This was my second birth.
for joy, even tears of happiness slipped.
My doctors were Dr. Ajanta Chakravarty and Dr. Nitin S. Shetty.
I express my heartfelt gratitude to my beloved doctors and to all Manipal staff for the impeccable and noble work that is so important to people. I was very pleased to feel a great deal of attention from the staff and doctors, sympathy and ponemanie! Low bow to you for the great, competent forces in saving our lives!
У меня был диагноз Гемофталь срочно нужна была операция Витрэктомия.Так как у нас в стране не делается такая операция я через интернет обратилась в Букимед за помощью.Довольно быстро сработал для меня Букимед, моим координатор врачом был Иван Коваль.Я за очень короткое время получила всю интересующую информацию и программу моего лечение.Мне очень повезло с координатором,он профессиональный, дружелюбный, старательный и ответственный врач.Я по туристической визе приехала в Клинику Фортес который находиться в Индии г.Нью Дели. В клинике Фортес мне сразу не понравился.

Переводчики не серьезные,мед персоналы мне показались не очень ответственными,законодательство поменяли,координация в клинике была просто ужасной.После обследование мне отказали делать операцию по туристической визе, нужна было мед.виза а переделывать визу нужна была 15 дней и большие деньги как сказали врачи Фортеса,я сильно нервничала,всё это время мой координатор врач был на связи,он звонил мне каждые 10 мин.спрашивал как дела,как самочувствие,разговаривал с мед персоналами клиники,он тоже переживал очень за всё.Иван Коваль тот же день нашел для меня другую клинику в Банголоре и доктора Прию который вывез меня за ночь из Дели в Банголор.Если у меня был один надёжный,старательный мой Координатор врач,то их стало двое добрый отзывчивый доктор Прия тоже очень многое для меня делал,он нашел для меня самых хороших своих коллег. За что ему огромное спасибо!!! В Банголоре меня очень тепло встретили сотрудники госпиталя Манипал и доставили в Манипал где меня ждали добрые,отзывчивые,милые и прекрасные мед персоналы госпиталя. Они очень внимательно обследовали меня и мой глаз,назначили день операции.В день операции у меня не было никакого сомнение что операция моя пройдет отлично иначе быть не могло,моими хирургическими врачами были самые опытные,ответственные,чуткие и высококвалифицированные врачи мирового уровня.Операция прошла очень легко и удачно,я почти боли не чувствовала после операции.

Я была Счастлива когда на следующий день операции убрали повязку глаза мне,мой глаз видеть начал как и раньше)) Это было мое второе Рождение.

от радости даже слезы счастье скатились.

Моими врачами были Dr. Ajanta Chakravarty и Dr. Nitin S. Shetty.

Я выражаю свою сердечную благодарность моим любимым врачам и всему персоналу Манипала за безупречный и благородный труд который так важен людям. Мне очень было приятно чувствовать со стороны персонала и врачей огромное внимание,сочувствие и понемание! Низкий вам поклон за огромные, грамотные силы в спасении наших жизней!

Questions and answers

What is ophthalmology?

Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine focused on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of eye diseases, partial and complete vision loss.

Pediatric ophthalmology is a subdivision of ophthalmology that studies the characteristics of children's vision. The child’s vision, unlike that of an adult, is constantly changing. Pediatric eye doctors study the features of a child’s vision changes and related pathologies.

What does an eye doctor treat?

Ophthalmologists in India correct not only vision impairments but diseases of the eyeball, eyelids, lacrimal organs, conjunctiva, and eyepit as well. 

The most common eye disorders an ophthalmologist can help you to cope with are:

  • nearsightedness (myopia) is a visual impairment when the image is focused in front of the retina and the person cannot clearly see distant objects
  • farsightedness (hyperopia) is a visual impairment when the image focuses behind the retina of the eye and a person cannot clearly see close objects
  • conjunctivitis — inflammation of the mucous membrane of the eye (conjunctiva)
  • cataract — a clouding of the lens of the eye
  • glaucoma — increased eye pressure causing visual impairment
  • astigmatism — a violation of the shape of the lens or cornea.

How is the eye disease diagnosis carried out?

At the initial appointment, the ophthalmologist in India conducts an examination and computer vision diagnostics. To determine various visual impairments, the following eye tests are carried out:

  • autorefractometry (a measurement of the refractive power of the eye)
  • keratometry (assessment of the curvature of the cornea anterior surface)
  • non-contact measurement of intraocular pressure
  • corneal topography or photokeratoscopy (scanning the surface of the cornea)
  • ultrasound of the eye (necessary to assess the condition of the membranes of the eyeball, allows diagnosing changes in the retina and vitreous body, determination of intraocular neoplasms)
  • ultrasound biometry (determination of the length of the eye, the thickness of the lens, the depth of the anterior chamber)
  • pachymetry (measuring the thickness of the cornea using ultrasound)
  • direct and reverse ophthalmoscopy (assessment of the state of the retina, choroid, optic disc, macular zone based on examination of the fundus)
  • biomicroscopy (a method that allows examining the anterior and posterior parts of the eyeball with different lighting and image sizes). The study is carried out using a special slit lamp device.
  • gonioscopy (examination and assessment of the anterior chamber angle).

Comprehensive ophthalmologic diagnosis in India allows the ophthalmologist to identify visual impairments and latent refractive errors, develop the most effective treatment plan.

What are eye treatment methods?

To treat eye diseases, ophthalmologists use the following methods:

  • drug therapy — the use of drops, vitamins, injections to treat disorders
  • physiotherapy — considered the most effective in inflammatory diseases treatment 
  • eye surgery — used in cases when conservative treatment does not give the desired results.

What are the indications for eye surgery in India?

The most common visual impairments are considered glaucoma and cataracts. These diseases are dangerous because they can lead to a significant decrease or even loss of vision. Therefore, surgical intervention is often prescribed to eliminate these effects.

The surgery is also required for treatment of the following diseases:

  • refractive disorders
  • severe endophthalmitis (inflammation of the interior of the eye)
  • progressive severe visual impairment
  • astigmatism
  • concussion
  • inflammatory diseases
  • retinal detachment.

What are the methods of eye operations?

Ophthalmologists in India perform three types of operations:

  • surgery for medical reasons to preserve vision, remove a tumor or prevent the spread of infection
  • operations to eliminate refractive errors like farsightedness, nearsightedness, and astigmatism
  • plastic surgery to eliminate defects such as benign neoplasms, entropion, ptosis, or to change the incision and color of the eyes, remove bags under the eyes.

What are the most common eye surgeries in India performed?

The following operations are most often performed:

  • keratoplasty — corneal transplant in case of cornea defects and other serious changes
  • corneal cross-linking — an alternative to keratoplasty for keratoconus treatment at the initial stages
  • laser vision correction 
  • retinal laser photocoagulation
  • PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) — myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism correction using an excimer ophthalmic laser
  • lens replacement surgery
  • cataract extraction with intraocular lens (IOL) implantation
  • glaucoma surgery.
