The Glaucoma Center offers comprehensive glaucoma diagnostic services and specialized treatment program for glaucoma including optic nerve imaging, anterior segment imaging, functional testing, a 24-hour diagnostic and treatment unit and specialized diagnostic and therapeutic programs.

The Glaucoma Center of Excellence has two highly qualified and efficient glaucoma consultants. Because of their sound clinical knowledge, and high proficiency Shreeji Eye Clinic &Palak’s Glaucoma Care Center is leading Glaucoma center in Mumbai. Their fine clinical and surgical acumen and host of publications in peer reviewed journal have helped them to reach on top of their career. Their inquisitiveness to help glaucoma patients continuously have helped to develop new methods to improve glaucoma care, preventive programs for glaucoma worldwide, improved diagnostic imaging, and methods to make glaucoma surgery safer.

Here is a brief insight into the various services provided to patients at Shreeji Eye clinic & Palak’s glaucoma Care Centre.

Glaucoma Laser

Laser treatments have been a great help in the treatment of glaucoma. In fact it is first line of treatment in angle closure glaucoma. It is an OPD procedure, recovery is quick and one can resume work immediately.

  1. Selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT):
    The SLT procedure is performed to improve the outflow of fluid through the drain of the eye, therefore lowering the eye pressure. It is not painful, is done right in the office, and takes just a few minutes. Your activities are not limited afterwards, as they would be after incisional surgery. The laser can be used alone to treat glaucoma or it can act in addition to your eye drops.
  2. Laser Peripheral Iridotomy (LPI):
    The LPI procedure is done for closed-angle glaucoma, or in people who have "narrow angles" at the front of their eye. It is performed to prevent or treat an attack of glaucoma, which can cause redness, eye pain, haloes around lights and may eventually lead to loss of vision.
  3.  Diode Laser Cyclophotocoagulation
Optical Coherence Tomography Examination (OCT):
It is a recent diagnostic imaging technique that can perform very high resolution (in micro millimeters) cross-sectional imaging of in biological tissues.  It is a non-invasive, non-contact imaging technology similar to ultrasound but has considerably greater resolution. It allows detailed examination of the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL), and optic nerve head. It is also very useful for various retinal diseases like OCT is most commonly used to diagnose macular disorders like macular hole, macular pucker, diabetic maculopathy.

Complete and Advanced Surgical Management of eye diseases, specially Cataract & Glaucoma

Modern techniques for cataract and glaucoma surgeries are now available to help treat patients who suffer from cataract & Glaucoma. The newer advanced techniques have helped us maintain vision to even those advanced glaucoma patients that had lost all hopes of being able to see.

Incisional glaucoma surgery, or "filtering" surgery, refers to either trabeculectomy or a tube shunt procedure. Either type is done on an outpatient basis either at a hospital or surgery center facility. Both of these procedures can potentially lower your eye pressure a great deal and place your glaucoma under better control, reducing the risk for blindness.

A trabeculectomy involves making a "trap door" out of the wall of the eye, thus making a new drain in your eye, and allowing another place for fluid to drain from your eye, reducing the eye pressure. The result is a blister or a "bleb" on the surface of the eye, located under your upper eyelid.

A tube shunt is a device that is sewn onto the wall of the eye, with the tube entering the eye to "shunt" fluid from inside the eye to the plate on the surface of the eye. The plate is covered by your own tissue (conjunctiva) and, in most cases, is normally not visible.

Complete Cataract Management:

Cataract surgery is done on an outpatient basis. You will be undergoing light anesthesia ("twilight" sleep) to keep you comfortable. A numbing injection or eye drop will be placed on your eye to keep you pain-free during the procedure. Your cloudy lens is removed through a small incision with a special ultrasonic device to break up the cataract. Once the cloudy lens is removed, a clear artificial lens is placed into the eye. This allows light that enters the eye to focus on the retina, creating a clearer image.

The new artificial lens  (unifocal, multifocal or trifocal) is selected by your surgeon based on measurements of your eye done before the surgery. We will ask you for your input and goals for your life after cataract surgery to make sure we are meeting your visual needs to the best of our ability. Our goal is to give you clearer vision in the distance, usually without glasses correction, but reading glasses may still be required for near work. A different type of artificial lens (a "Toric" lens) can also be used to correct corneal astigmatism at the time of cataract surgery for patients who have a high degree of corneal astigmatism and who have a visually-significant cataract. 

Lasers for Refractive error correction:

Shreeji Clinics offers a variety of refractive surgery options. Our doctors are highly-trained specialists in the field of corneal and refractive surgery. We offer the newest, safest, and effective options for laser vision correction surgery. The procedure involves changing the shape of the cornea – the clear front “window” of the eye – to improve how many people see. We offer a variety of laser-based treatments that can change the shape of your cornea, improving how you see.
  1. LASIK (Laser In-situ Keratomileusis): corrects your vision by reshaping the corneal tissue beneath the surface of the cornea. LASIK reshapes the cornea beneath the surface, rather than on the surface like PRK. LASIK is used to treat higher ranges of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.
  2.  Custom LASIK: creates a unique laser treatment for each patient. In patients who are not suitable for Laser vision correction surgery, we also offer other non-laser refractive correction surgeries.
  3. Phakic Intraocular Lenses (IOLs): Phakic IOLs are designed for people with high degrees of refractive errors that cannot be safely corrected with corneal-based refractive surgery. The phakic IOL, sometimes referred to as an implantable contact lens, or ICL, is surgically implanted inside the eye in front of the eye's natural lens. The eye's natural lens is not removed, so patients can retain their pre-existing ability to focus.
 Refractive Lens Exchange (Clear Lens Extraction): With refractive lens exchange (RLE) — also called Clear Lens Extraction or CLE — an artificial lens is used to replace your eye's natural lens in order to improve vision. The procedure is performed much like cataract surgery.
