Hyderabad: An ultra modern robotic laser cataract surgery center was inaugurated on Sunday at Dr Akbar Super Specialty Hospitals at Asif Nagar, Mehdipatnam. The center, part of the new hospital premises, features the world’s best Catalys Precision Laser System. The Laser guided system is used to perform high precision robot-assisted cataract surgeries, said senior ophthalmologist Dr. Altaf Akbar.
Speaking after inaugurating the new premises, he said “the new technique allows a blade-free treatment of cataract, and does not require any injections to be administered to the patient.”
Patients can walk in for a surgery, and walk out in just 30 minutes. This is a revolutionary system that is virtually painless, offers high precision, and makes a surgery almost as quick as an outpatient consultation”, said noted ophthalmologist Dr Altaf Akbar, a second generation ophthalmologist with more than 1 lakh surgeries on his portfolio.
Additionally, the hospital also features LASIK treatment. The Lasik treatment enables vision correction in patients with the use of laser technology. It can also be used for correction of cornea-related vision problems including myopia, hyperopia, and can be used to cure astigmatism.”
“One of the biggest benefits of Lasik is how it boosts self-confidence and helps people overcome inferiority complexes. It enhances the cosmetic features of youngsters, particularly girls, who can say goodbye to glasses. The treatment is beneficial for eligible persons who have attained 18 years of age”, said Phaco and Lasik Surgeon Dr. Nazia Afrose.
