About Us

WHO WE ARE

The Pioneers of
Global Standard Eye Care
in Porbandar.

In the year 2000, eye care in Porbandar district was in its infancy. Cataract Surgeries were performed by old generation technique-ECCE-extracapsular cataract extraction, while nearby towns like Jamnagar and Rajkot had hospitals performing new generation techniques like Phaco-Emulcification.
With the desire to provide the latest and quality eye care of Global Standards, we established Shivam Eye Hospital on 8 April 2001. We were the first to start Phaco-Emulcifation and implantation of foldable Intraocular Lens under topical anesthesia “No injection No patch Quick Vision Cataract Surgery.” Very few of hospitals in entire state were offering this facility.

OUR FACILITIES

Medical technology for cataract treatment has advanced significantly in the past few decades. Anesthesia is now administered in the form of eye drops instead of injections, and in most cases, patients no longer require sutures after cataract removal.

Phacoemulsification, also called “phaco,” is a cataract-removal procedure that uses an ultrasound device to break up and remove a natural lens that is cloudy because of cataracts through very small incisions. Literally, phacoemulsification means liquification of the natural lens of the eye. It is derived from the Greek word “phakos,” which means lens.

The Centurion Vision System is the most advanced technology platform for cataract removal with phacoemulsification – a surgical technique that uses ultrasound energy to break up and remove cataracts. We at Shivam Eye Hospital use the Centurion Vision System for superior outcomes in cataract surgery.

This system, is specially designed to provide eye surgeons with superior cataract removal capabilities. It is the only intelligent phacoemulsification technology that optimizes every step of cataract removal surgery.

The Centurion Vision System continuously and automatically adapts to changing conditions within the eye during surgery. Throughout the procedure, it provides greater stability of the anterior chamber — the fluid-filled space between the iris and the innermost surface of the cornea.

In a cataract removal procedure, the cloudy natural lens is surgically removed and replaced with an intraocular lens (IOL) that allows clearer, sharper images to reach the retina. Multifocal technology provides a wide range of premium intraocular lenses that offer a broader range of vision, both near and at a distance. In many cases, multifocal technology can reduce or remove the need for glasses or contact lenses after cataract surgery.

Astigmatism is a common cause of blurred vision. It occurs when the cornea has an irregular shape or as a result of an irregularity in the curvature of the lens. If you need surgery to remove cataracts causing vision loss, Dr. Manoj Joshi at Shivam Eye Hospital can correct astigmatism at the time of surgery with strategically placed incisions in the cornea or with a specially designed intraocular lens (IOL) to replace a clouded natural lens.

When the cornea or lens of the eye is irregularly shaped, it prevents light from focusing properly on the retina (the light-sensitive surface at the back of the eye). This can cause blurred vision at any distance, leading to discomfort and headaches. Astigmatism often occurs with other vision conditions, such as nearsightedness (myopia) and farsightedness (hyperopia), referred to collectively as refractive errors (because they affect the way the eyes refract the light).

LASIK is laser eye surgery performed to correct myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism (deviation from a spherical curvature in the eye or lens causing distorted images). All these conditions are caused by focusing errors that can be corrected by changing the shape of the cornea (the transparent layer forming the front of the eye).

A cornea that is too steep causes myopia. A cornea that is too flat causes hyperopia. A football-shaped cornea is called an astigmatism.

LASIK is unique because instead of addressing or redirecting the light, it addresses the shape of the eyes themselves, providing a permanent change. With LASIK, you don’t have to worry anymore about putting glasses on, putting contacts in, or not being able to see well when you open your eyes in the morning. Your eyes themselves are corrected–you don’t need anything to help you see.

While LASIK does have a low chance of risk, studies actually show that people who use contact lenses are 10 times more likely to experience vision loss or even blindness from wearing contact lenses than from having LASIK eye surgery.

PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) was at one time the most common laser eye surgery performed. It uses the same excimer laser as the LASIK procedure to reshape the outer cornea to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. While LASIK surgery is the more commonly performed procedure, PRK offers the same visual results for those patients who cannot undergo LASIK surgery.

During the procedure, the surgeon first administers a local anesthetic via eye drops so that the patient does not feel pain during the surgery. An eyelid speculum is then placed over the eye to prevent the patient from blinking. Next, the surgeon gently removes the epithelial (superficial skin) cells from the outer layer of the cornea. Next, the excimer laser, custom programmed with the patient’s eye, reshapes the corneal tissue with quick pulses of concentrated light. This process usually takes less than one minute. Once this is complete, the doctor places a bandage contact lens on the eye and the surgery is complete.

The OCULUS Keratograph 5M is an advanced corneal topographer with a built-in real keratometer and a color camera optimized for external imaging. Unique features include examining the meibomian glands, non-invasive tear film break-up time and the tear meniscus height measurement and evaluating the lipid layer.

Advancing clinical efficiency in glaucoma.

Humphrey Field Analyzer 3 simplifies trial lens correction dependent on the patient’s refractive data, to decrease setup time. Zeiss also says the gaze tracker around the HFA3 provides initialization and works compared with earlier HFA models, and that the touch screen interface for technicians is quicker and more intuitive.

A tonometer is a diagnostic tool used by eye care professionals to measure the intraocular pressure (IOP) inside a patient’s eyes. A patient’s IOP can help an ophthalmologist or optometrist determine a patient’s risk for developing glaucoma — a disease that damages the optic nerve of the eye, usually resulting in vision loss or even blindness. A non-contact tonometer uses a small puff of air (which is why it’s many times referred to as the “puff test”) to measure an eye’s pressure. Known as pneumotonometry, the air puff flattens the patient’s cornea in a non-invasive way, meaning eyes do not need to be numbed prior to the test.
