Eyeglass examination

If you have a problem in seeing far or near distances, you may be having a refractive disorder. For comfortable eyeglasses Nile International Hospital offers you eyeglass examination with modern technology.

Does your child watch T.V at a very close range? He / she may need eyeglasses. Any reason that causes decrease in vision (especially in one eye) in first 6 years of age may cause amblyopia (lazy eye). Early diagnosis and treatment is needed to prevent permanent decrease in vision.

Cataract Examination

Incase you have vision problems like clouded-blurred vision, colors look faded, increasing difficulty with vission at night, you may be having cataract in your eye! Cataract is the clouding of the lens in the eye which causes decrease in vision. It is the most commonn cause of blindness in the world. In eyes which have cataracts, seeing through cloudy lenses is simılar to the effect of looking through a frosty window.

Surgery is the only effective treatment. It involves removing the cloudy lens and replacing it with an artificial lens. In our Eye Department we are happy to offer our patients the PHACO technique for cataract surgery. It is the first of its kind in Jinja. In PHACO techniquue the incision is less than 3.0mm and it provides you better results with short surgery and recovery time

Glaucoma examination

Is there any history of blindness in your family? You may have glaucoma. Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of adult blindness. It is a condition that causes damage to the eye nerve. If you are over age 40 and have a family history of glaucoma, you should have a complete eye examination with an eye doctor every one to two years.In our eye department we offer modern surgical techniques like    Ex-press mini shunt implantation and Ahmed glaucoma valve implantation to our patients.

Retina (nerve layer inside the eye) examination

Do you have diabetes? You have to check your eye routinely for diabetic retinopathy!

The retina is a nerve layer inside the eye. Diabetic retinopathy is a condition that occurs inside of the eye. It occurs in persons with diabetes, and causes progressive damage to the retina.

In people who have been with diabetes for more than 5 years, annual eye examination is required.
