We offer the following services:
If you have a problem in seeing far or near distances, you may be having a refractive disorder. For comfortable eyeglasses Afya 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.
In case you have vision problems like clouded-blurred vision, colors look faded, increasing difficulty with vision 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 common cause of blindness in the world. In eyes which have cataracts, seeing through cloudy lenses is similar 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 Malindi. In PHACO technique the incision is less than 3.0mm and it provides you better results with short surgery and recovery time
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.
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.
