In General Ophthalmology, patient’s eyes are thoroughly screened by Optometrists and then by Specialist Doctor. Once an overall examination is done, those requiring correction for refractive error will be prescribed spectacles and those require cataract surgery are counselled for surgery. General Ophthalmology service is an opportunity for our specialists to make a full assessment and decide on the best treatment for the patient. In case the patient required further investigations from any other specialty, will be referred to the specialty, like Retina, Cornea, orbit, Glaucoma, etc.
