Blindness Can be Avoided Through Early Treatments

DubaiDr. Tanveer Chaudhry, Consultant Ophthalmologist and Head of Ophthalmology at Agha Khan University Hospital () announced “ Cataracts are the leading cause of treatable , particularly in developing countries”. He said at a recent health awareness lecture organized at Esmaili Centre, “Surgery is quick and recovery is very rapid too. With modern day operations, complications rate has reduced as well. One should be aware of the symptoms cataract will produce and have it removed at appropriate time”. AKUH Representative Office in Dubai managed the lecture as part of its community service program.

He revealed that squinting is mis-alignment of the eyes and is usually seen in children although most parents do not take steps to get it treated at an early age. He added “Many squints are controlled with glasses only and surgery is done in remaining. Patching may be advised to improve the vision in the squinting eye surgery, if required should be done early than later as results are much better in childhood”. Diabetes is considered a major reason of blindness but most patients are not aware of the changes and damage they can get in their eyes through it, as Tanveer explained.
