Ophthalmology Specialist: Dr. Zeeshan Cheema

Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine that deals with the anatomy, physiology and diseases of the eyeball. Our eye doctors (ophthalmologists) are trained surgeons and work closely with a team of specialised nurses and technicians to offer comprehensive patient treatment plans for both adults and children with vision problems and eye disorders. These include but are not limited to cataract surgery, corneal transplant surgery, retinal detachment surgery, glaucoma surgery, facial reconstruction, cosmetic surgery, squint surgery, orbital reconstruction and refractive surgery. Most of these services are delivered through the outpatient consulting clinics and/​​or day care surgery, although there may be exceptions where patients have to be admitted and stay overnight.
