The human eye is a marvel, a window to the world that grants us the privilege of sight. Yet, it's a delicate system, susceptible to various conditions that can affect our vision. This is where the field of ophthalmology steps in, offering expertise and solutions to preserve and enhance our most precious sense.

Ophthalmology, a branch of medicine and surgery, focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of eye disorders and visual system diseases.

Ophthalmologists are specialised physicians trained to address a wide spectrum of ocular conditions, ranging from common refractive errors to complex diseases affecting the eye.

Vision plays an integral role in our daily lives, influencing how we perceive the world. From admiring a scenic landscape to completing intricate tasks, clear vision is paramount. Ophthalmologists strive not only to correct impairments but also to maintain optimal eye health throughout one's life.

The Ophthalmology Department’s spectrum of care at Mediclinic Airport Road Hospital in Abu Dhabi  ranges from general eye examinations to the most complex eye surgeries, such as intraocular premium lens implant and advanced vitreoretinal surgeries. 

The team has access to a dedicated operating theatre specially designed for eye surgeries with advanced equipment and a specialised post-operative recovery area.

Services include:

Minimal sutureless cataract surgery (phacoemulsification) with premium intraocular lens implant for spectacle-free vision.
