Other Details
Notes: At present, there has been an acute need for an Ophthalmologist as our Ophthalmic specialist is planning to go for further training and is likely to be away for the next 3 years.
Facility: The Ophthalmology department has got both OP and IP facilities. In our OPD, we have an Ophthalmic technician who is trained to do refraction and to assist in surgeries. The equipments available include two slit-lamps, direct and indirect ophthalmoscopes, applanation tonometer and Zeiss operating microscope. The surgeries are done once a week and are predominantly small-incision cataract surgeries (SICS). When there are enough personnel in the department, we also involve in community ophthalmic services.
Needs: Any Ophthalmologist who can handle common ophthalmic problems on an outpatient basis would be appreciated. Those who could continue the surgical services would be an added benefit.
