Ophthalmology

The Ophthalmology Department of the Frontline Medicine Institute VIRTUS performs diagnostics and treats eye disorders.

Pathologies of eyes occur quite often, particularly after 40, when the first dystrophic changes in eye tissues began to be felt due to natural ageing of the organism.

However, the eyesight problems arise with young people as well whose professional activity is connected with long-time work at computers. When eyesight deteriorates, when «sandpaper» pain in the eyes and watery eyes appear, it is necessary to arrange a visit to an ophthalmologist.

Trust the professionals!

Timely diagnostics and treatment of eye pathologies help to avoid development of complications and preserve good eyesight.

Possibilities of the Ophthalmology Department of VIRTUS Clinic

The Ophthalmology Department of VIRTUS Clinic has wide technical possibilities to perform a thorough diagnostics of ophthalmic diseases and eyesight recovery. Our clinic is one of few where there is sophisticated equipment capable of a dynamical assessment of the eye pathology treatment effectiveness. For eye diagnostics, the Ophthalmology Department makes use of the following methods:

  • Ultrasonic examination of the anterior and posterior eye chambers
  • Ophthalmotonometry (occular pressure measurement)
  • Computerized examination of ocular refraction
  • Biomicroscopy (slit lamp-aided examination of the ocular structure)
  • Laser measurement of the main indices of an eye
  • Optical coherent tomography (OCT) – imaging of condition of the ophthalmic fundus and the optic nerve (this method is particularly important for assessing the course of glaucoma patient treatment)
  • Angio-OCT – diagnostics of the ophthalmic fundus vessels condition in the macular area without opaque injection

In the Ophthalmology Department of the Frontline Medicine Institute VIRTUS one can get therapeutic and surgical treatment of eye diseases. A laser vision correction method is applied here as well.

Treatment of eye diseases and eyesight recovery

In the Ophthalmology Department of VIRTUS Clinic the following treatments are performed:

  • Cataract
  • Myopia
  • Keratitis
  • Conjunctivitis
  • Glaucoma
  • Hyperopia
  • Astigmatism
  • Keratoconic

The Ophthalmology Department of VIRTUS Clinic includes a regenerative ophthalmology division. Thanks to the SmartCell-based preparations produced out of the patient’s own stem cells high results have been achieved when treating severe dystrophic eye diseases:

  • Corneal opacity and oedema
  • Post-operative complications (keratoconic)
  • Glaucoma
  • Immature cataract with high eyesight
  • Dystrophy of the vitreous body
  • Dystrophy of the eye retina (peripheral, central, congenital and pigment);
  • Dystrophy of the optic nerve
  • Partial atrophy of the optic nerve and other diseases

Cell therapy is also applied for treating eye traumas and inflammatory diseases that require conservative therapy (conjunctivitis, keratitis, etc.). Injection of cell-based preparations enables to start up recovery of the diseased eye tissues and preclude the progressive deterioration of eyesight.

Operative treatment of the ophthalmologic diseases in VIRTUS Clinic:

  • Treatment of cataracts by ultrasonic phacoemulsification method that includes implantation of the intraocular lens;
  • Anti-glaucoma operations
  • Dacryocystorhinostomy – surgical removal of the nasolacrimal duct obstruction
  • Pterygiumectomy
  • Chalazionectomy
  • Removal of xanthomas
  • Corneal transplantation

  • Check ocular pressure (ophthalmotonometry)
  • Fit lenses
  • Determine permeability of the lacrimal canals
  • Wash out and probe lacrimal canals in children with congenital dacryocystitis
  • Treat emergency conditions (acute conjunctivitis and other conditions)
  • Diagnose keratites

FAQ (in Ukrainian)

(Українська) Як зрозуміти, що є проблеми із зором або захворювання очей?

(Українська)

Симптомами захворювань очей є: погіршення зору, біль і різь в очах, сльозотеча, світлобоязнь, поява незникаючих плям перед очима, почервоніння і набряк очей, біль в ділянці надбрівної дуги. Якщо ввечері при погляді на лампочку людина бачить навколо неї веселку — це ознака глаукоми, тому потрібно пройти діагностику зору.

(Українська) Які аналізи призначає офтальмолог?

(Українська)

Якщо є підозра на запалення кон’юнктиви або рогівки, офтальмолог призначає мазок з очей для мікробіологічного посіву на мікрофлору.

(Українська) Як готуватися до огляду офтальмолога?

(Українська)

Якщо носите контактні лінзи, потрібно зняти їх приблизно за півгодини до огляду. Жінкам в день консультації з лікарем не рекомендується наносити макіяж. Якщо є результати попередніх офтальмологічних обстежень, їх можна взяти з собою на консультацію.
