The Mehta International Eye Institute (MIEI) has the most advanced, comprehensive list of
equipment, making it the foremost center for Ophthalmology in Asia.
Comprehensive eye examination:
This is used for spectacle refraction. Usage of the technique of evaluating spectacles. The biggest advantage of
phoropter is that once the axis is setup, fast refraction.
(Topcon 8000E. Japan): This unit automatically computes the spectacle power of the eye and at the same
time computes the exact axis and the amount of astigmatism. It also assesses the pupillar distance , thus enabling
that the glasses are set perfectly in the frames.
The Slit Lamp Biomicroscope, (Topcon : Japan): Eye to be magnified and examined in great. The slit enables
the front of the eye to be examined layer. Using special lenses even the retina can be seen under high
It is very essential that the intraocular pressure or IOP be glaucoma (raised IOP) is not developing.
evaluation of the pressure with a high level of accuracy.
Ophthanlmoscope (Heine Germany): in detail. There are two types of ophthalmoscopes, direct,
where one sees the retina directly, used and the Indirect Ophthalmoscope, head mounted, which
using a special lens enables the retina to be examined up to the extreme periphery.
Computerized Lensometer (Topcon Japan): Computes the power of the spectacles the
patient is wearing and as to whether the spectacle power the proper pupillary distance can be
computed with this instrument which has exceptional accuracy.
Contrast Sensitivity Testing (Vector Vision USA): In lens opacity (cataracts), utilizing the Pelli Robson charts
with a grating system the doctor can tell how cataract would be ready for removal. They also predict, early
glaucomatous damage and other retinal conditions.
Ultrascan (Alcon USA): In the presence of a mature cataract or vitreous be seen. Ultrasound tells you the
position of the retina, looks for retinal detachment or if there are opacities or foreign bodies. The Ultrascan is a very
high resolution equipment which can accurately show the changes.
Specular Non-Contact Computerized Microscopy (Topcon Japan): A sophisticated non contact
microscope which can, with high magnification, auto focus on the fine endothelial evaluate their function and
status. Very important for evaluation if the patient can withstand cataract surgery, surgery. Essentially a
computer which computes the ball and the curvature of the eye, and even the approx area where the lens will
finally stablilize in the eye.
