Few concepts, procedures and technologies introduced for the first time in Pune

Scleral 4 point Fixated IOL (1991) for high plus number above + 10. Patients who underwent cataract surgery without Lens implantation were benefited with new and natural vision.

Phacoemulsification surgery: Stitchless cataract surgery with Ultrasound (December 1994)

Innovation: Vertical (12 – 6 o’clock) Scleral fixated IOL. This keeps the lens in a natural position.

Topical anaesthesia phaco surgery. Cataract surgery with no injection, no stitches, no eye patch. Walk-in Walk-out cataract surgery (May 1996)

Morscher Ring (Germany): CTR – Capsulo Tension Ring for subluxated cataract 1996. If the Lens / Cataract is shifted due to some reason this technique helps to reposition the new lens / IOL in a natural position with regaining good vision.

Cionni’s Modified CTR: for subluxated cataract of more than 180 degrees with scleral fixation of ring – 2001. In cases of extreme displacement of lens / cataract this technique helps to put the new lens / IOL back in its natural position with excellent vision.

Limbal Relaxing Incisions for Astigmatism(Cylindrical number) : LRI – 1996. This helps to correct cylindrical numbers and improves quality of vision.

Introduced Cold Phaco Technology – 2003. Ultrasound is used like cold Laser energy. This improved visual recovery and quality of vision.

CustomVue, VISX, USA: Wavefront Guided Customised Lasik – April 2008. Apart from correction of spectacle numbers, they improve the quality of vision.

First in India- Galilei, Switzerland, Double Scheimpflug Camera for anterior segment analysis – March 2008. This works like CT scan of the front part of the eye giving minutest details in seconds with precision of all data.

Phakic Iris Claw IOL for High Myopia – 1999. Used in patients having very high spectacle numbers or for those who are not suitable for Laser Vision Correction.

Implantable Contact Lens (ICL), Switzerland 2001. Used in patients having very high spectacle numbers or for those who are not suitable for Laser Vision Correction.

Pseudophakic arcuate astigmatic keratotomy for high Astigmatism (Cylindrical number): – 6.5 D. Patients who underwent cataract surgery with Lens implantation but due to some reason left with high cylindrical numbers. This improves the quality and quantity of vision.

Pseudophakic (number remaining after cataract surgery): CustomVue Lasik-2009. This uses a customised Laser to correct the spectacle number remaining after cataract surgery.

Started microsurgery and IOL implantation for Pune Municipal Corporation, Kamala Nehru Hospital-1994. This helped corporation employees to get benefits of modern cataract surgery.

Dedicated 100% Laminar Flow Ophthalmic Operation Theatre with Hepa Filters-2007. This gives zero bacteria air flow in the operation theatre all the time reducing chances of infection.

Bioptics – 1998: Use of 2 techniques to correct spectacle numbers. When spectacle number is very high two techniques are used to correct spectacle number with Laser Vision Correction and Implantable Contact Lenses (ICL)

Toric Multifocal Intraocular Lens (IOL) – 2001. In patients undergoing cataract surgery this IOL corrects – far, near, intermediate (like computer use) and cylindrical number for lifetime.

Innovation: “ReLEx SMILE with VOZ and SAFE” – 2015. Dada Laser Eye Institute is the only centre in the world to use 30% less tissue for correction of spectacle number. This increases safety and higher numbers can be treated safely.

ReLEx SMILE is a new generation of Lasik Laser which is bladeless, flapless and Semi-Robotic with highest precision. Variable Optic Zone (VOZ) saves 30% tissue and Shearing Applied Force Extraction (SAFE) regains vision in 5 seconds. Both VOZ and SAFE have achieved multiple awards at state and national level.

Innovation: “Ladi Method of Immersion Scan” – 2018. This is the most accurate method of calculating Lens / IOL power which is implemented after cataract surgery for correction of spectacle number using monofocal, cylindrical and multifocal Lens / IOL.

Innovation: Pioneered the technique of “Epinucleus Mode Phacoemulsification” for stitch less cataract surgery, presented as a scientific research paper at ASCRS held at San Diego, California, USA in 2004.

Innovation: Presented free scientific paper on self developed innovative technique of “Ultrasound Chop for Phacoemulsification” for stitch less cataract surgery at International conference of ASCRS held at Washington DC, USA in April 2005.

Person with age of 101 years operated for cataract surgery with multifocal Lens / IOL using bladeless, stitchless, patchless and injection less Femto Laser surgery
