BASE HOSPITAL SERVICES

The base hospital services can be broadly divided into Outpatient Services and Inpatient/Daycare services.

Outpatient

This is basically for the patients who can walk into the hospital with a suspected eye problem. The following is the process:

  • Patients walk into the block A of the building where they will be registered as an outpatient.

  • All patients are required to pay a fixed sum for the OPD consultation fee is valid for 1 month or 1 more visit which ever is earlier.

  • Patients with a white ration card and covered under Aarrogyasri are sent to the B Block where they are examined free of cost in the purview of the scheme.

  • On special cases, patients who do not carry a white ration card but still cannot afford to pay are also sent to block B for a subsidized check up.

  • The process starts with an initial vision check up and then a consultation with the Ophthalmologist.

  • Depending on the patient’s condition, he is either referred to a specialty clinic in the 1st floor or advised surgery.

  • The entire process may take upto 2 to 3 hrs. In some cases, some non-surgical interventions may be needed which also can be completed during the outpatient visit.

 

The paid patients are lead to OPD – 1 or OPD – 2 which are centrally air conditioned. Each OPD has three vision testing chambers and four consultation rooms with all the modern equipment. There are specially designed dilatation chairs for the patients whose eyes need to be medicated for better examination.

 

Inpatient

  1. Once the patient is advised surgery, he is directed to a counselor who would explain in detail the options available to him.

  2. A detailed technical and emotional counseling on the precautions and outcomes of the surgery is given to the patient.

  3. Once the patient selects the package, he is posted for surgery on a date of his choice depending on the slots available.

  4. On the day of the surgery, the patient is admitted into the day care pre – OP ward in the third floor. It is a luxurious centrally air conditioned facility where the patient is prepared for the surgery and waits for his turn.

  5. Once the surgery is performed, which usually lasts about 20 minutes, the patient is either discharged or accommodated in a private room in the hospital, if he so desires.

  6. The next day of the surgery, the patient is expected to come back when his bandage to the eyes shall be removed and detailed post operative counseling is provided.
