In Radiant Opticals optometrists from various instituions like BITS Pilani, Sankara Nethralya are working as optometric consultants.
Radiant opticals is an optometric clinic attached with opticals. We have autorefracto meter (made in japan) by Topcon is used to detect the refractive error of the eyes precisely. We have slit lamp to examine the condition of the eye ball. We do eye exam both by autorefracto meter as well as using retina scope. The retina scope made by Keeler helps us in doing thorough refraction. The ophthalmascope made by Keeler, helps in examine the inner parts of the eye. The lenso meter is used to determine the quality of the spectacle lenses as well as its power. In the optomertic clinic itself we have attached contact lens section also. Here we fit contact lens of all varities like hard and soft contact lenses.
Frequently Asked Questions
Far-sightedness, also known as long-sightedness and hyperopia, is a condition of the eye in which light is focused behind, instead of on, the retina. This causes close objects to be blurry, while far objects may appear normal. As the condition worsens, objects at all distances may be blurred. Other symptoms may include headaches and eye strain.
Near-sightedness, also known as short-sightedness and myopia, is a condition of the eye where light focuses in front of, instead of on, the retina.This causes distant objects to be blurry while close objects appear normal. Other symptoms may include headaches and eye strain. Severe near-sightedness increases the risk of retinal detachment, and other eye diseases.
This problem is known as Presbyopia, is a condition associated with aging of the eye that results in progressively worsening ability to focus clearly on close objects. Symptoms include a hard time reading small print, having to hold reading material farther away, headaches, and eyestrain. Different people will have different degrees of problems. So,from the age of 40, it is necessary for every one to get their eyes tested once in a year.
Previously known as ophthalmic opticians, optometrists are primary health care specialists trained to examine the eyes to detect defects in vision, signs of injury, ocular diseases or abnormality and problems with general health.
A detailed examination of the eye can reveal conditions such as high blood pressure or diabetes. Optometrists make a health assessment, offer clinical advice and when necessary prescribe spectacles or contact lenses. In addition, optometrists can dispense, fit and supply spectacles or contact lenses.
LASIK is the abbreviation standing for laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis, a kind of laser eye surgery designed to change the shape of the cornea to eliminate or reduce the need for glasses and contact lenses in cases of severe myopia (nearsightedness).LASIK is an ambulatory procedure done in an ophthalmologist’s clinic. Numbing eye drops are used. The eyelids are held open so that there is no interference with the laser. The ophthalmologist creates an ultrathin flap on the front of the eye with a precise automated instrument. The flap is gently lifted and the preprogrammed laser then reshapes the inner cornea to refocus the eye. The flap is repositioned and holds itself in place, healing naturally without the need for any stitches. The laser pulses last on the average between 30 and 60 seconds. In all, LASIK takes about 20 minutes to do both eyes. The procedure is without much pain and recovery is quick.
From the age of 40 years people need convex lens to focus near objects. if already they have been using powered lenses, then this will be added on top of it. that is called BIFOCAL LENSES. Nowadays,this bifocal is replaced by progressive lenses or multifocal lenses. Progressive lenses help people to see clearly across all distances without tilting their head too much. Progressive lenses are often preferred cosmetically as they don’t have the visible line that separates the two different zones of a bifocal lens Progressive lenses are corrective lenses suitable for refractive errors like presbyopia. The lenses have a gradient of power, which are stronger at one end of the lens than the other.. Instead, progressive lenses provide a seamless graduation of lens strength. This avoids the jump in vision a wearer gets with bifocals and trifocals, and actually trains the eye to improve vision.

Our eyes are an important part of your health. There are many things you can do to keep them healthy and make sure you are seeing your best. Follow these simple steps for maintaining healthy eyes well into your golden years.
- Have a comprehensive eye exam.
- Know your family’s eye health history.
Eat right to protect your sight. You’ve heard carrots are good for your eyes. But eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, particularly dark leafy greens such as spinach, kale, or collard greens is important for keeping your eyes healthy, too.i Research has also shown there are eye health benefits from eating fish high in omega-3 fatty acids, such as salmon, tuna, and halibut.
- Maintain a healthy weight. Being overweight or obese increases your risk of developing diabetes and other systemic conditions, which can lead to vision loss, such as diabetic eye disease or glaucoma. If you are having trouble maintaining a healthy weight, talk to your doctor.
- Wear protective eyewear. Wear protective eyewear when playing sports or doing activities around the home. Protective eyewear includes safety glasses and goggles, safety shields, and eye guards specially designed to provide the correct protection for a certain activity. Most protective eyewear lenses are made of polycarbonate, which is 10 times stronger than other plastics. Many eye care providers sell protective eyewear, as do some sporting goods stores.
- Quit smoking or never start. Smoking is as bad for your eyes as it is for the rest of your body. Research has linked smoking to an increased risk of developing age-related macular degeneration, cataract, and optic nerve damage, all of which can lead to blindness.
- Be cool and wear your shades. Sunglasses are a great fashion accessory, but their most important job is to protect your eyes from the sun’s ultraviolet rays. When purchasing sunglasses, look for ones that block out 99 to 100 percent of both UV-A and UV-B radiation.
- Give your eyes a rest. If you spend a lot of time at the computer or focusing on any one thing, you sometimes forget to blink and your eyes can get fatigued. Try the 20-20-20 rule: Every 20 minutes, look away about 20 feet in front of you for 20 seconds. Clean your hands and your contact lens properly. Practice workplace eye safety.
