The Pakistan Eye Bank Society is dedicated to providing exceptional eye care services to our patients, building on our strong foundation of expertise and commitment. In November 2012, our journey expanded when we established a referral clinic for renal transplant recipients. This initiative was born out of the increasing number of patients seeking ophthalmic care following their organ transplant surgeries at our esteemed institution. The use of immunosuppressant medications, vital for prolonging and preserving their lives, unintentionally gave rise to various ophthalmological conditions.
Over the years, our department has grown into a fully-equipped, well-established facility, unwavering in our dedication to delivering the highest standard of patient care. We now extend our services to patients across every specialty and subspecialty that SIUT covers, with an unyielding focus on patient well-being and treatment.
Our services encompass:
1. *Support for Renal and Liver Transplant Patients*: We offer specialized care to patients who have undergone renal and liver transplant procedures, addressing their unique ophthalmic needs.
2. *Comprehensive Care for SIUT Admissions*: Patients admitted to SIUT for a range of medical and surgical issues can rely on our expertise in eye care.
3. *Dialysis-Dependent Patients*: We cater to the specific needs of dialysis-dependent patients, understanding the importance of maintaining eye health in their journey.
4. *Collaboration with Gastrointestinal and Oncology Departments*: We work closely with patients from the gastrointestinal and oncology departments, ensuring that their ophthalmic concerns are addressed with utmost care.
5. *Services for Diabetic and Infectious Diseases Clinics*: Patients visiting the diabetic and infectious diseases clinics can count on our specialized eye care services.
Our commitment to patient care is reflected in our weekly ophthalmic surgeries, including emergency procedures when necessary. We are equipped with state-of-the-art technology and tools to deliver top-notch care, including:
