About Dr. Kelkar’s Eye Hospital

As we proudly enter into our 15th year of patient service, we look back with immense joy and satisfaction on our journey from just a small OPD cabin to a full fledged Eye Hospital having all facilities for patient eye care. This journey, although challenging and difficult has also been extremely satisfying for us.

We are also extremely grateful to the people of Thane for loving us and trusting us with their most precious organs – their eyes. This trust shown in our abilities, also bestows a great responsibility, which we will always strive to fulfill.

We are very happy to present our new website, so that patients can have access to all the relevant information about our Hospital, thus enabling them to connect with us and make informed decisions about availing our services.

Dr. Kelkar’s Eye Hospital is headed by Dr. Rahul Kelkar. As a responsible eye surgeon, eye doctor, ophthalmologist in Pokhran Road (Thane), he aims to offer affordable medical services related to ophthalmology to the people in and around Thane.

StreamLight Trans-PRK

Advanced Surface Ablation Technology Now available at Dr. Kelkar’s Eye Hospital in association with I – Sight Lasik Centre Thane.

I am very happy to share with you a new and exciting Technology for Laser Vision Correction. In association with I – Sight Lasik Centre Thane, we have started offering our patients the new StreamLight Trans-PRK Advanced Surface Ablation Technique for getting rid of their Glasses or Contact Lenses. This is a Revolutionary New Technique of Performing Laser Vision Correction. In Conventional Lasik, a Corneal Flap is first fashioned out of the patient’s cornea, using a Microkeratome, and after that, the Excimer Laser is used to reshape the underlying cornea. In Bladeless Lasik, the flap is made using the Femtosecond Laser, instead of the Microkeratome.

However, the minimal risk of Flap related complications still remains in both these procedures. In StreamLight Trans-PRK, No flap is made, thus eliminating the risk of flap related complications. This is a totally No Touch technique, in which the Excimer Laser is used to first remove the superficial Epithelium of the cornea, and then the same laser is used to reshape the cornea.

This maintains the Structural Integrity of the Cornea, vastly reducing the risk of ectasia in the years following the procedure.

The only drawback is longer recovery time compared with Conventional Lasik. Complete recovery from this new procedure takes 3-4 weeks, while regular Lasik takes just one week for recovery.

All our lasik patients undergo a thorough evaluation process before their laser vision correction, after which we can take a decision about which procedure might best suit the particular patient.
