Cataract : 

Dr. Ikeda has very vast experience in cataract surgeries including phacoemulsification, including topical surgeries, small incision cataract surgery.  She has performed over 5000 cases of Phacoemulsification under topical anaesthesia (only with numbing eye drops without injection, pad, and bandage). She is well experienced in managing all complicated cataract cases including uvetic, traumatic, paediatric cataracts as well as cataracts associated with corneal scars and a small pupil.

Refractive Surgery :

Dr. Ikeda Lal performed over 3000+ Lasik Surgeries including SBK LASIK, C-LASIK (customized LASIK), iLASIK (Bladefree or Femto-LASIK + customized LASIK). She has vast experience in ICL surgeries and routinely performs both spherical and Toric ICL. We use imported ICL at our centre which gives us precise and accurate results.


Dr. Ikeda is an expert in managing corneal ectasias. We use the pentacam (advanced corneal topography system) to diagnose keratoconus and imported Collagen cross linking treatment system to prevent progression of disease. The treatments offered include C3R  (collagen cross linking), INTACS ( intracorneal ring segments for stabilisation of cornea and better visual acuity), C3R + PRK , RGP/Corneal/Rose K/Miniscleral contact lenses, DALK ( Deep Anterior Lamellar Keratoplasty) and full thickness keratoplasty. The treatment is customised individually for each patient to help them achieve optimal visual outcome.

Cornea :

  • Penetrating keratoplasties: She has successfully performed 400 keratoplasties (including therapeutic, optical PKs, PK with cataract surgery, IOL exchange, regrafts, paediatric PKs) and she is well experienced in managing all complications postoperatively.

  • Patch grafts: She is experienced in operating for indications like infective keratitis, Mooren’s ulcer, tunnel infection.
  • Ocular Trauma: She has performed over 500 corneal tear repairs, cataract surgery post corneal tear repair, foreign body removal from cornea and anterior chamber, amniotic membrane grafts for chemical injuries, cyanoacrylate glue, and anterior chamber formation for corneal perforations.

She is an expert in diagnosing and treating all corneal disorders, including:

  • Infections (keratitis)
  • Dystrophies and degenerations of the cornea
  • Bullous keratopathy (swelling of the cornea) after cataract surgery or without the lens of the eye (aphakia)
  • Keratoconus (thinning and bulging of the cornea)
  • Refractive errors (nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism)
  • Dry eyes
  • Vernal keratoconjunctivitis (an allergic eye disease)
  • Ocular surface diseases, such as Stevens-Johnson syndrome, ocular cicatricial pemphigoid, and chemical injuries (both acute and chronic)
  • Ocular inflammations, including peripheral ulcerative keratitis, scleritis, and anterior uveitis

In her routine outpatient clinic, she performs procedures and investigations such as:

  • Corneal scraping (to collect a sample of cells for testing)
  • Cyanoacrylate glue application (to treat corneal ulcers and perforations)
  • Nd:YAG capsulotomy (to create a hole in the posterior lens capsule after cataract surgery)
  • Iridotomy (to create a hole in the iris to treat glaucoma)
