Department of Ophthalmology

INTRODUCTION

Eyes are important to appreciate the beauty of this world and cost effective and comprehensive evaluation and management of eye diseases is an essential key to the healthy eyes. With the high aims and objectives, Prof. Muhammad Moin, head of Ophthalmology department of Ameer u din Medical college and Lahore general hospital, took up the laborious task of effectively running and developing this department. With the dedicated team of experienced faculty, the department has acquired expertise to treat a wide range of patients with various types of eye diseases. It is one of the leading Ophthalmology Units in Punjab with the cutting-edge technology to provide comprehensive and sub-specialty services to the patients.    
Well-organized and intelligently managed this department, is composed of three units. Unit I is led by Prof. Muhammad Moin, who is a renowned ophthalmologist and Oculoplastics and Vitreoretinal surgeon. Unit II is headed by Prof. Tayyaba Gul Malik who is a comprehensive ophthalmologist with special expertise in corneal diseases. Unit III is supervised by Prof. Hussain Ahmad Khaqan, who is well-known for his Vitreo-retinal services and expert catering for all complicated retinal disorders. 
Along with the high volume services to patients with diverse ocular pathologies, there is a dedicated Ophthalmology Diagnostic center efficiently run by the trained personnel. Believing in prevention has led to the establishment of Retinal screening services in the Diabetic Medical Center of the hospital and a Retinopathy of Prematurity services in the Neonatology department.

  • FCPS / MCPS in Ophthalmology
  • FCPS in Vitreo-retina
  • FCPS in Oculoplastics
  • FRCS teaching and training program in Ophthalmology
  • MS Ophthalmology (UHS)
  • DOMS by (UHS)
Teaching of postgraduate trainees comprises of bedside teaching, seminars, lectures, journal club, CPC and surgical training under supervision. 
 

DEPARTMENTAL LIBRARY

We have a handsome collection of Ophthalmic books in departmental library, which include invaluable selection for ophthalmologists, FCPS/MCPS trainees and under graduates. There is also access to national and online international journals to keep the residents and faculty abreast with the latest advancements in Ophthalmology.
 

FIVE-YEAR PLAN

We thrive to strengthen our department in all fields of ophthalmology and our scientific goals for the next five years are: 
  • To start specialist cornea services in the department
  • To collaborate with national and international research centers for innovative research 
  • To expand diagnostic and surgical services in all sub-specialties
  • To start small research projects for the undergraduate students to involve them in writing and publication.
