Introduction

Ophthalmology is the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the eyeball, which is important to be able to see things with sight and vision, as well as the adnexa of the eye, such as the eyelid and the orbital cavity. Our eyeballs are about the same size as a 10 yen coin. Hundreds of millions of cells with various functions are lined up coherently in this small eyeball. A slight disturbance of these cells can make for poor vision and can affect daily life.

Cataracts, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, and retinal detachment are eye-specific disorders, but systemic diseases can also affect the eyes. For example, diabetes and high blood pressure can interfere with the blood vessels of the retina or optic nerve and significantly affect the visual function. Rheumatoid arthritis may cause a dry eye, corneal ulcers, and scleritis. With hyperthyroidism (Graves disease), the eyelid may swell or you may see things double. As a general hospital, we work with each department of internal medicine, such as the Department of Neurology, and the other related departments such as Department of Otolaryngology, and Department of Neurosurgery to perform blood tests and image examination such as CT, MRI and so on as necessary, while considering the health of the patient's whole body.

Ophthalmology is conducted using a variety of examination equipment, and doctors work together with visual ability trainers and nurses. We work wholeheartedly on the patient's care, considering patients every day so that they can receive medical care with peace of mind. As a university hospital, we strive to provide the correct diagnosis and proper treatment, with safe, reliable and high-quality medical care and patient satisfaction. We look forward to your support.

Patient care at our department

There are ophthalmic diseases that can be treated with medication such as eye drops, local injections, and systemic administration, etc. and some diseases that require surgery to cure.

  • Cataract surgery has required hospitalization for 2 nights and 3days.
  • We introduce state-of-the-art equipment and perform small incision invitreous surgery using a wide-angle observation system for various retinal diseases that require surgery, such as retinal detachment, macular holes, epiretinal membranes, vitreous hemorrhage due to diabetic retinopathy, and traction retinal detachment, etc.
  • Corneal ulcers and keratitis are mainly treated with eye drops as an outpatient, but in severe cases, the patient may be hospitalized for intravenous treatment. The patients with uevitis such as Harada's disease, optic neuritis, and inflammatory diseases such as thyroid-associated ophthalmopathy are hospitalized and treated with steroid pulse therapy.
  • In principle, outpatient surgery is performed for eyelid diseases such as eyelid ptosis and eyelid entropion, as well as conjunctival diseases such as pterygium, and small tumors of the eyelid and conjunctiva. Children with cilial entropion (inverted eyelashes) are hospitalized for 2 nights and 3 days and surgery is performed under general anesthesia.
  • We perform diagnosis of corneal irregular astigmatism by detailed corneal topography, using Anterior Segment OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography), prescription of hard contact lenses for keratoconus, and diagnosis of shallow anterior chamber and angle-closure glaucoma, etc. The insertion of punctal plug is done in serious cases of dry eye.
  • We use fluorescent fundus angiography and optical coherence tomography (OCT) to consider adaptation of laser treatment and intravitreal injections of anti-VEGF drugs for fundus diseases such as diabetic retinopathy and retinal vein occlusion.
  • We also perform vitreous injections of anti-VEGF drugs for age-related macular degeneration.
  • It is a characteristic of our department to treat patients with ocular tumors such as with the eyelid, conjunctiva, and the orbital cavity as well as retinopathy of prematurity.
  • Botox injections for blepharospasm are done by appointment.
  • For the initial consultation, you must bring a letter of referral from your doctor to our doctor by 11:00 a.m. Monday through Friday. We do not accept initial consultation patients on Saturdays.
  • The fundus may be inspected using eye drops (mydriatic drug) that dilate the pupil. Please refrain from driving yourself to the hospital because this procedure will interfere with your driving to home. If you are wearing contact lenses, please bring your glasses.
  • We accept consultation outside of consultation hours by telephone only when a patient in our department is aware of a sudden change in their condition.

We resumed surgery such as retinal detachment, proliferative diabetic retinopathy, and vitreous hemorrhage. Please consult with us about the treatment of various retinal diseases such as age-related macular degeneration and retinal vein occlusion.
