Speciality Services

TIO’s clinical services are divided into a number of specialist services, each handling a particular sub-speciality of ophthalmology.

Laser Eye Surgery

Tilganga’s Refractive Surgery Unit opened in January 2012 and offers the latest in laser technology for the correction of corneal problems. It has been developed with TIO partners to become a leader in laser surgery in the developing world.

Eye Bank

The concept of the Eye Bank was supported by the International Federation of Eye and Tissue Banks (IFETB), before TIO was even built in 1994.
