In addition we have the experience with the latest treatments including the use of immunosuppressive and immunomodulation for autoimmune eye diseases.

Another field of specialization is HIV/AIDS associated ocular infections wherein we have a combined experience of having seen over a few thousand HIV/ AIDS cases with ocular complications.
