Ocular pathology & bacteriology

These tests are done in partnership with El Borg lab.

Pathological specimen from a mass excised from the eye lid, conjunctiva, iris or other parts of the globe is described by our ophthalmologists and interpreted after being processed by the lab technicians.

The bacteriological studies for conjunctival smears or corneal scrapings  in cases of resistant conjunctivitis or corneal ulcer are essential, to prescribe the appropriate treatment. The smear is taken under sterile conditions by our ophthalmologists
