It is a serious complication of the cataract surgery. It is an EMERGENCY. Early treatment can sometimes help in recovering good vision. Treatment in form of antibiotic injections inside the eye and eye drops is required. Surgery (Vitrectomy) may be required in majority of cases for early vision recovery.
It is the leading cause of vision loss in elderly above 65 years. It can be in two forms 1.Dry form and 2. Wet form. Dry form will need some form of multivitamins to stop the progression to wet form. The wet form may need injection in the eye to stop/ improve vision loss.
These are various disorder in which the blood vessels of retina get blocked : 1. Artery - Central retinal artery Occlusion (CRAO), Branch retinal artery occlusion (BRAO) . 2. Vein- Central vein occlusion (CRVO), Branch Retinal Vein occlusion (BRVO). These disorder are mostly caused by systemic problems like Diabetes and hypertension. Now-days, vision loss by these can be cured with injections in the eye.
It is the disease mostly affecting young males, though females can also be affected, specially during pregnancy causing blurred vision. In this disease there is accumulation of fluid between the retinal layers (neurosensory retina and RPE). It is mostly associated with stress and steroid use. It is mostly self resolving, but sometimes will need treatment in form of laser.
It is the disorder of Vitreomacular interface in which there is defect (Hole) in the central part of the retina (macula). OCT confirms the diagnosis. It causes loss of central vision. It is normal treated with surgery (vitrectomy with gas inside the eye).
It is the abnormality in some people with high minus number (more than - 5.00 Dioptre). The retina in these can be associated with number of problems like, macular hole, retinal detachment, new vessels formation etc leading to vision loss. All these will need timely and early intervention to prevent irreversible vision loss.
It is the disease of premature babies with low birth weight and exposure to oxygen. It is a BLINDING DISEASE if proper timely screening of these premature babies is not done. Sometimes it will need treatment if form of LASER or INJECTIONS in the eye. The later stages of this disease will need surgery with very poor outcomes.
Sometimes the eye can be ruptured due to sharp object or blunt trauma during ROAD SIDE ACCIDENTS, FIGHTS, WORKING IN FACTORY etc etc. There is tear in the outer wall of eye (Cornea/ sclera). It is an EMERGENCY situation. SURGERY is required to close the eye as early as possible. Sometimes multiple surgeries are required in this situation to save the eye.
