RETINA AND VITREOUS DISORDERS

RETINA AND VITREOUS DISORDERS

1.     MANAGEMENT OF RETINAL DETACHMENT

IT IS THE SEPARATION OF THE RETINAL LAYERS (NEURO-SENSORY RETINA) FROM THE UNDERLYING RETINAL LAYER (RPE) WITH THE ACCUMULATION OF FLUID IN BETWEEN CAUSING SUDDEN LOSS OF VISION. IT IS CAUSED BY BREAK/ HOLE OR TEAR IN THE RETINA. IT IS MOSTLY TREATED WITH SURGERY: 1. SCLERAL BUCKLING (FROM OUTSIDE THE EYE)- BY PUTTING A SILICON TYRE AROUND THE EYE. 2. VITRECTOMY: BY GOING INSIDE THE EYE AND SETTLING THE RETINA WITH THE HELP OF OIL OR GAS.

3.  MANAGEMENT OF VASCULAR OCCLUSIONS

1. 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 A DAYS VISION LOSS BY THESE CONDITIONS CAN BE MANAGED WITH INJECTIONS IN THE EYE AND LASER.

4. MANAGEMENT OF CENTRAL SEROUS CHORIORETINOPATHY

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.

FACILITIES AVAILABLE

  • RETINAL BUCKLING SURGERY 

  •  VITRECTOMY

5. MANAGEMENT OF AGE RELATED MACULAR DEGENERATION

 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 AND ANTIOXIDENTS  TO STOP THE PROGRESSION TO WET FORM. THE WET FORM NEEDS INJECTION IN THE EYE TO IMPROVE AND STABLIZE THE VISION.
