Retinal Screening and Disease Treatment

Retinal Diseases

Retinal diseases are leading causes of blindness. Retinal diseases include age-related macular degeneration (AMD), diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachment, and arterial or venous vessel blockage.

Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)

Diabetic RetinopathyAge-related macular degeneration (AMD) is one of the leading causes of irreversible severe visual loss in individuals over the age of 60. AMD affects the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye, impeding one’s ability to see fine details clearly. Early retinal screening can detect the onset of the disease early and appropriate treatment can be selected promptly to prevent visual loss.

Retinal Disease Screening

Retinal Screening and Disease TreatmentEarly retinal screening is crucial in detecting the presence and severity of retinal diseases to prevent further damage and visual loss.

Retinal screening involves a detailed retinal examination and using special diagnostic machines such as the OCT scan of the retina, which can precisely detect abnormalities of the retina. These tests can help to show the nature and severity of the retinal, such as abnormal vessels, vascular leakage, or swelling of the retina.

Retinal Disease Treatment

Retinal laser surgery may be performed for various retinal conditions, such as AMD, retinal tears, and diabetic retinopathy. A high-energy beam of light will destroy the abnormal blood vessels. It is performed as a simple outpatient procedure and usually takes less than 20 minutes to complete. Patients can return to work the day after the retinal laser surgery.

New and Improved Treatments For Retinal Disease

We offer a new and improved injection treatment for wet age-related macular degeneration. Special drugs like Lucentis (ranibizumab) and Avastin (bevacizumab) are injected into the eye to stop abnormal blood vessels from growing and to control the inflammation. These medications work by inhibiting proteins called Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) that promote the growth of abnormal blood vessels in the retina, contributing to the development of macular degeneration.

Vitreo-Retinal Surgery

Surgery may be required in eyes with severe retinal disease, such as retinal detachment, severe bleeding into the eye (vitreous haemorrhage), or severe proliferative diabetic retinopathy. This is in the form of a vitrectomy, which involves inserting small probes into the eye to treat the vitreo-retinal condition.
