Retina & Vitreous Treatment in Delhi NCR

Vitreo-retinal diseases are conditions that affect structures inside the eye called the vitreous and the retina. Vitreo-retinal diseases such as Diabetic retinopathy, Age related macular degeneration, Retinal detachment, Macular hole etc. require urgent management. Patients often require laser therapy, intravitreal injections in the eye or an eye surgery. Prompt treatment must be done for recovery of vision.

The retina is the thin layer of tissue that lines the back of the eye, while the vitreous is the gel-like substance that fills the space between the retina and the lens. AKIO offers several different types of treatments available for conditions affecting the retina and vitreous, including:

  1. Laser photocoagulation: This treatment uses a laser to seal or destroy abnormal blood vessels in the retina, which can cause conditions such as diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration.

  2. Injections: Medications can be injected into the eye to treat various conditions, including age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and retinal vein occlusion.

  3. Vitrectomy: This surgical procedure involves removing the vitreous gel from the eye and replacing it with a saline solution. It may be used to treat conditions such as retinal detachment, macular hole, and vitreous hemorrhage.

  4. Cryotherapy: This treatment uses extreme cold to freeze and destroy abnormal tissue in the retina. It may be used to treat retinal tears, detachments, and other conditions.

  5. Scleral buckling: This surgical procedure involves placing a silicone band around the eye to push the retina back into place in cases of retinal detachment.

  6. Pneumatic retinopexy: This procedure involves injecting a gas bubble into the vitreous cavity to push the retina back into place in cases of retinal detachment. The patient may need to maintain a certain head position for a period of time to ensure the bubble remains in the correct position.

The appropriate treatment for a particular condition will depend on the specific diagnosis and the severity of the condition. It is important to consult with an eye doctor or retina specialist for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.
