WHAT IS RETINA ?
Retina is a layer of tissue in the back of your eye. It senses light & sends images to the brain. The most vital part in retinal tissue is macula. Retinal disorders mainly affect this tissue & in turn deteriorate your vision.
SYMPTOMS OF RETINAL DISORDERS?
Retinal disorders are associated with vision loss and quality of vision. Depending on the type of the disorder, symptoms can be gradual or sudden. Ageing is one of the most common causes. Consider regular eye check up for timely diagnosis.
RETINA TREATMENT OPTIONS
Used in diabetic retinopathy, ROP -retinopathy of prematurity, retinal vein occlusion, retinal breaks/holes, lattice, certain tumors. At present, laser is used for above mentioned conditions. It causes retinal burn which causes retinal breaks & regressions of new vessels.
It is a surgical procedure to treat eye problems involving retina, macula & vitreous like retinal detachment, macular hole, epiretinal membrane , vitreous haemorrhage & diabetic retinopathy complications. Upto 50 % of the patients requiring VR surgery present as emergency or urgent cases.
Standard of care is laser treatment .In some cases intra-vitreal can be given. In advanced stages, Complex vitro-retinal surgery is required.
Uveitis is a challenging disease to treat. Although most causes inflammatory but injections also play a major role. Clinical tests are done in search of potential cause. Eye drops in combination with systemic (oral or IV) anti inflammatory, anti infective medicine are mostly prescribed. Intra vitreal or peri ocular injections are sometimes given to augment treatment.
In this procedure, medicine is delivered directly into the back of the eye near retina which enables highly targeted drug therapy maximizing therapeutic delivery. Anti VGEF injections are used in cases of diabetes retinopathy, uveitis, ROP- (retinopathy of prematurity), CME (cystoid macular edema), CNVM (choroidal neovascular membranes), Endophthalmitis etc. Steroids e.g. Tricort are also used in above mentioned conditions depending upon clinical evaluation. Antibiotics are used in intra ocular injections.
