Vitreo-Retinal Surgery in Dahod
The retina can be compared to the photographic film inside camera. When the focused light hits the retina, a “picture” is taken. Messages about this picture are sent to the brain through the optic nerve.
Degenerations of the retina can occur in young adults and in old age. These may be inherited in some instances. Common diseases like diabetes and high blood pressure can also adversely affect the retina, sometimes leading to blindness. One of the most common retinal condition is retinal detachment. In this condition the retina gets detached from the back wall of the eye rather like peeling wallpaper.
Many sophisticated divices are available to detect glaucoma at very early stages thus preserving good vision.
Diabetic Retinopathy
Diabetes produces weakening of the blood vessel in the body. The tiny delicate retina blood vessels are particularly susceptible. This deterioration of retinal blood vessels, accompanied by structural changes in the retina may go through a series of changes may progress from one to the next.
A large variety of conditions can affect the vitreous and retina that lie on the back part of the eye that is not readily visible and thus neglected. Due to the ageing process, the vitreous can separate from the retina and get detached.
Also, diabetes which is considered a “global epidemic” is a prime reason for vision loss globally. Diabetic retinopathy is main cause of blindness associated with diabetes apart from other range of eye diseases. Approximately 1 in 10 will develop a vision threatening form of the disease but can be treated as well.
Vitroretinal department examines patients at risk, provides preventive treatments and performs vitroretinal surgery with sophisticated devices.
