Retina & Vitro Retina Services

Retina dosorder that arise from the Diabetes Mellitus are gradually increasing in the developing countries, Recently about 32 million Indians suffer from diabetes. WHO predicts the number will increase by 2030 to about 80 million.

The clinic manages a vast number with Fundus camera is utilized for documentation and demonstration of dynamic changes and micro vascular structures of retina. Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a noninvasive procedure for imaging all the layers of the retina partucularly surrounding the disc and macula. The OCT is essential for retinal nerve fibre layer analysis and diagnosis of various macular disorders. Ultra sonogram is used to diagnose posterior segment disorders in cases of anteriorsegment opacities. Different laser deliverysystems are available with thw double frequency YAG laser assisted with TV monitaring system. The laser delivery with Slit lamp is used for treating many retinal vascular disorders. Indirect laser delivery is performed for sealing the peripheral retinal breaks especially in myopia. It is also essential for treating the retinopathy of prematuarity and the seedlings of retinoblastoma. Endolaser delivery systems are particularly useful during the retinal detachment surgery, sealing the retinal tears and treatingthe peripheral vasculitis with internal approach. For teaching purpose, inderct video camera system is available. Vitreo retinal surgery is performed regularly. The operation Theatres are well equipped with posterior segment operating microscope with BIOM and TV monitaring system. State of the art vitrectomy apparatus is used during vitrectomy. Very specialized operations like macular hole surgery, peeling of the internal limiting membrane, management of advanced diabetic retinopathy with tractional retinal detachment and removal of intra ocular foreign body, are performed with delicately. The skilled Vitreo retinal surgeons also have to manage all the complicated referred cases like nucleus and IOL dropping and endophthalmitis. Along with the diagnostic and operative VR procedures, the medical management like intra vitreal application of anti VEGF in retinal vascular dysfunctions and antimicrobial intra vitreal injection in infective case3s are regularly performed. One multicentric study of efficacy of anti VEGF in internal vascular occulation disorders is going on. Heidelburg Multi imaging facility, is also available.
