Retina & Vitreous

In 2002 Bharti Eye Foundation started the state-of-the-art Retina and Vitreous Surgery unit which incorporates the Digital Angiography system for the eye along with most advanced Lasers for treatment of diseases of Retina with complete Vitreo-Retina Surgical Facilities at the most reasonable costs. This has distinction of managing most complicated cases in the field of Retina and vitreous surgery.

Diabetes starts affecting the retina when the person has had diabetes for over 12 years. Though a good glycaemic ( Blood sugar ) control is necessary for a general well being and may delay the appearance of Diabetic Retinopathy, it may not halt it altogether. It is necessary for a diabetic to get his eyes checked up atleast once a year to know if it has affected the retina. A Fluorescien Angiography ( FFA ) may be required to assess the affect and if there is any, a Laser photocoagulation is done to treat it. It has been seen that an early treatment with laser will benefit most and may be able to preserve excellent vision for a life time.

Till now the procedure for cataract operation was Phaco-emulsification or "Phaco" in which the cataract is emulsified with ultrasonic waves and is then removed from the eye through a small cut from which a Foldable IOL is inserted.

In most of advanced Diabetic Retinopathy cases it might become necessary to correct the damage , remove the blood ( Heamorrhage ) and do endo-laser with vitrectomy ( V-R Surgery).

Vitrectomy for Diabetic Retinopathy is an advanced Microsurgery of the eye and is available in the Retina Services of Bharti Eye Foundation.
