Treatment of Macular & Retinal Diseases

Treatment Options

  • Eye Injections
    • Anti-VEGF injections are used to slow down or prevent the growth of abnormal blood vessels which may bleed and cause swelling at the back of the eye. They may be recommended for treatment of conditions such as Wet Macular Degeneration and Diabetic Retinopathy.
    • Steroid injections are prescribed to reduce the inflammation in the eye. They may be recommended for conditions causing macular oedema including macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, central retinal vein occlusion.
  • Retinal Laser
    • Retinal laser is commonly used to treat retinal tears and problems caused as a result of diabetes. Retinal tears require an urgent treatment to prevent further enlargement and risk of permanent vision loss. Laser creates a seal around the tear and prevents further progression.
      In case of diabetic retinopathy, laser may be used to stop the leakage from the small blood vessels and to stop new blood vessels from forming. The treatment aims to stabilise the condition and prevent or slow down further vision loss

A vitrectomy may be indicated to treat conditions such as epiretinal membrane, large and bothersom floaters, vitreous haemorrhage, retinal detachment, macular hole, complications during cataract surgery, severe injuries…
