Retina & Uvea Services
Retina is the light-sensitive innermost layer of the eye found at the back of the eye. It is on this layer that falling light creates changes, which are transmitted to the brain to create the image.
At Varun Eye Care, we offer the utmost technology and unparalleled expertise in retinal diagnosis and treatment for all types of medical and surgical vitreo-retinal diseases. A number of diseases may affect retina:
- Diabetic Retinopathy
- ARMD (Age-related macular degeneration)
- Retinal Vascular Occlusion
- Retinal Detachment
- Posterior Segment complications of Cataract Surgery (Nucleus Drop, IOL Drop, Endophthalmitis)
- Vitreous Hemorrhage
- Macular Pucker (Epiretinal Membrane-ERM)
- Cystoid Macular Edema (CME)
- Retinal Degenerations and Dystrophies
Uvea is the pigmented middle of the three concentric layers that make up an eye. It includes the iris, ciliary body and choroid. Many diseases may affect the uvea including:
- Sympathetic ophthalmia
- Uveal melanoma.
At Varun Eye Care, we investigate the patient’s uveal problems in depth and treat them accordingly. Uveitis or Ocular Inflammation is a condition in which the middle layer of the eye gets inflamed. Uveitis can also lead to inflammation in the adjacent areas, like the retina and vitreous. The basic cause for uveitis is not undetermined in most incidents; which can be due to some systemic diseases. Treatment is aimed to treat the cause, decrease the inflammation and reduce complications. Uveitis may be a recurrent disease and the treatment may go on for a long time.
