Your vision is our priority
Retina Consult specialises in diagnosing and treating diseases of the vitreous, retina and macula.
Retinal surgery is a subspecialist area of Ophthalmology that treats diseases at the back of the eye, involving the vitreous (central gel cavity), retina and macula. Conditions we treat include retinal detachment, macular holes, macular epiretinal membrane, vitreous floaters, posterior vitreous detachment, and vitreous haemorrhage.
Age-related macular degeneration
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a chronic and progressive disease of the macula – a small, highly sensitive area of the retina responsible for detailed, central vision. AMD usually occurs in people over age 50. As it progresses, it can affect your ability to see clearly. While there is no cure for AMD, treatment aims to maintain best vision, for as long as possible.
Diabetic eye disease
Everyone with diabetes is at risk of developing diabetic eye disease. One of the most common forms is diabetic retinopathy (DR), which is caused by damage to the small blood vessels supplying the retina at the back of the eye. Treatment can involve retinal laser, intravitreal injections, and vitreoretinal surgery.
A cataract is an eye condition where the lens of your eye becomes cloudy. This is a normal part of ageing, which can make it difficult to see clearly. Eye surgery for cataracts is a relatively short procedure, involving removal of the cloudy lens and replacing it with a clear, plastic lens specifically calculated for your eye.
Other retinal conditions that may affect your sight include retinal vein occlusion, central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR), inherited retinal dystrophies, and inflammatory eye conditions. Your specific treatment will depend upon the condition you have, and may include eye surgery.
