Advanced Retina Care

At Sharat Maxivision, we offer comprehensive eye care solutions, which makes it 'one stop' destination for complete eye care.

The Retina is often affected by many diseases, diabetes being among the most common. Diagnosis plays a key role in the line of treatment for retinal problems. At Sharat Maxivision, we adopt a wide range of techniques to do this.

Our Retina Diagnostic Procedures:

1. Fluorescein Angiography (FFA):

This is an in-depth investigation into the cause of the retinal disease.

Benefits:

a. Provides guidelines for treatment

b. To detect the lesion of retina

c. Confirmation of diagnosis for retinal disorder

2. OCT – Optical Coherence Tomography:

This is a technique for obtaining sub-surface images of translucent or opaque materials at a resolution equivalent to a low-power microscope.

Benefits:

a. Live sub-surface images at near-microscopic resolution

b. No ionising radiation

c. Instant, direct imaging of tissue morphology

3. Argon laser for diabetic retinopathy:

Argon Laser surgery has been used successfully on the eye since 1970. The laser beam is a high energy light that turns to heat when it is focussed on the parts of the retina to be treated. This light energy is precise, controlled and convenient.

Benefits:

a. Effective in the treatment of diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, retinal breaks and detachment, and other retinal abnormalities

b. Used to seal the abnormal blood vessels that have leaked serum into the retina.

4. Fundus Camera or Retinal Camera:

A Fundus camera or retinal camera is a specialised low power microscope with an attached camera designed to photograph the interior surface of the eye, including the retina, optic disc, macula, and posterior pole.

5. Pascal Laser:

The Pascal Laser is a new, innovative tool designed to treat retina conditions like diabetic & retinal holes and tears.

6. Intravitreal avastin injection for ARMD / Diabetic Retinopathy:

Age-related macular degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in people over 50. Caused due to the breakdown of the central portion of the retina called the macula.

Benefits:

a. Very quick procedure (few minutes)

b. Almost painless

c. Patient needs to rest for less than a day.

7. Sutureless Vitrectomy:

Vitrectomy is a surgery to remove some or all of the vitreous humour or the clear gel between the lens and the retina of the eye.

Benefits:

a. Quick recovery

b. Short and fast procedure
