Retina is a layer of tissue in the back of your eye. It senses light & sends images to the brain. The most vital part in retinal tissue is the macula. Retinal disorders mainly affect this tissue & in turn deteriorate your vision.

The Sight Avenue is one of the best retina hospitals in Delhi with highly trained retina specialists. Contact us to know more about retina and its treatment options.

TYPES OF RETINAL PROBLEMS

RETINAL TEARS

It is the discontinuity of the retina. It occurs due to pull over retina created by shrinkage of vitreous gel in the posterior part of the eye. Main causes are aging, pathological (very high) myopia, trauma, diabetic retinopathy etc. Usually the patient presents with floaters & flashes. The Sight Avenue is a trusted and reputed retina care center in Delhi with the best retina eye doctors. Contact us to start your treatment.

RETINAL DETACHMENT

It is defined by the presence of fluid under the retina. It usually occurs when fluid passes through a retinal tear, causing the retina to lift away from the underlying layer. The main symptoms are loss/blurring of vision, curtain like shadow over visual field & loss of field of vision. Retinal detachment surgery cost in Delhi is quite affordable now and available easily at The Sight Avenue.

DIABETIC RETINOPATHY

If you have diabetes, the tiny blood vessels in the back of your eye can deteriorate & leak fluid into & under the retina. In the early stage it may remain asymptomatic. Later, it causes the retina to swell which may blur or distort your vision. It can, in advanced stages, cause retinal detachment. You can also develop abnormal blood vessels that break & bleed. The main symptom is floaters in early stages followed by sudden loss of vision.

EPIRETINAL MEMBRANE

It is a delicate tissue like membrane lying on top of the retina. This membrane pulls up on the retina which distorts your vision. It can be due to aging, inflammatory disorder, retinal tear etc.

MACULAR HOLE

It is a small defect in the centre of the retina (macula). It may develop from abnormal traction between retina & vitreous. Main causes are idiopathic (unknown), aging, long standing macular edema, injury to eye etc. Usually, you present with gradual loss of vision.

AGE RELATED MACULAR DEGENERATION (ARMD)

In this disease, the centre of your retina begins to deteriorate which causes blurred central vision or blind spots in the centre of the visual field. Main cause is increasing age.

RETINITIS PIGMENTOSA

It is a genetic progressive degenerative disease that initially affects the peripheral retina followed by central vision. Night blindness is the main complaint. It may be associated with other systemic disorders in both children and adults.

RETINOPATHY OF PREMATURITY

This potentially blinding disease is exclusively seen in premature babies with low birth weights. Screening within 30 days of birth is the best modality to avoid blindness.

UVEITIS

This condition causes swelling & inflammation in the middle layer of the eye called Uvea. The cause is often unknown. It is sometimes associated with autoimmune disorders or viral/bacterial infection. Common symptoms are-floaters, loss of vision, severe redness in eye, pain & light sensitivity. In advanced stages- Retinal detachment or epiretinal membrane can be found.

SYMPTOMS OF RETINAL DISORDERS?

RETINAL TEARS

Retinal disorders are associated with vision loss and quality of vision. Depending on the type of the disorder, symptoms can be gradual or sudden. Ageing is one of the most common causes. Consider regular eye check ups for timely diagnosis.

  • Floaters accompanied by eye flashes
  • Sudden onset of blurred vision

FAQ

Although retinal diseases vary greatly, the majority of them cause visible symptoms. Any part of your retina, a thin tissue layer on the inside back wall of your eye, can be affected by retinal diseases. Symptoms of retina problems such as floating specks, blurred/distorted vision, defects in the side vision and lost vision.

This vital tissue is affected by retinal disorders. They can impair your vision, and some are severe enough to result in blindness. Retinal detachment, diabetic eye disease, macular degeneration and retinoblastoma can all cause blindness if left untreated.

The risk factors involved with retinal disorders include the following:

  • Aging
  • Smoking
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes & other diseases
  • Eye trauma
  • Family history of retinal diseases

As you get older, your chances of developing retinal detachment increase. You are also more vulnerable if you have or have had a history of eye injury, previous tears or detachments in retina or intraocular surgery, familial history of retinal detachment, significant myopia and retina thinning.

The recommended post-op precautions — and how long it takes to get back on feet — can all be influenced by a patient's health condition, type of surgery, detachment severity, and detachment location. For a few days after the surgery, one may experience eye pain and blurred vision. For several weeks, your eye may be swollen, red, or tender.
