Retina and Uvea

We, at Indira Gandhi Eye Hospital and Research Centre, have a fully functional retina department which conducts surgeries and medical management of all retinal diseases in all its branches. We are the major referral centre for all cases of retinal detachment, diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, macular hole surgeries, retinal vein occlusions, uveitis, optic nerve diseases, etc. Our team, compromising highly skilled and well-qualified retinal surgeons trained at the best hospitals of country, provides the best and most affordable management possible for all retinal diseases. Our mission is to treat as many people as possible and to make vitreo-retina services within reach for all

The human eye is comparable to a camera with a lens in front and a film behind (which is called retina). The retina is one of the four important structures of the eye which is responsible for good quality and quantity vision and is placed approximately 2 cm behind the cornea. The light entering the eye reaches the retina and is further relayed via the optic nerve to our brain. Thus severe vision loss can occur in diseases affecting the vitreous, retina and optic nerve.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are the conditions which are likely to affect the retina?

    Retinal diseases may be inherited or acquired disorders. They can affect the young and old and can include Diabetic Retinopathy, Retinal Detachment, Retinal Vascular Occlusions, Age Related Macular Degeneration, Retinitis Pigmentosa, Retinopathy of Prematurity and Retinoblastoma (cancer of the retina), etc.

  • When should I get my retina checked?

    Every myope (wearing minus spectacles) must get the retina checked at least once a year. Similarly all diabetics, hypertensives, people with family history of retinal diseases must get their retina examined at least once a year even if their vision is perfectly normal. All preterm babies must get their retina checked before 1 month of age.

  • How do I know I have a retinal problem?

    Flashes of light, floaters, distortion of images, and curtain like loss of vision may be symptoms of retinal problem. You must contact a vitro retinal surgeon immediately.
