Swayam Eye hospital is equipped with state of art combined Phaco Vitrectomy machine "TURBOVIT" which is a real boon for retinal surgeries. It has a 5000 cut rate for vitrectomy & can do sutureless retinal surgery with 23 G & 25 G.
This enables the surgeon to have an accurate visualization of ocular structures & thus enables high precision cataract & retinal surgeries.
It also has a stereoscopic diagonal inverter & BIOM (Binocular Indirect OphthalmoMicroscopy) for wide angle retinal viewing. It is a non contact visualizing system for retinal surgeries, which enables us to perform non contact vitreous surgeries with wide angle viewing which is a unique advantage.
Swayam Eye hospital is equipped with the state of art OCT machine which has become the gold standard for management of retinal disorders.
This enables three dimensional imaging of the retina & allows detection of disorders up to 5 microns. It has revolutionized decision making in ophthalmology has given us a better understanding of retinal & optic nerve diseases.
It is also useful for supplementing the diagnosis & management of Glaucoma.
Swayam Eye hospital is equipped with fundus photography & fluorescein angiography system which is useful in management & documentation of various retinal & optic nerve disorders.
It enables us to do angiography of the retina which is important for retinal diseases like diabetic retinopathy, hypertensive retinopathy, Eales disease, CSR etc. Angiography is useful in identifying the new blood vessels or ischemia (decreased blood supply) & also to identify the areas of leakage from the blood vessels. This works as a guide for treatment of various retinal diseases.
We are equipped with all the wavelengths of retinal lasers i.e the green & red (532nm & 810nm). We have all the three laser delivery systems namely, laser indirect ophthalmoscopy (LIO), endolaser & slit lamp delivery system for all the lasers.
This enables us to manage patients with any retinal diseases effectively.
The green laser is used for the treatment of diabetic retinopathy, retinal vein occlusions, diode laser retinopexy for retinal tears & holes etc.
The red laser is mainly used as intraoperative laser & also for conditions like ARMD & ocular tumours (Transpupillary Thermotherapy)
Red Diode (810nm)
Iridex Green Diode Laser
Slit Lamp Delivery System
Indirect Ophthalmoscope delivery system
Swayam Eye hospital provides facilities of all kinds of intravitreal injections, which are used for retinal diseases like diabetic retinopathy, Age related macular degeneration & retinal vein occlusions etc.
We also place retinal implant like OZURDEX for various retinal disorders.
Diabetic retinopathy is a disorder of the blood vessels in the retina of patients with diabetes mellitus.
Diabetes is a condition where the body does not produce enough insulin to convert sugar to energy, leading to a build up of sugar in the blood. This leads to a number of problems, including diabetic retinopathy -- which is one of the leading causes of adult blindness globally
Diabetic retinopathy first manifests itself slowly over the years as background retinopathy, which is the early stage of diabetic retinopathy. At this early stage, tiny blood spots or fatty deposits appear on the retina.
Proliferative retinopathy develops from background retinopathy and is responsible for most of the visual loss in diabetics. In this condition, new blood vessels grow on the surface of the retina and optic nerve. These immature blood vessels tend to rupture and bleed into the cavity of the eye. Scar tissue can also form from the ruptured blood vessels and can contract and pull on the retina, causing retinal detachment and vision loss. In some cases, new vessels can grow on the iris and cause a form of glaucoma, which itself can lead to blindness.
Laser treatment is used to seal or remove abnormal leaking blood vessels. Small bursts of the laser energy can seal leaking vessels and form tiny scars inside the eye. The scars reduce new vessel growth and cause existing ones to shrink and close. Laser treatments are usually carried out in an outpatient setting. They do not require special preparation or hospitalisation.
However, laser treatment cannot be used successfully in all patients. Advanced cases with vitreous bleeding into the eye and scar tissue formation require a procedure called vitrectomy together with other surgical procedures. Early detection through eye examination is key to successful treatment.
Retinal detachment occurs when the retina separates from the outer layers of the eye. If not treated early, retinal detachment may lead to partial or complete loss of vision.
Retinal detachment usually occurs after tears develop in the retina. Fluid passes through these openings and separates the retina from the other layers of the eye.
Myopia (short-sightedness) increases the risk of retinal detachment, as it leads to thinning of the retina, and therefore an increased risk of developing holes or tears. Family history may contribute to the risk. Another risk factor is after surgery for cataracts. Retinal detachments can also be caused by other diseases in the eye such as tumours, severe inflammation, or as a complication from diabetes.
Swayam eye hospital and retina centre provides a range of treatments for retinal detachments, including:
Over 90% of all retinal detachments can be reattached by modern surgical techniques. Occasionally, more than one operation may be required.The degree of vision that returns six months after successful surgery will vary.
