Vitreo Retina

What does the retinal detachment mean?

The retina is the light-sensitive layer of tissue that lines the inside of the eye and sends visual messages through the optic nerve to the brain. When the retina detaches, it is lifted or pulled from its normal position. If not promptly treated, retinal detachment can cause permanent vision loss

What does retinal hole mean?

These are small circular defects in the retina

What does retinal tear mean?

This is due to pulling of retinal flap because of vitreous shrink


Floaters which are little “cobwebs” or specks that float about in your field of vision
Light flashes in the eye
Sudden blurry vision
An area of dark vision, like a curtain or a veil coming from above or below or from the sides.

We offer following therapies: top retina specialist in pune

Laser Therapy:

Laser is a beam of light that is converted to heat when it hits the retina. This welds the retina to the underlying choroid.

Cryo Therapy:

Cryotherapy refers to a cold probe that freezes the tissue around the tear causing the retina and choroid to stick together.

Surgical Therapy (What is Vitrectomy):

Scleral Buckling
Vitrectomy for retinal detachments, epiretinal membrane, macular hole,vitreomacular traction, vitreous hemorrhage, parasitic cysts, dislocated nucleus, dislocated intra ocular lens
Vitrectomy for diabetic retinal detachment
Scleral fixated IOLs
Surgery for trauma-related conditions
Subretinal surgery
Surgery for intra ocular infections



1. Green Laser Photocoagulator

Diabetic retinopathy  does not usually impair sight until the development of long-term complications, including proliferative retinopathy, a condition in which abnormal new blood vessels grow, and may rupture and bleed inside the eye. When this advanced stage of retinopathy occurs, Pan-retinal photocoagulation is usually recommended.

During this procedure, the laser is used to destroy all of the dead areas of retina where blood vessels have been closed. When these areas are treated with the laser, the retina stops manufacturing new blood vessels, and those that are already present tend to decrease or disappear.  As these abnomal vessels disappear, the risk of vitreous hemorrhage and retinal detachment is reduced.

The goal of pan-retinal photocoagulation is to prevent the development of new vessels over the retina and elsewhere, not to regain lost vision

2. Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging test that uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of your retina, the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye.

With OCT, each of the retina’s distinctive layers can be seen, allowing your ophthalmologist to map and measure their thickness. These measurements help with diagnosis and provide treatment guidance for glaucoma and retinal diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration and diabetic eye disease.


3. Fundus Camera

  • Fundus Photography: Color photographs of the back of the eye
  • Fluorescein Angiography (FFA) -Spectralis HRA system: A diagnostic procedure that photographs the blood circulation of the retina. This involves injection of a dye called fluorescein into a vein in the arm or hand.

Fluorescein angiography is a clinical test to look at blood circulation in the retina at the back of the eye. It is used to diagnose retinal conditions caused by diabetes, age-related macular degeneration, and other retina abnormalities. The test can also help follow the course of a disease and monitor its treatment

4. B – Scan

It is commonly used to see inside the eye when media is  hazy due to cataract or any corneal opacity is there.
