Retina, Macular and Vitreous

The latest surgical techniques now provide successful outcomes in over 90% of patients with retinal problems such as retinal detachments, epiretinal membranes, macular holes and vitreous floaters. Although more complex and challenging than cataract surgery, most patients still have day case procedures under local anaesthetic with no sutures due to the small, self sealing incisions used.

There has also been great progress in the management of macular leakage from wet age related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and retinal vein occlusion. All of these conditions can now be routinely treated with intravitreal injections of antigrowth factor medicines such as Eylea (Aflibercept) or Lucentis (Ranibizumab). Regular injection treatment stabilises or significantly improves vision in the vast majority of patients.

Please see links below for additional patient information on each condition.
