Medical Retina

The retina is the thin layer of light sensitive nerve tissue (actually the front of the brain) at the back of the eye.

The central area of the retina is dedicated to detailed vision (chart vision, reading, fine discrimination) and is known as the macula.

The remainder of the retina provides the wide overview and side vision important in the coordination of the eyes, navigation, night vision and overall awareness of surrounds and motion.

Conditions Affecting Retina Health

Many conditions affect the health of the retina.

We commonly see and manage:

  • Macular disease and degeneration
  • Diabetic retinopathy and macula swelling (oedema)
  • Retinal vessel blockage (retinal artery or vein occlusion)

We have the state-of-the-art scanning equipment (Heidelberg Engineering), retinal lasers and carefully provide treatment including intravitreal injection of medications (up to date with the latest in anti-VEGF treatments available).
