Retina and vitreous

Retina

The retina is the most delicate neurologic layer of the eye. It is affected by many conditions such as myopia, diabetes, and hypertension, and its care and monitoring are very important to maintain its health.

This specialty, which establishes the diagnosis and medical and procedural treatment of conditions affecting the vitreous and retina, includes local or total retinal photocoagulation, intravitreal application of medications, retinopexy, and vitrectomy.

The surgical treatment of vitreoretinal disorders aims primarily to reapply the retina (when there is detachment) and maintain its anatomical and functional state, which may not be achieved in some cases, particularly when dealing with advanced cases.

Surgical treatment is directly aimed at reattaching the retina to its place, and for this, it is necessary, in most cases, to remove the lens, even if it is healthy.

Our department is equipped with the necessary resources for diagnosis and treatment to prevent and treat retinal diseases.
