About Retina

What is the Retina?

The retina is the light-sensitive layer of tissue at the back of your eyeball.
When you look at something, your eye’s lens helps focus the pictures onto the retina. Then, the retina turns these pictures into signals and sends them to your brain.
Diseases that affect the retina are called retinal diseases. At Vasan, we employ advanced techniques to diagnose such diseases.

When / Why do I need it

When do I need Retinal Services?

Retinal services are needed when the retina in your eye is damaged, or affected. Some common retinal issues are:

  • Retinal Detachment:
    When your retina pulls away from its support system, it’s called retinal detachment. It’s serious because, without prompt treatment, you risk losing your vision permanently.
  • Diabetic Retinopathy:
    High blood sugar affects the blood vessels in your retina, leading to vision loss in diabetic patients. If you are a diabetic, consult our experts to keep your eyes in check.
  • Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD):
    AMD causes vision blurriness or distortion. Our advanced treatments are designed to combat AMD and restore clear vision.
  • Retinal Vascular Diseases:
    Blocked blood vessels in your retina cause conditions like retinal vein occlusion and arterial occlusion, which can lead to severe vision loss. But your sight is safe in our hands, our specialists are skilled in diagnosing and managing these diseases.

How our experts treat it

Anti-VEGF Agents

Overproduction of a protein called VEGF can cause abnormal blood vessels to grow in your eye and harm your vision. Anti-VEGF medicine blocks VEGF, slowing the growth of these blood vessels.

Intravitreal Implants

Intravitreal implants are tiny devices injected into the back of your eye to help with retinal diseases. This procedure is used to treat various retinal conditions, including age-related macular degeneration (AMD), diabetic retinopathy, retinal vein occlusion, and other retinal inflammatory diseases.

Scleral Buckling

Scleral buckle surgery is a procedure used to reattach a detached retina. During the surgery, the sclera, the white outer layer of the eye, is gently buckled or folded to bring it closer to the detached retina, aiding in its reattachment. This procedure is a risk-free option for cataract patients and has a quicker recovery time.


Factors like age, family history of retinal diseases, diabetes, high blood pressure, high myopia, past eye surgery or injury, and certain health conditions or medications can contribute to the risk.

Symptoms like sudden or gradual vision loss, blurred or distorted vision, seeing floaters (spots or specks), flashes of light, and changes in side or central vision can indicate retinal issues.

Unfortunately, once retina cells are damaged, they can’t regenerate or grow back. However, we can help you with repairing a damaged retina, preventing further vision loss and stabilising your eyesight.
