Eye Conditions Treated
A small, circular gap opens up at the centre of the retina. Causes blurred vision and distorted vision, and patches of missing vision at the centre.
You must be screened for diabetic retinopathy, as you may not notice changes to your vision. Diabetes damages small blood vessels of the retina, leading to bleeding in the retina and fluid leakage at macula.
The retina is the light sensitive film at the back of the eye and retinal detachment is an emer gency wher e the retina peels away to cause a shadow or loss of vision.
Floaters are shapes that people can see drifting across their vision. Float er s are small bits of debris floating in the vitreous jelly inside the eye.
The vitreous gel shrinks and pulls away from the macula, but the vitreous remains partially stuck and pulls on the macula surface to cause mechanical traction
Mahi Muqit perfor ms routine and complex cataract surgery for all types of cataract and vitreoretinal patients, and has expertise in lens implant exchange surgery.
Scar tissues for ms over the Macula, it contracts, crumples, and squashes the Macula resulting in distor ted and/ or blurred vision.
Mahi Muqit performs a wide range of surgical procedures, and offers a comprehensive vitreoretinal surgery service.
