Diabetic Retinopathy : Laser Treatment for Getting Better Vision

Diabetic Retinopathy is a condition occurs in diabetic patients. A serious sight – threatening complication is developed by diabetic retinopathy. Diabetes causes progressive damages in the retina, which is a light-sensitive lining at the back end of the eye.Diabetic retinopathy is caused by excessive sugar in the blood stream which not only affects the eyes also most of the organs of the body. Over a period of time, blood vessels of the retina are damaged by the diabetic condition. When the tiny blood vessels start to leak blood and other fluids it indicates the occurrence of diabetic retinopathy.

Diabetic Retinopathy Causes:

Swelling in the retinal tissue, blurred vision  affects both the eyes. A patient who has diabetic for many years, she/he has more chances of developing retinopathy. When this condition is left untreated, it will lead to permanent blindness. Early stages of diabetic retinopathy do not significantly show any symptoms. It has been insisted that the diabetic patients should undergo comprehensive dilated eye examination at least once a year. Early detection and treatment might prevent the vision loss.

The two different types of Diabetic retinopathy are

Non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy (NPDR) – Early stage of the disease, the symptoms will be very mild. In NPDR retina blood vessels are weakened, blood vessels bulge and may leak fluid into the retina. This may lead to macular swelling. Proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) – This is the most advanced stage of Diabetic retinopathy. Oxygen circulation is deprived in the retina. As a result, new fragile blood vessels begin to grow in the retina and into the vitreous. The new blood vessels may start leaking into the vitreous thus makes the vision cloudy.

In the advanced stages, Focal laser treatment / Photocoagulation either to slow down or stop the fluid or blood leakage into the eye, Scatter Laser Treatment / Pan-retinal Photocoagulation to shrink the abnormal blood vessels, Vitrectomy, to remove blood from the vitreous and scar tissues in the eyes are performed.

Glaucoma Treatment in Mumbai

Glaucoma is an eye disease which will cause blindness. Around 2% of people in this world are suffering from this disorder.
Glaucoma is a disease that damages your eye’s optic nerve. It usually happens when fluid builds up in the front part of the eye. The extra fluid formed will increase the pressure of the eye and damage the optic nerve. When glaucoma develops, it doesn’t show any early symptoms. The diseases progress slowly and steal our vision very gradually.

Glaucoma usually occurs when pressure in our eye increases. The pressure increases because the eye fluid called aqueous humor isn’t circulating normally in the front part of the eye. Normally this fluid flows out through a mesh like channel. If this channel becomes blocked, fluids build up that cause glaucoma. It can be inherited that means it is passed from parents to children. Glaucoma usually occurs in both eyes, but it may involve each eye to a different extent.

  • Appearance of coloured rings around light
  • Pain and redness in eyes
  • Gradual darkness at outer edge of vision
  • Heaviness or headache

  • Open Angle Glaucoma - it occurs when the trabecular meshwork of the eye gradually becomes less efficient at draining fluid
  • Normal Tension Glaucoma - in this eye pressure is consistently below 21 mmHg, but optic nerve damage and loss of vision still occur
  • Closed Angle Glaucoma -  it happens when someone’s iris is very close to the drainage angle in their eye. The iris can end up blocking the drainage angle. The blocking of drainage angle will increase the eye pressure quickly
  • Congenital Glaucoma -  it is a rare type of glaucoma that develops in infants and young children and can be inherited.
  • Secondary Glaucoma - that results from another eye condition or diseases. For example, someone who had an eye injury, or had a tumor may develop secondary glaucoma.
  • Glaucoma Suspect -  people having normal eye pressure but their optic nerve or visual field looks suspicious for glaucoma

Glaucoma is discovered during the routine eye checkup. 
Different tests used to monitor the progression of glaucoma includes :

  • Tonometry : measure intraocular pressure
  • Gonioscopy : view the optic nerve changes
  • Pachymetry : to check the corneal thickness
  • Perimetry / Visual Field Test : to map the field of vision of each eye
  • OCT(Optical Coherence Tomography ) : to calculate the retinal nerve fibre layer thickness and loss in early stage of glaucoma

The treatment options that we provides are:

  • Medication : This includes eye drops have to be used as advised by the doctor. This rather decrease the formation of eye fluid.
  • Surgery :  It is the last option when eye drops can no longer control the intraocular pressure

Krishna Eye Centre will provide a complete workup package for Glaucoma Treatment in Mumbai. We provide highly sophisticated treatment procedures to meet the patient’s expectations. Our mission is to provide high standard eye care treatments at affordable cost.

Cataract Surgery in Mumbai

Cataract is an eye condition which involves clouding of the lens inside the eye. It results in blurred vision. Cataract affects either one eye or both the eyes. Aging is one of the main factors causing cataract.

Causes of Cataract
There are different types of cataracts: all are due to the changes in the chemical composition of the lens.

The possible causes of these changes include:
  • Aging
  • Eye injuries
  • Eye and systemic diseases (such as diabetes),
  • Congenital or hereditary defects
But there are many other reasons which also include changes in lifestyle: it is advisable, to follow a healthy diet and practicing regular physical activity.

Symptoms of Cataract
  • Blurred or double vision
  • Defective color of vision
  • Frequent changes in Eyeglass prescription
Treatment for Cataract

During the initial stage, when the lens is affected by cataract, vision appears to be slightly blurred. A simple alteration in the eyeglass prescription may be sufficient to improve the view for a certain period of time.

Once the cataract reaches its advanced stage, vision gets blurred and it is difficult to carry out normal daily activities. At this stage, surgical removal of the cataract will be advised by the doctor. It involves replacement of the natural cataractous lens with an artificial one.

Krishna Eye Centre provides Cataract Surgery in Mumbai at an affordable cost. We posses a panel of experts for performing various Eye Surgeries.For more details
