Understanding Vitreoretinal Diseases

The retina is the lining at the back of the eye. This lining transmits light to the brain via the optic nerve and helps the brain identify what we see. At the center of the retina is the macula, where light focuses to make vision sharp and clear. Between the retina and the lens at the front of the eye, space is filled with vitreous fluid, which is clear and gel-like in consistency. Vitreoretinal diseases are conditions that affect any one of these structures. Because the retina and macula are integral to vision, a disease in this part of the eye can temporarily or permanently diminish vision. Therefore, any symptoms related to vitreoretinal disease need to be evaluated by a retinal specialist as quickly as possible. Some retinal conditions may be detected during routine eye exams before symptoms become apparent. This is advantageous because it allows us the best possible opportunity to slow or stop the disease process.

Symptoms of vitreoretinal disease include

  • – Night blindness.
  • – Floaters in the visual field, especially the sudden onset of spots.
  • – Dimming in central or peripheral vision.
  • – Flashes of light.
  • – Severe eye pain.
  • – Sudden vision loss.
  • – Distortion of printed words when reading.
  • – Distortion in central vision, such as wavy lines.
  • – Extreme light sensitivity.

Treating Vitreoretinal Disease

Vitreoretinal conditions can be severe and may cause vision loss. In many cases, treatment is available to preserve vision and slow the progression of vision deterioration. Treatment methods are developed based on the type of retinal damage and the severity of the condition. In some cases, medication may be administered to support visual function. Sometimes, as in the case of retinal detachment, a minor surgical procedure may be necessary.

What Our Patients Say?

Probir Kr. Ghosh

I lost my vision in my right eye all of a sudden on 8th March 2022 and rushed to Netralayam on 9th March morning. There initial consultation was made with Dr Lav Kochgaway, renowned ophthalmologist who did not take time to refer my case to Dr Sudipta Das. Dr Das examined my eye. It was a retinal detachment. He suggested me for going through retinal surgery. And we (I was accompanied by my best friend & my wife) took no time to give our consent for going through surgery in the evening of same day i.e 9th March 2022. That day we found some thing different with Dr Das. His BEHAVIOUR, his ATTITUDE, his CONFIDENCE, his ELABORATION attracted us a lot. And we did not think even for 2nd opinion. And I want to announce loudly that our decision was 100% correct. His skill on surgery made me a happiest person. Now I have regained my vision as I had it before my retina detachment. That is Dr Sudipta Das. He is not a good Doctor, he is best Doctor. He is very much friendly with his patients. Above all he is a NICE PERSON.

Very friendly and down to earth person. Never hesitate to satisfy patient's queries. Had my ratina laser on 25th Jan 23 at Netralayam Mukundapur. Hopefully it works fine for me. Dr. Sahib has given his personal whatsapp number for future medical conversations. I pray to Almighty Allah that you achieve pinnacle of success in this world. Ameen.
