For a Life Free of Diabetic Eye Complications
Diabetes is a common condition characterized by abnormal blood sugar levels. People suffering from this chronic condition usually have elevated blood sugar levels that need to be consistently controlled by medication.
The eye, and more specifically the retina, is one part of the body that could be severely affected by diabetes. The retina is the very sensitive part of the eye which is responsible for appreciation of light. Without the retina the world would be a very dark place.
Diabetes affects the fine blood vessels in the retina, and with time these vessels stop working properly and the macula (central part of the retina) swells up causing vision to deteriorate.
Patients with diabetic retinopathy usually complain of a very gradual and progressive drop in vision, usually first noticed while reading. With time the patient starts to complain of dark spots affecting his central vision.
Advanced Cataract Surgery
Cataracts are the age related changes that occur in the lens of the eye. The crystalline lens is the normally transparent part of the eye that is located behind the iris and, together with the cornea, is responsible for focusing light in order for one to see the world clearly.
The lens is normally transparent at birth and very gradually starts to lose its transparency with age due to prolonged exposure to sunlight. This loss of transparency is what we call “cataract”.
Symptoms usually start to appear between the age of 50-60 years old and at first the patient complains of light scatter and haloes at night time. As the cataract progresses vision starts to deteriorate.
The only cure for cataract is removal through a minimally invasive surgery called “Phaco”. This breakthrough in cataract removal is a highly sophisticated and highly efficient way of removal of cataract through a 1mm incision. Through this tiny incision we are able to liquify and suck the cataract out. This procedure is performed under topical anaesthesia, without pain and with no sutures, allowing for very rapid and very smooth visual rehabilitation
