The Vitreoretina service deals with the management of diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachment, ARMD, infections, trauma & various other retinal disorders. Various retinal disorders occur secondary to various systemic illnesses like diabetes, hypertension, and intake of various drugs. Regular retina examination is necessary in those at risk. Sharp Sight has well trained team of retinal surgeons with latest diagnostic tools like FFA, ultrasound B Scan, OCT for best results.
An exclusive retinal examination involves dilation of your pupils, examination by the specialist and diagnostic testing if required. It may take about three hours for the complete examination. Dilation enlarges your pupils to allow the doctor a better view inside your eye. It is important to know that your vision will be blurred and you will be sensitive to light (photophobic) for several hours following this. Many of the procedures (treatments) that may be recommended to treat your condition can be performed by the doctor in the outpatient as well. We also have a well-equipped operation theatre for vitreoretinal surgery.
Some of the common causes and risk factors of Retinal Detachment to watch out for are:
A very common type of Retinal Detachment is caused due to a tear/hole or any kind of opening in the retina. Some of the causes for this type of Retinal Detachment includes a condition called posterior vitreous detachment, trauma or family history of Retinal Detachment, high myopia.
Fractional Detachment, another common type of Retinal Detachment is commonly seen in people who have diabetes. However, this may also result from retinal surgery performed in the recent past.
The first step to confirm if you have Retinal Detachment is to conduct a comprehensive eye examination along with a detailed retinal evaluation, during which drops are put into both your eyes so as to enlarge your pupils. This helps the ophthalmologist to examine the back of the eye clearly. The effect of these drops usually wear off after a few hours, but your vision will be blurred temporarily preventing you from reading and driving.
If you are diagnosed with a Retinal Detachment, you will be advised to have a Retinal Detachment Surgery as soon as possible to reattach the retina because a delayed surgery reduces the chances of good recovery of vision. A few diagnostic tests will be performed to check the retina and pupil.

Diabetes and eye diseases go hand in hand. As a matter of fact, one of the major concerns of a diabetic patient is that they might end up losing their eyesight if their sugar levels are not kept under control. A question that keeps haunting them like a nightmare is: How can diabetes, a disease of the pancreas, have such a dire effect on your vision?
This can be simply explained by the occurrence of diabetes in our bloodstream. When we eat food, it gives us glucose which when broken by the natural insulin of our body releases small cells of energy. In a diabetic patient, this natural insulin mechanism fails and thus causes an elevation in the levels of sugar in our body.
You may have heard that diabetes is a root cause of various eye ailments and it even cause complete blindness. Unfortunately, it’s not a myth! In fact, diabetes or high blood sugar level can cause a number of eye problems; a few of which are sight-threatening and calls for medical emergency. Diabetes may cause frequent changes in vision, blurred and double vision, development of cataract, tears and holes in the retina, etc. Another severe eye complication that is caused due to diabetes is ‘Glaucoma’ or ‘kala motia’. If not diagnosed or treated on time, Glaucoma may cause irreversible loss of vision at a later stage.
