SPECIALTIES

Vitreo Retinal

The vitreoretinal department treats conditions which involve the vitreous body and retina. The vitreous is a clear gel that fills the space between the front and back of the eye and gives the eye its shape. The retina is a light-sensitive area that converts light into an electrical signal for the visual cortex of the brain. We are dedicated to providing excellent diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions of the vitreous body and retina.

At Abate AS Al Salama, our vitreoretinal specialists treat a wide variety of eye conditions affecting the vitreous body and retina including age-related macular degeneration, flashes and floaters, diabetic retinopathy, vascular occlusions, retinal tears, retinal detachment, retinal pigmentosa, cancers of the eye and other hereditary retinal diseases.

Symptoms

A vitreoretinal disease may occur due to diabetes and other health problems. Ageing is also one of the primary risk factors for vitreoretinal diseases. Symptoms related to the vitreoretinal disease include night blindness, floaters in the visual field, dimming vision, severe eye pain, sudden vision loss and extreme light sensitivity. If you happen to notice any of these symptoms, then you should consult a retinal specialist as quickly as possible. Retinal conditions are also detected during routine eye exams even before the symptoms become apparent, so routine checkup is the best possible way to fight the disease at the earliest.
