Retinal Laser Surgery – Innovation in Eye care

Tears and detachments in the eye can cause a variety of problems and should not be taken lightly. An early diagnosis and treatment can save you from life-long problems. Retinal Laser Surgery(or photocoagulation) is a fast and effective way to treat a wide array for eye-related diseases.

This technique works on a simple principle. A laser is placed in front of the eye, which is then focused by the ophthalmologist onto the tear. The laser passes through non-retinal tissues of cornea and lens onto the eyewall. This makes small burns around the tear and scars come up to heal the burns. The scars in turn seal the retina to the eye wall and prevent the retina to detach completely. We at iclinix have experienced Doctors who perform this innovative technology without making you feel uneasy.

A breakthrough technology for your eyes

The ten-minute Retinal Laser Surgery procedure at iclinix is simple and does not require any special preparation. You can continue your regular diet and medication as per your doctor’s advice. You would need somebody to accompany you since your pupils dilate and a pair of dark sunglasses after the surgery to protect your eyes from bright light. In the lab, once the pupils are dilated, freezing drops are applied to the exterior of your eye as an anesthetic. You will see bright flashes of light and may feel slight pinprick sensation. You can ask your ophthalmologist to adjust the laser’s power according to your comfort.

This technique has been around and is gaining popularity since the last decade, however there are a few myths associated with it. People think the laser technique is extremely painful and can damage the eyes completely. In reality, the surgery is usually painless. The slight discomfort is due to the flashing of bright light rather than the power of the laser. It is common to have blurred vision just after the surgery and a little irritation in and around the eye. Like any other treatment there may be a few complications or side-effects of the technique. There may be a temporary pain, loss of central vision, retinal bleeding, retinal scar tissue, failure to prevent retinal detachment in the future and a possible need for additional surgery. However, with quality eye care and profound experts as at Iclinx the chances of such complications are next to none.
