Retina eye conditions

These conditions are retinal degenerative diseases and affect a specific layer of delicate tissue that lines the inside back of the eye. This part of the eye – the retina – is essential for vision.

Age-related Macular Degeneration AMD

Age-Related Macular Degeneration is a degenerative eye disease that can result in reduced central vision, but leaves peripheral or “side” vision in place. It usually affects people over the age of 50 years, and becomes more common with increasing age…  Read More

Macular Hole

A macular hole is a small hole in the center of the eye’s light-sensitive tissue (retina) called the macula. The macula gives us our sharp, central vision which we use for reading, driving and seeing fine detail…   Read More

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy is damage to the retina caused by the complications of diabetes, which can eventually lead to blindness. The condition may not be noticed straight away but over time diabetic retinopathy can get worse and cause vision loss. It usually affects both eyes…  Read More

Branch Retinal Vein Occlusion BRVO

A branch retinal vein occlusion is a blockage to one of the veins that drains blood out of the retina. The blockage leads to a buildup in pressure on the vein, which causes haemorrhaging and fluid leaking out onto the retina. BRVO’s are the second most common retinal vascular disease behind diabetic retinopathy…  Read More

Central Retinal Vein Occlusion, CRVO

A central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO) is a blockage of the main retinal vein that drains blood from the eye.  The blockage leads to a buildup in pressure in the vein, which causes blood and fluid to leak out onto the retina…  Read More

Retinal Detachment

The inside of the eye is filled with a gel like substance which helps maintain its shape, known as the vitreous. The vitreous attaches onto the surface of the retina through millions of fine fibres. As we age the vitreous begins to shrink and slowly pulls away off the retina…  Read More

Floaters and PVD

As we get older, the gel in the middle of eye, known as the vitreous, starts to degenerate and break down; a process known as posterior vitreous detachment or PVD. As this occurs, opacities can form within the gel, which cast a tiny shadow on the back of the eye or retina…  Read More

Central serous retinopathy CSR

Central serous retinopathy (CSR) refers to the pooling of fluid that has leaked under the macula region of the eye. This is the region of the retina controlling central vision and allows you to see fine detail. It usually occurs to males between the ages of 20 to 50 but it can also affect women…  Read More
