Surgical retina refers to a branch of ophthalmology that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of retinal disorders that require surgical intervention. The retina is the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye that converts visual information into nerve signals that are transmitted to the brain. Surgery is often required to treat retinal conditions that cannot be resolved using non-surgical treatments, such as medication or laser therapy.
It may take several days to weeks for the eye to fully heal. Patients may be required to attend follow-up appointments with their ophthalmologist to monitor.
If you are experiencing any symptoms related to your vision, please contact us to make an appointment with one of the sub-specialised surgical retina specialists to discuss the best treatment options for you.
