Protect Your Sight with Expert Retinal Care

Comprehensive Retinal Care at amaEyes

At amaEyes, we pride ourselves on offering thorough retinal care that addresses each patient’s individual needs. Our expert team employs the latest technology and techniques to deliver comprehensive assessments and treatments, ensuring the best possible outcomes.

Personalized Treatment Options

Ensuring the health of your retina begins with understanding its current state. We do a thorough exam, going beyond just surface evaluations.

  • In-depth retinal examination: This involves a comprehensive check of the retina’s structure and function, helping our doctors discern the subtlest changes that might escape a routine check.
  • Optical coherence tomography (OCT) scans: An advanced imaging technique, OCT provides a detailed cross-sectional view of the retina. This allows us to identify and assess the severity of potential issues, guiding the next steps in treatment.

Retinal Injections and Their Benefits

In retinal care, sometimes, early and minimal interventions can lead to profound outcomes.

  • The importance of early intervention: Addressing retinal conditions at the onset can prevent further complications and preserve vision. We emphasize timely care, ensuring the best possible prognosis.
  • How injections help: For conditions like wet macular degeneration, retinal injections play a pivotal role. These injections deliver medication directly to the affected area, halting the progression of the disease and, in some cases, even improving vision.

Surgical Procedures for Retinal Conditions

Surgical intervention becomes necessary for some retinal conditions. At amaEyes, we employ techniques that prioritize your comfort and outcomes.
  • Scleral buckling: This is a surgical method used primarily to treat retinal detachments. A flexible band, the buckle, is placed around the eye, gently pushing the sclera (white of the eye) toward the detached retina, allowing it to reattach.
  • Vitrectomy: Here, the vitreous gel, which fills most of the eye’s interior, is carefully removed to treat various retinal conditions. After the surgery, you may be asked to maintain a specific head position to aid recovery. The recovery period varies, but we’ll guide you through each step, ensuring optimal healing.

Understanding Retinal Conditions

The human eye is a complex structure designed to capture light and transform it into the images we perceive. Central to this process is a thin layer of tissue known as the retina.

What Are Retinal Conditions?

The retina, lining the back of the eye, plays a pivotal role in vision. It contains light-sensitive cells that convert light into electrical signals. These signals are then sent to the brain, producing the images we see.

However, like any intricate mechanism, the retina can experience issues leading to various conditions:

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD)

This is a common retinal disorder that affects the retina’s central portion, known as the macula. As its name suggests, it typically develops with age, leading to central vision loss.

Diabetic retinopathy

This is another prevalent condition arising due to diabetes. High blood sugar levels can damage the tiny blood vessels in the retina, causing vision problems over time.

Retinal detachment

This is a severe condition where the retina becomes separated from its supporting layers. If not treated promptly, it can lead to permanent vision loss.

Recognizing the Signs and Symptoms

Recognizing the signs of a potential retinal condition can be the key to preserving your vision. Here are some symptoms to be aware of:

Vision changes

You may notice blurring or the sudden appearance of floaters—specks drifting across your vision. Flashes of light can also be a sign of retinal issues.

Peripheral vision loss

Often described as a ‘curtain’ descending over your vision, this can signal a retinal detachment or another serious condition.

Distorted vision

If straight lines, like the edge of a door or a window frame, begin appearing wavy or bent, it may indicate macular issues.

Risk Factors You Should Know

Certain factors can increase the likelihood of developing retinal conditions:


As we age, our eyes undergo natural changes, making us more susceptible to conditions like AMD.

Medical conditions

Diseases such as diabetes or high blood pressure can heighten the risk of retinal damage. Regular eye check-ups are essential if you have these conditions.

Family history and genetic predisposition

If retinal conditions run in your family, being proactive about eye health is vital. Some genetic factors can make one more susceptible to these issues.
