Eye Care

 
Cataract Surgery
Removal of a cataract may be necessary when vision has worsened or if daily activities, reading, driving and hobbies are affected, or if personal safety is at risk. If vision is unaffected or only slightly affected by a cataract, no treatment is necessary.
Eye Drops
 
Pterygium
Drops temporarily help the appearance and the irritation. Lubricants such as Refresh Liquigel or Systane may help.
 
Blepharitis
Blepharitis is usually a chronic condition. In most cases, blepharitis cannot be cured, but regular long-term treatment usually helps to control the symptoms for long periods, before recurring in varying degrees of severity.
Eye Exam
 
Age Related Macular Degeneration
Wet AMD is treated with injections into the eye (intra-vitreal injections). They are both antibodies that blocks the action of the growth factors, wh
 
Epiretinal Membrane
Epiretinal membranes usually require no treatment. In most cases the symptoms described above are mild and they do not affect their daily life. Most epiretinal membranes do not progress. You will generally be reexamined in three to four months to check this.
 
Eye Specialist Consultation
 
Glaucoma
The goal of treatment is to lower the eye pressure to minimise the risk of further damage to the optic nerve, and therefore, your vision. Lowering eye pressure can be accomplished using eye drops, laser, or surgery. Treatment needs to be carried out for life. Glaucoma can be controlled, but there is currently no cure. Glaucoma treatment will not improve your vision.

Laser Eye Surgery

LASIK
 
Laser Cataract Surgery
In traditional cataract surgery micro-incisions are created by a blade, the front of the lens is opened mechanically and the lens divided by an ultrasonic probe. Using the latest laser technology, patients now have the option of choosing a blade-less, computer-controlled laser (LenSx) to perform parts of the cataract surgery.
 
Macular Holes
Macular holes are treated with a procedure known as a vitrectomy. In this procedure the vitreous gel is removed to stop the pulling on the retina and replaced with a bubble containing air and gas. The bubble acts like a bandage and holds the macula as it heals. Surgery is performed under local anesthesia.
 
Branch Retinal Vein Occlusion
A branch retinal vein occlusion is a blockage to one of the veins that drains blood out of the retina.
 
Central Retinal Vein Occlusion
LASER TECHNIQUES: Laser Photocoagulation – where retina ischaemia is prevalent, large areas of retina are treated by laser in a process known as Panretinal Photocoagulation (PRP). The aim is to prevent the abnormal vessels from growing and the resulting vision loss. Laser photocoagulation generally doesn’t improve or reduce the vision. INTRAOCULAR INJECTIONS: this is an anti-VEGF (Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor) drug that is designed to reduce oedema in CRVO allowing stabilisation and some improvements to vision. this treatment is generally only lasts four to six weeks so repeat injections are required. The thought of an injection into the eye may sound daunting but it is relatively painless and quick.
 
Central Serous Retinopathy (CSR)
CSR typically resolves without the need for treatment. No treatment has been shown to improve visual outcomes compared to observation alone. For those who suffer from persistent leakage, laser may be considered. This may be either cold (photodynamic therapy laser) or hot (argon laser). Your ophthalmologist will discuss which is most suited for your eye.
