Floaters and Flashes
Degeneration of the Vitreous humour (fluid between the lens and the retina) leads to posterior vitreous detachment causing floaters and flashes in eye vision. It may cause retina tear resulting retina detachment and vision loss if untreated. Our centre provides dilated retina check and laser treatment.
Age Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)
AMD is a serious condition affecting the central vision in individuals over the age of 60 years. It is chronic and degenerative disease and affects the macula in particular. Hence, central vision, sharpness, contract and colour differentiation is all affected at once. It is gradual and progressive if not detected early and treated. AMD is divided into 2 types – DRY and WET type. Yearly eye check in individuals who above the age of 50 years is crucial. Risk factors involve – Advancing age, family history of AMD, gender (more common in women) and race.
