Retina & Uveitis

About Retina & Uveitis

The retina is a vital component of the eye that plays a crucial role in our vision. As a thin layer of tissue near the optic nerve at the back of the eye, the retina acts as a powerful sensory receptor. Its role is to convert the light focused on it by the eye's lens into electrical signals, then transmitted to the brain. The retina allows us to perceive colours, differentiate between light intensities, and perform essential daily tasks such as reading and driving. The retina's photoreceptor cells and optic nerve communicate visual information to the brain. However, when the retina is damaged, it can lead to vision loss and even blindness. Therefore, addressing retinal conditions to protect and preserve your eyesight quickly is crucial.

Paediatrics & Squint

About Paediatrics & Squint

Maintaining your child's overall health requires regular visits to a paediatric ophthalmologist. While immunizations, routine screenings for hearing, weight, and growth charts are typically top of mind for most parents, it's important not to overlook the significance of your child's visual health.

About Cornea

The cornea, known as the clear window at the front of the eye, plays a vital role in vision. It provides two-thirds of the eye's focusing power and is crucial for maintaining a clear and sharp image. However, the cornea can be affected by various conditions, including inflammatory diseases, infections, and shape disorders.

Laser & Refractive Surgery

About Laser & Refractive Surgery

Your eye functions similarly to a high-quality camera. The cornea is the transparent surface at the front of the eye, and the lens works together to direct light onto the retina, which is located at the back of the eye, resembling a camera's film. However, specific conditions can interfere with the accurate focusing of light, and these are broadly classified as refractive errors. For individuals experiencing these conditions, various vision correction solutions can effectively treat these conditions and improve one's eyesight.

About Glaucoma

Glaucoma often deemed the "silent thief of sight,” is a group of eye conditions in which elevated eye pressure (intraocular pressure) gradually damages the optic nerve, a vital link that transmits visual information from the eye to the brain. The eye produces a nourishing fluid called aqueous humour. This fluid circulates around the eye’s tissues and drains through outflow channels. ‘Normal’ Eye pressure is when the amount of fluid produced is balanced by the amount of fluid draining away. If the fluid in the eyes is not ‘balanced, the pressure inside the eye rises, which can lead to glaucoma.

About Cataract

A cataract is a condition where the eye’s natural lens becomes cloudy, hindering the transmission of light rays to the retina, leading to blurred, hazy vision or, in severe instances, loss of sight. Cataracts can make everyday activities like reading, driving, or seeing faces dull or less colourful.

Genetic Eye Disease

About Genetic Eye Disease

Genetic eye diseases arise from mutations that compromise the structure and functionality of the eyes. A genetic eye specialist is essential for diagnosing and managing these conditions, which often lead to significant vision impairment. Stargardt Disease and Retinitis Pigmentosa are notably prominent among the wide range of diseases they address..The primary risk factors for these genetic eye diseases are centred on hereditary influence. Individuals with a family history of such conditions face a significantly heightened risk of developing them. It is of utmost importance for individuals, particularly those with a family history of these diseases, to regularly attend eye examinations.

About Oculoplastics

Oculoplastics (Cosmetic Eye Surgery) is a specialised area of ophthalmology that deals with the management and surgical treatment of conditions affecting the eyelids, tear ducts, and orbit (bony cavity that surrounds the eye). Oculoplastics merges the precision of eye care with the artistry of plastic surgery, focusing on restoring function, enhancing appearance, and improving the quality of life. Oculoplastics encompasses a range of surgeries designed to improve the eye’s function, appearance, and surrounding structures, from eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) and lacrimal (tear duct) abnormalities to severe eye traumas.

Ocular Oncology

About Ocular Oncology

Tumours inside and on the surface of the eye can be benign or malignant, and can also be primary or secondary tumours. Certain lesions in the eye such as naevi or moles are very common, and usually do not require treatment. Other lesions such as melanoma are rare, and require specialised treatment such as surgery or radiotherapy.
