Retina Sugery

At the back of the eye is a layer called the retina.

This is the layer that captures the images seen into electrical signals that are then sent to the brain. The rest of the eye is a focusing mechanism. Myriad of medical conditions affect the retina. In other instances, the retina can develop a tear which may allow fluid to accumulate in the underside of the retina.

These results in peeling of the retina from the back surface of the eye, a condition called Retinal Detachment and which results in profound loss of vision and can lead to Permanent blindness. Treatment is surgery and is available at UHEAL or any other eye specialist near you.   

You should visit an Eye Specialist once per year for routine checkup.For more information Contact Upper Hill Eye & Laser Centre (UHEAL) Nairobi Kenya or any other eye specialist near you.
