Retinal Laser Treatment in Dubai

Dr. Vasu Kumar

Retinal laser treatment

Retinal laser treatment is an advanced non-invasive outpatient procedure —designed to address a range of eye conditions. The process involves using focused laser energy to precisely treat and manage retinal disorders.

Patients can expect each sitting to last between 10 to 20 minutes, making it a convenient and time-efficient option for those with busy schedules. The short duration and outpatient nature of the treatment allow individuals to quickly resume their daily activities, making it a valuable solution for those in need of retinal care with retinal laser treatment in Dubai.

Indications of Retinal Laser Treatment

There is a range of retinal diseases for which retina lasers are employed, including:

  • Retinal Breaks and peripheral degenerations like Lattice degeneration and Retinal Hole/tear
  • Diabetic Retinopathy in Proliferative and Macular Edema
  • Retinal Vascular Occlusion
  • Central Serous Chorioretinopathy.
  • Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP)
  • Retinal Vascular Tumors
  • Exudative Retinal Vascular Disorders such as Coat’s disease, Hemangioma, and Macroaneurysm

Retinal Laser Treatment: Mechanism of Action

In retinal laser photocoagulation, laser light rays are directed into the eye, focusing on the retinal surface:

  1. to prevent leakage of protein and fluids
  2. to prevent the growth of abnormal blood vessels.
  3. to seal the retinal breaks
  4. Others

These rays are focused onto multiple small spots on the retina where the abnormal blood vessels are growing. The laser beam heats up those spots, creating a tiny burn in the retina and stopping the growth. 

These controlled burns trigger the body’s immune response, leading to scarring that eventually heals and seals the hole. This scarring process reinforces the retina’s integrity.

Retinal laser treatment for retinal hole

Before understanding our retinal hole laser treatment in Dubai, it’s important to understand the retinal hole, and its symptoms.

What is a retinal hole?

A retinal hole is a kind of tear in the eye’s posterior segment, composed of light-sensitive tissue crucial for vision. The macula is responsible for central and color vision. A retinal hole can affect the ability to distinguish colors and see fine details clearly.

A retinal hole is a condition that demands immediate attention because it may lead to permanent visual impairment resulting in blurred or distorted vision. Hence, it is necessary to diagnose and treat retinal holes promptly.

Do you Know?

Retinal holes are rare. Approximately 8 cases per 100,000 people. Mostly women over the age of 60 are prone. 

Diagnosis

For diagnosis, an experienced eye doctor takes a thorough examination, including dilated eye exams and optical coherence tomography, a non-invasive imaging test that allows for detailed retinal examination.

Dr. Vasu as one of the most reputed ophthalmologists, examines a series of criteria for framing up your retina laser treatment, for example:

Retinal holes, when detected early, can be effectively treated through laser therapy.

During the treatment, a medical laser is directed within the eye, where it creates controlled, small burns around the tear or hole in the retina. These controlled burns trigger the body’s natural immune response, leading to the formation of scar tissue.

Over time, these scars promote the healing process, closing the tear and reinforcing the stability of the retina. 

Retinal hole laser treatment creates healthy new tissue, effectively patching the hole and providing structural support to the retina. This procedure offers an excellent chance for vision preservation.

Post-procedure guidelines

As for post-procedure guidelines, after undergoing retina laser treatment, you can resume your daily life right away. This includes traveling, bathing, and computer work on the same day as the procedure. In essence, aside from refraining from heavy weightlifting for a few days, there are no specific precautions to observe after receiving retina laser treatment in Dubai.

At Dr. Vasu Kumar’s clinic, we offer cutting-edge retinal hole laser treatment in Dubai. Early detection is key, as laser treatment can effectively address this condition by using focused light to repair the damaged area without harming surrounding tissues.
