Diagnosis and management of macular and retinal diseases

  • The retina is a very thin layer of tissue covering the inside wall of the eye. It functions like the film in a camera by capturing images and sending it to the brain for interpretation. It is the seeing tissue of the eye. At the center of the retina is found a small area called the macula. The macula is the most seeing part of the retina which is capable of creating sharp and clear images.
  • The retina and macula are affected by a variety of diseases which result in severe loss of vision. These include hereditary retinal diseases (e.g. Retinitis Pigmentosa), degenerative diseases (age-related macular degeneration), various infections (e.g. HIV, toxoplasmosis), retinal detachment and diabetic retinopathy.
