We provide professional support in Retinal diseases.
retinal diseases; The retina layer consists of membrane-shaped tissue formed by light-sensing cells in the back of the
eye. Since the retina layer is responsible for transmitting the light and
images that come to our eyes to our brain, if the retina layer is not healthy,
our eyes cannot perform its vision function.
Deformations in our retina tissue caused by various reasons affect the visual function negatively.

Objects floating in the eye
If you notice small floating objects, small or large
spots and threadlike objects appearing all of a sudden, we may suspect that
this is related to retinal diseases.
Seeing floaters in the eye can make the clear jelly-shaped liquid that forms the inner layer of the eye become more fluid and
more liquid. Small clumps cast a shadow on the retinal layer. However,
seeing floaters in the eye may also be the result of retinal tears.
If a tear has occurred in the retina, the
patient should be operated with early intervention. If left untreated, it
causes retinal detachment.
Yellow spot disease; Yellow spot disease, also called age-related macular degeneration, is a serious disease that causes
vision loss in the center of vision. Yellow spot disease is more common
over the age of 55.
Blurred vision, distorted straight lines, and difficulty focusing on fine details can all be symptoms of macular degeneration.
As in any disease, early diagnosis is very important in macular degeneration. Antioxidant food supplements can be
used to prevent the development of the disease and to stop the development of unhealthy
Intraocular injection method can be used in the
treatment of wet type macular degeneration. In the dry type yellow spot
disease type, injection treatment is not applied. Today, it is possible to
treat macular degeneration with surgery.
Diabetic retinopathy is one of the most important causes
of blindness today. It occurs as a result of changes in retinal blood
vessels. Different types of damage occur in diabetic retinopathy. When
the structure of blood vessels deteriorates and small bubbles occur, it causes
bleeding. In diabetic retinopathy, vision loss does not develop at first,
but as the disease progresses, vision weakness occurs. In the treatment,
laser can be applied with local anesthesia.
Retinal detachment is the separation of the retinal
tissue, which is formed by the nerve cells covering the inside of the eyeball,
from the nourishing tissue to which it is adjacent.
It develops suddenly. If retinal detachment is not
treated in a short time, permanent blindness may occur. Ruptured retinal
detachment and tractional retinal detachment are progressive. The
treatment is eye surgery. Visual acuity may be good at the beginning of
the detachment, but this should not mislead the physician and you, the
operation should not be delayed. The treatment of exudative retinal
detachment is medical. Correction of blood factors causing exudation,
corticosteroid-containing drugs and intraocular injections are appropriate.
Night blindness, less commonly known as nyctalopia, is
the inability of the eye to adapt to low light conditions at
night. Although this is not considered an eye disease, it can put the
patient in a difficult situation.
Although night blindness negatively affects a person’s
vision, it does not cause complete vision loss.
Night blindness is dangerous especially when driving in
the evening, as it causes vision problems and reflexly closing the eyes in
