    The retina is like the film in a camera. It is the seeing tissue of the eye. When the focused light hits the retina, a picture is created and sent to the brain through the optic nerve (the nerve of the eye), thus giving us vision.
    Conditions like Diabetes, age related Macular Degeneration and Macular holes can damage retina.
    Rushabh Eye Hospital is equipped with the most advanced equipments to diagnose and treat retinal diseases.

    Two common fallacies about eye check-ups are that if you can see fine, you don't need an examination by an ophthalmologist and that vision screenings are just eye examinations by a different name.

Keratoconus  
Cornea is the clear outer surface of the eye that permits light to enter the eye & focus on the retina. It consists of finely arranged layers (lamellae) of connective tissue called collagen that make up to 90% of its substance.
Keratoconus is a bilateral progressive disorder of unknown cause that typically starts during adolescence. The chemical bonds (cross links) in between these layers of corneal tissue get weaker in keratoconus leading to progressive thinning and stretching of the cornea. Normal pressure within the eye causes the cornea to bulge forward into an irregular cone shape.
Treatment
In early stages of keratoconus, contact lenses can be tried. But in progressive cases, corneal collagen cross-linking is the treatment of choice.
Corneal Collagen Crosslinking with Riboflavin (C3-R)
This is a non surgical, non invasive treatment, based on collagen cross linking with Ultraviolet A (UVA, 365nm) and riboflavin (Vitamin B 2), a photosensitizing agent. This changes the intrinsic biomechanical properties of the cornea, increasing its mechanical strength. This increase in corneal strength has shown to arrest the progression of keratoconus.
The treatment is performed in operation theatre under complete sterile conditions. Usually one eye is treated in one sitting. The treatment is performed using anesthetic eye drops. The surface of the eye (cornea) is treated with application of Riboflavin eye drops for 30 minutes. The eye is then exposed to UVA light for 30 minutes. Hence, the treatment takes about an hour per eye. After the treatment, antibiotic eye drops are applied; a bandage contact lens may be applied, which will be removed during the follow up within the next 3-4 days..
However oneto understand that Collagen cross-linking treatment is not a cure for keratoconus, rather, it aims to arrest the progression of the condition.
 
After cross linking, it is mandatory for the patient to wear glasses or contact lenses to improve the vision.
In certain cases an additional procedure called Intacs or intracorneal ring segments can be performed. This involves insertion of one or two, thin cresentic rings of an inert material into the cornea which help flatten it, thus giving an additional support to the already thin and bulging cornea. The intracorneal channels can be created using a complete bladeless, non-manual technique with the state of the art Laser called IntraLase at Rushabh Eye Hospital.
Insertion of Intacs is usually combined with the cross linking procedure on the same day. By changing the curvature of the cornea, this procedure may also help reduce dependency on glasses, however may not completely eliminate the chances of spectacles/contact lenses post procedure.
 
Intra Stromal Ring
The treatment for advanced cases of Keratoconus would be a corneal transplant surgery - which can be either full thickness or a lamellar surgery (which incvolves removing only the diseased layers keeping the innermost layer untouched).
