Vitrectomy surgery is a procedure used for the treatment of retinal detachment, retinal tears, macular holes, vitreomacular traction, and removal of epiretinal membranes.

Epiretinal Membrane Peel

An epiretinal membrane peel is an advanced procedure used to remove scar tissue over the macula in cases of epiretinal membrane, macular holes and retinal detachment.

Scleral Buckling Surgery

Scleral buckling surgery is an effective procedure used for repairing tears, holes, or breaks caused by retinal detachment.

Pneumatic Retinopexy

Pneumatic retinopexy is a procedure used for repositioning and repairing the retina in cases of retinal detachment and retinal tears.

Avastin and Lucentis Injections

Avastin and Lucentis are anti-VEGF medications used for preventing the growth of abnormal blood vessels in cases of wet age-related macular degeneration, macular edema, branch retinal vein occlusion, central retinal vein occlusion, and diabetic retinopathy.

Eylea Injections

Eylea is an anti-VEGF medication used for preventing the growth of abnormal blood vessels in cases of wet age-related macular degeneration.

Jetrea Injections

Jetrea is a drug used for the treatment of vitreomacular traction.

Periocular and Intravitreal Steroid Injections
