A variety of medications can be injected inside the eye to allow for a more direct therapeutic interaction with the retina. The choice of medication depends on the extent and form of pathology identified.
Similarly, medications can be injected in the periocular region – this therapeutic is useful in uveitis.
Removal of fluid from the anterior or posterior chambers of the eye can be performed in the office, both to lower intraocular pressure and to permit laboratory analysis of the fluid.
This laser device can be utilized to open membranes of the anterior and posterior chambers as well as in the vitreous cavity. It is a painless technique which can improve vision in many cases.
The YAG laser can be used to develop a small opening in the iris to permit a balance of fluids in front of and behind the iris, such as may be required in cases of narrow-angle Glaucoma.
This can be performed using either a contact lens fitted on the front of the eye or with a non-touch technique using the binocular indirect ophthalmoscope. Laser energy can be applied to treat a variety of retinal conditions including Macular Edema, Retinal Tears, Detachments, and Proliferative Retinal Disease.
