Restore the vision of a poor person through retina surgery to restore vision, INR 6000

Retinal diseases constitute one of the major causes of blindness in our country. Some of the retinal conditions requiring surgical intervention are:

? Retinal detachment – This condition leads to sudden visual loss in an otherwise seeing eye. It may occur in myopia, following trauma or maybe age-related.

? Vitreous hemorrhage – This refers to bleeding in the eye which results in sudden vision loss. It may be due to trauma or ocular tuberculosis in younger patients, and due to hypertension or diabetes in older patients.

? Diabetic retinopathy – The effect of diabetes on the retina can lead to irreversible loss of vision if not detected and treated appropriately. It often affects both eyes in a similar manner.

As opposed to cataract, surgical treatment of retinal diseases is more complex, requires specialised equipment and highly trained surgeons. In most cases, early surgery is imperative to avoid permanent loss of sight. The sooner the surgery is performed, the better the visual prognosis. Also, while cataract patients are usually middle aged to elderly, retinal diseases can affect any age group, ranging from children to adults in the economically productive age group, to the elderly.

Unfortunately, many patients are unable to afford this complex, highly specialised retinal surgery, owing to cost constraints. Multiple surgeries are often required in retinal conditions, and patients are unable to bear the cost of the procedures. This leaves them helpless and on the road to visual permanent blindness.

With a helping hand at the correct time, many of these eyes can be salvaged with gratifying results.
