What is Retinal Laser Surgery

Retinal laser surgery is a type of eye surgery that is used to treat a variety of conditions affecting the retina, the thin layer of tissue in the back of the eye that is responsible for receiving and processing light signals.The procedure involves directing a laser beam of light onto the retina to burn away areas of scar tissue, or to seal leaking or weakened blood vessels.

This surgery is used to treat conditions such as diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, and retinal detachment.It is a safe and effective procedure that can improve vision, reduce the risk of vision loss, and even prevent total blindness in some cases.

During the procedure, the patient is given anesthetic eye drops, and a special device is used to keep the eye open.The laser beam is then directed onto the retina to perform the necessary treatment.

After the procedure, the patient may experience some minor discomfort such as redness, sensitivity to light, and blurred vision.These symptoms generally subside within a few days.

Regular follow-up visits to the doctor are important to ensure the health of the eye and monitor the progress of the surgery.

Absolutely love how understanding Dr. Kumud Raut is. The only place where I have not been told about only the process of getting a surgery, but rather they insist on educating about how the eye functions and the importance of having a healthy eye before any surgery.
