Welcome to Burjeel Day Surgery Center, Al Reem Island – a beacon of healing where innovative technology and unparalleled expertise converge to provide exceptional vitreoretinal care. Our dedicated ophthalmology department stands at the forefront of tackling complex retinal conditions, offering hope and clarity to those affected by vision impairment.

Understanding Vitreoretinal Diseases

Vitreoretinal diseases encompass a range of conditions that impact the vitreous and the retina of the eye, critical to producing clear, sharp images. From the onset of diabetic retinopathy, a leading cause of blindness among working-age individuals, to the delicate management of macular holes, our team is skilled in the diagnosis and treatment of these intricate disorders.

Below are the major vitreoretinal conditions we treat:

  • Diabetic Retinopathy: Damage to the retina’s blood vessels caused by diabetes.
  • Retinal Detachment: A medical emergency where the retina is pulled from its normal position.
  • Macular Hole: A small break in the macula, leading to blurred and distorted vision.
  • Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD): A disease associated with aging that gradually destroys sharp central vision.

Using high-resolution imaging, our specialists visualize the most nuanced internal structures of the eye, allowing for precise treatments tailored to each patient’s unique condition.

Diagnostic Excellence in Vitreoretinal Health

For accurate diagnosis, our facility is equipped with cutting-edge technologies including:

  • Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT): This non-invasive imaging test uses light waves to capture cross-section pictures of the retina, revealing its layers and helping to map and measure their thickness.
  • Fluorescein Angiography (FA): A procedure using a special dye to highlight blood vessels in the back of the eye to monitor circulation.
  • B-scan Ultrasonography: A test that provides a two-dimensional cross-sectional view of the eye and the orbit, offering essential information when the retina is not visible due to cataracts or vitreous hemorrhage.

Our diagnostic acumen ensures that no detail is overlooked in curating your personalized treatment plan.

Advanced Vitreoretinal Treatments

We offer an array of contemporary vitreoretinal treatments, and our surgeons adeptly perform:

  • Microincision Vitrectomy Surgery (MIVS): Our skilled retina surgeons perform MIVS with minimal sclerotomies, maximizing postoperative comfort and visual recovery speed.
  • Endoscopic Vitrectomy: Deployed in select cases to address anterior segment coincident pathologies or when ocular media clarity is compromised.
  • Intraoperative Optical Coherence Tomography (iOCT): Utilized to enhance surgical precision in membrane peeling and to ensure closure of macular holes intraoperatively.
  • Retina Laser Photocoagulation: Precise delivery of photocoagulation to target areas of ischemia or retinopexy around retinal breaks, utilizing pattern-scan laser technology for optimal precision and tissue preservation.

Our commitment to minimally invasive techniques means faster recovery and minimized discomfort, aligning with our philosophy of patient-centered care.

Is Vitreoretinal Surgery Safe?

Vitreoretinal surgeries at our center are performed by highly qualified surgeons and adhere to stringent safety protocols, rendering them as safe as current practices allow.

What Should Be Expected After Vitreoretinal Surgery?

Postoperative expectations vary based on the procedure, but most patients can anticipate an improvement in visual acuity alongside an explicit postoperative care plan to maximize recovery.
