Asian Eye Hospital and laser Institute

The Retina
The retina is the light-sensitive
tissue lining the back of our eye.
Light rays are focused onto
the retina through our cornea,
pupil and lens.
The retina converts the light
rays into impulses that travel
through the optic nerve to our
brain, where they are interpreted
as the images we see

Disease And Conditions Of Retina

Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Diabetic Retinopathy
Macular Hole/Pucker
Retinal Detachment
River Blindness/Onchocerciasis
Retinitis Pigmentosa

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetes can cause blood vessels to leak causing macular

edema and /or abnormal blood vessel to grow and
possibly bleed causing proliferative diabetic retinopathy .

Macular Hole/Pucker

A macular hole is a disorder in

which the center portion of the
retina, which is called the macula,
develops a hole.
The macula is the portion of the
retina that is responsible for your
ability to see small fine print, to
read, and to do detail work.

Retinal Vein Occlusion

Retinal vein occlusion occurs when one of the tiny retinal
veins becomes blocked by a blood clot. Risk factors, apart
