Retina is the light-sensitive film at the back of the eye. A retina specialist is a medical doctor who has specialized in ophthalmology and sub-specialized in diseases and surgery of the vitreous body of the eye and the retina.
At Apex Eye Care Clinic (located in Baner, Pune) large range of conditions that affect the retina are treated effectively. These include common conditions such as diabetic eye disease, age-related macular degeneration and retinal vein occlusions, as well as numerous other less common macular and retinal conditions including the rare inherited eye diseases.
Dr. Pradnya Kanase did her special training and fellowship in Medical Retina from H. V. Desai Eye Hospital, Pune. Apex Eye Care Clinic has range of most advanced retinal imaging technologies for accurate and speedy diagnosis for our patients.
The eye functions much like a camera. Light rays enter the eye, passing through the cornea, the aqueous humor -- transparent fluid in the front of the eye -- and then the pupil and into the lens. The lens bends the light rays to focus objects onto the retina lining the back of the eye. From there, the image passes through the retinal cells, into the optic nerve, and finally to the back of the brain which process the images.
