A website for the premiere hospital which specializes in treating diseases of the vitreous, retina and macula. We are a group of ophthalmologists who have super specialized in treating the most important parts of the eye-the vitreous, the retina and the macula. In this site we provide you with the information regarding our hospital, services offered and some of the common diseases of the eye.

The faculty of the RETINA INSTITUTE OF KARNATAKA specializes in the evaluation as well as treating all types of retinal diseases. Some of the common diseases of the retina are diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachments, macular hole, injuries of the eye, endophthalmitis, retinopathy of prematurity, uvietis and other inflammatory conditions of the eye.

Evaluation is by means of special tests like fundus fluoresce in angiography, optical coherence tomography, B-Scan of the eye etc. Treatment is either in the form of medical treatment like lasers or surgery.

We attempt to explain to the patient in simple non technical terms the problems and the modalities of treatment offered. We collaborate closely with the referral ophthalmologists while remaining available for re-consultation at any time.
