What Treatments Do We Provide In Essendon?

At Essendon Eye Clinic, patients receive the most up-to-date treatments. Retinal laser for conditions such as diabetic retinopathy is performed with the latest laser machine to provide the safest treatment. We also perform intravitreal injections (injections in the back of the eye) for conditions such as wet macular degeneration on-site in our procedure room. Our specialists have a great deal of experience in these injections and ensure a painless procedure.

What is the Retina?

The retina is a thin layer of tissue with specialized cells that line the back wall of the eye. It converts the visual image into a neural signal, which is transmitted via the optic nerve to be interpreted by the brain. The macula is the part of the retina that serves to provide central vision that is necessary for reading and driving.

Medical Retina Conditions

Some common medical retina conditions include age-related macular degeneration (dry and wet forms) and diabetic changes of the retina including diabetic macular oedema and diabetic retinopathy. There are many other conditions including retinal vein occlusions, central serous chorioretinopathy and rare genetic disorders that can affect the retina.
