Age-related macular degeneration
This is a common eye condition which results in damage to the macula as you age. The macula affects your central vision and while there is no cure, you can access certain treatments with the help of your ophthalmologist.
Floaters are strands or clumps that form in your eye’s vitreous. The vitreous is the gel-like material inside the eye. They usually form as part of the ageing process and can affect your vision. Severe floaters are treated via vitrectomy.
As the name suggests, a macular hole is when a tear or hole appears in your eye’s macula. This can affect your central vision.
Problems with epiretinal membrane can result in the retina being pulled out of place and detached. The epiretinal membrane a cellular tissue that can form on the surface of the retina. The treatment of this problem is vitrectomy which effectively removes the membrane.
Cataracts are the clouding of your eye’s lens. It usually occurs in later and senile cataract removal is a common and straightforward process. Miss Grabowska regularly performs senile cataract surgeries as well as intraocular lens exchanges.
