Retinal Eye Conditions

We offer rapid access to a range of assessments and tests to assist in the diagnosis of Retinal Conditions.

We treat a wide range of conditions such as:

  • Age Related Macular Degeneration
  • Diabetic Retinopathy
  • Retinal Vein Occlusion
  • Epiretinal Membrane
  • Retinal Detachment
  • Floaters
  • Flashes of Light

For each of the retinal eye conditions we treat here at the Mater Private Hospital, a wide variety of both medical and surgical options are available to patients. In advance of carrying out any treatment, our team ensures that thorough investigations have been carried out in order to determine what stage the condition is at and how much damage has been caused already before choosing the right treatment option for the patient.

Retinal Scans & Assessments

A range of assessments & scans are available on-site in the retinal eye centre and are used in formulating your treatment and management plan

  • Fluorescein Angiography
  • OCT high resolution imaging
  • Colour Photography
  • Autofluoresence
  • ICG imaging
  • Diabetic Screening

Once you have been seen by your Consultant and a diagnosis is made, your Consultant may refer you for repeat scans to monitor response to treatment or changes in your eye condition. Most scans require pupil dilation, after which near vision will be blurred for up to 6 to 8 hours. We recommend you have an escort home and that you wear sunglasses as you may be sensitive to light. You should not drive for 24 hours after pupil dilation.
