Treatments of Retinal Diseases and Uveitis


Uveitis may include the following treatments to control inflammation:
1. Topical eye drops or ointments.
2. Oral medications.
3. Sub-Tenon injection of corticosteroids, such as Kenalog.
4. Intravitreal injection of corticosteroids.
5. Intravitreal implant of medications, such as Retisert (corticosteroids).

Age Related Macular Degeneration treatments:
1. Intravitreal injection of medications such as anti-vascular endothelium growth factor (anti-VEGF) agents (e.g., Lucentis, Eylea, Avastin).
2. Laser treatment.

Diabetic Retinopathy treatment:
1. Focal and pan retinal photocoagulation laser treatment.
2. Intravitreal injection of corticosteroids or anti-VEGF agents.
3. Vitrectomy surgery to clear out blood and to help prevent progression of the disease.

Retinal Detachment repair:
1. Pneumatic retinopexy, where a gas bubble is placed in the vitreous cavity. This is usually done in conjunction with laser treatment or cryotherapy.
2. Vitrectomy with gas bubble or silicone oil placement: it is placed in the vitreous cavity at the end of vitrectomy surgery for treatment of retinal detachment. The gas bubble will be absorbed within 1 – 2 months. The silicone oil will remain until it is removed in 4 months to 1 year, or longer if indicated.
3. Scleral buckle, where a silicone band is placed outside the sclera (the white eye wall) to support the retina.

Other retinal related problems may require any of the treatments above, such laser and anti-VEGF injection for retinal vein occlusion, or vitrectomy and antibiotic injection for severe eye infection.
