Vitreo-Retina


Vitreo-Retina Clinic

Vitreo-retina (VR) and Uveitis is one of the well equipped and busy clinic of LEI. No such service has been provided by any other centre nearby our hospital so it is the main referral center for VR from all around. All types of Vitreoretinal surgery, Green Laser and intravitreal avastin services are available. Important diagnostic supports like OCT, FFA and USG B scan services are also being delivered.

Currently we have one VR surgeon and one medical retina specialist. Besides, one ophthalmologist is in VR fellowship and another in Uveitis fellowship elsewhere who will join our VR team once they will complete their fellowship. Our future plan is to develop it as VR hub, to provide high quality service at reasonable cost, to establish it as an international VR centre and to initiate medical tourism.
