VITREO RETINA CARE

The vitreo-retinal dept goes pari-passu with the concept of complete and holistic examination of the diabetic patient. The retina contains many small blood vessels which get altered in diabetes and herald the onset of the severity of the disease. Since it is the only tissue in the human body with ultra-structural changes that can be viewed by the naked eye, it forms the back-bone for diabetic examination in patients. The vitreo-retinal dept in KID has the latest and most modern equipments to aid the diagnostician in coming to a conclusion regarding the status of diabetes and its eye related complications. We have 2 consultants full-time and a host of back up personnel to aid in the daily working of the dept.
