ABOUT

We are a setup with Retina specialists - Dr Nitin S Shetty a vitreo retinal surgeon and Dr Subashini a medical retina specialist, Optometrist - Anish Rajan, administrative staff - Mrs Pushpa and our housekeeping staff - Komala. 

 

Retina Clinic is essentially an outpatient setup, geared for a full eye examination and investigations. Different procedures carried out include fundus photography, fluorescein and ICG angiography, B-scan ultrasound, OCT, Retinal lasers and Intravitreal Injections. 

 

The surgical treatment is carried out at a dedicated state-of-art Ophthalmology facility setup at Manipal Hospital, Old Airport Road, Bangalore. Most surgeries are day care procedures and do not require overnight stay in the hospital. Surgical care needs a good physician and anaesthetist back up - hence the setting of the Ophthalmology operation facility in Bangalore’s leading multi speciality hospital provides a lot of safety and benefits.
