Agarwal’s Hosp restores chronic eye disorder

| | BHUBANESWAR | in Bhubaneswar

The Dr Agarwal’s Eye Hospital, Sahid Nagar here restored a 33-years-old optic disc pit congenital disorder of a patient, Raj Kishore Mandal, trough treatment.

The optic disc pit congenital disorder occurs due to the imperfect closure of the embryonic fissure or the wall that encloses the eyes.

Mandal, a contract labour of Paradip Port, was unaware of his condition till recently. Six months ago, he developed distorted vision in his left eye. Lack of clear vision troubled him a lot. At the Dr Agarwal’s Eye Hospital, Dr Samir Vankawala, Vitreo retinal surgeon, Dr Agarwal’s Eye Hospital also detected that Mandal had also developed macular detachment. The condition was so serious that he had already lost 50 per cent of his vision. The doctors opted for a four-stage combination therapy which included Pars plana vitrectomy, ILM peeling, autologous ILM implantation and C3F8 gas injection. Mandal has not only got his vision back, but has rejoined his work.
