What ENT disorders are treated at Apollo Spectra?

Strabismus (Crossed eyes)

In this condition, the patient’s eyes are not aligned. So, when they look at something, it doesn’t work together. One eye can look in or out or up or down. Some children are born with this disorder and are known as congenital strabismus. This can be because a part of the nervous system is damaged or the one that controls the eye muscles. It can also mean a tumor or an eye disorder. If this sudden occurs in an adult, it can mean he is suffering from something serious, such as a stroke.

The treatments should start immediately in order to avoid its continuation into adulthood. Surgery is also an option and can be successful when performed at a younger age.

Macular degeneration

Also known as age-related macular degeneration (AMD), this condition occurs when the retina depletes, hampering the vision. Although there is no cure for this condition, it can be treated to help the patient lead a normal life. Vitamins, laser therapy, medications, and visual aids are used to treat this condition.

Diabetic retinopathy

It is a condition, which affects the eye, due to the complications in sugar levels. In the beginning, you will not notice any symptoms, just minor vision problems, but gradually, it can cause blindness. People with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes can suffer from this condition. The symptoms in the later stages include; spots in vision, blurred vision, a vision that keeps fluctuating, impaired color in vision, and eventually, loss of vision.

Astigmatism

This means the eyes are not fully round. When you look at a normal eyeball, it is fully round. Therefore, when the light falls on it, it bends perfectly, resulting in a clear view. However, if it is not round normally, the view might feel out of focus, blurry or wavy. It can be fixed with the help of glasses, contacts, and even surgery if required.

Uveitis

It is a condition where the middle layer of the eyes (uvea) get swollen. The reason for this can be both infectious and non-infectious. Although not a serious condition, if not treated on time, it can also lead to the loss of vision. The symptoms of this condition include; severe redness in eyes, pain, sensitivity to light, vision becomes blurry, and spots in vision.

Pterygium

In this condition, the patient will experience a growth of pink and fleshy tissue on the conjunctiva, which is the clear tissue that surrounds the eyelids and the eyeball. This first occurs on the side, which is closest to the nose and then gradually grows towards the pupils. Although it looks dangerous, it is not a sign of cancer. However, in very extreme cases, it can cover the pupils, damaging the vision.

Macular Edema

If you are someone who is suffering from diabetes, it is important to understand that if you don’t manage your blood sugar levels, it can cause eye problems. The most common diabetic eye condition is the macular edema. It is important to realize the gravity of this condition as it can lead to loss of vision.

Keratitis

The inflammation of the cornea is known as keratitis. It is generally the result of an infection, which involves bacteria, viruses, fungi, or parasites. The non-infectious keratitis is the result of an injury or wearing the lenses for an extended period of time.

Stye

A red bump, which resembles a pimple that occurs on the outer edge of the eyelid is known as stye. There are several oil glands around the lids and because of dead skin cells, dirt, and oil, these glands become clogged. This initiates the growth of bacteria on the inside of the gland, causing bumps. The symptoms of this condition include; pain, swelling, tear production, the crust-like structure around the lids, soreness, and itching.
