The key to successfully managing retinal disorders is a quick assessment of the problem and treatment. The usual treatment for retinal disorders is administering injections such as steroid implant (Ozurdex) and anti-VEGF (Eylea, Avastin, and Lucentis) into the vitreous cavity (intravitreal injections).
The purpose of this treatment is to prevent further damage to the photoreceptors and restore the anatomy of the retina. The surgeon will administer these injections under local anaesthetics and may use a laser, but this is unlikely due to the recent improvements in the treatment.
We offer different types of intravitreal injections, depending on the condition of the patient. The first step involved in your retinal treatment disorder is a consultation with our experienced consultants. During the consultation, the consultant will check your eyes to determine the most suitable course of treatment for you.
Most times, patients receive same-day treatment, but we always present several options to our patients for them to decide which is best for them. You may choose to get the treatment on the same day as your appointment or book another appointment to receive your treatment.
The number and frequency of injections needed depend on the patient's condition and the way the person responds to treatment. Before your treatment, you would have a special plan which our clinicians will monitor during your treatment and make adjustments when necessary.
After you receive your injection and the anaesthetic wears off, you may experience some discomfort, but paracetamol can help ease the pain. You may use lubricant eye drops to reduce the dryness of the eyes.
For the first 48 hours after receiving the injection, you may notice that your eyes will likely become photosensitive and red, but the symptoms will subside within 2 to 3 days. If these symptoms persist further, contact our medical team.
Some patients experience floaters after receiving the injections, but this also clears off after a few days. The risk of getting blind after receiving the injection is about 1 in 1000, which is similar to most other conditions relating to the retina. Before the treatment, our surgeons will discuss the benefits and risks of the treatment plan, then instruct you on how to take care of your eyes after the treatment properly.
The prices below are inclusive of the surgeon's fee, the injection, scan, and consequent aftercare appointments.

I had an absolutely wonderful experience doing Lasik at this clinic. Their entire staff was extremely professional and courteous throughout the entire process.
My surgeon was wonderful, made me feel entirely at ease before and during surgery. Highly recommended.
Laser eye surgery, now glasses free after 23 years! :)
I have always thought about laser, I have worn glasses for 23 years. I was very anxious, worried about the what ifs. I had an appointment with Dr Mani, he explained everything to me and I decided to go ahead with the surgery. It was so fast, Dr Mani did remind me to be patient and I think this is very important. I am now glasses free and hoping this will continue! After care was good, a week after surgery I was concerned and Dr Mani invited me down to check my eyes to be sure all was ok. Thank you
LASIK with Dr. Mani
I had LASIK surgery with Dr. Mani. It was painless, smooth, and everything went well. The staff and Dr. Mani are all friendly and will answer all questions asked. Will recommend 100%! Thank you!
I had a great experience performing my laser eye surgery at Optimal Vision Clinic. All the staffs are very helpful, co-operative and supportive throughout the treatment process. On the first call, they explained the entire procedure in details and gave necessary instructions at every stage. My eye surgeon made me feel comfortable and relaxed before and during the procedure. Aftercare was done properly with a thorough check-up of my eyes. I would like to recommend this clinic to everyone!
Very happy and impressed with the highly professional care and service I’ve received at the Optimal Vision clinic. Dr Mani is so professional, and he explained everything about Laser surgery and answered all my questions. The surgery was quick and almost completely painless. My eyes have healed perfectly and quickly. I would highly recommend this clinic.
My husband had been experiencing discomfort in his left eye since July and was seen by various doctors/consultants even at the Queen Mary’s hospital but no abnormalities were found.
This week Dr. Mani discovered the fault which happened to be Retina detachment with three tears.
Dr. Mani’s preciseness and his perfectionist attitude to attention to details, detected the source of the main issue and saved my husband’s eye. We feel utterly grateful and can not recommend him enough for his excellence.
