Medical and Surgical Retina Unit

Clínica Ocular Dr. Tirado has been offering the best retina, vitreous and macula specialists for years.

A retinologist is a physician specialized in ophthalmology with medical-surgical training and preferential dedication to this subspecialty, a reality that has been present for years in the best ophthalmology centers.

The Spanish Retina and Vitreous Society, to which our specialists belong, has been working to ensure that this reality finds its regulation and legal framework, as well as to facilitate the training of young people.

A retinologist commonly treats diseases such as macular holes, epiretinal membranes, age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and macular edema, vitreous hemorrhages, prevention and treatment of retinal detachments, retinal vascular occlusions, uveitis, vasculitis, and ocular tumors.

We have the most modern diagnostic equipment These range from conventional digital angiography to panretinal cameras such as the optomap, which provides a panoramic view of the retina, facilitating the detection and exploration with and without contrasts of the peripheral retina, the importance of which is becoming increasingly evident in many retinal pathologies.

Autofluorescence is another screening technique that we perform regularly. It is characterized by its non-invasive nature and the relevant clinical information it provides. It is a very important tool that allows us to provide you with more accurate diagnoses and more appropriate treatments.

Another diagnostic tool that we offer you, and which is already consolidated in modern ophthalmology, is optical coherence tomography. Years ago we became pioneers in our field by providing our patients with a Zeiss Stratus OCT, the gold standard at the time. Today we have two Topcon Master CT scanners, which are a routine diagnostic test, since the images they provide of the retina resemble real histological images, allowing us to discover small alterations at the level of the retinal tissues.

But we have gone even further and now have a Triton OCT Angio Triton. It allows normal structural OCT images or AngioOCT images of the retina, i.e. it allows to see vascular patterns, without the use of intravenous contrasts. At the therapeutic level, we combine the best surgical team and the most advanced Alcon retina technology, with the new Constellation vitreotome, the latest generation, all in facilities that we offer in our own clinic.

It is a specialized retina operating room, conceived and designed by and for ophthalmologists whose main dream is to be able to perform surgery of the highest quality. It is not by chance that we can offer you the best surgical results in the practice of pars plana vitrectomy for retinal detachment, macular holes, epiretinal membrane removal, surgical treatments for diabetics, injection of antiangiogenic agents for macular degeneration.

It is in this exquisite surgical environment that we perform the different intravitreal treatments that address many of the retinal pathologies: Lucentis, Avastin, intravitreal implants of dexamethasone, triamcinolone (the latter is less and less used). This ensures that we minimize as much as possible the infectious complications inherent to these procedures, which in our experience are fortunately very infrequent.

We have a modern solid-state thermal laser, which allows us to treat multiple retinal pathologies with the highest quality and the best results.

Another therapeutic option whose indication today is limited to a few selected cases, but which we also make available to our patients, is photodynamic therapy with Verteporfin. There is contrasted scientific evidence that makes it a very good option for the treatment of chronic central serous chorioretinopathy.
