The patient was treated of macular degeneration

I visited the Cardiolitic clinic twice for treatment of macular dystrophy. I was given the drug Avastin, which, unfortunately, does not apply in Russia. I lived in a hotel, so I cannot assess the comfort of the hospital wards. The clinic itself made a very good impression on me. The precise organization of patient reception, the friendly attitude and high professionalism of the staff delight me. Pleases good enough knowledge of the Russian language, which allows you to calmly communicate, discuss these examinations and treatment methods. I live in Kaliningrad, and it is also an opportunity to get to Vilnius by car. Thus, everything suits me. I plan to continue treatment in this medical institution. I would be happy to advise my friends to use the services of the Cardiolite clinic. Communicated with Pavel Popkov. Received clear answers to all questions. They helped me quickly contact the clinic and make an appointment. Thanks for the good work.

What happens if you have glaucoma?

Glaucoma is an eye disease, which is characterized with the high intraocular pressure. The disease damages the eye’s optic nerve and can lead to vision loss or blindness.

In case of glaucoma, you may notice such symptoms:

  • severe eye or/and head pain
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • hazed/blurred vision
  • sudden vision loss.

Glaucoma patients slowly lose their peripheral (side) vision. They do not see objects out of the eye corner. It seems like looking through a tunnel. The central vision decreases by the time until no vision remains.

How is glaucoma detected?

The risk of developing glaucoma increases dramatically after 40 years. With the onset of this age, ophthalmologists recommend a regular eye examination.

The danger of glaucoma is in mild symptomatology at the initial stages. More than half of the patients turn to ophthalmologists in Germany, when the eye nerve is destroyed by 50-80%.

2 weeks before the diagnosis, the patient needs to remove contact lenses, no additional preparation is required.

Diagnostics

Purpose of the procedure

Description

Consultation of ophthalmologist

Create a detailed diagnostic and pre-treatment plan

Reception at the expert before diagnostic procedures, consultation after reception of their results

Non-contact tonometry

Measure the intraocular pressure (IOP)

For the procedure, the patient puts his head on the stand of the device and fixes the gaze at one point. IOP is measured by air impact. With high eye sensitivity, analgesia with drops is allowed.

The duration of the procedure is 2-3 minutes.

The norm of IOP (intraocular pressure) is 12-25 mm Hg. Art.

Gonioscopy

Visually examine the anterior chamber of the eye

The structure is studied by a gonioscope and a microscope with a built-in lighting device (slit lamp). The patient is sitting, the head is fixed by focusing the forehead and chin in the lamp stand.

Duration of the study - 15 minutes.

Before the procedure it is necessary to measure IOP

Perimetry

Investigate the field of view and identify "dark" spots

It is carried out with the help of a perimeter - a device of a cup-like shape. The patient's focus is on the label. The computer randomly generates sound signals and forms light flashes, the patient records each flash by pressing a button.

The duration of the procedure is from 5 to 15 minutes

OCT (optical coherence tomography)

Visually examine and assess the condition of the fundus

Scanning the structure of the anterior and posterior segments of the eyeball by a tomograph. The patient focuses on a special label, the tomograph operator scans for 2.5-3 seconds. To improve the quality of the pictures, the pupil is dilated with special drops.

The whole procedure lasts no more than 15 minutes


Methods of glaucoma treatment

The lack of proper treatment of glaucoma leads to a drop in visual acuity and optic atrophy. The main task of treating glaucoma is to prevent complete loss of vision by reducing IOP (pressure inside the eyeball).

A suitable method of treatment ophthalmologist appoints according to the results of diagnosis.

Treatment method

Description

Indications

Medication Therapy

Decreased IOP with the help of eye drops. Used drugs not available in the CIS countries

With chronic open-angle glaucoma

Laser iridectomy

In the peripheral part of the iris, a small hole is formed by the laser. This balances the pressure in the anterior and posterior chambers of the eye

With an angle-closure glaucoma (primary, secondary or mixed)

Laser trabeculoplasty

Stretching trabeculae (connective tissue plates), which leads to better circulation of the intraocular fluid and a decrease in pressure in the eye chamber

In the early stages of open-angle glaucoma


Trabeculectomy

Removal of trabecular tissue to accelerate outflow from the anterior eye chamber

Appointed in severe cases

Nonpenetrating deep sclerectomy

Surgical method consists in thinning a small part of the cornea - this stimulates the outflow of moisture and reduces IOP

With open-angle disease

Canaloplasty

Non-penetrating surgical method. The doctor cuts the eye and places a microcatheter into the hole to widen the drainage channel. After the procedure, the catheter is removed, the seam is overlapped

The method is effective in severe cases

Technology Trabectome

Microinvasive procedure, during which the ophthalmologist makes a microscopic incision in the area blocking the outflow of the intraocular fluid

It is prescribed in the late stages of glaucoma

Implant EX-PRESS

Between the inner and outer shells of the eye is placed an express mini-shunt that performs the function of drainage and maintains a normal fluid balance

The method is effective even at the latest stages of glaucoma, after unsuccessful trabeculectomy

The patient was treated of retinal detachment

I have retina detachments issues therefore I applied this group of individuals. When we agreed there was one professor the one week prior to my arrival we retired and I was offered Dr. Shaudig whom i eventually never met. On meeting in the reception I was advised that said professor was ill today. So I was routinely and e consumer,inglese inspected by a couple of young 1doctors who told me nothing new in the end. The story cost me min 1000 Euros. For just nothing. It could look funny that such cases still occur in the 21 sr century in Western Europe. I was promised a report on my case from the Professor but I’m still looking forward to enjoy it. This circus took places in a Hamburg 28.11.17. Think twice everyone. Not all the gold that glitters

The patient was treated of crohn's disease

We did not go to the clinic, we sent histology for review. Answers waited a long time and pulled out, we can say with forceps. All the answers were very concise, constantly had to ask for the addition. They paid for the advice of the doctor, but in fact did not receive it. In general, this hospital disappointed us. Perhaps the doctors there are good, but remote consultation is lame very much. Constantly communicated with Yulia Andreychuk. Yulia answered all questions quickly and provided information well. I was pleased with her work.
