Acute Retinal Necrosis: It is a medical inflammatory condition of the eye that affects the retina (Posterior pole of the eye) which if not treated on time can lead to uveitis, blindness or retinal detachment.
Mr. Anup Rathod, 40-years male, complained of redness in his eyes, pain and decrease in his vision for 15 days. Anup works in an IT company meaning most of his time is dedicated to working in front of the computer. His eye problems started affecting his personal and professional life because he found it difficult to work on computers or commute to work.
The decreasing vision hampered his driving skills and even put strain on his eyes at work due to which he ended up missing deadlines. He mentioned that he preferred not taking his family out on weekends because he was scared that he may hit someone as he didn't have clear vision. Besides the decreasing vision, he was also annoyed with the constant redness in his eyes. He decided to have a consultation with an eye specialist. He started surfing on the internet wherein he chanced upon Advanced Eye Hospital and Institute (AEHI) located at Sanpada, Navi Mumbai. He booked an appointment for himself at AEHI almost instantly.
As he reached AEHI on the day of the appointment he had his routine eye check-up done then he was referred to Dr. Yogesh Patil, Vitreo Retinal Surgeon; the best retina specialist in Navi Mumbai. Mr. Anup was very happy that his eyes were going to be checked by Dr. Yogesh Patil as he knew he was in safe hands. Dr. Yogesh checked his eyes and after a thorough examination, explained to Anup, that there is inflammation in the retina (posterior pole of the eye). Dr. Yogesh Patil started him on oral antiviral medicines.
After a week Anup was called for his follow-up visits. Dr. Yogesh checked his eyes and noticed that the inflammation in the retina was decreasing. The doctor then tapered the dose of his medicine. He was also advised on maintaining a healthy lifestyle since the cause of acute retinal necrosis is viruses. Though one can't prevent it, a healthy immune system can always help fight it. Anup was asked to continue his follow-ups since it was crucial that his condition was monitored.
In his further follow-up, Anup was very happy as he could make out the difference in his vision by himself. His vision had improved, his pain and the redness of his eyes also came down substantially. Anup was delighted that he was treated by the best retina specialist at the best eye hospital in Navi Mumbai and he was thankful to Dr. Yogesh for restoring his vision.
