Question
My 28 years old brother has been detected with holes in retina of both eyes. He has glasses of -9 . He lives in a small town in eastern India. Doctors suspects tear in retina too. What treatment should he opt for and expenses required for the treatment. Please help.

Answer
Dear Rita,
Retinal holes need to be examined for :
1. size
2. number of holes
3. are they actual tears/ degeneration or macular holes...hence exact diagnosis is necessary.

The retinal surgeon needs to decide line of treatment.
the simplest is usually Argon Laser.
