Thermotherapy offers a wide range of modalities. One area we will explore is Friction therapy. In this video we will briefly look at Granular/Salt Glow treatment, Cloth/Mitten Treatment, and Dry Brush Treatment. All are abrasive stimulation to the epidermis of the body.

-Frequency doubled YAG (Green) Laser -This laser is used for the treatment of patients with diabetic retinopathy,vascular pathologies and retinal holes or tears -Trans pupillary thermotherapy( TTT): It is a treatment modality useful in patients with age related macular degeneration -Photodynamic Therapy(PDT) It is a treatment modality useful in patients with age related macular degeneration. -Anti VEGF injection treatment: Three types of Anti VEGF injections are presently available.They are 1.Leucentis, 2. Macugen and 3. Avastin. This new modality of injection treatment has added a new dimension in treatment of age related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy. Vitreoretinal Surgery:Complicated retinal surgeries are now done routinely at N I O .We have all the facilities including scleral buckling, OS3 23 g sutureless vitrectomy system, Wide angle EIBOS viewing system and MOller Wiedel HI R 990 A Microscope needed to undertake complicated retinal surgeries.
