Mr Yodaiken’s special interests are:Dry Eye and Blepharitis: Dry Eye is a condition that occurs when the eye does not produce tears properly, or when the tears are not of the correct consistency and evaporate too quickly. Blepharitis is the inflammation of the eyelid, with bacteria coating the eyelid margin near the base of the eyelashes. Blepharitis can either be acute or it could be chronic which might be a long lasting problem.

Medical Retina: This is another area of the Consultant’s speciality that deals with conditions at the back of the eye, which are treated medically with drugs and our modern treatment.Glaucoma: Glaucoma is a complicated disease in when there is damage to the optic nerve, this leads to progressive, irreversible vision loss. The fluid pressure within the eye rises. Age-related Macular Degeneration (ARMD): is a breakdown of the eye’s macula, an eye condition that deteriorates the center of the Retina. Macula is the part of the retina that is responsible for your central vision, allowing you to see center, fine details clearly. Intravenous Fluorescein angiography (IVFA): This a specialized eye test offered by ophthalmologists in order to diagnose and treat eye disorders.Intravitreal Injection for ARMD: Intravitreal drug delivery is a method of treatment of many retinal diseases, commonly including ARMD, Diabetic Retinopathy, and Retinal Vein Occlusions.Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT): This is an established non-invasive imaging test that uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of your retina, the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye.Cataract surgery: cataract surgery is when the lens inside your eye that has become cloudy is removed and replaced with an artificial lens (called an intraocular lens, or IOL) to restore clear vision.
