Ophthalmology Department

The ophthalmology department operates out of the Mardaleishvili Medical Centre. Specialists of the clinic, under the guidance of leading ophthalmologist-transplantologist Nana Digmelashvili, restored vision and increased the level of its acuity for hundreds of patients.

In the Mardaleishvili Medical Centre’s Eye Clinic, cell therapy is widely used in the treatment of many eye diseases when traditional methods are ineffective or completely unusable. Doctors note significant success in the treatment of the following diseases:

  • Nystagmus
  • Amblyopia
  • Atrophy of the optic nerve
  • Degeneration of the retinal pigment epithelium

Operating room equipment

In order to restore the quality of vision, doctors began to practice stem cell transplantation in the following ways:

  • Intravitreally (in the eye)
  • Retrobulbarly (in the eye socket)
  • Intrathecally (into the canal of the spinal cord)
  • Intravenously

While performing each type of operation, strict control over the introduction of a needle into the eye or spinal canal is required, so the manipulation is carried out with three-dimensional visualization. Modern equipment in operating rooms helps to achieve the maximum therapeutic effect and to exclude any risks of trauma to tissues and nerve endings during transplantation.

The collection of biomaterial for the treatment of these eye diseases is carried out in the clinic. During the collection of basic cells from the ilium, the patient is under anesthesia. Then, in the laboratory, the isolation of autologous cells necessary for the treatment of eye diseases is performed.

Qualification of ophthalmologists

The clinic’s doctors have great experience in the treatment of eye diseases with innovative methods because they have honed their skills in leading clinics in Europe, the USA, and elsewhere in the world.

Employees of the Eye Clinic (anesthesiologists, cell therapists, and ophthalmologists) constantly self-develop and improve their skills in ophthalmology and cell surgery and attend international conferences and trainings.
