Varying widely, retinal disease can cause an array of symptoms from floaters or flashing lights in the eye to sudden and severe vision loss. The retina, or thin layer of tissue, is located in the back of your eye on the inside wall. It contains light-sensitive cells that receive and make sense of what you see. When this thin layer of tissue is damaged, your vision begins to deteriorate. There are a few factors that increase your risk of retinal disease including natural aging, diabetes, eye trauma, and family genetics. If you have any of these risk factors or feel you may be susceptible to retinal disease, be sure to schedule regular eye exams. It is important that your optometrist and ophthalmologist work together to monitor the health of your eyes.
From laser treatments to medicine injections, there are several retinal treatment options.
Depending on the severity of your symptoms and the cause of your retinal disease, your doctor will help you determine which treatment option is best for you.
