Retinal Disease in Delaware
The retina is a light sensitive tissue that lines that back interior of the eye. This delicate tissue is responsible for turning light into signal for the brain, which turn into the images we see. A healthy retina is essential for good vision. Unfortunately, there are many diseases and conditions that affect the retina.
Here at Delaware Eye Care, we offer a wide range of treatments and services focusing on the retina. We deal with common conditions such as diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration, as well as retinal tears and detachment. If you are suffering from a retinal disease, Delaware Eye Care is the place for you!
When the retina is damaged from disease or injury, vision loss occurs. Most times, this vision loss may not be restored by treatments. Doctors can always do their best to stop or slow progression of a disease, however. This means that, when caught early on, most retinal disease is manageable and vision loss can be minimal.
It is important to attend yearly or bi-yearly eye examinations in which you receive a dilated eye exam. During this exam, doctors dilate your pupils, enabling them to look at your retina for any signs of disease. This is the best way to catch a retinal disease early on to stop or slow progression of vision loss.
