All About Our Specialty In Retina Care
The retina is a thin layer of tissue that lines the back part of the inside of your eye, located near your optic nerve. Its function is to take the light focused from your cornea and lens and convert it into neural signals to be sent to the brain. It is essential to keep your retina functioning to enjoy a lifetime of good eye sight!
It is important to keep up with routine eye exams to check for any issues that can affect your vision. Retinal specialists treat and diagnose a range of conditions including diseases and trauma of the eye. Our doctor works both in office and hospital settings to best treat our patients.
When Should I see a Retina Specialist?
If your ophthalmologist or optometrist has referred you to a retina specialist, they likely suspect or know you are experiencing a condition that requires our expertise. If you are experiencing any difficulties with your vision or are noticing changes, make an appointment to have your eyes examined and express your symptoms with your doctor. It is common for people over the age of 55 to begin experiencing symptoms of common conditions and diseases such as macular degeneration and more. Symptoms that would prompt needing an appointment include changes in vision, pain, red eye, flashes and floaters, or trauma to the eye.
Some retinal complications do not show any symptoms early, and can only be found by a full retinal examination before causing symptoms after increasing damage going untreated. We express it is important to have routine examinations even without experiencing symptoms to help catch conditions early and maintain a healthy retina.
