WHAT IS RETINAL DISEASE?

Retinal diseases are a range of disorders that affect the thin layer of tissue lining the back of the eye. The retina, which is responsible for receiving light and converting it into neural signals for the brain, is one of the most important parts of the eye.

 

Early symptoms of retinal disease include:

  • Sudden appearance of floaters in the vision
  • Blurred vision
  • Flashes of light in one or both eyes
  • “Shadow” over visual field
  • Loss of vision

RETINA SURGERY AND OTHER TREATMENTS
