Retinal Diseases

The retina is the part of the eye that allows us to see, so diseases of the retina can lead to severely impaired vision or even blindness. There are many types of diseases of the retina—some are fairly common and others quite rare. The treatment for some retinal conditions can be quite straightforward, whereas for other diseases treatment is complex. Identifying and treating retinal disease is critical to your overall sight and therefore to your quality of life. The earlier you receive a diagnosis, the sooner you can begin treatment and the better your overall prognosis.
