Retina

RetinaThe Retina is a subspecialty of ophthalmology concerned with disorders of the back of the eye, many of which may have very serious visual consequences if left untreated. Some of the more common disorders a retina specialist will treat are Age Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD), Diabetic Eye disease, retinal detachments, and vascular disease of the retina. At Ophthalmology Associates, our retinal specialists have at their disposal the most modern complement of diagnostic and therapeutic equipment available. We are proud to provide digital angiography/photography. We also provide Retinal Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) which allows our retina specialists to view your retina as if looking at a cross section under a microscope. We provide the full complement of laser retina eye surgery treatments for Age Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD) and Diabetes. For qualifying patients, there is also the opportunity to participate in clinical research trials evaluating new treatments for Macular Degeneration.

The retina is a thin sheet of nerve tissue in the back of the eye where light rays are focused and transmitted to the brain through the optic nerve. Within the center of the retina is the macula, which is responsible for clear central vision. Retinal damage is one of the leading causes of blindness, as this sensitive tissue is often susceptible to trauma, disease and other damaging effects that can impair a person's vision and quality of life.

A healthy retina is essential to maintaining clear vision and overall eye functioning. At Ophthalmology Associates, we provide comprehensive retina eye surgery treatments and prevention services for a wide range of retinal conditions such as macular degeneration, diabetic complications, retinal detachment and others.

Laser Retina Eye Surgery

Laser retina surgery can be used to treat a wide range of retina conditions through minimally invasive techniques that produce precise, long-lasting results. It can be used to treat diabetic retinopathy, retinal vein occlusions, age-related macular degeneration, retinal detachments and more. Depending on the patient's condition, the laser may be used to seal leaking blood vessels, repair tears, remove newly formed blood vessels or destroy tumors. These procedures are performed in the doctor's office and usually require only anesthetic eye drops to numb the area prior to treatment.
