Your eyes get taken for granted until or unless they malfunction. Our adult retina care here at The Retina Group of Washington is based on the fact that only with experienced, skilled, cutting edge attention can you overcome the the types of problems that can affect your retinas and either restore or maintain a high degree of eye health.
Your retinas serve a vital role in your ability to see your best. They receive light that has entered through the front of your eyes, and are instrumental to turning that light into a view-able image. It’s fair to say that without your retinas operating properly, it would be impossible for you to experience even adequate vision, let alone excellent vision. The list of possible threats to your retinal health is extensive, but among the most typical issues that our 21045 retinal ophthalmologist addresses on a regular basis are age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and either torn or detached retinas. Among the possible consequences that are related to your retinas are physical harm to the blood vessels inside them, vision loss in the center of your visual field, and blindness. Some basic symptoms that you should be on the lookout for are blurry vision, any loss of vision however minimal, and spots in your field of vision (floaters). Diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration, however, do not reveal symptoms in their early stages. As such, it is recommended that anyone over 40 or who has either been diagnosed with diabetes or is at high risk for it by tested by our 21045 retinal ophthalmologist once per year. Fortunately, we have advanced methods of treatment as part of our adult retina care, both medical and surgical.
If you have any concerns about the wellness of your eyes, or your primary care doctor or eye doctor has suggested that you see a specialist in adult retina care, reach out to our office to book an appointment to be examined by our 21045 retinal ophthalmologist.
