The retina is the posterior or rear portion of the eye where light rays fall in order to enable the eye to see clearly.
Retinal disorders include:
- Retinal detachment
- Tearing of the retina
- Micro-vascular abnormalities that lead to bleeding
- Diabetic retinopathy
- Macular degeneration (age-related loss of central vision)
- Uveitis (inflammation)
- Retinitis pigmentosa (poor night vision and narrowing of blood vessels)
- Other inherited retinal eye disorder
While some retinal disorders can be managed using topical solutions, others can be treated using advanced laser technologies; and some require surgery.
