The retina is the light-sensitive layer of the eye and consists of four main layers; External neutral, photoreceptors, retinal and choroidal epithelium all composed of nerves, blood vessels, light-sensing rods, and connective tissue necessary for the eye to function optimally. Retinal diseases consist of a wide range of eye disorders that result in blurred vision and in more severe cases; blindness.

Symptoms and risk factors
Common signs and symptoms can be seen in nearly all types of retinal disorders. Specifications may include floating, blurred vision, blind spots in central vision, defects in peripheral vision, or even complete loss of vision. Symptoms are easily recognizable when viewed with one eye.
Retinal diseases have risk factors associated with genetics, medical conditions, and other external factors. The common factors are:

Some disorders of the retina are;
Diabetic retinopathy – increased levels of glucose in the bloodstream cause tiny capillaries or blood vessels in the back of the eye to leak fluid under the retina. This in turn leads to enlargement of the retina and leads to blurred vision. This is the best case scenario because it is also possible for an individual to develop new, abnormal capillaries that are prone to leaking into the center of the eye which could deteriorate your vision further and at a more severe rate.
Macular degeneration – wet or dry macular degeneration occurs when the center of the retina deteriorates and creates a blind spot in the middle of the visual field. Blurred vision or a blind spot in the center of your vision can be seen here.
Macular hole – this is often caused by aging or eye trauma and refers to a delicate defect in the center of the retina located at the back of the eye. A macular hole can also be caused by an eye injury.
Retinal tear – A retinal tear occurs when the jelly-like substance in the center of the eye causes enough traction at the back of the eye, causing a tear. Those with a retinal tear can get reflexes such as floaters or flashing lights.
Posterior vitreous detachment (PVD) – With age, dozens of vitreous detach from the retina, resulting in the formation of a PVD, and people over the age of 70 affect this condition. Although PVD does not cause complications for most people, those born with a sticky vitreous can cause the retina to withdraw in an unusual way, resulting in a retinal tear.
Retinal detachment – the formation of fluid under the retina is the main cause of eye disorders and is caused by a tear in the retina. Here, the fluid passes through the retinal tear, causing the retina to move away from the underlying tissue layer.
Epiretinal membrane – This is a soft tissue located at the top of the retina. Pulling this membrane can move the retina, resulting in blurred or distorted vision.
Retinitis pigmentosa – this is a genetic disease and slowly affects the retina. The condition can cause loss of peripheral or night vision over time.
A comprehensive eye exam will be able to identify problems with your retina or eye structure. Below are the tests that are used to diagnose a retinal problem and the extent of the disease.
Amsler grid test – This is used to test the clarity of your central vision. The extent of retinal damage can be diagnosed by observing the distortion that occurs with the retina.
Indocyanine green angiography – a dye is used here which can help see the blood vessels in the retina and the blood vessels underneath to determine damage.
Fundus fluorescence (FAF) – the test is used to diagnose the progression of an existing problem. The FAF test can highlight the pigment that is usually increased due to damage to the retina.
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) – This technique is used to take pictures of the retina. OCT can be used to identify macular holes, swelling, and age-related macular degeneration.
Treatments focus on stopping or slowing the progression of retinal disorders while improving your vision from the distortions. Depending on each case, each patient will be offered treatment. Our highly skilled specialists at New Vision Eye Center are always ready to treat urgent cases that often come with certain retinal disorders.
Types of treatment include laser or other techniques and surgical procedures such as photocoagulation, cryofixation, scleral torsion, and vitrectomy. Implantation, in severe cases, may require the capture of light rays that require optical configuration.
It is essential to diagnose the problem as soon as possible to minimize the effects of the condition. If you fall under the high-risk category, a regular eye visit is essential to ensure that your eyes and vision are safe and optimal. You can also get advice on prevention and the best ways to care for your eyes at the New Vision Eye Center. Our professionals are happy to serve all your concerns.
