The retina is the inner shell of the eye, which plays a central role in forming the image that the brain will receive. Various diseases affect the eye retina and can lead to blindness. Therefore, the possibility of therapeutic, surgical or laser treatment can be decided only after a complete ophthalmological examination and consultation with a qualified doctor.

The retina is the inner membrane of the eye, consisting of millions of light-sensitive cells. It transforms light into nerve signals and helps us to see the picture. The optic nerve, vascular bundles, and the macula are in the retina's central region. The macula is the most crucial part of the retina, which helps us see in bright daylight and is "responsible" for high visual acuity.

The most frequent causes of problems with the retina are blood supply disorders. However, retinal diseases include many conditions:

  • Retinoschisis is the inner membrane separation from the middle (choroid).
  • Dystrophy is often the cause of physiological changes in the elderly who suffer from myopia. Ophthalmologists distinguish between tapetoretinal and hereditary retinal dystrophy.
  • Macular dystrophy develops against the background of damage to the retina and central vision.
  • Diabetic retinopathy occurs in 90% of people with diabetes.
  • The rupture of the retina violates its integrity, which can be caused by trauma or surgery.

A large group consists of inflammatory diseases of the retina and its components: chorioretinitis, choroiditis, retinitis, retinochoroiditis, and chorioretinal.

Different types of angiopathy (vascular problems) affect the retina: retinal vascular, transient retinal artery, central retinal artery and vein occlusions, microaneurysms, neovascularization, perivasculitis, and vasculitis.

Without treatment, any diseases of the retina lead to an irreversible condition - tears and detachment. It leads to complete vision loss without the possibility of its restoration. That is why early detection of retinal disorders is so important when the visual system has not yet been irreparably damaged.

A laser optical scanning tomograph allows doctors to get an idea of ​​the structure of the retina throughout its depth and even measure the thickness of its layers. In addition, retinal angiography helps to diagnose changes in retinal vessels.

Depending on the type of disorder, ophthalmologists provide laser or surgical treatment. For example, retinopathy treatment consists of laser coagulation or cryopexy (freezing). However, for some retinal diseases, drug injections might be the option.
