Retina - Know your treatment options

Retinal disorders refer to a group of diseases that affect any part of the retina. The retina is a thin tissue covering the inner back wall of the eye. It is important because it is made up of several light-sensitive cells that are responsible for receiving, reading and sending visual information to the brain via the optic nerve. Retinal disorders include retinal tear, diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachment, macular hole, epiretinal membrane, retinitis pigmentosa and macular degeneration. Surgery can likely help treat retinal holes or tears.
