Areas of Focus
The macula is the central portion of the retina, the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye that helps our brain form images. When this area of the eye becomes damaged, the vision directly in front of you may appear dark or distorted. The effects of this primarily age-related condition can be managed with laser therapies and other methods.
Type 2 diabetes affects blood vessels throughout the body, including the retinas. As these blood vessels become damaged, new, abnormal blood vessels grow which are particularly delicate and prone to rupture. In its earliest stages patients may not experience any symptoms, but as the condition develops, they may have blurred vision or dark, floating spots or streaks.
The symptoms of diabetic detachment can become noticeable and worsen quickly. Signs include blurred sight and a sudden increase in flashes and floaters. Retinal detachment is often caused by eye injuries. Diabetics are at a higher risk, and there is a genetic component. We offer advanced retina surgery to quickly and safely restore your health.
