The thin membrane at the back of the eye that is necessary for good vision is known as the retina. There are a number of reasons such as age or disease that can affect the functioning of the retina. This could cause blurred or loss of vision, redness, pain and discharge.
HOW IS RETINAL PROBLEMS DIAGNOSED?
The doctor may use the following tests, instruments and procedures to diagnose retinal detachment:
• Retinal examination. The doctor may use an instrument with a bright light and a special lens (ophthalmoscope) to examine the back of the eye, including the retina. The ophthalmoscope provides a highly detailed view, allowing the doctor to see any retinal holes, tears or detachments.
• Ultrasound imaging. The doctor may use this test if bleeding has occurred in the eye, making it difficult to see the retina.
HOW IS RETINAL PROBLEMS TREATED?
Depending on the cause of the retinal problem eye drops to wash out the eye or antibiotics for infections would be prescribed. In severe cases surgery would be needed such as to repair tears in the retina or retinal detachment.
DID YOU KNOW?
The Retinal Problems can get very chronic in nature, leading to loss of vision if not treated on time.
