What are retinal diseases?

The retina is a thin membrane that lines the bottom of the eyeball. It is essential to vision. It contains a multitude of cells that receive and analyze light signals before transmitting them to the brain via the optic nerve.

An alteration of the retina can lead to its dysfunction and can lead to a clear decrease in vision, which can occur suddenly or more gradually.

Retinal diseases are one of the main causes of visual impairment. They must be treated as soon as the first symptoms appear to avoid the development of symptoms and, eventually, blindness.

The various diseases that affect the retina can have various origins: aging at the origin of most of them but they can also be linked to a hereditary factor or be part of the complications of another disease such as diabetes, for example.

How does it work?

A multitude of symptoms can alert you to the possible presence of retinal disease. These include decreased visual acuity, image distortion, the appearance of spots or haze in your field of vision, floating bodies or flashes of light, among others.

The diagnosis of retinal diseases is usually made by your ophthalmologist using conventional or advanced examination techniques.

In addition to a simple visual acuity measurement, a fundus may be performed to directly observe the retina. A tomography of the eye as well as an angiography can also be performed.

Retinal diseases are managed differently depending on their cause. Most often, treatment is used to delay retinal disease or to block its proliferation. In some cases, laser treatment may be necessary to prevent the development of the disease.

Retinal diseases

Retinal diseases summarized in a few steps

An initial consultation allows us to perform the necessary examinations and make a diagnosis.

This first consultation allows us to screen and diagnose retinal disease through a complete examination of the patient’s ocular health.

Eye measurements are taken to detect any type of optical defect. Additional examinations are then performed depending on the suspected pathology: retinography, OCT, OCT-angiography, among others.

A summary of the examinations performed is then made by the specialist after having analyzed all the data collected.

It is at this point that he can give a precise diagnosis and prescribe the most appropriate treatment for the patient’s pathology.

A follow-up appointment may be proposed by the specialist to monitor the evolution of the retinal disease.
