Eye health tends to go overlooked, but it is essential that you see an eye doctor regularly and that you have any suspicious symptoms looked at as soon as they develop. Eye problems and other issues can quickly and easily lead to vision damage or vision loss, so receiving the proper care as soon as possible is absolutely essential. Here at The Retina Group of Washington our Stafford ophthalmologist can provide you with the care you need in the event that something happens, including issues involving your retina. Here at our offices, you can receive the best care around for any retinal issue, including if you need retina surgery.
Retinal conditions have the potential to damage your eyesight, especially since the retina is partially responsible for vision. The retina is a section of light-sensitive tissue located at the back of the eye. Light travels through the eye and when it reaches the retina, it is translated into signals that your brain can understand as images. If your retina is damaged in any way, then so will your vision be. There are several conditions that can affect the retina, including retinal tears and detachment. In these cases, retinal surgery is required to restore eyesight and repair the retina itself. If these injuries or instances are not taken care of right away, you may end up suffering from permanent damage or complete vision loss. Here at The Retina Group of Washington, our Stafford ophthalmologist can take a look at your eyes, especially if you are experiencing any symptoms, and can provide you with the proper care depending on your specific needs.
There are different approaches to retina surgery, though choosing the proper form will be up to your ophthalmologist or surgeon, and it may also depend on your specific medical case and other factors that are affecting you.
