CONDITIONS WE TREAT
RETINAL DETACHMENT

Your retina is the light-sensitive tissue on the inner surface of your eye. Light that enters your eye lands on your retina and sends visual messages to your brain through the optic nerve.
Retinal detachment occurs when the retina becomes separated from the pigmented cell layer that nourishes it. The condition may start as a retinal tear and then detach completely. This can occur due to:
• Vitreous gel inside the eye shrinking and contracting, pulling on the retina
• Fluid getting underneath the retina due to retinal tears
• Trauma or injury to the eye that causes fluid to collect under the retina
• The contraction of scar tissue on the retina

Any sudden vision changes are always cause for concern. If you are experiencing any vision changes, regardless of how minor, contact us IMMEDALY.DIABETIC RETINOPATHY

Diabetic Retinopathy is a common form of diabetic eye disease that has the potential to cause vision loss and blindness. Type 1 and Type 2 diabetics are especially prone to eye disease.
Diabetic Retinopathy affects the blood vessels in the retina (the back of the eye). As these blood vessels become weak or damaged, they leak blood and fluid into the retinal tissue. Because the retina is responsible for converting light into signals that are sent to the brain, any damage to the retina will result in vision problems.
Stages of Diabetic Retinopathy
In the early stages of diabetic retinopathy, the retinal blood vessels will begin to swell and leak fluid in small areas. Left undetected, those blood vessels will eventually distort and close, preventing blood from flowing freely. In order to compensate for this lack of blood flow, abnormal blood vessels will actually grow on the inside surface of the retina. These newly formed blood vessels will be fragile and will not supply the retina with the blood flow necessary for healthy vision. They may cause bleeding and scar tissue to form.
Symptoms of Diabetic Retinopathy
Because this disease typically starts slow, there are usually no symptoms in the early stages. By the time it starts to impact your vision, the disease will be in a later stage of development. Regular eye exams are critical to detecting this disease early so treatment can be administered and vision preserved. If you are diabetic and are experiencing any of the following symptoms, contact our diabetic eye doctors immediately:
Dark spots
Floaters or strings in vision
Vision loss
Blurry vision
Changes in color perception
