Anaheim Eye Retina
What is the Retina?
The retina is a thin yet extraordinarily complex layer of tissue lining the back portion of the eye. The retina contains photoreceptor cells and other specialized nerve cells that convert the image that you see into a signal that is recognized by the brain. Retinal injury or disease directly affects the quality of vision and can occur by due to retinal detachment, aging, infection, cancer, diabetes, macular degeneration and cardiovascular disease and elevated pressure within the eye.
Our Anaheim Eye Institute Retina specialists focus on delivering the best treatment for issues that arise from disease, accidents and age-related conditions. Lasers are frequently used to treat retinal tears and to reduce leakage from retinal blood vessels. We also perform surgeries to treat ocular trauma, retinal detachment, vitreous hemorrhage, macular hole, scar tissue on the retina, and other related disorders.
Anaheim Eye Institute employs the most state of the art technology including High Definition OCT, Fluorescein Angiography, and Retinal Photographic analysis to monitor and treat macular degeneration. Treatment includes use of appropriate sunglasses outdoors, smoking cessation, use of an AREDS approved eye vitamin, and low vision aids
Eye floaters appear as small spots that drift through your field of vision. They may stand out when you look at something bright, like white paper or a blue sky.
Diabetic retinopathy refers to damage to the retina due elevated blood sugar levels. Diabetes manifests most dangerously in the eyes by causing bleeding at the level of the retina.
Macular Degeneration is the most common cause of central vision loss in the elderly. The “macula” refers to the central portion of the retina, the inner layer of the eye.
