Optometric Images is located in the Dublin and Tri-Valley areas. Our specialists and team members have extensive experience in the eye health field. This includes the diagnosis and treatment of retina disease, which can be treated with a variety of proven techniques such as laser surgery and optical coherence tomography. The retina is a thin layer of tissue on the inside and back walls of the eye. Whether our patients report symptoms of blurred vision, headaches, or severe pain, an optometrist at our local Dublin and Tri-Valley area office is prepared to help patients by using our essential services and expertise in optometry.
Retinal Tears and Detachment
Retinal detachment and retinal tears are potentially blinding conditions that occur when the retina is torn or separates from the rest of the eye. Treatment involves adding scar tissue to prevent moisture from continuing to enter the retinal area. Because our patients are our top concern, we don’t want them feeling pain and shock associated with retinal tears and detachment.
Our central vision helps us focus on the text in books and fine details on the road while driving. It also allows us to pay precise attention to job functions. The epiretinal membrane refers to scar tissue that forms over the eye’s macula. Some of our patients distorted and blurred vision after developing an epiretinal membrane.
Retinal inflammation is often caused by other diseases. The condition is also known to cause swelling and permanent damage to the retina. Other diseases we treat include:
- Retinal pigmentation
- Diabetic retinopathy
- Macular degeneration
Treating Retinal Disease
There are many ways our optometrist treats retinal diseases. Retinal disease treatment isn’t as invasive as it was many years ago. Therefore, we hope to guide our patients through the process to relieve any anxiety before treatment. Potential treatment options include:
- Laser surgery for repairing damage to the retina
- Shrinking of abnormal blood vessels
- Freezing of the retina
We will assess your condition to determine the extent of your retinal damage before recommending any of the aforementioned techniques. When our patients come to Optometric Images, we want them to feel safe and secure about the future of their eye health.
