retinal diseases overview

Retinal diseases specifically affect the retina- a layer of light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye that is responsible for vision. Retinal diseases can be associated with diabetes, trauma to the eye, or family history. People with retinal diseases experience an array of symptoms, from specks floating in their vision to blurred or lost vision. Many types of retinal diseases share common symptoms and treatments, but each has unique characteristics. To make a diagnosis it is important to see your eye care provider for a thorough eye examination.
