Laurel Retina Tear

Laurel Retina Tear

The Retina Group of Washington is a group of excellent doctors who provide the latest in groundbreaking retinal care. If you or a loved one is suffering from a Laurel retina tear. Treating retinal tears is something we do at our offices for patients who need quality immediate care.

A routine vision test may not show a Laurel retina tear. Our doctors are able to view a retinal tear using a special procedure and an ophthalmoscopy, allowing us to see the back of the eye. An ultrasound can also detect a retinal tear. This condition is considered to be an emergency. Warning signs of retinal detachment include the sudden appearance of floaters, flashes of light and reduced vision. Bleeding may also be present because of the blood vessels in the eye being affected by the tear. Patients who are suspected to have a retinal tear should be seen immediately and should receive treatment before vision loss potentially occurs.

Besides a Laurel retina tear we also treat retinal detachment.. Floaters or flashes of light should be reported to your doctor immediately, because they may signal a retinal tear. For more information, visit our website to learn about our doctors and locations.

Why would you need a retinal exam, and what does it entail? It is recommended that adults have yearly eye exams done by a qualified eye doctor, but here at The Retina Group of Washington, we’re specialists among specialists. Our goal is to pay close attention to the wellness of your retinas, and by consequence your eyes and your vision in general.

Your retina is the part of your eye at the back. It receives light from the cornea, and turns it into a viewable image. Among the problems that can occur and lead to problems with your retina are diseases such as diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration, along with the tearing or detachment of the retina for the rest of your eye. Each condition has a specific set of symptoms that are related to it, but it’s also true that some generalized signs are common for all retinal problems. So if you’re wondering when you should come in for our Laurel retina exam, the answer is when you experience indications such as floaters (spots that appear in your field of vision), blurry vision, loss of either central vision or peripheral vision, straight lines that appear to be wavy, and difficulties perceiving among colors. Our office is fully equipped with diagnostics that make it simple and accurate to determine if you are suffering from a retinal condition of any type. It goes without saying that being proactive is likely to bring about the best possible results, so don’t hesitate to get our Laurel retina exam.
