Your retina is located at the back of your eye, and unless it is causing you problems, it is not likely to be given a second thought. The retina serves its individual purpose in the overall scheme of your eyesight, accepting light from the cornea in front and turning it into an image that you can see. Inside the retina, at its center, is the macula. Most people are surprised at just how many ailments are linked to the retina. And our Laurel retina specialist manages them all. Among them are retinal tears and detachments, macular degeneration (both age-related and myopic), retinopathy (sickle cell, diabetic, and Central serous), ocular trauma, retinitis, and uveitis. Our Laurel retina specialist also treats eye cancers, including choroidal melanoma, choroidal metastasis, intraocular lymphoma, conjunctival melanoma, retinoblastoma and retinocytoma. The list of possible symptoms that can indicate a retinal issue are extensive, but in general you should come in if you notice any problem with your vision (floaters, blurry vision, etc.) or there are any unusual indications that you are experiencing. With our diagnostic tools, determining the cause will not be difficult. And that will point in the direction of the applicable treatment.
