Your retina is a key part of your eye, and without it functioning properly, you would not be able to see well or maybe at all. At The Retina Group of Washington, we’re your adult retina specialist for the diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment of disease and conditions related to the retina and its operation.
Not all eye diseases affect the retina, but the ones that do pose a serious danger to it. They include glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, and even cataracts, which though they primarily impact the cornea, can also have complications for your retina. Our retinal ophthalmology in Georgetown Washington DC features state-of-the-art diagnostics, which allow for the detection of problems at an earlier stage than was once possible. And many common eye conditions form and progress without revealing any obvious symptoms to alert you to their presence. That’s why it is essential to have equipment that can zero in on issues before they can lead to harming your retinas or resulting in vision loss either of which may not be reversible. Everyone should have a comprehensive eye exam annually. Our retinal ophthalmology in Georgetown Washington DC has treatment options, which range from the simple to the complex to the surgical. All of them are done with the expertise and experience that you would expect from us. While not every eye disease can be cured, they can usually be managed, and further damage prevented, especially when caught in a timely manner. Damage to your retina that occurs absent of disease, such as retinal tears and detachments, are also managed with retina surgery, which should be done promptly.
