Your retina is located at the back of your eye. It is a thin, light-sensitive tissue that is responsible for controlling how you see images. In a healthy eye, images focus on the retina and those images are converted into electrical impulses that are transmitted through the optic nerve to the brain. Damage to the retina can result in blurry vision, spots in vision, decreased central vision and even blindness.  

Types of Retinal Diseases

There are many different types of retinal diseases including, but not limited to:

  • Macular degeneration
  • Retinal detachment
  • Retinal tears
  • Diabetic retinopathy
  • Retinal vein occlusion
  • Macular edema
  • Macular hole
  • Macular pucker

At Schein Ernst Mishra Eye our Harrisburg skilled eye doctors will evaluate your retina and may refer you to a local retinal specialist if treatment is recommended. The treatment will depend on which part of the retina is affected, how severe the problem is and what is causing the problem. A comprehensive dilated eye exam will help your doctor diagnose the issue and recommend treatment options.

If you are experiencing any vision problems, don’t wait until your vision is permanently lost. Contact us today to schedule an eye exam.
