The retina is the structure of the eye that is responsible for transforming light into images and, as a result, plays an essential role in vision, in interpreting reality and in general quality of life. This is one of the two reasons why it is so important to regularly visit an ophthalmology centre for a check-up. The other is its vulnerability. At the end of the day, many diseases might harm retinal health, some of which are serious and could lead to irreversible damage and total vision loss. Its specialist care is key.
Diseases affecting the retina
Age-related macular degeneration is one of the most frequent retinal diseases and, among other symptoms, causes a loss of central vision, blurred vision and the constant observation of wavy or twisted lines. Diabetic retinopathy, macular hole, retinal detachment or myodesopsia, also known as floaters, are some of the other more common retinal conditions. Each one of these has its own risk factors. Having an expert check-up and following the personalised treatments indicated can help relieve and even get rid of the symptoms.
