At Milwaukee Eye Care we offer advanced treatment options for retinal problems. The retina plays an extremely vital role in vision. The retinal is responsible for receiving light and converting it into signals for the brain to interpret. Any damage or disease to the retina will result in visual problems, even permanent blindness. Risk factors for retinal diseases might include aging, having diabetes or other diseases, eye trauma, and a family history of retinal diseases.
Having a regular eye exam can help identify any retinal problems at the earliest stage so appropriate treatment can be administered.
It’s important to pay attention to any changes in your vision and find care quickly. Seek immediate medical attention if you suddenly have floaters, flashes or reduced vision. These are warning signs of potentially serious retinal disease.
