Retina Care and Retinal Disease InformationWhat is Retina?

The retina is a light-sensitive tissue that lines the inner surface of the eye. The retina has layers of neurons, called photoreceptor cells that are interconnected by synapses.

Diagnosing Retina

When the light passes through the cornea, it strikes the retina, and this creates a chemical and electrical trigger of nerve impulses. These impulses are sent to the brain through the fiber of optic nerves and thus creates an image for us. When the retina is damaged, it can result in a loss of vision. You may also experience flashes and floaters as a result of retinal issues.

Treating Retinal Disease

Regular eye exams are important in diagnosing, treating, and managing retinal diseases. If you’re experiencing retina issues or symptoms of a damaged retina, schedule an appointment at the Cleveland Eye Clinic for an exam. Our Eye Doctors will help you take the next steps towards finding the right eye care treatment for you.
