Title: What Are The Types And Symptoms of Retinal Diseases

(No Transcript)
  • The human eye is the most sensitive organ in the
    body. The retina is a light-sensing tissue that
    resides at the back of our eyes. The retina is
    responsible for creating images and conveying
    them to our brain. An unhealthy retina can make
    your reading, writing, and driving a lot
  • A retinal disease affects the light-sensing
    tissue and disrupts our vision. Lack of proper
    care and treatment can also result in partial or
    complete loss of sight. There are several types
    of retinal diseases caused due to ageing,
    diabetes, and other health factors. Early
    diagnosis and regular eye check-ups can help
    prevent the disease with effective treatment and
    protect your vision.
  • In this blog, we will discuss some of the common
    retinal diseases and their symptoms.

  • Floaters
  • Floaters can be the result of a torn retina
    tissue. The symptoms include black spots in your
    vision. It generally occurs as an ageing effect
    but can also happen to patients suffering from
    severe near-sightedness. Our eyes are made up of
    jelly substance, which becomes more liquid, and
    clumps cast a shadow on the retina. If the proper
    diagnosis is delayed, the fluid accumulates
    behind the retina and can lead to retinal
  • Macular Degeneration
  • It is an age-related condition, and if left
    untreated, it can cause central vision loss.
    Macular degeneration is more common in patients
    above the age of 55. The symptoms include
  • Blurry eye vision
  • Warped straight lines
  • Difficulty focusing on one fine detail
  • Blind spots

  • Good news is, there are treatments available to
    cure macular degeneration. The treatment includes
    an antioxidant supplement, which eases the
    symptoms and blocks the development of unhealthy
    blood vessels.
  • Diabetic Retinopathy
  • A diabetic patient is at higher risk of
    developing the retinal disease. Some of the most
    common symptoms of diabetic retinopathy are
  • Blurry vision
  • Double vision
  • Floaters
  • Blind spots
  • Pain in at least one eye
  • Face difficulty with peripheral vision
  • Flashing lights
  • Car headlights and rings

  • Laser eye surgery is one effective Retina
    Specialist in Mumbai, at Samarth Eye Care Clinic.
    Diabetic patients are also at a higher risk of
    developing glaucoma and cataracts. We ensure the
    patients recover from diabetic eye disease and
    reclaim their sharp, active vision.
  • Retinal Detachment
  • As mentioned earlier, retinal detachment occurs
    when the jelly-like fluid accumulates at the back
    of the retina and causes separation. Also, other
    factors might increase the risk of causing
    retinal detachment, such as
  • Extreme near-sightedness
  • Previous retinal detachment in one eye
  • Genetic predisposition
  • Previous cataract surgery
  • Accidental eye injury or trauma
  • Previous eye disorder

  • Retinal detachment can also occur due to the
    presence of floaters. Delay in treatment can
    result in partial or complete vision loss. If you
    are noticing floaters in your vision, consult the
    best retina specialist in Mumbai at Samarth Eye
    Care Clinic.
  • Retinitis Pigmentosa
  • Retinitis Pigmentosa refers to a genetic
    condition which may lead to retinal detachment.
    There are many retinal diseases classified under
    Retinitis Pigmentosa, such as
  • Lebers congenital amaurosis
  • Usher syndrome
  • Bardet-Biedel syndrome
  • Rod-cone syndrome
  • Refsum disease

  • One of the earliest symptoms of this syndrome is
    night blindness. But, many people also complain
    to suffer from central vision loss and colour
    blindness. Since it is a genetic condition,
    adults and adolescents are at higher risk of
    developing such eye diseases.
