Retinal Diseases

Protect Your Vision

A healthy, intact retina is key to clear vision. Unfortunately, many people suffer from retinal diseases and don’t even realize it. Our ophthalmologists at Rock Hill Eye Center will examine your eyes and watch for any signs of these problems.

What Is the Retina?

The retina is the light-sensitive tissue that lines the back of the eyes. Light rays are focused on the retina through the cornea, pupil, and lens. The retina converts the light rays into impulses that travel through the optic nerve to our brain, where they are interpreted as the images we see.

Common Retinal Diseases

Just because retinal diseases are common doesn’t mean they aren’t damaging to your eyesight. Our ophthalmologists will evaluate your eye health along with your overall physical well-being as they diagnose and monitor these conditions.

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy is an eye condition that occurs in people with diabetes. This retinal disease affects the blood vessels in the eye and can cause permanent vision loss. If you have diabetes, be aware of this condition and be sure to visit an ophthalmologist for care.

Age Related Degeneration

Macular degeneration is a breakdown of the part of your retina that controls your central vision. The most common cause of this retinal disease is aging. Learn about the two major types of macular degeneration and why seeing an ophthalmologist is so important.

Flashes and Floaters

Eye flashes and floaters can be distracting. But are they a sign of a more serious issue with your retinas? Our eye doctors can help rule out any more serious retinal diseases.

Retinal Tear / Detachment

Not all eye conditions require immediate treatment—but a torn or detached retina does. If you’ve suffered a blow to the eye, visit an ophthalmologist as quickly as possible for an exam. It could save your vision.
