The retina is integral to your eyesight, and there are plenty of different eye conditions and diseases that can affect this part of the eye’s overall makeup. If retinal issues are not properly monitored, diagnosed or treated then your vision may be in danger. When it comes to eye diseases, the sooner they are caught the sooner they can be treated, and the sooner they can be treated the more likely your vision can stay healthy. There are plenty of retinal diseases and even injuries and related conditions that can affect adults, some of which include age related macular or myopic degeneration, retinal detachments and tears, diabetic retinopathy, sickle cell retinopathy, central serious retinopathy, macular holes, pucker or edemas, ocular trauma, cataracts, intraocular infections, uveitis, retinal vascular occlusive disease, and much more.
