Retina Diseases

Your retina is located at the back of your eye. Although it is a thin, light-sensitive tissue, it packs a punch: it is responsible for controlling how you see images. In an ideal eye, images focus on the retina and those images are converted into electrical impulses that are transmitted through the optic nerve to the brain. It makes sense, then, that any damage to the retina will result in vision problems ranging from blurriness to spots to decreased central vision and even blindness. 

Types of Retinal Diseases

There are many different types of retinal diseases including, but not limited to: 

  • Macular Degeneration
  • Detached and Torn Retina
  • Diabetic Retinopathy
  • Geographic Atrophy
  • Central Serous Retinopathy
  • Macular Edema
  • Macular Puckers

Our Southeast Idaho retinal specialists offer treatment for retinal diseases. The treatment will depend on which part of the retina is affected, how severe the problem is, and what is causing the problem. A comprehensive dilated eye exam will help your doctor diagnose the issue and recommend treatment options. 

If you are experiencing any vision problems, don’t wait until your vision is permanently lost. Contact us today to schedule an eye exam in Idaho Falls.
