People with high blood pressure or other diseases affecting the arteries are more likely to develop retinal vascular disease, which includes different disorders affecting the blood vessels or arteries inside the eye. Similar to vascular disease that causes blood clots in other parts of the body, retinal vascular disease can lead to clots inside the eye.
When cells inside the retina (the light sensitive tissue at the back of your eye) begin to die, the process is known as retinal degeneration, including Retinitis Pigmentosa and Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD). This can result from several causes, including genetic disorders, aging, and can lead to blindness.
A retinal detachment is a separation of the retina from the underlying layers of the eye wall.
Macular degeneration affects people age 50 years and older and is associated with central vision loss.
Diabetic retinopathy is caused by the elevated blood sugar damaging the small blood vessels in the retina.
Retianl vein occlusion is a blockage in tbe blood vessel of your eye that can result in sight loss.
Treatment options for retinal disease range from surgical interventions to injections of air, gas or liquid into the eye. Your exact course of treatment depends on your specific diagnosis and your symptoms
