What are Retinal Diseases?
The retina acts like a film or digital card placed inside a camera. To create sharp images, the retina needs proper nourishment and remain attached to form images and send them as electric signals to the brain.
Vitreous, a clear, jelly-like substance gets filled in our eyes. When this jelly-like substance starts to liquefy, it separates from our retina, causing blurry vision. If left untreated, retinal detachments can cause loss of vision or total blindness.
In diabetic patients, the cells have difficulty using and storing sugar. The high blood sugar damages the blood vessels in the eye and severely affect your vision.

Age Related Macular Degeneration
AMD is a condition in which the central part of retina , called Macula, gets damaged. This affects your central vision which is needed for reading, writing, driving, recognising people’s faces and doing other fine tasks.
Retina is a highly sensitive thin tissue that lines the innermost part of the eye. It is this tissue that gives us our vision and is the part you are using now to read this note.
Lattice degeneration is a disease which affects the retina of the eye, causing the retina to atrophy and become thinner. Lattice degeneration may lead to retinal detachment and temporary or permanent loss of vision.
A detached retina is a serious and sight-threatening event, occurring when the retina becomes separated from its underlying supportive tissue. The retina cannot function when these layers are detached. And unless the retina is reattached soon, permanent vision loss may result.
Retinal Vein Occlusion
Retinal vein occlusion is a blockage in one of the veins of the retina. There is a main retinal vein as well as its branch veins that supply blood and oxygen to different areas of the retina. Blockages can affect any of them.
