The retina forms the inner lining of nerve tissue in the back of the eye that senses light rays needed to focus and send images to the brain through the optic nerve. In the center of this nerve tissue is the macula, which is responsible for providing the sharp central vision needed for reading, driving and seeing fine detail. Many retinal disorders affect the macula, and in turn affect your vision. A healthy retina is essential to maintaining clear vision and overall eye functioning. At Barry Edison Ophthalmology, we provide our patients with preventative services and comprehensive treatment for a wide range of retinal conditions such as macular degeneration, diabetic complications, retinal detachment, and others.
