Many people don’t seek out care for their eyes in general, let alone their retinas, unless there is a problem. The retain serves an essential role in your vision and while you may not give it much thought, when something goes wrong with it, don’t trust your well-being to a regular eye doctor. At The Retina Group of Washington, this is what we do, day in and day out, for more than forty years. Among the conditions that may cause you to need our attention are age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, complications related to cataracts, or a torn or detached retina.
We are pleased to offer cutting-edge diagnostic testing, meaning that you can be confident of an accurate and precise conclusion on which your treatment will be based. In addition, screenings for common eye diseases should be done on an annual basis by our retina care in Falls Church. There are no obvious indications until those conditions reach an advanced stage, and by then the risk of permanent vision loss and/or harm to your eyes is much higher. Of course, it’s usually not possible to anticipate a retinal tear or detachment. In those cases, the appearance of certain basic symptoms will most likely be what alerts you to needing help. What is the nature of that help? Our retina care in Falls Church may include medication, either oral or topical, and when surgery is a necessity or simply the best option for achieving the desired result, we do it either at our office, or in a local hospital. Fortunately, the vast majority of them are outpatient, and because you are in expert hands, you can breathe a sigh of relief. Success rates are typically high.
