Treating eye diseases of the retina.
The retina is one of the most important structures of our visual system. The retina is a light-sensitive tissue lining the inner surface of the back of the eye. The retina serves a similar function to the film in a camera. The optics of the eye create an image of the visual world on the retina. Light striking the retina initiates a cascade of chemical and electrical events that trigger nerve impulses. The photoreceptor cells, the rods and cones, are involved in this complex process. The retinal impulses are then carried through the optic nerve to the brain.
There are many diseases of the retina, which can affect eyesight. Some common diseases such as diabetes and hypertension can directly affect the retina and cause poor functioning of the retinal cells. Other common retinal disease processes include macular degeneration and retinal detachments. All of these retinal diseases can result in significant loss of vision.
