Retinal disease treatment

The retina is made up of multiple layers of nervous cells lining the back of the eye (also referred to as the ocular fundus). These sensitive cells are responsible for transforming light into an electrical signal and transmitting this current to the visual area of the brain to be decoded. This is a very active structure of the eye that requires efficient metabolism and adequate blood flow. Several conditions can compromise the integrity of the retina, including age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) and diabetic retinopathy (DR). The aim of all retinal treatments is primarily to stabilize the patient’s condition and avoid further damage. Imaging devices, such as an optical coherence tomograph (OCT), can be extremely useful in these cases as they allow accurate monitoring of the progression of retinal diseases.
