Laser Therapy Effectively Treats Some Eye Conditions

It literally allows you to see the light! The portion of the eye known as the retina plays a critical role in your ability to see, as it converts light into nerve signals that are then sent to the brain, giving you vision. Like all parts of the body, the retina is subject to disease. At the offices of Retina Group of Washington – Virginia – Woodbridge, our team of highly-skilled eye specialists is well equipped to diagnose and treat conditions of the retina, helping to restore healthy vision for our patients.

Retinal diseases vary widely, but most of them cause symptoms and can affect any part of the eye. They share some common signs and symptoms, such as seeing “floaters,” “cobwebs” or flashes of light in your field of vision, or having blurry, distorted or even or reduced vision. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s important to see prompt medical attention.

A non-invasive procedure known as laser photocoagulation is usually the first line of treatment for common retinal conditions, such as retinal tears, retinal detachments, and age-related macular degeneration (where the center of the retina begins to deteriorate). During this relatively painless procedure, we focus a laser over the affected area that emits a beam of light that travels through the eye. The heat works to seal the tear or destroy any abnormal blood cells.

We certainly understand the gravity of contemplating eye surgery. Not only are we at The Retina Group of Washington experienced specialists, but also acknowledged leaders in field. For any form of retinal surgery, no matter what the circumstances, turn to us.

The most common reasons for having our retina surgery in Woodbridge are to repair a torn or detached retina, or for the treatment of common retinal diseases such as diabetic retinopathy and age-related macular degeneration. The goals may vary, but your vision is nearly always at risk to one degree or other, and that makes it an extremely serious matter. You’ll come in for a consultation and examination, during which our retinal specialist will conduct the necessary tests to determine both the exact problem you are suffering with, and the severity of it. Your options, if any, are then discussed. There may be some cases where only one plan of action is applicable. Please be aware that our retina surgery in Woodbridge always represents the most advanced, safe, and successful procedure for your unique circumstances, and they are all performed either at our office or in a local hospital where we have privileges. Surgery is done on an outpatient basis, meaning you won’t have to stay overnight. Chances for complications are minimized to the greatest extent possible.
