Your retinas are key parts of your eyes, without which you would not experience good vision. They are susceptible to disease, such as diabetic retinopathy and age-related macular degeneration, as well to physical damage, like when your retina become torn or detached. At the Retina Group of Washington, depending on us makes perfect sense because we are experienced specialists who have the expertise and the cutting edge diagnostics to reach quick and accurate diagnoses.
A complete eye exam is recommended for all adults once per year. In addition to those conditions that affect your retinas, there are other common eye diseases, including glaucoma and cataracts, that form and progress through their early stages without any obvious signs. Our retinal testing in Woodbridge as an annual ritual allows our ophthalmologist to detect eye disease before it has the chance to cause consequences that might not be reversible. Furthermore, if you do experience any symptoms that are associated with either eye disease or a damaged retina, you should not wait to come in for our retina testing in Woodbridge. Timely attention is closely linked to the best outcomes. General symptoms that are related to the retina include, but are not limited to, floaters (spots in your field of vision), blurry vision, difficulties with color perception, loss of vision to any degree, straight lines appearing wavy, and loss of central vision. Our retina testing in Woodbridge is based on the the state-of-the-art when it comes to equipment, such as digital photos of your retina. And, of course, the more precise the diagnosis is, the easier it will be to identify and implement the proper treatment, and the greater likelihood that treatment will be effective.
Whether you have reason to based on symptoms, or you would like to have the peace of mind provided by yearly screening, please call our office to schedule or retina testing in Woodbridge.
