When to See a Retina Specialist

The retina is one of the most important parts of the human eye. This layer tiny blood vessels at the back inner wall of the eye is responsible for making vision possible. Because of its importance, the field of retina care has changed greatly over the past two decades and continues to evolve very rapidly to better serve patients.

Optometrists do not typically provide treatment for retinal diseases. General ophthalmologists may choose to provide treatment for some conditions, but more complex retinal cases need the expertise of dedicated specialists, such as the professionals at Retina Group of Washington – Maryland – Annapolis. We are experts in treating conditions of the retina, helping to maintain the best possible vision for each of our patients.

Retinal specialists treat a wide range of serious, vision-threatening conditions such as:
• Diabetic retinopathy
• Macular degeneration
• Retinal tears/detachments
• Vascular diseases of the retina
• Serious eye injuries
• Eye tumors
• Problems/complications following surgery performed by general ophthalmologists (most commonly cataract surgery)

Depending on the condition, retinal specialists will treat patients with one or a combination of therapies — such as laser treatment, injection medications into the eye, and/or surgical procedures. While treatments will vary based on each patient’s unique characteristics, the large majority of procedures can be performed on an outpatient basis, either in the office or a hospital setting.

Most patients who are seen by retinal specialists are referred by an optometrist or a general ophthalmologist. In some cases where patients have a pre-existing retinal condition, they may seek out retina specialists directly. Typically, retinal treatments are coordinated with the patient’s primary eye care provider and primary care physician.
