How to Tell if You Need to See an Ophthalmologist
The retina is an extremely complex part of the eye, and it plays an instrumental role in our vision. It lines the back of the eye and functions similar to film in a camera. The retina breaks down countless elements, including brightness, color, and movement, and converts them into electrical signals that are transmitted to the brain.
There are many factors that can contribute to the development of retinal problems, including diabetes, aging, high blood pressure, inherited disease, and trauma. While retinal disease may present no outward signs, these are symptoms that warrant an immediate visit to your eye doctor:
- Sudden appearance of floaters or flashes
- Blurred vision or vision loss
- Dark spot in the center of your vision
- A shadow over part of your vision
- Poor night vision
- Dark streaks that block your vision
Early diagnosis means early treatment, which is the best way to preserve your vision and reduce severe complications that can occur with retinal disorders.
Your ophthalmologist will begin your examination with a thorough health history assessment and eye exam using state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment. The board-certified eye surgeons at Philadelphia Retina Associates can diagnose retinal problems at the earliest stages – even when you are experiencing no obvious signs or symptoms.
