Retinal disorders affect the tissue in the back of your eye that senses light and sends images.
What are retinal disorders?
Examples of retinal disorders include:
- Macular degeneration – a disease that destroys your sharp, central vision
- Diabetic eye disease – diabetes complications that affect the eyes
- Retinal detachment – a medical emergency, when the retina is pulled away from the back of the eye
- Macular pucker – scar tissue on the macula
- Macular hole – a small break in the macula that usually happens to people over 60
- Floaters – specks or “cobwebs” in your field of vision
