Conditions We Treat
Nevada Retina Associates offers cutting edge treatment for patients with macular degeneration. This condition is the most common cause of central visual loss in individuals over age 60 in the United States.
Retinal Tears and Detachment
Retinal detachment usually occurs secondary to a tear in the retina, which allows fluid to flow underneath the retina and “detach the wallpaper” (the retina) from the eye wall.
The most common cause of visual loss in people under the age of 60 in the United States is diabetes. Diabetes most often causes visual loss by causing leakage from the blood vessels in the macula, causing macular edema.
Retinal Vascular Diseases
In the proliferative phase of diabetic retinopathy, new blood vessels grow from the retina anteriorly into the vitreous gel. This is a more serious phase of diabetic retinal disease as these blood vessels can cause significant bleeding within the eye, retinal detachment, and severe glaucoma.
