Eye Disorders > Retinal disorders

A healthy retina is essential for vision because retinal specialized photoreceptors, cones and rods, convert light stimuli into electrical impulses, transmitted through the optic nerve to the brain, where the processing and perception of the visual image happens.

Many serious pathologies can affect the retina such as:

-    Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) that causes progressive damage to the macula, the central and most vital area of the retina, leading to the gradual loss of central vision.

-    Diabetic Retinopathy (DRP): the main and most common ocular complication of diabetes. DRP is characterized by lesions affecting the retinal capillaries in patients suffering from both type 1 or type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (DM). It can cause blindness if left undiagnosed and untreated.

-    Diabetic Macular Edema (DME) is one of the major complications of Diabetes, together with DRP, and if untreated can seriously hinder central vision. The chances to develop DME increase together with the length and severity of Diabetes: around 30% of patients suffering from DM for more than 20 years develop DME.
