ICON Eyecare Offers Specialized Retinal Treatment Near You

The retina is the part of the eye that senses light and translates images into signals sent to the brain. The eye’s lens focuses images onto the retina and then sends the image data to the brain via the optic nerve. When retinal degeneration occurs, seeing properly becomes difficult, if not impossible. ICON Eyecare provides a full range of medical eye services, including experienced retina treatment and correction.

ICON Eyecare uses the most advanced techniques and technologies to offer its patients the most effective and customized treatment plan available. Your ICON Eyecare doctor will work closely with you to ensure you fully understand what is affecting your vision and select the best treatment option for your particular circumstance.

  • Symptoms of Retina Disease

    Patients with retina-related issues often experience symptoms such as blurry or distorted vision and or dark areas in their field of vision, along with a variety of other symptoms specific to their particular disease. These symptoms are caused by damaged and leaking blood vessels, abnormal deposits on part of the retina, or abnormal blood vessel growth. These changes cause stress on the eye and affect vision.

  • Who is at Risk of Retinal Disease and Issues?

    While some retinal diseases, like macular degeneration, almost exclusively affect older adults, other retina issues can afflict patients of all ages.

    People who suffer from diabetes are at a heightened risk for retinal disease in the form of diabetic retinopathy. Both type 1 and type 2 diabetics run a higher risk of diabetic retinopathy.
