Retina is a nervous tissue thin layer locating on the inside of the eyeball and absorbing light. The eye retina is responsible for accepting the image projected with the help of the cornea and crystalline lens and transforming it in nervous impulses transferred to the brain.
HOW TO ASSESS THE RETINA STATE?
Fundus examination using a fundus-lens allows visualizing those retina areas, which the traditional ophthalmoscope examination fails to do. This examination allows identifying the retina potentially threatening states. That is why, every patient examined at the center diagnostically is performed a fundus-lens examination of the fundus.
RETINA THREATENING STATES ARE THE FOLLOWING
- All the types of retina rupture.
- Retina peripheral dystrophy (ethmoidal, “snail trace” type, retinal peripheral erosions).
- Vitreochorioretinal dystrophy leading to retinal detachment development.
- Fundus disorders under various somatic diseases (diabetes mellitus, atherosclerosis, hypertension, kidney diseases, etc.).
