KMN EyeCare’s retina division is highly experienced in treating retina disorders. The retina, which consists of light-sensitive layers of tissue, is responsible for converting the light waves that are projected from the cornea and lens into electrical impulses that will be transmitted to the brain for processing. The neural layer of the retina consists of photoreceptors. As photoreceptors are unable to regenerate themselves, any damage to the neural layer of the retina can cause permanent vision loss.
The retina is the target of a wide range of structural and functional medical conditions. These conditions can be hereditary or acquired. Careful and meticulous examinations are thus required in order to produce a precise diagnosis for a certain retina condition.
