Macular and Retinal Diseases

Many problems can affect the portion of the eye called the macula or retina. This is a fine layer of nerve cells that line the back of the eye. Systemic, or body, conditions can affect the retina including diabetes or high blood pressure. If undetected or untreated, these can result in permanent vision loss.

Macular degeneration is vision-threatening disease of the back lining of the eye, or retina. Macular degeneration has several stages from an early, dry form to a wet, late form that is detected by complete eye examinations and advanced computerized imaging and testing offered at the Foley Eye clinic.

Dr. Foley Can Help

After your thorough, complete eye examination and testing, which may include photos and computerized imaging of the retina, Dr. Foley will discuss all treatment options with you in the management of your macular or retinal disease.
