Serving Shreveport and Longview
Ark-La-Tex Retina Consultants focuses exclusively on treatment for the retina, macula and vitreous. If you think of the eye as a camera, the retina would be the “film” of the camera, forming the tissue that actually “sees” what you are looking at. The macula is the center of the retina, providing the means to see clearly when looking straight ahead. Most serious retina problems occur in the vitreous, the clear material that fills the central cavity of the eye.
Ark-La-Tex Retina consultants handle major and minor problems facing these areas of the eye, including the following:
Flashes and Floaters – strands and strings that appear in your line of vision as a result of PVD or other retinal problems.
Retinal Tears and Vitreous Hemorrhages – a tearing of the retina that allows blood cells to enter, creating dark lines in the eye and distorting vision.
Retinal Detachment – a separation of the retina from the vitreous, leading to complete loss of vision. This can occur in up to one in every 10,000 people in the United States.
Lattice Degeneration – abnormal thinning of the peripheral retina.
By meeting with us and performing a personal consultation, our staff can recommend the best and most effective course of action, including surgery specific to the affliction of your eyes.
