It is essential to be aware of the symptoms of retinal disease so that
it can be detected and treated early, as it is a leading cause of blindness.
However, because the retina does not have nerve endings, it can be difficult
to notice issues on your own. Some of the ways you can be aware of the
possible development of retinal disease include being aware of risk factors,
such as age, family history, and pre-existing health conditions, as well
as having a regular dilated retina exam. During a dilated retina exam,
your eye doctor will examine your eye for damage, light sensitivity, eye
pressure, and other important factors regarding your eye health.
