Your retina, the light-sensitive tissue that lines the back of the eye, is an important part of your eye. Millions of photoreceptor cells in the retina convert light into electrical impulses that are sent to the brain via the optic nerve. These impulses are ultimately turned into visual images. In the center of the retina is the macula. The macula provides central vision to see fine detail, read and drive.
If any part of the retina becomes damaged, your vision will be impacted. The doctors at BoozmanHof are specially trained to diagnose and treat retina problems. Early diagnosis is vital to help protect your vision; without proper and timely treatment, retina problems can lead to permanent vision loss.
