Retina and vitreous

Desprendimiento-de-Retina

Retinal detachment

 

It is an eye disease caused by the separation of the inner retina from its outermost layer, the pigment epithelium.

DMAE-menu

Macular degeneration (AMD)

 

Macular degeneration affects central vision seriously but peripheral vision remains, and therefore it never produces total blindness.

retinopatia_menu

Diabetic retinopathy.

 

It is a metabolic disease affecting the retinal vessels, causing blood or fluid leakage. It is one of the leading causes of blindness worldwide.

membrana-epirretiana_menu

Epiretinal membrane

 

Epiretinal membrane is produced by the growth of a tissue in the macular area of the retina that causes decreased visual acuity and distortion of images.

Agujero-macular

Macular hole

 

The macular hole is a break in the retina at the level of the macula. The patient usually reports a decrease in central vision and metamorphopsias or distortion of images.

DESPRENDIMIENTO-VITREO

Posterior vitreous detachment

 

The vitreous is a collagen gel that fills the eye socket and has anchoring zones that allow it to be attached to the retina.

Vascular Occlusions

 

There are two types of vascular occlusions, arterial and venous.

Miopia-magma

Myopia Magna

 

The myopia occurs subsequent elongation of the eyeball seems to be genetically conditioned and influenced by environmental factors.

Retinosis-pigmentaria

Retinitis Pigmentosa

 

Retinitis pigmentosa is an inherited disease that affects the light photoreceptor cells in the retina. The age of onset varies between 25 and 40 years, although there are cases diagnosed before age 20 or after 50 years.

Central serous choroiditis

 

Central serous choroiditis is a detachment of the neurosensory retina of the macula.
