Eye Diseases & Conditions

Every year, millions of people around the world suffer from eye health problems that can result in a loss of vision and even blindness. Unfortunately, many common eye diseases and eye conditions don't display any symptoms until later stages, at which point it may be too late. That's why it's important to get regular eye exams so that any eye diseases or eye conditions can be detected early on and treatment be made available.

Retinal Detachment

Your retina is located at the back of your eye and is responsible for focusing on objects and transmitting visual information to your brain. Retinal detachment is an extremely serious disorder in which your retina actually peels away from the underlying layers of tissue that hold it in place. In most cases, this is caused by other vision problems or when you experience a serious injury in or around your eye. Without immediate treatment by an eye care professional, retinal detachment can lead to vision loss and even blindness.

If you think you may have a retinal detachment, be sure to IMMEDIATELY contact an FYidoctors location nearest you and let them know about your concerns: www.fyidoctors.com/find-a-location
