Presbyopia and cataract
This retinal disease commonly occurs in patients over 60 years of age. After diabetic retinopathy it is the most frequently encountered retinal vascular pathology.
Chorioretinitis serosa centralis affects young adults, particularly men, and occurs most frequently in people who are very active.
Macular holes occur especially with the older population and more frequent with women. They are caused because of some sort of traction from the liquid on the macula.
We talk about myope maculophathy when there are degenerative aberations of the central cornea with a strong near-sided patient.
This examination consists of photographing the fundus of the eye (i.e. the retina and the optic nerve at the back of the eye) after injecting a fluorescent dye in an artery, usually in the fold of the elbow (as for a blood test).
Patients with diabetes are more likely to develop eye problems such as cataracts and glaucoma, but the disease’s affect on the retina is the main threat to vision.
The macula is the central region in the retina. This area is responsible for sharp vision, which is necessary for being able to recognise objects and for reading.
