Inherited Retinal Diseases archive
The retina is a thin layer of tissue that lines the back of the eye on the inside. It is located near the optic nerve. The purpose of the retina is to receive light that the lens has focused, convert the light into neural signals, and send these signals on to the brain for visual recognition. Many retinal diseases are genetic and some are caused by the adverse effects of medications or by infections.
In this Clinica blog, we inform patients of the different inherited retinal conditions, their treatments, and the technology and techniques used to treat the conditions.
