Retinal Degeneration

Retinal Degeneration Definition

Retinal degeneration refers to the deterioration of the retinal tissue. The degeneration of the retina may occur as a consequence of a number of factors, including vein or artery occlusion, diabetic retinopathy, and hereditary RLF/ROP disease, among others. Several types of progressive retinal degeneration exist in varying degrees or severities. Examples are retinoschisis, retinitis pigmentosa, lattic degeneration, and macular degeneration.

Retinal Degeneration Treatment

Treatment for retinal degeneration varies depending on the cause, symptoms, effects, or type of specific degeneration. Affected individuals may be required to wear a range of optical aids and use controlled illumination mechanisms. Children diagnosed with retinal degeneration should receive constant ophthalmological care and monitored regularly, especially because retinal detachments are a distinct possibility.
