When you are experiencing the effects of retinal disease or disorders, such as diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, or ocular histoplasmosis, the result can be physical damage to your eyes as well as vision loss. Here at Retina Consultants of Long Island, we are committed to using only the most advanced, effective, safe treatments and techniques to address these concerns. Eye laser therapy in Rockville Centre is one such way that we do so.
Lasers are used extensively in healthcare nowadays. And with good reason. They offer greater accuracy and precision, and quicker healing, among other benefits. Retinal disease puts you at risk, and it’s not always obvious until the condition has reached an advanced stage. There are typically no symptoms associated with either diabetic retinopathy or macular degeneration early on. They form and progress silently. It’s a big part of the reason why all adults should have a yearly eye exam. Screenings lead to prompt detection and treatment, many times before any harm occurs. However, when that is not possible, our laser therapy in Rockville Centre may be the best option for treatment. Ocular histoplasmosis can be especially frightening. It is a fungal based disease and is associated with some alarming signs, many of which are similar to the flu. Irreversible vision loss is a distinct possibility, and our laser therapy in Rockville Centre offers a solution. The high intensity light that it produces is focused on the retina, so that the surrounding parts of your eye are entirely unaffected by the the treatment. It is performed on an outpatient basis, and is generally free of pain. The results of the procedure are typically impressive.
