Retinal Detachment Surgery | EyeSurgeryAntalya

What is Retina?

The retina is the layer that contains light-sensitive cells and nerve fibers that allow us to see. The mesh layer we call the retina covers the posterior inner wall of the eyeball, just like a wallpaper. The retina consists of millions of visual cells and the nerve cells to which they are attached. Extensions of these nerve cells (approximately 1.5 million) come together to form the optic nerve. The vessels that feed these cells are also located in the retina. The specialized area in the retina that provides central vision and focuses the light is called the macula (yellow spot).

Defects in the retina cause the image not to be formed, and a disorder in the optic nerve causes the image not to reach the brain or to reach it incompletely. The person loses his sight.

The two most important diseases that threaten the retina are diabetes and hypertension. The retina department, which consists of specialist physicians and trained personnel in our hospital, provides eye health services to our retina patients.
