One of our most crucial and valuable senses is ‘vision’. Eyes are made up of several parts and all of them are equally important for vision. When light enters into the eye, it is directed in the right amount towards the eye lens. The complex anatomy of the eye converts this incoming light into electrical energy.
The retina is the thin layer of tissue that is light-sensitive. This layer lines the inside of the back of the eye. It sends visual messages to the brain via the optic nerve. In some people, the retina detaches; it is pulled or lifted from its normal position. Retinal breaks or tears in small retinal areas can result in retinal detachment.
Retinal vein occlusion (RVO) is a common vascular disorder of the retina and common cause of vision loss. It is also a common cause of blindness from retinal vascular disease,
