A yearly eye exam is more than just something you get at an optical store to determine what prescription you need for eyeglasses or contact lenses. It’s a vital part of what we offer here with our Ashburn ophthalmology. At The Retina Group of Washington, we’ve been at the forefront of diagnosing and treating retinal problems for over three decades and counting. And we want you, our valued patient, to know that the sooner an eye disease or condition is detected and addressed, the most likely that a favorable outcome will be reached.
There are a variety of retinal issues that we manage encompasses everything from age-related macular degeneration to diabetic retinopathy; from retinal detachments and tears to complications that have occurred due to cataracts, glaucoma or cataract surgery. And much more. Any retinal disease or concern that can affect the retinas is something that our Ashburn ophthalmology will handle for you with the highest level of skill and the vast experience that we bring to the process. This includes both adult and pediatric retinal problems, as well as ocular oncology. Our solutions range from treatments with prescription lenses and medications to surgery, which is sometimes necessary. Not every retinal disease can be cured per se, but they all respond to treatments and management to the point where their progress can be stopped or at least slowed. With those problems that are the result of accidents or injuries, such as detached or torn retina, it is very important to receive prompt and skilled attention to avoid any permanent consequences and to prevent vision loss.
Our Ashburn ophthalmology represents the specialists who you depend on for yourself and your child. If you are experiencing symptoms that concern you, have been diagnosed with retinal disease, or are prone to it (such as being type one or type two diabetic), schedule an eye exam with us right now.
