Here at The Retina Group of Washington, we are proud to offer the latest state-of-the-art procedures, along with the advanced equipment needed to perform them expertly. Ashburn laser eye surgery goes beyond vision correction, and is used to repair the effects of diseases like diabetic retinopathy, as well as to correct torn or detached retinas.
Type one and type two diabetes may impact your vision and also your eye wellness. If diabetic retinopathy forms and progresses, you may sustain damage to your retinal blood vessels. Hemorrhaging may impede your vision as blood leaks into your eyes. The entire thing can be unsettling, and it’s certainly dangerous. Our Ashburn laser eye surgery can be used to repair those leaking blood vessels, and also to shrink enlarged ones. Diabetic retinopathy typically develops without any obvious warning signs. It is not until it becomes advanced that you would be likely to notice symptoms. If you are a diagnosed diabetic, you should get a yearly checkup to determine if you are at risk for harm due to diabetes. Retinal tears, while not as serious as a complete detachment, still need timely attention. And again, our Ashburn laser eye surgery comes to to the rescue. By getting prompt care, you can avoid the torn retina becoming detached. If you do have one that is detached, though, the need is even more urgent. We offer options such as laser photocoagulation, cryotherapy, retinopexy, scleral buckle, and vitrectomy. Each of these procedures, either separate or sometimes in conjunction with one another, are done as outpatient surgeries, so no hospital stay is generally required.
We are your retinal specialists. Should you require or be able to benefit from the choices among our Ashburn laser eye surgery options, you can feel confident that you are in the best possible hands. Call us to set up a time to come in for a consultation to find out if you are a good candidate.
