Many vision problems involve the retina, the light-sensitive tissue that lines the back of the eye. These disorders cause gradual vision loss that progresses, or gets worse, over time. The following are some of the most common retinal disorders, with links to more information.
- Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) - the breakdown, or degeneration, of the area of the retina called the macula.
- Retinal detachment - the separation of the retina from the back of the eye.
- Retinitis pigmentosa - a group of hereditary eye disorders that affect the ability of the retina to sense light.
