Your retina is the thin tissue that coats the inside of your eye. It is responsible for receiving light energy and converting that light to impulses that travel through the optic nerve to the brain. It is this process that allows your brain to process visual images. Any damage to your retinal tissue can disrupt this important connection between the eye and the brain, ultimately causing vision disturbances (or even blindness if left untreated).
Dr. Robert Pendleton is trained to identify retinal diseases through dilated eye exams, diagnose specific conditions and provide the proper treatment to protect your vision.
Floaters in your field of vision can not only be a nuisance, they can also interfere with your daily activities. Comprised of collagen fiber clusters, floaters create a shadow-type effect on your vision in the form of strands, cobwebs or rings. Dr. Pendleton can remove floaters using a vitreolysis floater laser treatment. To fully remove the floaters, more than one treatment session may be necessary.
