Overview

Retinopathy is a general term that refers to some form of non-inflammatory damage to the retina of the eye. Most commonly, it is a problem with the blood supply that is the cause for this condition. Frequently, retinopathy is an ocular manifestation of systemic disease.

Causes

The main causes of retinopathy are:

Prognosis

Many types of retinopathy are progressive and may result in blindness, severe vision loss, or impairment, particularly if the macula becomes affected.

Treatment

Retinopathy is diagnosed by an optometrist or an ophthalmologist during ophthalmoscopy. Treatment depends on the cause of the disease.
