Peripheral Retinal Abnormalities

Peripheral retinal abnormalities are more commonly found in nearsighted people. The abnormalities include lattice degeneration, retinal holes and retinal tears.  These conditions put patients at risk for a retinal detachment which can results in severe vision loss. The abnormalities can be detected during a dilated retinal examination and many can be followed through observation.
