Retinal artery and nerve injury, including the partial or complete occlusions of the retina, are the leading cause of blindness worldwide.
A significant number of these conditions result from trauma to the retina.
The retinal injury can cause loss of vision and can lead to permanent loss of function in some patients.
In the U.S., more than 200,000 people are diagnosed with a retinal tear each year.
A large percentage of those with these conditions are older adults.
The eye is not only the bridge, but the one most often injured.
In fact, it is one of the most injured organs in the body, accounting for more than $8 trillion in medical costs.
Here are five facts about the retina and how it is affected by trauma.
What happens when the retina tears?
The retina is an organ that makes up about one-third of the human body.
It has three layers of cells called rods and cones, which communicate with each other via nerves called afferents.
The retina contains hundreds of thousands of nerve cells, which are attached to a membrane of the cornea, or vitreous, lining.
The cornea also has rods, which, when stimulated by light, make contact with the retina’s cells.
The nerve fibers in the retina then send signals to the optic nerve, which connects to other areas of the brain, which can send electrical impulses to the brain.
In addition to sending signals, the retina also has a layer of pigment cells that make up the retina tissue.
The color-changing cells called melanocytes are responsible for the color of the surrounding tissue.
Each melanocyte has two or more specialized pigment cells called rod cells that have different colors depending on their location in the cell.
The rods and the cones are the two main types of cells in the eye.
The other types of cell are the astrocytes, which live in the lining of the pupil and are responsible the color and intensity of the light reflected from the retina to the rest of the body.
In this case, the cells in our eyes are the rods.
How are rods and retinas damaged?
Rods are the structures that make light waves.
They are the most important part of the rods and cone cells.
When they tear, the rods are damaged.
When damaged, the rod cells become detached from the rods, and they are unable to connect to other cells in order to form new rods.
The loss of the entire rod network is known as retinal detachment.
Retinal detachment is the first sign of damage to the rods of the eye, and it usually causes the eye to change color.
Retina loss can occur at any time in the life span of a person.
It usually occurs during or after surgery, and can be caused by surgery, a stroke, or even aging.
However, the most common reason for retinal loss is injury from the lens of the eyes.
How can a person heal a retina tear?
The best way to treat a retinitis pigmentosa (RPE) is to have an eye surgeon perform an operation to replace the rods with new rods and to treat the damage with anti-inflammatory drugs and surgery to repair the lens.
For patients who cannot repair the damage themselves, a retinoic acid (RA) eye treatment may help to restore color to the vision.
A new rod will have the same color as the old one, but it will be thicker and stronger than the old.
This is the same as having a new pair of glasses or sunglasses.
The new rod should be inserted into the eye for at least 24 hours, and the person should wear it for at most three weeks.
In order to treat RPE, a person must be treated in the outpatient setting, which involves either surgery or a combination of surgery and laser treatment.
This type of treatment is not recommended if a person has a known history of retinal trauma or has a history of having other eye conditions.
The procedure for repairing a RPE is called retinal fusion.
In some cases, it can be performed in the emergency room or a hospital emergency room.
Retinitis pigmentosa is often treated in a procedure called retinochorionic surgery.
This surgery uses lasers to cut and remove a layer or part of an existing layer of cells from the affected area of the RPE.
This can be done in a hospital setting, but patients should not be put in a surgery room without a physician’s permission.
The surgery usually is done in the operating room, and all patients must have a prescription for retinoids.
How often do retinal injuries occur?
Most people who have a RTE do not have any visible or near-visible damage.
However: Most people with RTE have an increased risk of complications including blindness, corneal retinal tears, and vision loss.
