169 Possible Causes for Retinal Degeneration with Macular Involvement

  • Alzheimer Disease

    degeneration.[dailymail.co.uk] 'Research into retinal scans for detecting Alzheimer's is promising but still in the very early stages.[dailymail.co.uk] 'This research only involved a very small number of people, and it didn't show whether these retinal changes could be detectable before people develop symptoms.[dailymail.co.uk]

  • Macular Degeneration

    Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a multifactorial disease for which an involvement of alterations in the retinal ABC transporter gene (ABCA4) is still debated.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Photodynamic Therapy Laser treatment of macular degeneration, especially that involving the sharpest area of the vision, has been frustrating, because the laser treatment[richmondeye.com] While injection of medication directly into the eye does not sound particularly appealing, it is a safe and almost painless procedure performed countless times by retinal[richmondeye.com]

  • Retinal Perforation

    A macular hole should not be confused with macular degeneration or a retinal detachment.[visionaware.org] A major component of surgical repair for macular hole involves removing the vitreous traction or tugging on the macula through microscopic instruments inserted through microscopic[visionaware.org]

  • Retinitis Pigmentosa

    The retinal disease starts with macular involvement (red-cherry spot) and later spreads to peripheral retina.[ojrd.com] End stage X-linked retinoschisis are difficult to distinguish from RP because of the macular degeneration and frequent pigmented lesions in peripheral retina.[ojrd.com] Neurological diseases • Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis (also called Batten disease or amaurotic idiocies), associates mental retardation, seizures, ataxia and retinal degeneration[ojrd.com]

  • Myopic Macular Degeneration

  • Olivopontocerebellar Atrophy

    On light microscopy, a retinal degeneration that involved primarily the photoreceptor layer was present and appeared to start in the macular area and spread to involve the[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] degeneration (OPCA type III).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The retinal pigment epithelium was variably hypopigmented and hyperpigmented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Vitreous Hemorrhage

    Almost all patients have macular involvement, most commonly with foveal spoke-like streaks consisting of microcystic cavities that may coalesce over time.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu] References Retinoschisis, Juvenile Clinical Characteristics Ocular Features: Retinoschisis is a retinal disorder characterized by a cystic degeneration of the retina, leading[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu] […] to a split of retinal layers mainly at the level of the nerve fiber layer.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu]
