Diseases and disorders of the retina are some of the most common conditions we treat at Virginia Mason. Many of these conditions are the result of aging (macular degeneration), disease (diabetic retinopathy) or trauma to the eye or head (retinal tear/detachment). Millions of patients in the United States are treated for retinal disorders every year — and millions more are expected to seek treatment as the population in the U.S. ages. Our ophthalmologists and optometrists are regional leaders in diagnosing and treating patients with retinal disorders. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call (206) 223-6840.
