The retina can suffer significant damage from ocular trauma. Eye injuries that may involve the retina include blunt trauma, eye lacerations, or penetration of the eye with a foreign body. In these cases, timely evaluation by a retina specialist and a ocular trauma repair procedure may improve recovery of vision following injury.
If you have experienced an eye trauma, seek an ophthalmologist or emergency room physician immediately. Consider asking your treating physician if you should seek the opinion of a retinal specialist.
