Is There a Treatment for Lattice Degeneration?
June 27, 2012
I’m a 40 year old male with nearsightedness. My ophthalmologist recently sent me to a retina specialist after noticing something different, and the specialist diagnosed lattice degeneration in my right eye.
The condition is asymptomatic, and I was told to return for examinations on an annual basis to monitor.
Was wondering if there are any treatments for asymptomatic lattice degeneration? Any thoughts on options to pursue, or simply monitor? Is there a higher risk of retinal detachment given this condition?
Incidentally, I’ve read about OCT on this blog – would examination with OCT be helpful? Thank you.
