Lattice Degeneration

Lattice degeneration describes focal areas of thinned retina.  Thinning of the retina is more common as we age, and especially in eyes that are nearsighted.  This finding is significant because these areas are more prone to retinal tears or holes.  Fortunately, most people with lattice degeneration never develop retinal tears; however it is prudent to be aware of the symptoms of a retinal tear.  These include flashing lights, sudden floaters, and most importantly, a veil or a cloud coming down over your vision.  You should promptly notify our office if you experience any of these symptoms.
