This is a French translation of the English pamphlet 0461, “Retina Information and Treatments". This pamphlet was prepared by the Eye Care Centre, Capital Health. The retina is as thin as tissue paper. It changes light into a message which the optic nerve carries to the brain. Change or damage to the retina can cause loss of vision. This pamphlet describes common problems of the retina (retinal holes and tears, diabetic retinopathy, and retinal detachment) and treatments (laser, cold treatment, and three different surgeries).
