Lattice Degeneration is a thinning of the Retina that happens over time

By May 25, 2021 No Comments

Lattice Degeneration is a thinning of the Retina that happens over time. Although 10% of the population has Lattice Degeneration, most will not have any symptoms or loss of vision as a result. Rarely, Lattice Degeneration may lead to Retinal Detachment. While doctors aren’t certain about what causes Lattice Degeneration, it’s most common in people with myopia, or nearsightedness, and in people with diseases like Stickler or Marfan syndrome. Although it is not genetically passed down from parents, those with a family history are more likely to also contract it. Lattice Degeneration doesn’t typically have symptoms, but because the Retina is thinner it is more subject to holes, tears, and breaking, which can in turn lead to Retinal Detachment, which can cause blindness if not treated immediately.
