Abstract

Parasitic retinal infection has never been thoroughly and comprehensively diagnosed and treated in our overall population. With rapid development of our medical and paramedical fields, many diagnostic and therapeutic tools are now available to combat this devastating disease. This article briefly reviews the pathogenesis of most common types of parasitic retinal infections, points out the most up-to-date diagnostic tools, and outlines the therapeutic choices currently available. Further discussion on the optimal therapy of choice is provided as a practical guide for the practicing ophthalmologist.
