A detached retina is a serious and sight-threatening event, occurring when the retina becomes separated from its underlying supportive tissue. The retina cannot function when these layers are detached. And unless the retina is reattached soon, permanent vision loss may result. Retinal detachment itself is painless. But warning signs almost always appear before it occurs or has advanced, such as:
• The sudden appearance of many floaters — tiny specks that seem to drift through your field of vision
• Flashes of light in one or both eyes
• Blurred vision
• Gradually reduced side (peripheral) vision
• A curtain-like shadow over your visual field
HOW IS RETINAL DETACHMENT DIAGNOSED?
An eye examination by an ophthalmologist which would include the dilation of the eye would help in diagnosing the detachment of the retina.
HOW IS RETINAL DETACHMENT TREATED?
A procedure using a laser or cryopexy could be used to repair the tear in the retina. Pneumatic retinopexy is another procedure to repair retinal tears if they are small. In some cases where the retinal tears are large then surgery which would involve procedures such as a vitrectomy or the use of a scleral buckle would be performed.
DID YOU KNOW?
Retinal detachment may cause one to lose vision. Depending on one's degree of vision loss, one's lifestyle might change significantly.
