Retinal detachment is a medical condition that can potentially lead to permanent loss of vision. It results when the retina, located at the back of the eye, gets detached from the surrounding tissues.

A detached retina does not result in pain or inflammation. But the patient can see a lot of floaters and flashes of light. In addition, darkening of side vision is experienced in patients whose retina has detached from its original location.

An eye doctor conducts an eye exam of the patient as soon as he or she reports experiencing the aforementioned symptoms. The doctor uses a special eye drop to dilate the pupil and look deep into the eye to confirm if the retina has detached.

Retinal detachment treatment depends on whether the patient’s retina has completely detached or if there is just a tear. Thermal (laser) or freezing (cryopexy) is typically used to treat a tear if it is diagnosed in its early stages.

In a Retinal detachment surgery, the surgeon may sew an invisible silicone band around the white part of the eye. This helps heal the tear, which is ultimately sealed with the help of thermal or freezing treatment.
