Treatment retinal detachment

Retinal detachment

The retina is a transparent tissue in the back of the eye that focuses the images we see. If it is torn or punctured, the internal fluids of the eye cause a separation of it from the underlying tissues.

Retinal detachment can occur without apparent cause, because of a trauma, diabetes or inflammatory process.It usually goes along with loss of central or peripheral vision, depending on the encompassing area it can lead to capillary bleedings which cause internal opacities.


  • Light flashes
  • Blurred vision
  • Eye floaters
  • Shadows or partial or total blindness


Depending on the extent most patients with retinal detachment need surgery. Some of the most common techniques:

  • Cryopexy
  • Laser surgery
  • Pneumatic retinopexy
  • Vitrectomy

In order to prevent irreversible vision loss early diagnosis is very important.
