Retinal Detachment

  • Retinal Detachment

Retinal detachment is a critical condition where the retina becomes dislodged from its original position. Immediate treatment is essential, as delaying the treatment increases the risk of permanent vision loss.

The retina is situated at the rear of the eye and plays a crucial role in converting incoming light into signals that are transmitted via the optic nerve. When the retina detaches, it leads to partial or complete vision loss, depending on the extent of detachment. Additionally, retinal detachment deprives its cells of oxygen, potentially resulting in permanent vision loss if not promptly addressed.

How is retinal detachment treated?


Diagnosing retinal detachment involves a comprehensive eye examination to assess visual acuity, eye pressure, eye appearance, color perception, and the retina's ability to transmit signals to the brain. Additionally, the blood supply to the retina and its condition are evaluated. Imaging tests may also be recommended to visualize the retina and determine the extent of detachment. These imaging scans include:

Optical coherence tomography (OCT): A non-invasive and painless procedure that uses light waves to create 3D color-coded cross-sectional images of the retina.

Ocular ultrasound: Although it may cause slight discomfort, eye ultrasounds are typically performed with numbing eye drops. The procedure involves applying ultrasound gel to closed eyelids and scanning for digital imaging.

How to prevent retinal detachment?

  • While there is no foolproof method to prevent retinal detachment, you can take certain precautions to reduce the risk:
  • Use protective eyewear during sports and heavy lifting, particularly in activities with a higher likelihood of head or eye injuries.
  • Wear specialized goggles and protective eyewear when handling power tools.
  • Maintain proper blood sugar control if you have diabetes and manage other systemic conditions.
  • Prioritize regular eye examinations and promptly consult an eye specialist when experiencing symptoms.
