Retinal Detachment Eye Surgery

What is Retinal Detachment ?

The retina is a thin, transparent tissue of light-sensitive nerve fibers and cells. It covers the inside wall of the eye the same as wallpaper covers the walls of a room.

Most retinal detachments are caused by the presence of one or more small tears or holes in the retina. Normal aging can sometimes cause the retina to thin and deteriorate, but more often shrinkage of the vitreous body, the clear gel-like substance which fills the center of the eye, is responsible for deterioration and retinal tears.

The vitreous is firmly attached to the retina in several places around the back wall of the eye. As the vitreous shrinks, it may pull a piece of the retina away with it, leaving a tear or hole in the retina…

Causes

Retinal detachment will affect about one out of 10,000 people each year in the U.S. It is a serious eye problem that may occur at any age, though usually it occurs in middle-aged or older individuals.

It is more likely to develop in people who are nearsighted, or whose relatives had retinal detachments. A hard, solid blow to the eye may also cause the retina to detach. Severe trauma to the eye, such as a contusion or a penetrating wound, may be the cause, but in the great majority of cases, retinal detachment is the result of internal changes in the vitreous chamber associated with aging, or less frequently, with inflammation of the interior of the eye…

Treatment

These include : –

Laser (thermal) or freezing (cryopexy) : – Both of these approaches can repair a detached retina if it is diagnosed early enough…

Pneumatic retinopexy : – This procedure can be used to treat retinal detachment if the tear is small and easy to close. A small gas bubble is injected into the vitreous where it then rises and presses against the retina, closing the tear…

Scleral buckle : – This treatment for retinal detachment involves placing a silicone band (buckle)around the eye to hold the retina in place…

Vitrectomy : – This procedure for retinal detachment is used for large tears. During a vitrectomy the vitreous is removed from the eye and replaced with a saline solution…
