Retinal detachment

Retinal separation/detachment is a serious condition of the eye in which the retina stops receiving oxygen. Your retina is the part of your eye that sends images through your optic nerve to the brain. Your retina contains millions of cells that detect light like a camera. It is part of the very back of your eyeball and is essential to your vision.

Retinal detachment occurs when the retina pulls away from the back of the eye and the blood supply. Without a blood supply, the retinal cells will start to die. This can make changeless harm to your vision. If the macula begins to loosen, your vision may be permanently damaged. If  macula completely detaches, you may lose your vision entirely. Reattaching the retina quickly is essential to prevent such a serious complication.

Retinal detachment happens because the vitreous fluid of the eye drawn back from the back of the eye, pulling the retina and tearing it. Some causes and risk factors of retinal detachment include glaucoma, severe trauma, nearsightedness, previous cataract surgery, previous retinal detachment in your other eye, or family history of retinal detachment. Symptoms of a retinal detachment include frightening. Objects might appear to float in front of your eye, or a gray veil may move across your field of vision. If not treated quickly, a retinal detachment can cause you to lose your vision. Retinal detachment repair is a surgery used to restore circulation to the retina and restore vision.
