Treating retinal tears and detachment:

If you have a small retinal hole, your doctor may simply check your eyes often. This is to make sure the hole does not get worse. Tears and detachments usually require treatment.

Get Regular Eye Exams:

Regular eye exams help catch problems before they limit your vision. During an exam, your doctor will :

  • Ask you questions. Information about your health and your family history of eye problems help your doctor learn whether you’re at risk.
  • Test your vision.
  • Examine your eyes. To see your retina better, your doctor may dilate your pupils and use special instruments.

Sealing a tear :

Sealing tears prevents fluids from leaking and causing a detachment. Tears can be treated right away in the doctor’s clinic or at a surgery centre which specialises in laser or freezing therapy. Each of these treatments seals the retina to the back of the eye, and prevents progressive deterioration of the tear.

Fixing a detachment:

Detachments can be treated in the doctor’s clinic or a surgery centre. You may have more than one type of treatment. They include the following:

  • The tear that caused the detachment is sealed with a laser or by freezing.
  • The vitreous may be removed by surgery to keep it from pulling on the retina.
  • A gas bubble may be placed in the eye. Or a flexible band may be placed around the eye. These hold the retina in place.

It’s Up to You

If you notice symptoms of a retinal tear or detachment, call your doctor right away. Quick treatment is the key to preventing vision loss from these eye problems.
