The human eye is considered to be one of the essential organs. We need to take some care of protecting them. Retinal detachment is a serious problem and requires immediate medical attention. It occurs when the vitreous gel pulls loose or separates from the retina. Vision loss also happens in case of detached retina detachment diseases. So take immediate actions and steps to prevent the retinal detachment.
How to treat retinal detachments
Laser photocoagulation is focused on the retinal tear and small detachment. The laser emits a light that will travel via the eye and burns the area around the retinal tear or detachment. The scar tissue will help to seal the tear and detachment portion of the retina.
Cryotherapies are freezing therapy to create a scar. Inject an anaesthetic around the eye, and the surgeon put a freezing probe over the tear or area of retinal detachment. After that, the surgeons provide a topical steroid to your eyes to prevent inflammation.
Different types of retinal detachments
Rhegmatogenous retinal detachment is one of the most common types of retinal disease. Due to the retinal tear, it may separate the surface of the retina is known as posterior vitreous detachment. The vitreous separates the tear, and it may peels away from the retina and finally causes a tear.
Exudative retinal detachment occurs during the fluid accumulates underneath the retina, and it does not cause any retinal tear with inflammatory conditions such as systemic lupus erythemtosus, intraocular melanoma of the eye. The exudative retinal detachment can affect both eyes.
Tractional retinal detachment occurs with the vitreous pulls on the retina and creates scar over time. Also, cause vision loss because of the retinal detachment. These types of condition are seen in people with diabetic retinopathy. In such cases, diabetes damages the blood vessels in the retina.
