Protect Your Vision: Understanding and Treating Retinal Detachments

Posted on December 21, 2023 by Janigian Retina Associates in Retina Conditions

Retinal detachments: A retinal detachment is a separation of the light-sensing tissue from the back wall of the eye. It is a condition that can be associated with trauma, after ocular surgery (such as cataracts) and most frequently occurs without any identifiable cause. This may result in permanent vision loss and needs to be addressed and treated promptly by a retina specialist. Symptoms of retinal detachment include new onset of dark floaters in your vision, new flashing lights and dark curtains in your peripheral vision. This is always painless and can occur suddenly.

Our doctors are trained and experienced at identifying and treating retinal detachments to help protect your vision. We employ various techniques to treat retinal detachments ranging from in-office procedures such as injection of gas into the eye combined with laser or freezing therapy to surgery with scleral buckling (placing a permanent band around your eye and using freezing treatment) and vitrectomy (an internal approach to your detachment with the latest surgical devices).

If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms or are suffering from sudden vision loss, call our office today for an evaluation with our retina specialists.
