Experienced Retina Hospital in Gurgaon
If you notice some spots and flashes of light while looking at some distance, you may be experiencing the warning signs of a Detached Retina. As a result, your vision might become blurry, or you might experience poor vision. Also, you might see a shadow or a curtain descending from the top of the eye.A Detached Retina is a serious and sight-threatening event. It occurs when the retina becomes separated from its underlying supportive tissue. The retina cannot function when these layers are detached. And unless the retina is reattached soon, it may result into permanent loss of vision.
Retinal Detachment could be a result of an eye or face injury, cataract surgery, tumors, or eye diseases. But diabetes may also cause Retinal Detachment. It usually occurs when a tear or hole in the retina allows the liquid vitreous to get under the retina and accumulate. The retina separates from the back wall of the eye. This detachment causes symptoms of a gradually enlarging veil or dark shadow in the peripheral visual field. When the detachment extends into the central part of the retina (macula) the central vision is lost.Retinal Detachment should be fixed immediately to prevent complete loss of vision. Ideally, the Retinal Detachment should be repaired prior to the involvement of the macula. If the macula becomes detached, the vision is unlikely to be as good as it was prior to the Retinal Detachment even with successful surgical reattachment, which is possible through our Retina clinic in Gurgaon.
Retinal Detachment is generally preceded by the formation of holes or tears in the retina; symptoms of which may include sudden onset of flashes and floaters -multiple black spots or cobweb like floating objects in front of the affected eye.
