If the retina is torn or perforated, what steps will the specialist eye do ...?

To determine the diagnosis of retinal detachment, specialist doctors will certainly do an ophthalmoscopy with a special tool to see the inside of the eye.

If the ophthalmoscope cannot observe the condition of the retina clearly, for example due to bleeding in the eye, the priest's specialist takes steps to take an ultrasound of the eye.


Retinal detachment is not always preventable. However, the risk of retinal detachment can be reduced through the following steps, namely:

1. Immediately check with your eye doctor if floaters, flashes of light, or any changes occur in the field of view.

2. Routine eye examination at least once a year. The examination should be done more often if you have diabetes.

3. Routinely control sugar levels and blood pressure, so that the condition of the retinal blood vessels remains healthy.

4. Use eye protection when exercising or when carrying out activities that risk injuring the eyes.


Treatment for retinal detachment varies, depending on the condition of the patient. If the retina is torn or perforated but has not been released, the ophthalmologist can apply several measures to improve vision and prevent the retina from being released between them:

1. Kriopeksi.

This procedure is done by freezing tears in the retina, so that the retina remains attached to the eye wall.

2. Laser therapy (Photocoagulation).

Laser light will burn tissue around the retinal tear. The laser will also help the retina stick.

And if the retina is released, the doctor will treat it with surgery or surgery. The type of surgery performed depends on the severity of the patient's condition. These operations include:

1. Pneumatic retinopexy.

This procedure is done by injecting gas bubbles into the eye, which will push the retina back to its normal position. This procedure is chosen if only a small portion of the retina is released.

2. Vitrectomy.

In vitrectomy, the doctor will expel the vitreous and the tissues that attract the retina. Then, gas or silicone bubbles will be injected into the eye to hold the retina in position. Over time, gas bubbles will be replaced naturally by body fluids.

3. Scleral buckling.

In this procedure, the doctor will place silicone from the outside of the white part of the eye (sclera). This silicone will bring the eyeball wall closer to the retina, so that the retina returns to its position.

If the condition of the retina's release is very severe, silicone will be permanently placed around the eye. Even so, silicon will not block vision. Greetings always healthy ...
