Retinal detachment is a condition of retinal detachment from the underlying support tissue. This retinal detachment will lead to impaired retinal function.
If abnormal retinal detachment is not treated, the greater your risk for experiencing permanent loss of vision in the affected eye.
The diagnosis of retinal detachment is determined by interviews and multiple examinations. The doctor will examine the inside of the eye with a device called an ophthalmoscope. The Ophthalmoscope will provide a detailed picture, allowing doctors to see retinal holes, tears, and so on.
In addition, there are also ultrasound imaging examinations. The doctor may use this test in case of bleeding in the eye.
Retinal detachment does not cause pain. However, signs and symptoms almost always appear before the disease occurs or enter the advanced level.
Signs that indicate that you are experiencing retinal ablation, include:
- Emerging black spots floating in the field of vision
- A flash of light appeared on one or both eyes
- Blurred vision
- There was a kind of curtain that covered part of the eye
The most severe conditions that can be experienced by patients with retinal detachment are loss of vision or blindness.
If the retina is torn but has not detached, then retinal detachment can be prevented by the action of a laser beam. The use of lasers can create a burning effect on the retinal tear, so that scars and torn retinas may be attached to the underlying tissue.
In rare cases, when the laser can not be used, it can be cryoped instead. Coopection is the act of administering a cold temperature with an ice needle to attach the retina to the underlying tissue.
Meanwhile, if the retina is released then the patient needs surgery. Some of these types of surgery are:
Sewing of silicone rubber on the outside of white eyes (sclera). This silicone rubber will make the retina stick again in the eye wall.
Surgery to remove the vitreous from the inside of the eyeball.
Injection of gas into the eye, so that bubbles form which will then close the tear ducts. The bubbles will be absorbed and allow the retina to tear to reattach.
The main causes of retinal detachment are:
- The shriveled Vitreus. This vitamin is a clear viscous fluid that fills the inside of the eye
- Injury or inflammation
The risk of retinal ablation will increase if you:
- Aged over 50 years
- Never had a previous retinal detachment
- Have a family member with a retinal detachment
- Suffering from nearsightedness (myopia)
- Ever had an eye injury
- Have had other eye diseases or inflammation
Recognize Signs and Symptoms of Retinal Abdominal Disease
Many people have not known the symptoms of retinal detachment, even what is a retinal detachment. Retinal detachment is a condition in which the sensory retinal part is detached from its pigment epithelium (RIDE). This condition is a disorder or an eye disorder that is very dangerous even though more experienced by people who are elderly. The risk of people suffering from retinal ablation disease will be greater in people with myopic disorders or myopia disorders and people who have a history of retinal ablation disease.
Symptoms of Ablative Disease
The disease is divided into two types, namely retinal traction ablation and exclusively retinal detachment. Both types of disease are usually derived from other diseases that have spread into the eye area. Therefore if you have a disease should consult with your doctor immediately. Because if left unchecked can interfere with eyesight. The following are signs and symptoms of retinal detachment.
One of the signs and symptoms experienced by people with retinal detachment will typically experience floaters vision. Floaters is a state where at the moment of seeing there will be objects that hover. This is due to the incidence of vitreous memberuhnya part due to the entry of blood into the viterus. The patient will also experience double vision (the object seen into the shadow of two) as the person affected by minus.
Patients with retinal detachment will also experience photopsia or light flash. This condition is marked by a slight flicker but it will be like seeing a flash of light in front of the eye. This flicker can be very disturbing that makes the vision of patients with retinal detachment to be glare and shocked without any obvious cause.
Signs or symptoms Photopsia can also occur in someone who is sleep deprived or exhausted. Because tired eyes will often see flashes of light or black shadows. Therefore, to keep the eyes healthy is not expected to stay too often stay up because the effect is very bad.
Eyes Like Closed Curtains
The symptoms of this retinal ablation disease are also marked by the closed eye condition as the curtain, the longer the wider. Vision in this state decreases dramatically so it is very disturbing view. This condition will get worse if more and more part of retina covered eye like closed curtain.
Signs and symptoms of retino ablatio disease hereinafter is a condition wherein the eye of the patient there will be a circle like a parabola covering the eye. This parabola is similar to cataract patients in the eyes there is a white color covering the black eye.
If you experience signs and symptoms of an abdominal retina ablation disease as described above, then immediately consult a physician. Early examination is recommended to be done to get the right treatment. So the retinal ablation disease does not get worse.
