WHAT CAUSES A RETINAL DETACHMENT?

The most common cause of a retinal detachment is when a hole forms in the retina. This allows fluid to separate the retina from the back of the eye. Less common causes of retinal detachment include from diabetes or from a leaking tumor.

WHAT ARE THE TREATMENTS FOR A RETINAL DETACHMENT?

Retinal detachments are treated with outpatient surgery. A gas bubble or silicone oil bubble combined with laser surgery is used. In some cases, an office procedure can be used to treat a retinal detachment to avoid surgery.
