What is Retina Surgery?

Retinal detachment repair is a surgical procedure to place a retina back into its normal position. The retina is a light-sensitive tissue in the back of the eye. Detachment means that it has pulled away from the layers of tissue around it.

Retina surgery signs include:

  • Blurred vision
  • Dim vision
  • Distorted vision 
  • Number of floaters
  • Flashes of light
  • Gradually reduced side (peripheral) vision

Retina surgery risk factor includes:-

  • Risks of anaesthesia
  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Vision loss
  • Myopia,
  • Retinal Tears
  • Trauma
  • To identify the diagnosis doctor advised going for complete evolution - usually blood investigation, fundus photography or ophthalmoscopy, an instrument with a bright light and pupil dilation.
  • Before the operation, you’ll be asked to sign a consent form, which gives the surgeon permission to carry out the treatment.
  • The doctor should be informed about any medication that the patient may be taking.
  • The patient is admitted to the hospital on the same days before the procedures.
  • Thinners medicines may have to stop before 3 days of surgery.

 

A retinal surgery or a detached retina will treat with a surgical procedure on based on patient condition. Before surgery, the eye surgeon and anaesthesia doctors will guide you about benefits and risk factor of treatment.

These are a line of treatment for Retina surgery:-

Torn retina surgery: Most retinal tears need to be treated by sealing the retina to the back wall of the eye with laser surgery or cryotherapy (a freezing treatment). Both of these procedures create a scar that helps seal the retina to the back of the eye.

Laser surgery (photocoagulation): With laser surgery, the ophthalmologist uses a laser to make small burns around the retinal tear. The scarring that results in seals the retina to the underlying tissue, helping to prevent a retinal detachment.

Freezing (cryopexy):  The eye surgeon uses a special freezing probe to apply intense cold and freeze the retina around the retinal tear. The result is a scar that helps secure the retina to the eyewall.

Detached retina surgery: This treatment involves placing a flexible band (scleral buckle) around the eye to counteract the force pulling the retina out of place. The ophthalmologist often drains the fluid under the detached retina, allowing the retina to settle back into its normal position against the back wall of the eye. This procedure is performed in an operating room.

 

 

  • The doctor will give complete information about post care of surgery, regarding recovery; proper caring of incisions, taking medications and managing.
  • Patients are allowed to wear sunglasses to protest eyes for the first week.
  • Read books in moderation for the first week.
  • Need follow-up after 6 months

The success rate depends on the patient, surgeon experience but it is safe surgery with less risk and the success rate is more than 80 to 90 %.

  • Are you board-certified eye surgeon?
  • How many years’ experience of you has in this field?
  • How many surgeries are you doing every day?
  • Does your hospital certify to perform retina surgery?
  • Am I a good patient for you to retina surgery?
  • Let me know success rates and how long time will take for recovery?
  • What treatment plan do you recommend and Why?
  • What are my options if I am not satisfied with the outcome of my treatment surgery?
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of retina surgery?
  • How long I have to stay in the hospital and outside the hospital?
  • What are the risk factors for this type of retina surgery?
  • When can I go for normal activities, including exercise?
  • Do I have stitches, staples, and/or bandages?
  • Do I have a scar or other permanent effects from the surgery?
  • What type of results can I expect?
  • Do I need to go to another surgery in the future?
  • Do I need any follow-up appointments or tests after my retina surgery?
