Some retinal tears can be left alone, and will never need to be treated by our ophthalmologist. However, there are retinal tears that will need to be corrected by retinal surgery in Oceanside. Our retina specialist will need to examine your particular situation and let you know which type of treatment option is best for you. The retina is the part of the eye that is actually responsible for creating the images that you see. A retinal tear can lead to retinal detachments. When this happens, the retina separates from the back wall of the eye, and is no longer able to access its blood supply. When the retina remains detached, it will degenerate and no longer be able to function. If you experience symptoms of retinal tears you will want to come into our practice right away to determine the extent of the problem. Symptoms of retinal tears include a sudden increased number of floaters; the feeling that you have something in the eye but there is nothing there to be causing that sensation, or problems with vision such as a dark curtain appearing over part of your sight.
When caught in time, 90% of retinal detachments can be repaired by our ophthalmologist using a single procedure. There are three different surgical approaches that can be used to treat retinal detachments. Should it be determined that you have this problem, our retina specialist will discuss these options with for retinal surgery in Oceanside; he will also let you know which type of surgery will work best in your particular case.
