Retinal Detachment and Treatment? The retina, a light-sensitive layer at the back of your eye, plays a crucial role in translating visual information into the stunning tapestry of images we experience. When this delicate layer detaches from its underlying support structure, retinal detachment occurs, posing a serious threat to vision. Thankfully, Dr. Nishant Taneja, a leading vitreoretinal surgeon in Tirana, Albania, offers expert diagnosis and treatment for this sight-threatening condition.
Think of the retina as a thin film glued to the wall of a dark room. In retinal detachment, tears or breaks develop in this film, allowing fluid to accumulate behind it, like water seeping beneath wallpaper. This disrupts the retina’s vital function, causing symptoms like floaters, flashes of light, and blurred or distorted vision. Early detection and prompt intervention are crucial to minimize vision loss.
Fortunately, Dr. Taneja, with his extensive experience and advanced surgical skills, offers a range of minimally invasive procedures to repair retinal detachment and restore vision. Here are some key techniques:
Surgeons can employ two primary methods, scleral buckling and pars plana vitrectomy, either separately or in combination during retinal reattachment surgery. Scleral buckling entails suturing a silicone tire or sponge onto the white of the eye (sclera) to maintain retinal attachment by altering the flow of fluid within the eye. Surgeons address retinal holes or tears during the procedure using cryotherapy (freezing).
Vitrectomy, a micro-keyhole surgery, involves the removal of the vitreous gel. Surgeons identify and treat causative retinal tears and remove fluid from beneath the retina. At the surgery’s conclusion, the eye is injected with gas or silicone oil to sustain retinal attachment. While gas is reabsorbed by the eye, oil necessitates a second surgery for removal. Patients are typically advised to adopt specific posturing for up to 20 days after surgery, tailored to each case.
Surgeons generally perform retinal detachment surgery under local anesthesia with sedation.
The choice of procedure depends on the severity and type of retinal detachment, Dr. Taneja’s careful assessment, and your individual circumstances.
Following surgery, Dr. Taneja closely monitors your recovery, providing comprehensive post-operative care and regular follow-up appointments. This ensures proper healing, detects any complications early on, and adjusts treatment if needed.
