Retinal detachment or tear repair is an eye surgery to place a retina back into its normal position. The retina is the light sensitive film at the back of the eye. Retina detaches happen when the retina peels away from the inner wall of the eye.

Patients may be more likely to have retinal detachment if they are short-sighted, have had cataract surgery in the past or have suffered a severe direct blow to the eye. Some types of retinal detachment can run in families but these are rare. Most retinal detachments occur as a natural aging process in the eye. A detached retina is a serious and sight threatening event, occurring when the retina becomes separated from its underlying supportive tissue. The retina cannot function when these layers are detached. And unless the retina is reattached soon, permanent vision loss may result.
The surgeon will take medical history from the patient. He/she will run some tests and evaluate patient’s eyes for more information.
