Retinal Tear

Retinal Tear - Treatments

Retinal tears are usually treated with laser treatment to prevent the retinal tear from developing into retinal detachment.

Laser treatment works by forming a scar around the retinal tear and prevents the vitreous from seeping through the tear.

Some retinal tears do not need treatment as they may not lead to retinal detachment. However they may still need to be observed and followed up to ensure that the retina remains stable.

Treatment of retinal tear is usually successful with a success rate of 95%. Early treatment of retinal tear can preserve normal vision and prevent severe vision loss.
