Retina covers inside of the eyeball. It consists of ends of nerves that allow us to see when capturing natural impulse of the eye. If a rent has happened in retina it can detach from the back wall of the eyeball, as a result vision gets worse or even is lost.
If tear of retina is diagnosed in due time, it can be prevented with the help of laser, thus not allowing the retina to detach.
If detachment has already happened, laser can't be used - a surgical intervention is necessary. Therefore it is crucial to establish tear of retina as soon as possible.
Signs of tear:
- Sudden flashes of light;
- Flies or dots in the vision field.
