Tractional Retinal Detachment treatment in Fort Myers, Florida

Tractional Retinal Detachment near Fort Myers

Tractional retinal detachment’s are a different category of retinal detachment associated with fibrotic tissue pulling up on the retina.


Tractional retinal detachment’s are often related to severe diabetes in the eye.  They may also be due to trauma, family tendencies or proliferative vitreoretinopathy.


You may notice you do not have as much peripheral vision in the affected eye.  You may notice you have a dark area in your vision on top, bottom , or on a side of your vision. This is often described as a veil or curtain affecting your vision. Sometimes this follows an episode of flashing lights, or new floaters (dark spots). 


A retinal detachment is diagnosed during a dilated eye examination.  An optometrist, ophthalmologist, or retina surgeon may find the retina detachment, but only a retina surgeon can repair the damage and restore your vision. 


If the retinal detachment is diagnosed very early, it may be repaired with a laser treatment in a retina clinic. More advanced retinal detachments must be repaired with outpatient surgery. 


Some underlying eye conditions are known to have a higher incidence of retinal detachment.  In many cases, a laser treatment to weak or compromised areas of the peripheral retina may reduce the risk of retinal detachment.  Safety glasses and goggles help prevent trauma to the eye that can cause retinal detachment.  A healthy lifestyle and careful management of diabetes is helpful also.
