What is Intraretinal cyst?

Intraretinal cysts are the most relevant prognostic biomarker in neovascular age-related macular degeneration independent of the therapeutic strategy. Br J Ophthalmol.

Is a retina repairable?

Most of the time, the retina can be reattached with one operation. However, some people will need several surgeries. More than 9 out of 10 detachments can be repaired. Failure to repair the retina always results in loss of vision to some degree.

Can you see retinal detachment with ophthalmoscope?

The direct (hand-held) ophthalmoscope is useful to detect an altered red reflex sometimes associated with retinal detachment. However, because its view is narrow, a normal examination with the direct ophthalmoscope cannot exclude a diagnosis of retinal detachment.

Can you see retinal detachment on Fundoscopic exam?

When visualizing the fundus on the slit lamp or using indirect ophthalmoscopy, you will be checking for retina that appears separated from the normal structure of the eye. In the case of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment, you may see a large bullous separation of the retina.

What causes sub retinal fluid?

Subretinal fluid (SRF) from the choroid enters the subretinal space through damaged pigment epithelium caused by inflammation or tumour. In the ‘uveal effusion syndrome’ shifting subretinal fluid is the typical feature.

Can you reverse retinal damage?

In many cases, damage that has already occurred can’t be reversed, making early detection important. Your doctor will work with you to determine the best treatment. Treatment of retinal disease may be complex and sometimes urgent.

Is retinal surgery painful?

How long can a retina be detached before blindness?

Less than 40% of macula off detachments of > or =6 weeks duration will achieve a vision of 6/12 or better compared with 68.2% of patients with macula off detachments of < or =1 week. Conclusions: The best mean postoperative vision (LogMAR 0.35) was seen in patients with detachment of <1 week duration.

Why do people get cysts?
