Retinal Tears and Detachment in Bensalem, PA

Retinal tears and detachment are commonly triggered as the vitreous gel inside the eye begins to contract and deteriorate with age. This condition can also arise from incidents of eye trauma or following eye surgery. The shrinking vitreous gel can cling to the retina, pulling on it and potentially causing a tear that may advance to a detachment if not addressed. In patients with diabetes, retinal detachment can also occur due to damage in the eye's blood vessels. These events in the retina are not accompanied by pain, making it crucial to schedule a visit to IC Laser Eye Care or Suburban Eye Associates upon noticing symptoms, like new floaters, flashes of light, or a "curtain" shadowing part of your field of vision. Our board-certified ophthalmologists are committed to providing attentive care, conducting comprehensive eye exams, and offering the best medical and surgical treatments for retinal issues.

If you experience increased flashes or floaters, blurred vision, or difficulties with side vision, it's very important to arrange a consultation as soon as possible to avoid any damage. Catching a retinal tear early is necessary to prevent it from evolving into a complete detachment. For those diagnosed with a retinal tear, we provide laser treatments designed to encircle the tear with a protective barrier, preventing fluid from seeping through and causing further retina detachment. This technique dramatically reduces the likelihood of additional detachment. For the procedure, your eye will be numbed using anesthetic drops. A laser is then employed to fortify the area around the tear with the laser's light sealing the surrounding region to prevent fluid from undermining the retina. You may experience some minor discomfort and temporary blurred vision following your procedure.

Retinal tears refer to minor breaks in the retina's fabric, whereas retinal detachments signify a complete disconnection of the retinal tissue from the back part of the eye. The indicators for both a torn retina and a detached retina overlap and can encompass the following:

  • New floaters in the vision
  • Blurred vision
  • Regular occurrences of light flashes
  • Loss of side vision
  • Shadows or dark areas in your vision

Though the symptoms mirror each other, retinal detachments pose a greater risk, potentially leading to vision loss if not addressed promptly. If you observe any alterations in your vision, it's crucial to evaluate it immediately.

They are very professional and caring people.

I have been a patient of IC Laser on Knights Rd for the last 5 years and have always left satisfied and happy. I have gotten contacts, prescription glasses and eye check-ups and all of those services have been exceptional. Picking out glasses is not an easy thing because you want your glasses to look right with the shape of your face. Dianna the Optician is super nice, very knowledgeable and patient with me every time I visit. She has even made my 6 year old nephew feel confident and cool in his first pair of glasses! I definitely recommend checking this place out for all your vision needs.
