Retinal detachment requires care right away. Without treatment, vision loss can progress from minor to severe or even to blindness within a few hours or days. Only surgery can repair retinal detachment.Best treatment for Retinal detachment is 3d- ENDOSCOPIC VITRECTOMY
Retinal Detachment is a separation of the retina ( Retina is an extremely thin tissue that lines the inside of the back of the eye) from its attachments to the underlying tissue within the eye (separation of the neurosensory retina from the underlying retinal pigment epithelium).
Most retinal detachments are a result of a retinal break, hole, or tear. Most retinal breaks, holes, or tears are not the result of trauma, but are due to preexisting factors such as high levels of myopia and prior ocular surgery.
The areas where the retina is detached lose this blood supply and stop working, so you lose vision.In certain inflammatory conditions or other disorders, fluid also can accumulate beneath the retina without a tear or break.
Diabetes can lead to a type of retinal detachment that is caused by pulling on the retina (traction) alone, without a tear. Because of abnormal blood vessels and scar tissue on the retinal surface in some people suffering from Diabetes.
The following factors increase your risk of retinal detachment:
Aging : retinal detachment is more common in people older than age 40;Previous retinal detachment in one eye;A family history of retinal detachment;Extreme nearsightedness (myopia);Previous severe eye injury or trauma;Previous other eye disease or disorder;Previous eye surgery, such as cataract removal or corneal grafting or Lasik or femto Lasik or Hd -Lasik can lead retinal deatchment & macular detachment.
Retinal detachment symptoms
Generally there is no pain except in injury cases.
The sudden appearance of many floaters, small bits of debris in your field of vision that look like spots, hairs or strings and seem to float before your eyes.Sudden flashes of light in the affected eye.A shadow or curtain over a portion of your visual field that develops as the detachment progresses
Best retinal deatchment Treatment
Early diagnosis and repair are urgent since visual improvement is much greater when the retina is repaired before the macula or central area is detached. The surgical repair of a retinal detachment is usually successful in reattaching the retina, although more than one procedure may be necessary. Once the retina is reattached, vision usually improves and then stabilizes. Successful reattachment does not always result in normal vision. The ability to read after successful surgery will depend on whether or not the macula (central part of the retina) was detached and the extent of time that it was detached.
Best treatment for Retinal detachment in delhi is 3d- ENDOSCOPIC VITRECTOMY
World's first 3d Endoscopic vitrectomy Centre is Guru Gobind Singh International Eye centre
ENDOSCOPIC VITRECTOMY IN RETINAL DETACHMENT SURGERY

ii. Giant Retinal Tear and Detachment
why Endoscopic vitrectomy?
Endoscopy provides 360° panoramic visualization of structures inside eye which is not possible with any other method. Endoscopy- assisted vitrectomy allows to perform the closest eradication of problem inside eye and hidden structures which are not vissible with conventional vitrectomy
