Are there surgeries to repair eye injury in the fovea centralis?

Are there surgeries to repair eye injury in the fovea centralis?

Maybe: The fovea is the most sensitive part of the eye, responsible for sharp detail vision. Macular translocation surgery moves the fovea to another part of the eye in cases of certain macular diseases, but the success rate is mixed, and the surgery is risky. Discuss all options with your ophthalmologist. ...Read more

Vitrectomy eye surgery if macula hole retinal detachment?

Vitrectomy eye surgery if macula hole retinal detachment?

Yes: Most common procedure to repair a retinal detachment resulting from a macular hole is a vitrectomy (remove the fluids from the back of the eyeball), replace it with a gas, and position the patient face down for some period of time (sometimes weeks) to allow the hole to close and the detachment to resolve. Most macular holes do not cause a detached retina, but many require a similar operation. ...Read more

Are there any surgeries to repair eye injury in the fovea centralis?

Are there any surgeries to repair eye injury in the fovea centralis?

Possibly: The fovea is the most delicate part of the eye. 90% of all vision fibers connect to this tiny area. There are new amazing surgeries to repair conditions like macular holes that once led to blindness, & treatments for wet macular degeneration that would affect the fovea. However, mechanical injury, solar, laser, or welding burns to the fovea would probably be beyond repair w/ current technology. ...Read more

Hole in Retina: An rd is usually caused by a hole or tear in the retina or from membranes pulling on the retina.

Why do post-cataract surgery retinal detachments occur? Is there some retinal pulling involved from posterior vitreous detachment (pvd)?

Why do post-cataract surgery retinal detachments occur? Is there some retinal pulling involved from posterior vitreous detachment (pvd)?

Destabilization: The natural lens and its supports stabilize the front of the eye and vitreous. Removal of the thick natural lens and substitution with a thin artificial lens, increases the chance for the vitreous to move in ways that can destabilize the attachments of the vitreous over the retina. If there are weak places, this can increase the chance of detachment, even in the best of cataract surgeries. ...Read more

Can there be a damaged optic nerve after retina detachment surgery?

Can there be a damaged optic nerve after retina detachment surgery?

Unfortunately yes: Retinal detachment often disrupts the supply of blood to the retina. This can result in loss of pressure control, glaucoma and optic nerve damage. Rd surgery often involves a vitrectomy, removal of the vitreous humor from the eye. Optic nerve damage can result from such surgery. Caught and appropriately treated early, rd should not result in damage to the optic nerve. ...Read more

3 weeks out cataract surgery.  First, blurry vision, droopy eyelid, & now torn retina.  Can it all be repaired? What does it involve?

Yes: Surgery can repair the droopy eyelid as well as the torn retina. It depends on what is causing the droopy eyelid to determine what treatment works the best.
