What is it called when you have eye surgery where the bag of fluid behind the eye is removed?

Vitrectomy: Removal of the vitreous, the material that fills the eye behind the lens and in front of the retina, is done for a number of reasons, including bleeding, infection, to treat or prevent retina detachment and rarely to remove floaters from the eye if they are severely disabling.

Where/what leaks: There are many causes for leaking of fluid in the retina. Treatment depends on the underlying cause, and location, of the leak. Fluorescein angiography and optical coherence tomography (oct) are the main tools used to determine the cause and location of the leak, and the best treatment.

Complete exam: Your eye doctor is trying to evaluate the source of the fluid. Fluorescein angiography maps the blood vessels in the back of the eye and can show if fluid is leaking from any of the vessels. It will help them with diagnosing and treating the fluid. Good luck.

I have detached retina in r eye and short sight in l eye when the sun is behind someone iam talkin too I can't see there face would sunglasses help?

Sunglasses…: …are always a good idea when outdoors in sunlight to protect your eyes from uv rays. You want good ones that block both uva & uvb & have lenses that don't distort your vision. Are you under the care of an ophthalmologist? If not, i'd highly advise seeing one for the detached retina problem.

What are black. Dots behind the eye a sign of?

Floaters: Usually black spots in your vision are components of the vitreous humor that's normally found in the back of your eye. As you age, the vitreous breaks down and you see the edges of it. This usually is not a sign of a problem unless you have a lot of sudden floaters or flashes as well.

What could cause bleeding behind the eye?

What could cause bleeding behind the eye?

Do you mean back?: The most common bleeding in the back of the eye (at the retina) is due to diabetes and vascular anomalies. This can be more likely if blood thinners are in the mix. Less common conditions are parasitic infections and some inherited conditions. Trauma of course is also common. If you truly mean 'behind' the eye ball, then this rare event is usually traumatic or do to blood vessel disease.

Sinus or worse: Most pain and pressure in or around an eye is from sinusitis or headache. Pain reliever and decongestant should relieve it. If not, or if it is getting worse, go see your doctor. It could also be due to an eye problem such an inflammation in (called uveitis) or around the eye. You need to see an eye doctor to really rule this out.

Uveitis: Injury to the eye an cause inflammation in the front, anterior uveitis and sometimes the back if the eye? Posterior uveitis. Untreated anterior uveitis will result in potentially blinding cataracts (clouding of the lens through which light must past and be focused) and glaucoma (high pressure in the eye). Your friend needs to be under a doctors care.
