Treatment of Retinal Tears

If you suddenly notice floaters – or a sharp increase in floaters – in your vision, it could mean a tear in your retina (the focusing surface at the back of your eye).

The retinal specialists will quickly be able to tell you if you have a retinal tear after you undergo a through dilated examination of fundus.

If treatment is recommended, this can involve laser or freezing treatment (cryotherapy) to ‘weld’ down the tear, reducing the chance of retinal detachment.

It’s a simple procedure that causes little or no discomfort, and you’ll be free to go home almost straight away.
