  • scleral
  • Dynamic scleral depression during indirect ophthalmoscopy may help the surgeon to see the retinal breaks and distinguish them from other lesions. (aao.org)
  • posterior
  • Cortical remnants, posterior capsular opacification, and optical aberrations from the margins of an intraocular lens (IOL) can interfere with the visibility of retinal breaks. (aao.org)
  • occurs
  • The loss of vision may not be noticed if the detachment only occurs in one eye as the animal may compensate for the loss of vision by using the good eye. (usask.ca)
  • Retinal detachment occurs when the light-sensitive membrane (retina) in the back of the eye separates from its supporting layers. (sbwire.com)
  • The authors describe the changes observed and note that retinal plasticity is acute and likely occurs quickly enough that it may explain persistent vision loss post-reattachment. (utah.edu)
  • diagnosis
  • We recommend performing retinal reattachment as soon as possible after the diagnosis of detachment. (usask.ca)
  • Next to central retinal artery occlusion, chemical burns to the eye, and endophthalmitis, a retinal detachment is one of the most time-critical eye emergencies encountered in the ED. Retinal detachment (RD) was first recognized in the early 1700s by de Saint-Yves, but clinical diagnosis remained elusive until Helmholtz invented the ophthalmoscope in 1851. (medscape.com)
  • In September of that year, he had a diagnosis of dislocated cataract and subtotal retinal detachment. (aao.org)
