Retinal Surgery and Procedures

Retinal Laser Surgery

Retinal laser surgery is used to treat a variety of problems including retinal tears, retinal holes, small retinal detachments and leaking blood vessels in the back of the eye. The laser generates a light source that is directed through a special contact lens or ophthalmoscope. As the light reaches the problem area to be treated, it begins to heat up. The body responds to heal the area and in so doing, a seal is created. Laser surgery is frequently performed in the office of the surgeon, but it is also utilized during other complicated retinal procedures in an outpatient surgical area.
