Laser Retinopexy

 If a retinal tear or detachment occurs, there are several options for treatment. Laser is used to make small burns around the retinal tear or the small detachment area. The natural recovery from the laser burns results in sealing the retina to the eye wall. This prevents the tear or the small detachment to evolve into a complete retinal detachment and loss of vision can be avoided. This procedure can be performed in the office.
