Laser Treatment of Retinal Tears / Holes
How Our Los Angeles Eye Surgeon Can Help
The development of small holes or even tears in the peripheral retina is a very common occurrence which usually exists without any symptoms, and unfortunately remains undetected in a high percentage of patients. The danger in developing holes / tears in the retina is that they can lead to a frank retinal detachment, which may lead to complete blindness if not treated in a timely manner. A retinal detachment is a true medical emergency.
At an early stage, these tears / holes can be treated using laser, which may prevent the need for surgery altogether.
Dr. Soroudi - a respected Los Angeles laser eye surgeon - possesses the necessary diagnostic equipment and lasers in-house to treat such emergencies. If you suffer from sudden floaters or flashes of light, make an appointment for a complete dilated ophthalmic evaluation; this may save your eye from going blind.
