What is Retinal Detachment?

Retinal detachment in Turkey is a serious and vision-threatening event, which occurs when the retina separates from its underlying supporting tissue. The retina cannot function when these layers are detached. Unless the retina is quickly attached, permanent vision loss can result.

How it works ?

What are the symptoms?

If only a small part of your retina has become detached, you may not have any symptoms.

But if your entire retina is detached, you may not be able to see as clearly as normal, and you may notice other sudden symptoms, including:

  • The appearance of a black veil on the whole or part of the visual field of the eye concerned;
  • A flash of light appears in the field of vision. It is always in the same place, even though the eyes are closed;
  • Image distortion: the straight lines become curved;


Retinal detachment can be a medical emergency. If you have symptoms, it is important to go to your eye doctor or the emergency room right away.

Symptoms of retinal detachment often appear quickly. If not treated immediately, more of the retina can become detached, increasing the risk of permanent vision loss or blindness.

What are the causes?

An injury to the eyes or face can cause the retina detach, as can very high levels of myopia. Extremely short-sighted people have longer eyeballs with thinner retinas that are more likely to come off.

In rare cases, a retinal detachment can occur after LASIK surgery in very myopic people. Cataract surgery, tumors, eye diseases and systemic diseases like diabetes and sickle cell anemia can also cause retinal detachments.

Treatment of retinal detachment in Turkey and Istanbul

Surgery is necessary to repair the retina. The procedure is usually performed by a retina specialist - an ophthalmologist with advanced training in medical and surgical treatment of retinal disorders.

Surgical procedures used to treat a detached retina include:

  • The scleral looping operation: This is the most common retinal detachment surgery. It involves attaching a small strip of silicone or plastic to the outside of the eye. This band attaches the eye inward, which reduces the traction of the retina and thus allows the retina to attach to the inner wall of the eye. The scleral loop is linked to the posterior part of the eye and is invisible after surgery. Scleral closure surgery is often combined with one of the following procedures to merge the retina with its underlying supporting tissue (called the pigment retinal epithelium EP).
  • Vitrectomy: In this procedure, the clear fluid is removed from the posterior chamber of the eye and replaced with clear silicone oil to push the detached part of the retina back onto the PE.
  • Pneumatic retinopexy: the surgeon injects a small gas bubble into the vitreous body to push the detached part of the retina onto the PE.

The Cost of Retinal Detachment Surgery in Turkey & Istanbul

The prices of Turquie santé website include the surgeon's fees and the costs of the anesthesiologist and the initial consultation with the surgeon. The duration of postoperative care is different for each surgical intervention. Therefore, your surgeon will inform you during the initial consultation of the amount of postoperative care covered by the price.

Frequently asked questions
  • Floaters appear in the visual field.
  • Glare (phosphene).
  • Decreased visual acuity.
  • Decreased field of vision (appearance of a scotoma).

Detachment of the retina requires immediate surgical management.
During the operation, the surgeon creates a scar between the retina and the choroid by applying cold nitrogen. Then, to glue the two retinal sheets back together, there are two techniques:

  • Indentation: the surgeon directly glues the retinal layers together;
  • Pneumatic retinopexy: The surgeon injects a gas which exerts pressure on the retina allowing it to remain stuck.

Reuniting the retina surgically does not mean immediate vision recovery. A slight decrease in visual acuity will be seen after the operation.

The success rate of retina reattachment surgery in Turkey is 90%.
