Dark Circles On The View After Retinal Detachment Surgery?
Good afternoon, my dad has detached his retina a few weeks ago, and had surgery a week ago. Last night my father vomited because of stomach acid (maybe), and now even the eyes that have been operated on are dark circles. what do you think about that? Does the retina that has been operated on (gel) come off again?
Retinal detachment is called retinal detachment. This condition is triggered by retinal thinning and aging, eye injury, diabetes, and reduced vitreous production. Retinal detachment can cause complaints in the form of floaters / seeing like threads, such as seeing cobwebs, flashes of light, blurred vision, reduced side vision, and blindfolded vision.
The ophthalmologist will perform an examination with an ophthalmoscope, slit lamp, tonometry, and if necessary an ultrasound examination. The treatment of retinal detachment is surgery, cryopexy, and photocoagulation.
After surgery, the doctor will give you instructions during the recovery period, such as sleeping positions and how to care for your eyes. Usually after 2 weeks it is recommended to return to control.
Surgery for retinal detachment has a risk of complications, such as increased eye pressure, bleeding in the eye, detached retina, limited vision, shadowed vision, and inflammation of the eye.
If your papa is currently experiencing post-operative complaints, including complaints of dark circles, I suggest that your papa control returns to the eye doctor so that further examinations can be carried out to find out the cause of the appearance of dark circles on his vision and provide more appropriate follow-up treatment. It is better not to delay contact to an eye doctor so that if there are complications, you can immediately treat them.
Hope it can help you,
