What Sets Us Apart

Retinal detachment is a serious condition in which the eye’s retina—the layer of nerve tissue in the back of the eye—peels away from the underlying supportive tissue. This deprives the retina of nourishment, which can permanently damage it. Retinal detachment is considered an urgent medical condition. If not treated, it can cause irreversible loss of vision. 

NYU Langone ophthalmologists can quickly pinpoint the cause of retinal detachment and create a treatment plan that preserves the health of the affected eye.

Treatment at NYU Langone

NYU Langone specialists offer several treatment strategies to prevent vision loss. Laser procedures can repair a tear in the retina and stop a detachment or prevent a small detachment from becoming bigger. If a retinal detachment is large, our doctors may recommend surgery.
