Retinal Detachment and Repair
This exhibit depicts four sagittal conditions of the eye. The pre-accident conditions include prior cataract removal with lens replacement, and a repaired retinal tear. Post-accident, the retina is torn and completely detached from the uveal tissues. The vitreous fluid is pigmented and hazy. Retinal repair is accomplished through the placement of a scleral buckle, injection of a gas bubble, replacement of vitreous fluid, and laser closure of the tear.
