Pneumatic Retinopexy

banner

If a detachment occurs in the retina, treatment may begin soon after the exam. Pneumatic retinopexy is a procedure that pushes a detached retina back into place by injecting a gas bubble into the vitreous. As the bubble rises, it presses the retina back into place. The bubble is usually absorbed into the eye within 1 to 3 weeks. This procedure can be used only for certain types of detachments.
