Kaşkaloğlu Eye Hospital Physicians Prof. Dr. Erkin Kır said that retinal tears may occur due to posterior vitreous detachment with age, and this may result in blindness if early diagnosis and treatment is not performed.

Stating that retinal tears occur more easily due to weak areas that may be in the retina, Kır said that this situation gains importance especially in people with high myopia and who have had a blow to the eye.

Explaining that sudden flashes of light and floating black dots in the eye are indicators of retinal tears, Prof. Dr. Erkin Kır noted that those who experience these symptoms should have an eye examination as soon as possible.


Giving the information that retinal tear can lead to retinal detachment if not treated, Prof. Dr. Erkin Kır stated that with the early detection of the disease, successful results were obtained with the argon laser.

Kır continued his words as follows: “After 5-6 minutes of laser intervention in retinal tears, the patient can return to his daily life. In retinal detachment, the patient may initially have good vision. However, it usually results in vision loss within days. Therefore, surgical treatment is required without wasting time. In surgical treatment, surgery called vitrectomy is the most common method. Success rates are quite high when applied without delay.
