Living With Retinal Detachment
I had a question the other day about retinal detachment.
Retinal detachment is a very serious eye condition when your retina separates from the tissue around it.
Since your retina can’t work properly under these conditions, you could permanently lose vision if it isn’t fixed promptly.
You’re more likely to get a detached retina if you:
>Are severely nearsighted
>Have had an eye injury or cataract surgery
>Have a family history of retinal detachment
Retinal tears (although different from a retinal detachment) are often the first stage leading to a retinal detachment.
If fluid from within your eye passes through a retinal tear, it can separate your retina from its underlying tissue — and that’s retinal detachment.
Retinal detachment may happen with no warning, but often there are retinal tear warning symptoms of flashes and floaters.
If treated during the retinal tear stage, before full detachment, a simple office procedure prevents the need for a more serious retinal detachment operation.
A detached retina doesn’t hurt, so look for these symptoms:
>Flashes of light
>Seeing “floaters” (small flecks or threads)
>Darkening of your peripheral (side) vision
Early diagnosis is key to preventing vision loss from a detached retina.
To deal with retinal detachment it’s beneficial to:
*Drink 6-8 cups of purified water daily. Avoid fluoridated and chlorinated water.
*Bilberry extract, taken orally, supplies bioflavonoids that help remove toxic chemicals from the retina of your eye.
*Ginkgo biloba improves microcapillary circulation. (Don’t take if you have a bleeding disorder, or are scheduled for surgery or a dental procedure.)
*Increase your consumption of green leafy vegetables – especially collard greens, kale, mustard greens, spinach, and turnip greens – legumes, and yellow vegetables. Also, flavonoid-rich berries – like blueberries and blackberries – cherries, and foods rich in vitamins E and C, like raw fruits and vegetables.
*Follow a low-glycemic-load diet. It can reduce the risk of cataracts by 77%. Such a diet is rich in fruits and vegetables, low-fat dairy products, and proteins (meat and vegetable sources). It has smaller amounts of whole grains, refined grains, and sugars.
*Avoid dairy products, saturated fats, and any fats or oils that have been subjected to heat, whether by cooking or processing. These foods promote formation of free radicals, which can damage the lens. Use cold-pressed vegetable oils only. Get calcium and vitamin D from other sources like soymilk or supplements.
*Avoid direct sunlight. Wear a wide-brimmed hat when outdoors, and protect your eyes by wearing sunglasses (polarized) that block ultraviolet rays. Make sure the sunglasses are large enough to adequately protect your eyes.
*Eliminate toxic cosmetics, eye care, and personal care products.
*Eliminate toxic household and laundry cleaners.
*Eliminate poor air quality, which could be irritating.
