Riwa Singh

AAP MP Raghav Chadha has been diagnosed with retinal detachment, an eye ailment for the cure of which he is going to the UK.

It is a serious eye disease that needs a quick medical consultation.

The retina is the part of the eye that is positioned at the back of it and acts as the surface where the image is reflected.

When this retina is separated from the back of the eye, the surface where reflection happens is partially or completely lost, depending on the level of detachment.

This detachment causes deprivation of oxygen, blood flow, and hence the vision.

In the initial symptoms, the patient suffers from blurred vision or partial vision as if a curtain has been put on the vision.

There can be many causes for the disease ranging from a hole to a tear in the retina. The disease can also be caused due to scar tissue growth on the retina surface.

Previous severe eye injury, aging, family history or previous retinal detachment in one eye are the risk factors for retinal detachment.
