341 Possible Causes for Progressive Loss of Vision, Retinal Detachment, Retinal Scar

  • Retinitis Pigmentosa

    Examinations revealed CNV with serous retinal detachment. She was treated with as-needed injections for 2 years; however, she experienced a recurrence.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 35-year-old man presented with history of painless, progressive loss of vision in the left eye for the past 7 years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There were 2 incidents of conjunctival erosion and 1 inferotemporal macula-on retinal detachment, which were successfully repaired, and 2 incidents of inadvertent damage to[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Macular Degeneration

    These abnormal blood vessels eventually scar, leading to permanent retinal damage and loss of central vision.[my.clevelandclinic.org] One month and 3 months after injection, she developed retinal detachments in the left and right eyes, respectively.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Both cause progressive central vision loss with intact peripheral vision.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Retinitis

    Two patients were not treated (patients 1 and 8), one of whom (patient 8) had received an autologous transplant and was diagnosed with atrophic retinal scarring compatible[academic.oup.com] However, the eye with the more fulminant involvement developed retinal detachment with a loss of vision.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A loss of side vision, or tunnel vision, is also common as RP progresses.[retinaspecialistsnw.com]

  • Retinal Detachment

    The scarring that results seals the retina to the underlying tissue, helping to prevent a retinal detachment.[aao.org] Overview of retinal detachment from eMedicine Guidelines from the American Academy of Family Physicians Retinal detachment information from WebMD Retinal detachment information[en.wikipedia.org] Peripheral vision is typically lost first, and vision loss spreads as the detachment progresses.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Retinopathy

    The scarring and bleeding can lead to retinal scarring or detachment from the back of the eye, resulting in vision loss. Why is retinopathy of prematurity a concern?[stanfordchildrens.org] CONCLUSIONS: Choroidal veins can be obliterated during retinal detachment surgery, especially when retinal breaks are posterior to the equator.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Over time this causes photoreceptor cells to die and progressive loss of vision results.[retinaaustralia.com.au]

  • Cytomegalovirus Retinitis

    Fibrovascular changes occurred in the CMV retinitis scar, were misdiagnosed as CMV retinitis reactivation, and were treated with anti-CMV medication.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Three control patients with CMV retinitis but no retinal detachment were selected for each case, matched by calendar date.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Here, we report a case of CMV retinitis in a young immunocompetent male who presented with history of progressive loss of vision in both eyes despite receiving oral and intra-vitreal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Retinal Perforation

    Similarly, in some people with retinal lesions such as lattice retinal degeneration or chorio-retinal scars, the vitreous membrane may be abnormally adherent to the retina[en.wikipedia.org] […] holes as a prophylaxis against retinal detachment.[ijo.in] The symptoms of retinal detachment due to retinal dialysis may be accompanied by visual field changes when the detachment progresses to the equator or by a loss of vision[autoaccident.com]

  • Central Retinal Vein Occlusion

    scars.[emedicine.medscape.com] […] after complicated retinal detachment surgery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] worsening, painless, monocular vision loss. 1,4 Evaluation and Treatment: Obtain visual acuity (vision often significantly reduced in the affected eye ( 20/200)). 2,3 Perform[emdocs.net]

  • Pars Planitis

    Yes, patients with chronic recurrent inflammation are at risk to develop retinal scarring, cataracts, peripheral retinal detachments and glaucoma.[eyesurgeonsnyc.com] To review and describe bullous retinoschisis and exudative retinal detachment in patients with pars planitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This may lead to blurred vision; dark, floating spots in the vision; and progressive vision loss.[xpertdox.com]

  • Stargardt Macular Degeneration

    The abnormal vessels may also produce large scars in the retina that may cause the underlying retina to detach (retinal detachment).[visiontechnology.com] In later stages of the disease, secondary pathology such as retinal detachment or hemorrhage may occur. There is no known cure for AMD.[lysoclear.com] Loss of photoreceptor cells leads to progressive vision loss in people with Stargardt macular degeneration.[ivami.com]
