Curtain In Vision Treatment In Albuquerque

Addressing the Symptom of a 'Curtain' in Vision

Experiencing a sensation of a ‘curtain’ falling over part of your field of vision is a symptom that warrants immediate medical attention. At our clinic, we are equipped to diagnose and treat this serious visual disturbance promptly and efficiently.

Understanding the 'Curtain' Symptom

This symptom, often described as a shadow or dark curtain obscuring part of the visual field, can indicate a range of eye health issues, most notably retinal detachment or a blockage in the blood vessels supplying the retina. It’s a condition that requires urgent care to prevent permanent vision loss.

Our Diagnostic Process

Upon experiencing a ‘curtain’ in your vision, our approach includes:

Immediate Examination

We prioritize your appointment to address this urgent symptom. A comprehensive eye examination is conducted to assess the overall health of your eyes and vision. Dilating the pupils allows us a better view of the internal structures of the eye, particularly the retina, which is crucial for diagnosing issues like retinal detachment.

Specialized Imaging Tests

Depending on the initial examination, we may use imaging techniques such as Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), fundus photography or ultrasound to obtain detailed images of the retina.

Assessment of Risk Factors

We also consider any underlying risk factors you may have, such as high myopia, previous eye surgeries, or trauma, which can increase the likelihood of
retinal issues.

Responding to the Cause

If a retinal detachment is diagnosed, prompt treatment is essential. This may involve laser surgery, cryotherapy, scleral buckle or a vitrectomy, depending on the extent and location of the detachment. For vascular blockages, treatment focuses on addressing the underlying cause and may involve intravitreal injections.
