Retinal Detachment - Diagnosis

The following tests, instruments and procedures may be needed to diagnose retinal detachment.

  • Ophthalmoscope. The ophthalmologist may use an instrument with a bright light and a special lens to examine the inside of your eye. The ophthalmoscope provides a highly detailed 3D view, allowing the ophthalmologist to see any retina holes, tears or detachments.
  • Ultrasonography. This test uses sound waves to create a picture on a video monitor. The sound waves travel through your eye and bounce off your retina and other structures within the eye to create the image.
