Thank you for the reply and additional information.
It is very unfortunate that you have had this retinal detachment in the left eye. Since you have only recently been diagnosed with diabetes, it is not likely to be the cause of the spontaneous retinal detachment. Other conditions which can predispose a person to spontaneous retinal detachment are short sightedness( myopia
) and trauma or injury to the eye( even blunt trauma can cause this).
Wave like pattern seen in your right eye could be due to either ocular migraine
( headache may or maynot be present) or due to retinal cause or due to posterior vitreous
detachment(PVD). To know the exact cause out of these possibilities, a dilated eye exam has to be done by an ophthalmologist
. Once confirmed further line of treatment can be considered. If the dilated eye exam shows a normal attached retina and no other lesion, then the possibility of PVD is very high. In this condition the thick gel at the back of the eye gets detached from its surrounding retina. This can result in a variety of symptoms such as waves/lines/cobweb patterns/spots/circles or even flashes of light
or floaters. This condition as such does not require any specific treatment. Only if peripheral retina shows any tears or holes, then laser treatment is needed to seal them. If no such problem is seen then it is best left alone.Thank you and best wishes.
