Retinal Surgery

Retinal surgeries performed in dogs include retinal reattachment, barrier retinopexy, and prophylactic retinopexy. Retinal reattachment surgery is only completed by a few board certified veterinary ophthalmologists in the world. Fortunately, Dr. Holmberg worked with one of these renowned ophthalmologists for one year and therefore has an excellent understanding of these procedures. While he does not perform retinal reattachment surgery, he does frequently perform barrier and prophylactic retinopexies. Both of these procedures involve using a diode laser on an indirect head set. The laser is used to "spot-weld" the retina to the underlying choroid to either prevent further retinal detachment (in the case of a retinal tear) or to prevent future detachment in predisposed dog breeds.
