About Choroidal Detachment:

Choroidal detachment is a type of disease which refers to the separation of the choroid from the sclera and it is happened because of the leakage of fluid from vessels within the choroid. This disease is somewhat similar to retinal detachment but it is different only because of its solid appearance, even surface, and manifestation of standard retinal vessels with color untouched.

Choroidal detachment usually attacks when the choroid separates from the sclera which may be result from intraocular surgery, a severe contusion, hypotony, or from a vascular disease. Doctors often prescribe for Ophthalmoscopic examination which can communicate about the dark, convex, smoothly rounded elevations of both the retina and the choroid and therefore doctors can understand the attack of this disease.

Symptoms of Choroidal Detachment:

Some of the important symptoms can be found of this disease are inflammation, infection, cataract formation, and corneal edema. However, these are not common symptoms. The patients also may get sudden decrease of vision.
