Retinal detachment initiates a complex series of cellular and molecular changes. Because of the difficulty in obtaining retinal tissue from patients with retinal detachments, most investigations of the cellular changes following retinal detachment have been carried out on animal models. Animal experiments suggest that the cellular response to retinal detachment may be broadly described as; partial dedifferentiation of retinal pigment epithelium cells, proliferation and migration of retinal… CONTINUE READING
