What is Retinal detachment?

Retinal detachment if caused is a condition where the delicate tissue at the back of the eye becomes detached from its normal position, leading to a loss of vision. Without prompt treatment, these small holes can rapidly progress, causing severe vision impairment or even blindness.

Sources in the party also said that Chadha was recommended to have this operation done in the UK under the guidance of a senior doctor. Giving further update on him, they said that presently his eye condition is stable with no loss to vision.

Parineeti and Raghav tied the knot on September 24 at the Leela Palace Hotel in Rajasthan's Udaipur in the presence of close friends and family members. It was attended by several well-known faces of the entertainment industry and politicians.

Meanwhile, in other news, The Enforcement Directorate today has issued a ninth summon to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and asked him to appear before the federal agency on March 21 in the excise policy case. Earlier on 16 March, the AAP supremo was granted bail by Delhi's Rouse Avenue court against arrest for skipping probe agency summons on a bail bond of 15,000 and a surety of 1 lakh in the money laundering case. So far, Kejriwal has skipped eight summons issued by the Enforcement Directorate in connection with the excise policy case.
