The Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is the most common ocular infection for people with HIV. Untreated CMV retinitis can lead to permanent vision loss and blindness. Early diagnosis and treatment is crucial for saving sight. Antibiotics and surgically implanted medication pellets are effective treatments for CMV retinitis. On occasion, CMV can lead to retinal detachment. Retinal detachment is treated with lasers, eye surgery, and a special substance called silicone oil.
