Retinal Detachment

Retinal detachment is the separation of the retina from the underlying layer of support tissue. Initial detachment may be localized, but without rapid treatment the entire retina may detach, leading to vision and blindness. It is a medical emergency. Surgery is required to place the retina back into its proper position.

The symptoms of retinal detachment can include some of the following:

  • Flashes of light
  • A sudden dramatic increase in the number of floaters
  • A slight feeling of heaviness in the eye
  • A dense shadow that starts in the peripheral vision and slowly progresses towards the central vision
  • An impression that a veil or curtain was drawn over the field of vision
  • Straight lines that suddenly appear curved
  • Central vision loss
