Retinal Detachment

Retinal Detachment is a serious condition which can lead to permanent vision loss if not treated. A retinal detachment is caused when a retinal tear allows fluid to pass behind the retina, lifting it from its normal position. Symptoms of a retinal detachment include flashing lights, floaters, curtain in vision, or significant decline in vision. Treatments for detachments may include laser therapy, pneumatic retinopexy, cryotherapy, scleral buckle, and vitrectomy.
