What is a Retinal Detachment?

Retinal Detachment image example

A retinal detachment is characterized by the displacement of the retina off the back wall of the eye. Retinal detachments occur when the sticky vitreous gel inside of the eye pulls on the retina in an aging eye and creates a tear in the “fabric” of the retina. The natural fluid of the eye then pours through the tear and creates a large pocket of fluid under the retina. When the retina is out of its normal position, it cannot work and vision is lost.

While a retinal detachment is not preventable, yearly exams can help detect when this condition might be present. Treating this condition quickly is the best course of action to prevent further damage to your eye.
