Retinal Detachment

A retinal detachment (RD) refers to the condition where the retina gets lifted off or separates from its original position. A retinal detachment can occur at any age and is more likely to occur in people who have:

  • Extremely high short-sightedness (myopia)
  • Prior history of retinal detachment
  • Family history of retinal detachment
  • Posterior vitreous detachment (PVD) – vitreous slowly shrinks and separates from the retinal surface
  • Trauma to the eye
  • Diabetes
  • Complications from cataract surgery

Symptoms include sudden onset of:

  • Increased number of floaters
  • Increased flashes of light
  • Loss of peripheral or side vision
  • Appearance of curtain-like shadow covering the vision

If not treated immediately, RD can cause permanent vision loss.
