Retinal Detachment Directory
Retinal detachment is a very serious condition that occurs when the retina pulls away from its supporting eye tissues. Since the retina can't work properly under these conditions, permanent vision loss may occur if a detachmentisn't repaired within 24-72 hours. There is no pain associated with retinal detachment, but if you notice vision problems -- such as seeing flashes of light, floaters, or a darkening of your peripheral vision -- contact your eye doctor immediately. Early diagnosis is key to preventing vision loss associated with a detached retina.
