Retinal Detachment

Retinal detachment means that the retina—a thin layer of nerve tissue at the back of your eye—has detached, or pulled away. This can lead to vision loss and blindness.

A retina can detach as a result of aging, an eye injury, inflammation, or some diseases such as diabetes. But many times there is no obvious cause.

Retinal detachment requires care right away. Surgery is the only way to reattach the retina.
