A retinal detachment is a serious condition that occurs when the retina separated from its underlying tissue in the back of the eye. Since the retina can’t work properly under these conditions, permeant vision loss may occur if a retinal detachment is not repaired promptly.
Symptoms: sudden burst of floaters with flashes of lights,
dark shadow restricting some or all of the vison, vision loss
Treatments: The most common way to surgically repair the retina a surgery called a vitrectomy with or without a scleral buckle. Other treatments for retinal detachments can include laser surgery, cryosurgery, or pneumatic retinopexy
