Retinal Detachment

Retinal Detachment - What it is

A retinal detachment occurs when the retina separates from the outer layers of the eye. The retina is the innermost layer at the back of the eye that detects light, and helps to form visual images, similar to the layer of film at the back of a camera. If not treated early, retinal detachment may lead to partial or complete permanent loss of vision.
