Retinal Detachment

What is Retinal Detachment?

Retinal detachment is a serious condition that occurs when the retina separates from the outer layers of the eye. As the retina separates, the supply of oxygen and nourishment normally supplied from the blood vessels is cut off. Consequently, permanent and rapid vision loss can occur within a short amount of time. Retinal detachment is an medical emergency that requires immediate attention from an eye specialist.

Retinal detachment usually occurs after retinal tears have developed in the eye.
