Retinal detachment

Updated: 2017-06-13


Retinal detachment is an emergency. Tissue at the back of the eye (the retina) pulls away from a layer of blood vessels that provide necessary oxygen and nourishment.


The appearance of many bits of debris (floaters), sudden flashes of light, or a shadow in the vision field are symptoms.


Prompt medical treatment can save vision in the eye.
