Detached retina treatment

Retina detachment occurs when the retina becomes separated from its surrounding tissue.

When this occurs, it is important that it is repaired, as the retina cannot function correctly in this condition, and leaving it untreated can result in the permanent loss of vision.

Retinas can become detached from the eyes as a result of an eye injury or cataract surgery and are often caused by retina tears.

Retinas can become detached without any signs or symptoms however, many patients may experience some signs of a detached retina if they are seeing flashes of light or small flecks, or if their peripheral vision is darkened.
