Retinal Detachment is a very serious condition that occurs when the retina pulls away from its supporting tissue. This is often caused by injury or Diabetic Retinopathy and can cause permanent vision loss if it is not repaired quickly. Immediate emergency eye care attention is required.
Some risk factors may include: family history, diabetes, cataract surgery, extreme nearsightedness, and age of 65 or older.
Retinal Detachments are often treated by a laser. Each case is treated individually depending upon complexity and location of the detachment.
