Retinal Detachment

Retinal Detachment

Detachment of the retina is a separation of the retina by sub-retinal fluid. The detachment of the rhegmatogenous retina is the most frequent and occurs in association with a break in the retina, which allows the liquefied (degenerated) vitreous to pass the sub-retinal space. There are also other less frequent types of detachments, such as the detachment of the tractional retina and the detachment of the exudative retina.


Symptoms of a retinal tear and detached retina may include:

  • A sudden increase in the size and number of floating spots, indicating that a retinal tear may be occurring;
  • A sudden appearance of scintillation, indicating a possible first stage of tearing or detachment of the retina;
    A shadow on the periphery (side) of the field of vision;

  • A gray curtain moving in the middle of the field of vision;
  • A sudden decrease in vision.
