Retinal detachment depicts an emergency condition in which a critical layer of tissue (the retina) comes loose from the area that supplies it with oxygen and nutrients. Flashes and floaters in your vision are frequently associated with retinal detachment.

If left untreated, a retinal detachment might result in complete blindness.

The symptoms and warning indications of a detached retina:

  • Eye floaters: small spots or wavy lines that float across your field of vision
  • Feeling of lightness in your eyesight.
  • Vision is hazy.
  • Shadows or “curtains” are appearing across your eyesight.
  • Worsening peripheral vision.

If you have a detached retina, you will require surgery to reattach it within a few days of diagnosis. The type of surgery your doctor advises will depend on several factors, including the severity of the separation. 

Get an eye examination if you notice any symptoms. If you suddenly become sensitive to light, this is also a cause for concern.
