Retinal detachment is the separation of the retina from the underlying tissue, which could result in loss of vision. Some causes of retinal detachment could be high nearsightedness, cataract surgery, loss of vitreous fluid, retinal breaks, glaucoma, or family history or retinal detachment. Some symptoms include:
Flashes of light
Shadow of curtain moving across vision and loss of central vision.
Increase of floaters or spots.
The optometrist will perform a comprehensive eye exam and be able to detect if macular degeneration is present. The optometrist will then decide the best option to treat the patient.
