What is retinal detachment?

An eye condition that causes holes to appear in the vision when looking at things. The cause is a peeling off of the retina (sensing layer of the eye). This is usually due to aging, eye injury or diabetes.

Symptoms of retinal detachment

  • Can see tiny dots or objects in vision, i.e. floaters

  • Blurred vision

  • Blind spots or blind areas in vision

  • Seeing flashes of light

  • Difficulty seeing on one side

  • Seeing jagged spots of light, like the teeth of a saw

Questions your doctor may ask to check for retinal detachment

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose retinal detachment

  • Do you see tiny shapes or dots floating around in your vision (sometimes appearing like insects)?

  • Do you have blurry vision?

  • Do you have partial loss of vision?

  • Do you see flickering or flashes of light even when you are in a dark room?

  • Are you unable to see out from one eye?

Treatment for retinal detachment

The specialist will suggest one or more treatment options. These include laser/freezing repair, injection of an air bubble to seal the tear, or surgery.
