When your retina is drawn away from its normal placement at the back of your eye, retinal detachment is an eye problem that occurs. You might not have any symptoms if only a small part of your retina has removed. Retinal detachment is a medical emergency. If you have symptoms of a removed retina, it's important to go to your eye doctor or the emergency clinic right away. The symptoms of retinal detachment usually come on promptly. If the retinal detachment isn't treated right away, more of the retina can separate, which increases the risk of permanent vision loss or blindness. If you're worried about your risk for retinal detachment, talk with your eye physician. A retinal detachment lifts or draws the retina from its normal setting. A retinal detachment is most likely to occur in people who: Are very myopic; Have had a retinal detachment in the other eye; Have a family background of retinal detachment; Have had cataract surgical treatment; Have other eye diseases or disorders; Have had an eye injury. See an eye care specialist immediately if you have any symptoms. Surgical treatment to re-attach the retina or deal with a retinal tear may involve: changing the jelly and removing inside your eye; affixing a small band around your eye to press the wall of your eye and retina better together; injecting a bubble of gas into your eye to push the retina against the rear of your eye; sealing the tear in your retina with laser or cold therapy.
