Retinal Tears and Detachment

Retinal tears and detachment occur when the vitreous, a clear, jelly-like substance that fills the eye, pulls from the retina and causes the retina to tear. Liquid that passes through the tear and settles under the retina results in separation of the retina from the back wall of the eye. The condition is termed a retinal detachment. An untreated detached retina usually causes blindness.

Symptoms of Retinal Detachment

  • Flashing lights in vision
  • Floaters in vision
  • Gray curtain across your field of vision

Contact the Marietta Eye Clinic immediately if you develop the symptoms of retinal detachment. Our retina specialists have expertise in surgical techniques used to secure a detached or torn retina.
