Retinal detachment

A retinal detachment happens when the retina separates from the back of the inside of your eye. If a retinal detachment isn’t detected or treated quickly it may result in a loss of some or all the vision in your eye.

If you develop any of the symptoms associated with retinal detachment you should see an eye health professional as soon as possible.

Our Understanding Retinal Detachment guide is accredited by the Royal College of Ophthalmologists and is designed to give you a detailed understanding of your eye condition and helpful advice on next steps.
