We often see clients who are experiencing blurred vision, shadows moving down from the top to the bottom of the eye, or floaters and spots in their field of vision. While these visual impairments may be nothing serious and typically will go away on their own, it is important to realize that they may also be a warning sign of the retinal detachment.
Retinal detachment can be a serious medical issue that can jeopardize your sight. It occurs when the retina becomes detached from the supportive tissues beneath it. When these layers are not properly attached to one another, sight loss occurs. While this issue is not painful, total vision loss can occur if the retina is completely detached.
Fortunately, when retinal detachment is treated quickly vision may be restored. If you are concerned that you may have retinal detachment, please contact us today.
