RETINAL TEAR & DETACHMENT

DESCRIPTION

People of any age can develop a retinal tear or detachment. A retinal tear occurs when the clear material in the middle of the eye (vitreous) pulls away from the retina.  If fluid moves through the tear into the space below the retina, it can lead to a retinal detachment. For more, watch this video.

RISK FACTORS

• trauma to the eye

• family history of retinal detachment
