If you have a tear, you may notice :

  • Floaters (specks or threads in your vision).
  • Flashes (lights, stars or streaks in your vision).
  • Sudden blurry vision.

Symptoms of a detachment :

If you have a detachment, you may notice :

  • Signs of a tear (floaters, flashes, and blurry vision).
  • An area of dark vision, like a curtain or veil coming down.

How to Prevent Vision Loss:

Early treatment helps prevent vision loss from retinal tears and detachment. If you have any of these symptoms, immediately consult an eye doctor.

You are at greater risk for tears and detachment if you:

  • Are very near-sighted,
  • Have had a detachment before or
  • Have a family history of retinal problems.

Warning Signs:

A lot of people see flashes and floaters from time to time. But sometimes these or other symptoms can be signs of a tear or detachment. Call your doctor quickly if you notice any of the following

  • The vision becomes blurry and diminished.
  • Your vision changes after a sharp blow to an eye.

If you are at risk, have eye exams as often as your eye doctor suggests.

Regular eye examination is a necessity.
