Retinal Tear

Retinal Tear - What it is

The retina is a layer of cells at the back of the eye, that detects light and helps to form visual images. Occasionally, the retina can break or tear, which exposes the space underneath the retina.  Therefore, if not treated early, retinal tears can lead to a more serious condition called retinal detachment, which often leads to partial or complete loss of vision.
