Retinal Detachment
Retinal Detachment is a pathologic condition in which the retina is separated from the underlying cell layer.  It most often is caused when a tear in the retinal tissue leaks fluid from the space between the lens and the retina (vitreous).

Symptoms may include loss of peripheral vision, flashes of light or floaters (moving particles that cast shadows on the retina). Retinal detachment frequently needs immediate surgical treatment.
