Symptoms of Retinal Detachment

  • A sudden or gradual increase in the number of floaters, which are little "cobwebs" or specks that float about in your field of vision
  • Seeing sudden flashes of light
  • Seeing a gray "curtain" move over your field of vision
  • Seeing a shadow in your peripheral (side) vision
  • A sudden decrease in your vision

A retinal detachment is a medical emergency. Anyone experiencing the symptoms of a Retinal Detachment should see a Retinal Opthalmologist immediately to avoid permanent vision loss.
