Retinal detachment can be a serious medical issue that can jeopardize your sight. It occurs when the retina becomes detached to the supportive tissues beneath it and when these layers are not properly attached to one another, sight loss occurs. While this issue is not painful, total vision loss can occur if the retina is completely detached.
Fortunately, if the problem is treated quickly vision may be restored. If you are concerned that you may have retinal detachment, please contact Dr. Dunn for an emergence eye health evaluation.
