It is rare: Lattice degeneration is a condition where the peripheral retina is degenerated or "weak" in certain areas. It can predispose to retina breaks in a small percentage of patients. These breaks can progress into a true retinal detachment and if severe enough, could cause loss of vision. You need regular ophthalmic exams if you have lattice. Either by a general ophthalmologist or retina specialist.
