Retinal traction: Most retinal rears are caused by traction on the retina by the vitreous gel, sometimes in association with weaknesses in the retina related to high eye nearsightedness, retinal injuries, old retinal scarring, etc. As the eye ages, the vitreous gel naturally liquifies and detatches from the retina, a posterior retinal detachment. Residual areas of traction can cause retinal tears/detachment. ...Read more
Age: The vitreous jelly changes as we age and it pulls away from the back of the eye (retina) - a posterior vitreous detachment. During this process, if the jelly pulls hard enough on the retina (especially in a thin or weak area) it can tear the retina which can subsequently detach. Other risk factors include myopia, cataract surgery, head/eye trauma, family history, lattice degeneration, etc. ...Read more
Depends : Peripheral cysts your are born with. Patients can develop cystic changes in the periphery called retinoschisis. Cysts in the central retina? The macula are usually from leakage of blood vessels from diabetes, vein occlusions, inflammation in the eye (uveitis) and rarely macular pucker, retinitis pigmentosa, and Niacin usage. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends on type: and location. Retinal cysts as in cystoid macular edema occur in the center, cause blurring and are due to inflammation, usually after surgery. Cysts in the peripheral retina are quite normal and are sometimes called "cystic retinal tufts". Occasionally, cystic tufts can be torn by acute vitreous separation causing a retinal tear which may be lasered to prevent detachment. ...Read more
