In regards to retinal detachment, symptoms are red eye, blurry vision, black spots and lights, pain at times, noticeable dimness all in one eye only

These are common in older folks as the vitreous gel ages. It is worthwhile having an ophthalmologist get a peek at your eyes if you are seeing these at your young age. ...Read more
