Symptoms of torn retina?

Ophthalmology

In brief: Flashes and floaters

Typically patients will note flashing lights particularly at night.
They may also note floating 'specks' in their vision caused by loose bits of the vitreous gel at the back of the eye. Some may note a curtain over a peripheral part of the vision. All these call for an immediate dilated eye exam by an ophthalmologist.
