In brief: Retinal reattachment

Retinal detachment is uncommon in patients under 65 .
It is more common if there is nearsightedness or trauma. The symptoms are floaters , flashes of light, or the vision dimming from top or bottom like a curtain...So, be checked if these apply to you. as for the surgery, it is needed to save the vision. They use medicine to keep you comfortable and safe...Have faith...Keep us posted..Dr.Sibley
