In brief: Painless sight loss
Signs of rd are those seen by examining eye doctor: subretinal fluid, retinal tear, pigment cells in vitreous, and pvd.
The symptoms that a patient experiences are painless, progressive loss or greying; of vision which may involve the central vision. This may be proceeded by flashes and floaters. Sometimes an rd can by asymptomatic, and therefore it is important to get checked.

In brief: Black curtain.
If the retina detaches from the back of the eye, you will see a black curtain or veil in the area that the retina is detached.
If left untreated the curtain will not go away and could progress ultimately leading to complete blindness of the eye.
