    What is retinal detachment?

    A retinal detachment is an eye condition involving separation of the retina from its attachments to the underlying tissue within the eye. Most retinal detachments are a result of a retinal break, hole, or tear. A retinal detachment of this type is known as a rhegmatogenous retinal detachment. Most retinal breaks, holes, or tears are not a result of injury. The majority of retinal breaks, holes, or tears are spontaneous, result when the vitreous gel pulls loose or separates from its attachment to the retina, usually in the peripheral parts of the retina. The vitreous is a clear gel that fills two-thirds of the inside of the eye and occupies the space in front of the retina. As the vitreous gel pulls loose, it will sometimes exert pulling forces, known as traction, on the retina, and if the retina is weak, the retina will tear. Retinal tears are sometimes accompanied by bleeding if a retinal blood vessel is included in the tear. Everyone develops some shrinkage of the vitreous as they age, and many people develop separation of the vitreous from the retina as they get older. However, only a small percentage of these vitreous separations result in retinal tears.
    Once the retina has torn, liquid from the vitreous gel can then pass through the tear and accumulate behind the retina. The buildup of fluid behind the retina is what separates (detaches) the retina from underlying layers in the back of the eye. As more of the liquid vitreous collects behind the retina, the extent of the retinal detachment can increase and involve the entire retina, leading to a total retinal detachment. A retinal detachment almost always affects only one eye at a time. The second eye, however, must be checked thoroughly for any signs of predisposing factors or existing retinal tears or holes that may lead to a retinal detachment in the future.

    What is Macular Hole?

    Macular hole is when a tear or opening forms in your macula. As the hole forms, things in your central vision will look blurry, wavy or distorted. As the hole grows, a dark or blind spot appears in your central vision. A macular hole does not affect your peripheral (side) vision.

    What is Epiretinal Membrane?

    An epiretinal membrane is a condition where a very thin layer of scar tissue forms on the surface of the retina in an area that is responsible for our sharpest vision. The part of the eye affected by an epiretinal membrane is called the macula.
