Detached Retna

Were you looking for information about a Detached Retina? Detached retna is a common misspelling of detached retina.
 
A detached retina occurs when the retina is moved from its normal position in the eye. It requires immediate medical care if there is to be hope of preventing permanent vision loss. There are three types of detached retina: rhegmatogenous (which is the most common type), tractional, and exudative. A few of the eye conditions that can put a person at risk of developing a detached retina include nearsightedness, cataract surgery, an eye injury, and a family history of retinal detachment. Symptoms of a detached retina can include blurred vision, flashes of light, or partial vision loss. A detached retina is also sometimes referred to as a retinal tear or retinal detachment.
