The retina is a layer of tissue located in the back of the eye. As the retina picks up light, it sends the perceived images to the brain. Retinal detachment pulls the retina from its normal position along a layer of blood vessels. The blood vessels give the retina oxygen and nourishment, and without it you are hindered from sharp central vision. If the detachment is not fixed right away, you could suffer from permanent vision loss. Symptoms include floaters, flashers and discomfort.
