Continue reading to learn about the different types of retinal disorders and when to seek care.

Retinal Detachment

Retinal detachment is a very serious condition that occurs when the retina becomes separated from the underlying supportive tissues, preventing the retina from functioning properly.

If you notice spots, floaters, flashes of light, poor vision or a shadow appearance across the top of the eye, seek vision care immediately.

Macular Hole

Macular holes are tears or cysts that can develop in the macula (a small spot in the retina, or back inner part of the eye), where fine focusing occurs. Macular holes usually cause a sudden decrease in vision in one eye. Visit your eye doctor immediately if you notice a sudden loss of vision in one eye.

Retinal Artery Occlusion

Retinal artery occlusion is a blockage in the arteries of the retina that can cause sudden, painless vision loss. There are two types of occlusions: branch retinal artery occlusion (BRAO) and central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO). BRAO is a blockage in the small retinal arteries. CRAO is an obstruction in the central artery of the retina. Symptoms of retinal artery occlusion include blind spots and loss of peripheral vision. Seek eye care immediately after symptoms begin to prevent permanent vision loss.

Retinal Vein Occlusion

Retinal vein occlusion is a blockage in the vein of the retina. This can cause floaters, blurry vision or vision loss in all or part of the eye. Symptoms can develop suddenly or get worse after a few days or hours. While there is no cure for this condition, treatment methods can be implemented to stabilize vision.
