Retina Detachment: Causes, Symptoms, Treatment, & Virectomy

A medical emergency, to say the least. It is the condition when the retina of the eye breaks away from its support, causing blindness, if not treated on time. In medical terms it is a condition in which the sensory glands of the retina separate from its choroid, the wall of the eye which provides oxygen, blood and nutrients to the retina. The retina, which is light sensitive and thin tissue, converts the light entering the eye through the lens, to electric waves and sends them to the brain via the optic nerve. As soon as the symptoms are noticed it should be immediately treated, for the retina upon not receiving oxygen for a long time, may cause a greater risk of eye damage Read more about Retina Detachment: Causes, Symptoms, Treatment, & Virectomy
