When should you see a retina specialist?
A retina specialist or a retinalogist should be consulted when there is a retinal detachment . A retinal detachment is a medical emergency where part of the retina pulls away from the blood vessels that supply its oxygen and can lead to permanent vision loss if the retina isn’t reattached quickly.
Can the retina heal itself?
A detached retina cannot heal on its own. It’s important to get medical care as soon as possible to avoid permanent vision loss.
