Healthy Living: Retinal Detachment

Retinal detachment happens when an injury causes the retina to peel away from the wall of the eye.

It can happen quickly, or a small tear can continue to progress over time until the retina detaches.

As Katie Boomgaard shows us, early detection can save your sight.

Doctor Landa says retinal detachment can occur weeks or months after the initial injury, so it’s important for people who have had facial injuries to recognize the warning signs and seek treatment.

Doctor Landa says surgeons were able to restore 95 percent of the vision in Regina’s left eye.
