Retinal Detachment - is separation of the retina from the underlying pigment epithelium. Usually caused by a retinal tear, which allows fluid to pass from the vitreous into the sub-retinal space. Disrupts visual cell structure and thus markedly disturbs vision; often requires immediate surgical repair.
