This article highlights that with the advent of various modern techniques, coupled with rapid emergency department diagnosis and care, retinal detachment need not entail blinding for most patients.

Objectives

Objectives
Upon completion of this module practitioners should have a clear understanding that: Retinal detachment refers to separation of the inner layers of the retina from the underlying retinal pigment epithelium (RPE, choroid). Retinal detachments may be concomitant with hereditary malformations, metabolic disorders, trauma (including previous ocular surgery), vascular disease, choroidal tumours, high myopia or vitreous disease, or deterioration. Of the 3 types of retinal detachment, rhegmatogenous RD is the most common, deriving its name from rhegma, meaning rent or break. Comprehensive prehospital and ED treatment of a patient suffering retinal detachment is imperative. Comments This is a serious eye problem that may occur at any age without apparent cause. However, it most frequently appears in middle-aged and older individuals. A hard solid blow in to the eye may detach the retina as well. Most retinal detachments are caused by the presence of one or more small holes or tears in the retina.
