A torn retina is a common problem that many people experience, usually without any lasting damage. If you suspect you have a torn retina, it's smart to seek evaluation. That's because sometimes a torn retina progresses to a detached retina, which can bring lasting loss of visual function or even blindness. 

Ophthalmologists and researchers at Yale Medicine are focused on developing new, more effective treatments for retinal conditions.
