10 Signs and Symptoms of Detached Retina


2. Photopsia

Photopsia is a condition where the patient have visions of light flashes. This symptom is sometimes present in people experiencing posterior vitreous detachment, migraines, sensory deprivation, and retinal detachment.

For ocular-related issues, the liquefaction that results in the shrinkage of the vitreous will pull the vitreoretinal attachments, thereby causing irritation and will lead to the discharge of electrical impulses. Then the brain will interpret these impulses as light flashes. Photopsia is one of the possible reasons behind retinal detachment. It can also occur in some other eye-related conditions. Nevertheless, this symptom requires urgent medical attention to avoid further complications.
