Man with glassesKnow your risks. Save your sight.

If you have risk factors for retinal detachment, know the warning signs and seek immediate medical attention if you have any of these signs.

If you are very nearsighted or if you have a family history of retinal problems, be sure to have complete dilated eye exams on a regular basis. And always wear protective eyewear when playing sports or engaging in any other hazardous activities. If you have a serious eye injury, see your ophthalmologist right away for an exam.
