Retinal Detachment Support Group

Retinal detachment is a disorder of the eye in which the retina peels away from its underlying layer of support tissue. Initial detachment may be localized, but without rapid treatment the entire retina may detach, leading to vision loss and blindness. Occasionally, injury or trauma to the eye or head may cause a small tear in the retina, which allows fluid to seep through, and peel it away like a bubble in wallpaper.

Retinal surgery in London

Greetings from Spain. I've recently had a retinal tear, which has been treated with laser.

I'm planning a trip to London. In the event of suffering a retinal detachment while staying there (I hope not!), where would you recommend me to go?. Public or private hospital?. Are there any clinic more specialized in retina (and with surgery capabilities)?

Many thanks in advance and my best wishes to those of you who are suffering a retinal detachment.
