The retina is a crucial part of your eye that helps you see clearly. But what happens when your retinas are damaged and begin to detach from their place on the eyeball? Retinal detachment can be a severe problem if not addressed quickly.
Your parents or guardians probably made your eye doctor appointments when you were a child. Unless you have eye issues like an oval-shaped cornea or require glasses, it might have become easy for you to neglect to make eye appointments now that you’re an adult.

Many people are affected by amblyopia, but few know this condition by its actual name. What is amblyopia?
