    Warning symptoms of Retinal Detachment are floaters and flashes in your vision. Also you may notice an area of blurred vision. If you experience flashes and floaters then you should have an urgent check with your local optometrist or ophthalmologist who will dilate ( enlarge with eye drops) your pupils and examine your retina. Retinal Detachment can only be accurately diagnosed by a dilated retinal examination by an eye care professional such as an optometrist or ophthalmologist.
