Retinal detachment
A retinal detachment occurs when the retina, that part of the eye that contains the photoreceptors, detaches from the underlying layers of cells, called the choroid. A retinal detachment my be the result of injury to the eye such as blunt trauma (remember Sugar Ray, the boxer) or it may result from other things like high myopia or age-related macular degeneration. In certain diseases, retinal breaks and tears occur and these may lead to a retinal detachment. Early warning signs include bright dots or lights or some of your side vision may appear dark. A retinal detachment may be treatable if detected early, so see your Ophthalmologist.

Retinoblastoma
The most common cancer in the eye occurring in early childhood. A parent or doctor may first suspect a problem by detecting whiteness in the normally dark pupil. Occasionally it leads to a wandering eye (strabismus). It does not spread from one eye to the other but about 25% have a tumor in each eye. Immediate medical treatment is necessary. Sometimes the eye(s) must be removed to prevent spreading of the tumor into the brain.

Retrobulbar neuritis
An inflammation of the optic nerve. It causes a loss in vision. It is sometimes indicative of a neurological disease.

Rod cone dystrophy
A number of retina diseases in which the rod photoreceptors first start to degenerate followed by the cone photoreceptors. Other parts of the retina and RPE are also adversely affected. Symptoms include loss of side vision and night blindness followed by the loss of central vision. RP is the most common form of rod-cone degeneration. Some forms occur at birth while other forms may start much later in life. Generally very poor prognosis.

Rods
The rods are the visual cells of the retina that are important for night vision and peripheral vision. The rods are the first affected in rod-cone degenerations such as RP.
