What are the symptoms of a detached retina and should it be treated as an emergency?

The symptoms of a detached retina are the presence of flashes of light (photopsia) or objects floating in the vitreous humour and, occasionally, a progressive shadow and loss of vision. It is important to contact your ophthalmologist as quickly as possible. It is not an emergency, but it needs to be operated on as soon as possible by a surgeon.
