Did it tear? I had a friend and her retina tore and the Dr said if it had not been caught, she would have lost her vision.

No. It's stretched out with holes on the bottom. My 13 year old is the one that has this=/

Okay. I know my friends Dr had a technical term, but it was long... wish I could help.

I don't know what it's called, but mine are pretty stretched. The eye dr has mentioned it a few times. He said if it tears to be seen immediately.

That's what he told my daughter. If she sees something weird, we have to go in immediately.

Did you see anyone else for that or was that just it?

That was pretty much it. I am seen every year so he can check it, but there isn't really anything he can do. He said odds are nothing will ever happen but if it happens to be seen immediately

That's what he said to us. It makes me sick to my stomach to know she has that chance of it deattching.
