RETINOSCHISIS

A retinoschisis is a separation of the retina from itself.  There are 9 layers to the retina and the outer layers remain attached to the underlying pigment epithelium and Bruch’s membrane.  A retinal detachment would be a detachment of all of the retinal layers from the underlying structures.  Vision remains in a retinoschisis whereas it is mostly lost in a detachment.
