A tuft on the retina is a small elevation where the bag of gel that fills the eye is pulling on a focal part of the retina.  However there is no tear in the retina.  It is higher risk for a tear and the patient should know to come in if they see flashes of light, spiderwebs in their vision. or a shadow or curtain coming over their vision.   Otherwise we should monitor it yearly.
