    In this 1-Minute Video, Dr. Debra Goldstein describes how shifting fluid can offer clues to the type of retinal detachment. Shifting fluid is not unique to exudative detachments, she explains; it can be seen in large, chronic or rhegmatogenous detachments. Dr. Goldstein recommends looking for retinal breaks in any patient with little corrugations on the retinal surface, pigment in the vitreous or any other sign of rhegmatogenous detachment, even if there is shifting fluid.
