          Abstract

          The seasonal variation in the incidence of retinal detachment over the period from 1981 to 1987 inclusive was investigated. Highly significant associations were observed between this variation and both sunshine and temperature. Hence, it is suggested that heat or cold may be important additional factors in the development of retinal detachment in an already damaged retina. The occurrence of retinal detachment peaks over the winter months with the highest level being in the month of November, while there is a trough over the summer months.
