Question:
What is an elevation on the retina and what causes it?

Answer:
There are numerous causes of retinal elevation. The retina can be elevated because there is tissue pulling on it, because there is fluid beneath it, or because there is some form of tissue beneath it. One should discuss the differential causes with an ophthalmologist.
