A disorder marked by the separation of the retinal pigment epithelium from the innermost aspect of Bruch's membrane. The gap created can be filled with blood, drusenoid material, serous exudate, or fibrovascular tissue. The condition is associated with many retinal diseases including neovascular age-related macular degeneration, angioid streaks, central serous chorioretinopathy and hereditary chorioretinal degenerations.
