Perhaps this isn't the correct forum for this - if so, I apologize.
A wuffo friend (a nurse) says that skydiving can cause retina detachment. I've seen many different injuries and other medical problems posted on these forums, but have never seen anything about this. Has this ever happened to anyone? I'm not talking about anything like this being caused by collisions or bad landings, but just from the act of skydiving and parachute deployment. I guess a REALLY hard opening might cause it. Any thoughts?
