    As you have relatively high myopia, you should prevent it from getting worse. Have your eyes checked regularly and don't overuse them. Stay out of the bright sun and wear sunglasses to block UV rays when outside. Avoid doing reckless activities that can endanger your eyes.

    Most the retinal detachment is caused by injury. To prevent retinal detachment, you should avoid injury because eye injuries can damage the retina and cause detachment. So when you play sports, you'd better wear protective glasses to protect your eyes from getting injured.

    Actually, you can not prevent most cases of retinal detachment. But having routine eye exams is important so that your eye doctor can look for signs that you might be more likely to have a retinal detachment. But some activities or sports you should avoid such as boxing, running, jumping or some other intensive sports.
