Detached Retina Treatment

Expected Results of Detached Retina Treatment

With modern treatments for detached retina, over 90 percent of those with a retinal detachment can be successfully treated. In some cases, however, a second treatment is needed.
 
The visual outcome is not always predictable. The final visual result may not be known for up to several months following surgery. Even under the best of circumstances, and even after multiple attempts at repair, treatment sometimes fails, and vision may eventually be lost. Visual results are best if the retinal detachment is repaired before the macula (the center region of the retina responsible for fine, detailed vision) detaches. That is why it is important to contact an eye care professional immediately if you see a sudden or gradual increase in the number of floaters and/or light flashes you see, or a dark curtain over your field of vision.
