RETINAL DETACHMENT     


Retinal detachment is a serious problem, and with no treatment, vision is almost always lost.  Although anyone can have a retinal detachment, they tend to occur more frequently in patients who have a high degree of nearsightedness, who have had trauma to the eye, and/or, have a family history of retinal detachment.  Also, patients who have had cataract surgery, or retinal laser treatments, are more prone to develop a retinal detachment.


Most retinal detachments require immediate laser, or surgical repair.  In most cases, there is high likelihood of successfully reattaching the retina.  The return of good vision depends on how quickly the repair is performed, its location, specifically whether or not the macula, or area of central vision was detached prior to surgery.  If the macula was detached, the prognosis for return of central vision is poor.
