Help and frequently asked questions

Can retinal detachment be treated?

Answer: 

Yes. The treatment is to reposition and fix the retina, often by using a laser although more complex surgery may be required.

Sight is usually improved in over 80% of patients with their first treatment.

However, if the detachment occurs because of an underlying eye problem, that condition must also be treated to avoid recurrence.
