After surgery, it usually takes some weeks for your vision to recover. If we used a gas bubble, your vision will be very blurry immediately after surgery. This is normal and you should not be alarmed by it. Once the retina is attached, your sight will continue to improve slowly over several months. You might be given sight tests to see if glasses would improve your vision.
Your final vision will depend on the nature of your original detached retina. If we diagnose and treat it quickly and successfully, most of your vision will be restored. If, when we diagnose a detached retina, the eye already has poor vision, we might not be able to restore some of your sight. You might not be able to read using the affected eye. Form a distance, you might not recognise faces or be able to read car numbers plates, for example. This allows you to see vision is very important for day-to-day activities such as going out and climbing stairs.
