what was the reason for the retinal detachment? Have you had cataract surgery before? when was the last visit with the doc? how did things look?
there are several things than need to be taken in to consideration. First and foremost, after buckle surgery the eyeball length changes and this causes the prescription of the eye to change. Once the eye is stable the glasses have to be readjusted. More importantly, OFTEN after gas bubble and vitrectomy, a cataract forms and progresses rapidky actually and needs to be removed for optimizing the vision potential out of the eye. Your eye doc can let you know at the next visit what the best next step is, if the cataract is mild, get glasses, if not , get cataract out then get glasses 6 weeks later.
