A 30-year-old male asked:

Talk to your surgeon: It depends on the surgery that you had. It also depends on the type of detachment and location of the detachment. I usually tell my patients to plan on at least 1 week off, and sometime it may be longer. Talk to your surgeon.
A 32-year-old female asked:

Quickly: A retinal tear can lead to a detachment in a hurry. The best treatment is to see a retina specialist as soon as possible. Time is vision! A retinal tear can be treated in the office. A retinal detachment usually requires surgery. Flashing lights are a common symptom of retinal tears or detachment.
A 47-year-old female asked:

Not likely: Computer use may cause eye strain, but it should not lead to retinal detachment.
