In brief: Depends
If the retina detachment was successfully repaired, there should be little risk that the retina will re-detach during the stress of labor.

In brief: Very little
If the retinal detachment is completely healed by the time of delivery, there is generally very little risk to the eye of the mother.

In brief: Retinal
If your eye has healed fully after the surgery, there should be minimal risk of a recurrent detachment during labor and delivery.
Good luck!
