After retinal detachment, what are the key treatments for eye health?

Continue exams. With a rd in one eye, you are at a higher risk of an rd in the fellow eye. Regular checks ups and awareness of the symptoms of a new rd is important.
Nothing specifically. Once a retina has been re-attached, there are no know interventions to prevent re-attachment. It is important to be vigilant for symptoms of further retinal trouble, such as floaters and flashing lights. Also protective eyewear may be beneficial with contact sports.

Several options. Having a retinal detachment in the lower part of the eye precludes the use an office based pneumatic retinopexy.

Cryotherapy or laser alone can also sometimes be considered if the area is small. Read more...
