In brief: It Depends
Retinal detachment surgery can involve a range of surgical techniques from an office procedure to operative surgery.
Typical recovery ranges from 2 to 6 weeks depending on whether gas or oil was used in the surgery. It may take months for the vision to recovery optimally, depending on the type of detachment that occurred. It is best to follow the surgeon's guidelines.

Depending on the type of retinal surgery it can take weeks to months for your eye to heal.
Sometimes, you do not get all your vision back. Speak to your eye surgeon for more info. Good luck.
