In brief: It depends

The longer the retina has been detached, the poorer the surgical outcomes.
Generally speaking, greater than 90% of retinal detachnments can be repaired with one operation.

In brief: Pretty good

Depends on how long its been there, macula on or off.
Getting back to 20/20 is not that common, but getting decent vision is pretty common these days.
