In brief: Laser and cryo

If a detachment is new, it should be treated by a fellowship trained retinal specialist who can provide you options.
In general, we use laser and sometimes cryo (freezing) to barricade off detachments and prevent them from progressing. A gas bubble is used for tamponade or holding the retina in place. Good luck.
