Retinal detachment surgery and aftercare
This booklet is designed to help you understand what a retinal detachment is, what the surgery for a retinal detachment entails and explain the care that is needed afterwards. The information will help you to decide whether to have the operation. You might want to discuss it with a relative or carer. Before your operation you will be asked to sign a consent form, so it is important you understand this booklet before you decide to go ahead with surgery.
Because of the length of this leaflet, it is available as a digital download only.
