Partially detached retina...?
I just had surgery to fix my partially detached retina.
I was just wondering how likely it is that I fully recover and regain my vision. Might I completely go blind?

Retinal detachment surgery has a good rate of success.

If your central vision area was detached (macula), the rate of recovery of original vision is not as good as if it was not off.

Very unlikely at this point that you would "completely go blind".

Ask your retinal doctor too as your surgeon knows about your specific situation.
