Yes it is a common problem. Let me first tell you the most importtant thing. you are at high risk of RD in the other eye, perhaps 10-20% See your retina Eye MD ophthalmologist every year, avoid trauma to eye, live a healthy lifestyle, immediate report any increase of floaters, flashes of light or loss of peripheral vision. You need to discuss with your retina surgeon, even get second opinion. If you have an epiretinal membraine (ERM) you can discuss ERM peel, if you have macular hole, you can ask about closing the hole. Not likely anything will make it normal.
