    Usually after the detached retina surgery, it will need a long time to get recovery. However, it may need a week for you to see things. However, you may be in a blurry eye sight. You will see clearly after a long time treatment, about half a year or more.

    Well, generally speaking, you can see objects a few hours after the surgery, but on the other hand, you should know that your eyes will be blurry in the first step. And you do not need worry about it. It is the normal symptom you will have, also, I think you should be careful and watch something clearly after one week. As we know that the first week is the most essential week which can affect the vision recovery of your eyes. So just be patient. And also, you should know that it is can be dangerous if you use your eyes which have been made surgery, it can hurt them, for your eyes are sensitive and fragile. And when you read book or watch something else, you have to focus your eyes on the point for a long time. Then it can lead to eye strains. In some serious cases, it can cause dry eyes, or pink eyes. Anyway, you are not supposed to do that. Besides, you should not do exercises like jumping, running which can lead to serious result. Just be careful about your eyes. Having a good rest is effective for your eyes.

    Well, so sorry to hear that. So, there are indeed some lasting impacts resulted from taking an detached retina surgery. And of course you are required to pay maximum attention to your eyes. As to the details, you must follow the doctor's directions. Generally speaking, it would take you about one week or so before you are able to see things as usual. And you will have to stay in the hospital for medical care.
