Retinal Detachment Surgery Risks
Risks from surgery include bleeding inside the eye, infection, or developing cataracts. Also, if the initial surgery is not successful, it will be necessary to undergo further operations.
Indeed, postoperative scar tissue can be harmful and cause contraction of the retina. This is known as Proliferative Vitreoretinopathy (PVR), requiring further surgery and sometimes a poorer outcome.
Also, there is the possibility of developing a late corneal scar (corneal haze). This can happen in patients who undergo vitrectomy for retinal detachment and who had been subjected to corneal transplant surgery years earlier.
