    Question:

    Is there a lens that corrects distorted images due to retinal detachment?


    Answer:

    Unfortunately, there is not a lens or spectacle correction that can correct distorted images following retinal detachment. Glasses won’t correct any remaining distortion following detachment surgery, as well. Surgery is the only way to repair a detached retina.

    If you are having symptoms of a detached or torn retina, see your doctor or ophthalmologist as soon as possible. Without treatment, a detached retina can lead to permanent loss of vision.
