8 DAYS IS MAGIC NUMBER FOR MACULA-OFF REATTACHMENT

Medwire News reported a new study in the British Journal of Ophthalmology that investigated the relationship between visual acuity improvement post macula-off reattachment surgery and the time between retina detachment and reattachment surgery.  They discovered:

 Individuals who have a macula-off rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) for up to 8 days before being treated can expect continued improvement in their visual acuity (VA) for up to a year after reattachment surgery, show study results.Conversely, those who have the condition for more than 8 days before being treated will only see an improvement in VA up to 6 weeks postsurgery.
