The article analyzes the surgical treatment of 96 patients who underwent surgery for retinal detachment. The cause of retinal detachment in all cases was an eye contusion. The author analyzed the age, gender, visual acuity before and after surgery, the cause of contusion, the time of onset of retinal detachment, concomitant pathology, type of retinal tear, surgical technique, results of ophthalmological examinations in the pre- and postoperative period, postoperative complications. The factors that affect visual functions in the early and late postoperative period were determined. Visual acuity after surgery depends on the initial visual acuity. Delaying the time of surgery leads to a decrease in visual functions in the postoperative period. Proliferative vitreoretinopathy and traumatic optic neuropathy were the most common complications that led to vision loss 6 months after surgery. Traumatic optic neuropathy is the result of trauma and is not associated with surgery. There are no effective treatments. Proliferative vitreoretinopathy is a complication of surgical treatment of retinal detachment. Repeated surgical treatment does not improve vision
