• A number of tests of vision were performed in patients after surgical repair of retinal detachment. The major tests performed were Snellen visual acuity, interferometric acuity, Stiles-Crawford function, and increment-threshold analysis. In two patients it was possible to evaluate all functions preoperatively. Although the sample is modest (ten eyes in nine patients), trends in visual recovery are identified and discussed.
