Dear Mr. Nasir
I can understand your feelings and wish that your daughter could be successfully treated soon. In general, surgery of Retinal Detachment depends on the type of detachment, its cause, extent and duration. Apparently, in this case the cause seems to be the endstage retinopathy of prematurity. You should get an opinion from the vitreoretina department about the prospects of surgical intervention in your daughters case. This can only be done, when a vitreoretina specialist thoroughly examines the eye. I hope, this reply is useful to you and might have cleared some of the questions in your mind.
