Leroy if you dont mind me asking, how did you get sc'ed for retinal detachment. Was it from an inservice injury or after your discharge. I've had a retinal detachment, after discharge from the service, so I am curious.

Carlie, not sure exactly what the scope of Leroy Johnson detachment is. Mine was a detatchment and tear, one office procedure, two surgeries and sklerebuckle inplace. This happened thirty years after discharge and not sce'd. I was just curious as to Leroys cicumstances. If this sugery on Leroy happened in service, its possible he could get glaucoma secodary. I dont know really.
