Abstract
Retinal detachment is an emergency commonly encountered in ophthalmic practice. In this article, a reflection about the ethical implications surrounding the informed consent process of retinal detachment repair is presented. We look at how premade informed consent forms allow for a better patient understanding of their condition, the procedure they are due to undergo, their postoperative course, and the potential complications they might face, hence potentially improving the overall outcome.
