Eyes developed cataracts. Is there a posibility to see again after retinal detachment?

Response from Dr. Conway

Cataracts and retinal detachment are completely unrelated. As for retinal detachment, vision can often return over time, with rest and the proper medications, given under the supervision of an expert eye specialist. In some cases (such as when the detachment is due to an infection, such as herpes), the outcome is much less good.
