Black and Hispanic patients treated surgically for retinal detachment have worse vision results than White patients, according to a study published online Jan. 4 in the Canadian Journal of Ophthalmology. Jia Xu, M.D., from the Boston University School of Medicine, and colleagues evaluated the effect of socioeconomic and demographic factors on outcomes in rhegmatogenous retinal detachments (RRDs). The analysis included 71 White and 124 Black and/or Hispanic patients who had surgical repair of RRDs at a single-center safety net hospital (October 2013 to September 2021).
