    A friend of mine was recently diagnosed with a detached retina. The
    opthamologist wants to see her again in one month. I was under the
    impression that a detached retina required immediate surgery to save the eye
    sight. She is also just starting the second trimester of her pregnancy.

    Depends on the nature and location of the detachment. Small central
    isolated detachments (forming a sort of bubble) do not require immediate
    laser work. They may resolve better on their own. Also, small
    inferiorly-located detachments often do not progress and may resolve on
    there own also.
