More details regarding retinal detachment is needed before answering the question. Some of them include; the duration of retinal detachment after which it was repaired,technique used for repair (buckling/vitrectomy), the time elapsed since the retinal surgery,Current status of retina (attached or detahced) Visual recovery after retinal surgery and current visual status.I would advise you to undergo a thorough retinal examination (indirect ophthalmoscopy).If the retina is well attached and your surgeon is convinced that cataract is significantly reducing your vision, then you can go ahead with catarct surgery.If the first surgery was vitrectomy then vitreo-retinal surgeon backup may be required for cataract surgery.
