    If retinoblastoma involves the macula ( the centre of the vision in the retina) then the vision cannot be corrected. If it is detected early and involves the peripheral retina ( not the macula), it can be treated with cryotherapy or radiotherapy and it may be possible to retain some vision in the eye.
