Partial Retinal Detachment.. please help.

I just found out that i have a partial retinal detachment with no rips of holes and my only symptom is a flash of light in the lower left part of my right eye. The doc told me that I should give it a week to heal and if it worsens go to the er asap and see a specialist. I was wondering if it can actually heal on its own and do what the doc said and wait a week or do I need to go to the hospital asap.

I think it can heal on it's own. I'd still wait a week and see a specialist, just to be sure. I'd also watch out for changes in your vision, or more flashes of light.
