I had a vitrectomy for a macular pucker a year and a half ago. The main symptom was distortion. After the surgery, I had gray patches in my field of vision, which I hoped would go away in time, since the surgeon said it might take a year for full recovery. Needless to say, I still have the gray patches, cannot read with that eye, and the doctor brushed me off without ever explaining what was going on, as did two other ophthalmologists. I developed the expected cataract and had cataract surgery two days ago. It went fine and was "successful," but I still have patchy vision in that eye. Does anyone know anything about it and if anything can be done? I assume it is the damage to the receptors when the scar tissue was pulled up. Thank you!

Hi Jazzzdiva,
I had the same surgery about 3 years ago, and I still have a tiny hole in the very center of my vision, but the dr. said I would always have that. I would get another opinion, if I were you. They should be able to tell you if that will be permanent or not.
I wish you the very best, I think any kind of eye surgery is very scary,
