... My new retina doctor has done many internal limiting membrane peels with much success. I don't think they are that uncommon. I had the regular membrane peel done 2 years ago and because the membrane was so thick which is the reason I didn't have much success. ... (79 replies)

... had my first vitrectomy surgery done in October 2006 and I went back to the doctor over and over again for 2 years with no improvement. Maybe it was because the membrane was so thick.

... rs since he operated on me for a severe retinal detachment and placed a scleral buckle. Have been stable for most of those years but developed a secondary ERM or membrane wrinkle as he calls it. Caused distortion in vision in that eye. The membrane has now thickened and caused swelling of the retina. ... (7 replies)
... Did your Retina specialist say anything about scar tissue forming on or near the macula ? The scar tissue, ERM (macular pucker) can block the center vision. I was just diagnosed with that 2 weeks ago and am also freaking out about when or even if I should do a Vitrectomy/membrane peel. My "gut" seems to tell me to "leave well enough alone", (even though the one eye is... (7 replies)
... I do feel very fortunate to have a doctor who takes as much time as needed to answer questions and explain things where you understand them. I knew from the first visit that I had someone I would like. I would insist that your doctor takes the time to answer your questions. You know they get paid plenty. If I wasn't happy I would keep looking until I found someone who would... (79 replies)
... Jodie My Doctor does not practice at U of M in Ann Arbor. One place he practices at which is very close to U of M is St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ann Arbor in the Reichert Health Bldg. He is at that location all day on Friday. You could do a physician search, medical specialty opthamology, city Ann Arbor and he would be the second from bottom. Initials A.T. He received...

... BTW, my "twisting the glasses" trick worked only because my glasses already had some astigmatism correction. With the sutures, my amount of astigmatism increased and the axis changed. Once my sutures had finally dissolved and the terrible inflammation had diminished, my rx in that eye was very close to my pre-surgery rx (with significantly improved acuity). Unfortunately,...

... Hi Sharon, My bubble was completely gone at 13.5 days, the most annoying bit of that was when the black line floated directly across the middle of the eye, as it appeared in front of everything at which I looked! Other than that, it was pretty fascinating I thought. If you have stitches you may feel them more in a few days, though perhaps mine were just more prominent for... (79 replies)
... I'm sure I had some stiches put in my eye after surgery, but I sure don't feel anything. Your stiches should dissolve soon I would think. I am happy to hear things are improving for you. ... (79 replies)
