... In September of 2012 I had a retinal detachment surgery on my right eye. Following the surgery, I was diagnosed with a Macular Pucker which I then had surgery to correct in Dec of 2012. ... (0 replies)
... after much agonizing about the decision, I decided that the risks were just too great. I am very surprised that your doctor told you to wait. I saw a total of 3 macular specialists and all advised to have the surgery sooner rather than later. They say if you wait too long, you will not get good results from surgery. ... (5 replies)

... I have a macular pucker and I was advised by the surgeon to wait until it's bad before doing anything. I am now at that spot, will probably do surgery soon. ... (5 replies)
... Can anyone recommend a top surgeon for Macular Pucker vitrectomy (preferrably in NYC, or possibly south Florida)? I've had consultations with two "top" doctors. The first doctor, which I saw at Manhattan Eye and Ear, was rated one of the top retina surgeons in the US, but his bedside manner was non-existent. He was rude and made me feel stupid every time I asked a question.... (5 replies)
... Thanks so much for reply. your experience is very helpful to me. I was first diagonised in Sept. and I have seen 2 retina specialists and they are telling me to just wait and see, which I'm certainly planning to do, becasue i can still see pretty well. i do have the small yellow hole in the center of my vision, but when i turn my head a certain way, I can still make out...

... In my case, the first vitrectomy was not at all helpful because it left me with a black spot in the centre of my field of vision. That started to grow very quickly and within six months had obliterated 75% of the field. That was the membrane (macular pucker) that grew from the remnants of the original PVD filament that had not been completely removed. I went to another... (33 replies)
... Did your vitrecotomy help before it lead to the complications of the macular pucker? ... (33 replies)
... In my case it happened quite suddenly and needed a vitrectomy to sever the filament. That led to the complication of macular pucker which needed a second vitrectomy. ... (33 replies)
... Hi , I'm 53 and waiting to see if my left eye will improve. diagonsis was retina refraction detachment. Which the retina specialist explained as the vitreous gel was attaching to my retina and not "sliding" off". There's a 50/50 chance it could get better with no surgery, so I'm just "waiting" to see. Has anyone had a similar problem, and if so , how long did it last ? ... (33 replies)
... 7-16-2011 So sorry about your troubles, Michaelman, Top Geek, all of you, but so glad you shared the information, and have to add that after cataract surgery in 06 I had my first corticosteroid injections into both eyeballs, no problems, (correction 7-20-11, according to my post to Dancin' Boots way back then, it was before cataract surgery that I had...

... nd I truly admire your success in educating yourself. Keep it up! I really hope that your photoreceptor lines manage to reconnect over the coming months. Your macular edema seems to be resolving nicely. ... (33 replies)
... The "swath" of missing photoreceptors in my OCT scan post surgery is very mysterious...one would think that if they were missing due to pucker traction, there wouldn't be such straight margins at the edges of this "swath". ... (33 replies)
... week exam turned out well, with significant improvement in your macular edema. ... (33 replies)
... However, I did develop cataract and had surgery for that, followed by cataract surgery in left eye. I just had a second vitrectomy on left eye for the macular pucker, and am hopeful. I was back to work in 2 days with no restrictions, no pain,but it does take a while for vision to improve. ... (33 replies)
... Keep in mind that all retinal surgeons do not specialize in vitreoretinal surgery. Other areas of specialization include diabetic eye disease and macular degeneration. ... (8 replies)
... Dr. Charles does all of his own surgeries. There was a fellow (actually a young woman) present during my surgery handing him instruments. I know this because Dr. Charles prefers to have his patients awake during the surgery so that they can respond to any instructions he might give. They did use IV propofol for the local anesthesia injection. I assume that Dr. Charles did... (8 replies)
... Jodie, Just got back from 4th Retina Sp. appointment and we did NOT hit it off with this Doctor at all. He "belittled" my questions and did not even review my OCT with me. Seems like they love taking these kind of tests but then never give the patient the courtesy of explaining it to them. J He just sat down and told me a general "macular pucker" presentation of which they... (8 replies)
