... Thanks again, I just was referred to another Dr. that went to Yale, Stanford and Harvard and has 12 + years experience. He just called me back to talk to me about the ICG dye as I did not want to waste an appt. with him if he always used it during surgery. His answer was that the Toxicity of the ICG dye was in a study only on animals and has not been proven to cause retina... (8 replies)
... Jodie, as you know, my second vitrectomy was to remove an erm that had grown from the remnants of a previous operation botched by another surgeon at another hospital. The erm surgeon was very 'up front' with me and assured me he could restore 75% of my vision in that eye. It was down to 25% at that time. Immediately after the op, he confirmed that all had gone well and that... (8 replies)
... Jodie, Your awesome. Thank you again for your perspective. I did not realize that all Retina Specialists did not necessarily do a lot of ERM surgeries. I will for sure ask the questions you suggested and not waste time on the other ones. Can I get your opinion please, on whether or not you personally would feel comfortable with a Surgeon that only has 1 and 1/2 years... (8 replies)

... 1) You want a surgeon who has done a lot of ERM procedures. Many retinal specialists focus primarily on other conditions. It is also a good sign if the surgeon is willing to spend time with you and doesn't become obviously impatient with your questions. S/he should inspire your confidence. It's probably a good idea to ask whether other doctors will be participating in... (8 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)
... Hi! I had Vitrectomy in 2/2008 at UNC. 63yo male, miami, had previous cataracts, implants, high myopia and had peel. I was also steroid reacter so I could not have the "good" drops to reduce swelling-which I still have , about 360 on "OCT". I took Acular on long term, but discontinued now. Healing is VERY slow. Vision is testing at 20/30 sometimes better, but letters bounce... (33 replies)

Has anyone had a positive OR negative experience they can share with me please ? I am stuck on the fence with surgery decision and are desperately needing shared experiences of any kind. Thanks !!!

... Do a search for epiretinal membrane/macular pucker. That's what I was diagnosed with several years ago. Sometimes, if it really interfers with your vision it requires surgery called a vitrectomy to correct the problem, which is an outpatient procedure which is what I had. If the membrane is very thick like mine was, the procedure may have to be repeated to peel off remaining... (5 replies)
