... 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)
