... I had the saline solution and the doc says that the vitrous is starting to come back nicely. Your body returns the saline solution to the original vitreous. That is good. my operation was in March and I am also diabetic. It has taken this long to heal for me. My eye actually feels much better now. Before I could feel a pulling sensation and my eyelid was pulled up on that eye... (4 replies)

... Just an update. After exactly 2 month my bubble is finally gone. The vision did not improve though. Still blurry. Both doctors I went to are puzzled. With tiny cataract that developed it should not be that bad. One said that everyone is different. He also said that all he knows once cataract is removed everyone gets perfect vision. Pretty much clueless. Oh well. On the... (10 replies)
... Your case is probably more difficult than mine. I did not have macula detached. And most of retina was attached when they did my vitrectomy. So I know that my vision was sharp right before the surgery. ... (10 replies)

... Some people don't need to do the facedown thing...I didn't. I don't think most people do. But the recovery wasn't pleasant....And I developed the usual cataract from that surgery, but the cataract surgery was a breeze. Hardly any recovery needed. ... (3 replies)
... Hi Laura, Thanks for recounting your personal eye journey. And, hope that your retinas stay put! It just helps to open up sometimes as patients, and we know more and more about these things as each of us goes along in his/her journey in life, and we appreciate better and better the vision we have, whatever it may be, and the eye surgeons who, I think, are really god-sent. ...

... Also, it is sad to know that your scleral buckling damaged your sclera, and, hence, it had to be removed. Hope your retina stays put now with the silicone oil. All the best! ... (15 replies)

... Hey, thanks, for the info regarding the relative "non-criticality" of vitrectomy sx for macular RD, and the number of days required for the bubble to go away depending on the type of gas. Although I also had done a lot of reading on the web regarding this RD condition and the surgeries, this info was new to me. Good, your surgeon also seems to have very good credentials; the...

... I didn't know that one can wait this long after macular RD - I have always read that time is very critical. It's slightly strange that your air bubble hasn't completely gone away after 6 weeks. As a point of reference for the air bubble to go away completely, my right eye, with peripheral RD, took about 14-15 days , and the worse left eye, with macular RD, took full 3... (15 replies)

Also, there would have been no appreciable difference in my recovery or prognosis had I undergone surgery within 24 hours of my detachment, instead of waiting the 6 days as I did. ... (15 replies)
