... 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.

... By the way, you also asked about why the "wiggly/chopped" vision happens. Here's what I know: it has nothing to do with your bubble, and, unfortunately, it will remain even after the bubble has gone in 2-3 weeks (normal). I have had the wiggly vision for 3 months post-vitrectomy op without any signs of going down, but it may also depend on the severity of your RD (how far it... (8 replies)

But, that nagging little voice in my... (8 replies)
