... edure, I developed cataracts in both eyes. This necessitated cataract surgery by the same doctor. Not long after, long story short, I developed a tear in my left retina and my right retina became detached. I was scheduled for Vitrectomy surgery 2 days later. ... (0 replies)
... Thank you for your response. It gives me hope I won't see this annoying spot in my vision forever now. I guess it's better to be safe than sorry but I more so wonder if it was necessary just because she told me it looked like it healed itself. It makes me wonder if the doctors do this with the patient's best interest or if there's other factors going on. Thanks for your... (2 replies)
... Yes. I had this done 10 years ago due to a retinal tear and I also saw the spot you mention. It was scar tissue and caused by the laser. ... (2 replies)

... Yes, the victeromy surgery was deemed a success, as it resolved the initial problem. However, in doing so, it created another one, called macular edema. This caused my vision to deteriorate even more than before the surgery. My retina specialist kept saying be patient; that it would probably resolve on its own. It just continued to worsen. Therefore, I sought a second... (12 replies)
... I had vitrectomy surgery 2 yrs ago due to Macular Pucker. The surgeon removed four layers of macula that was attached to my retina, causing it to pull, bleed and swell. Operation was a success in that regard. However, my vision started deteriorating within months. When I finally left this retina specialist, the vision in that eye was 20/800+. After only 3.5 months at... (12 replies)
... Hi--Are you nearsighted? This sounds like myopic macular degeneration. It's different from the more common macular degeneration that is caused by aging. Myopic MD can happen to much younger people in their 20s and 30s although I was diagnosed with it when I was 55 (I'm 67 now) just in my left eye. When you're severely nearsighted your retina/macula can stretch and get very... (12 replies)
... hours to Guadalajara for surgery at a local retina clinic and drove back that evening. They had injected gas, and I was sold to sit and sleep facing forward for several weeks. ... (0 replies)
... I did wait about 10 months to let the eye settle after vitrectomy before cat surgery. Ask your retina specialist about this to see if it is the normal progression of a cataract. ... (3 replies)

... I had Vitrectomy for scar tissue on my macula, but no buckle or gas or anything special. ... (2 replies)
... I can tell you that my distortion has improved slightly through the year as my retina swelling improved slightly. My retina sp. says at this time my retina swelling will probably always remain at this increased thickness because it has been a year since Vitrectomy. ... (2 replies)
... I've had three operations to repair the retina in one eye. Initially it was torn but later became detached and scar tissue formed. The last op was 8 weeks ago and the vision, when I close my good eye, is noticeably tilted about 20 degrees from the horizontal. ... (2 replies)
... I have something similar, a retinal scar causing some distortion in vision. I had a flourescent angiogram to rule out bleeding and Dr said nothing could be done and come back in 6 months. ... (1 replies)
... I have been having some vision distortion and have been told I have a scar at the back of my right retina. This scar was noted previously, after I had vitreous collapse - both eyes- after having general anaesthetic (told no connection just a coincidence !) but no-one told me then, 3 yrs ago, or photographed it for comparison. Nor did I have any distortion before. It is... (1 replies)

... I know your posting about the retinal scar is quite old, but did the doctor ever determine what caused it? ... (3 replies)
... on the retina by the vitreous, which fails to fully detach from the retina, aren't I more vulnerable down the road for additional tears or a retinal detachment? ... (1 replies)
... Hello all, First let me say that I will be surprised if anyone knows what I am talking about. It's been 12 years since I had the surgery to "fix" this, but I am still curious. Let me start by saying that my eyes are the worst most docs have seen in a functioning person. I am too far gone to be a candidate for lasik anymore. I started wearing glasses the day after I got...
