... 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. However, the patches from the virectomy are there, so there is a limit to how much cataract surgery helped. I still have distortion... (3 replies)
... Oh my you had a vitrectomy? That is a way more invasive procedure than I had. I had laser surgery to seal the tear. I feel for you. My daughter told me the surgery you had requires being face down for a period of time. Did you have to do that? I googled images of this and I just cannot imagine. I am not much of a stomach sleeper anyway. I also saw where with a mucular... (3 replies)
... I feel your pain. I had surgery for a macular pucker June 2013 and was left with gray patches in my field of vision. I just had cat act surgery, which was fine, except I still have the gray patches. No one will tell me what they are or seems to care. They were not there before the virtrectomy. (3 replies)

... Hi Armstead, I had to have a vitrectomy for this problem, check all the risks before you get the injection, if they are not to great , it maybe worth a try instead of surgery. The surgery is a big deal, (I had to keep my head down for about two weeks) and then I had to have cataract surgery a year later, so if there's anyway this new drug will help the vitreous slip off the...

... what to look for if anything changed. Within two days things certainly started changing. He had me come in and I had a horseshoe shaped tear. The next day I had retina surgery that don't let them tell you doesn't hurt, cause it does! ... (3 replies)
... Just over 3 months ago I underwent a vitrectomy for a macular hole which apparently has worked. About 6 weeks later I had a detached retina vitrectomy op which came from the macular hole operation. The gas bubbles from both ops caused a large fast growing cataract. ... (0 replies)

... Firstly, you should see an optometrist soon. My guess is since things become more focused after you press your lower eyeball, the rays from far away objects must be presently focusing "behind" your retina (without pressing the eyeball and with your present prescription). After you press the eyeball, the eyeball bulges and elongates in the lens direction (like a football on its... (2 replies)
... ht of my left eye vision, and when I shine a light from the lower left of my eye, it's most noticeable and lights up similar to how all the blood vessels on your retina light up when you shine a light in your peripheral vision in a dark room. ... (0 replies)
... Hello Dr. MarinaBoat, Please have patience - it's a long answer, but has a silver lining! I have gone through a similar situation at similar ages - cataracts first, and then vitrectomy surgeries after retinal detachments (RD) for both eyes; however, I have none of your other eye conditions, but my RD's did cause mild to severe vision loss when they happened. So,... (3 replies)

Recent vitrectomy

... hello, I am a 55 year old general surgeon who had a vitrectomy this week for a detached retina, without obvious vision loss. I am recovering from that, with a sulfur gas bubble in place. I wanted very general thoughts on my prognosis. I have been very myopic since maybe age 6. I developed bilateral cataracts about six years ago, and had the r cataract replaced a year ago,...

... Darthy12, PVD is a natural process for most of us. So there is nothing to fear, really! I have gone through it, and so do millions of other people. As your doctor, perhaps, must have told you, as we age, the vitreous, inside the eyeball, slowly shrinks, and, hence, detaches itself from the retina, sometimes, creating floaters, which are just protein fibers which make up the...
