... 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)

... sree234: 1. Again, I am no doctor, so please take my words from a patient's viewpoint; I have learned these things, just like everybody else, I guess, by looking up on the internet, or medical books, and it certainly helps to self-educate in these matters - because it is YOUR eye! 2.
