I’m not sure if this is even the right place to pose this as I’m very new to this forum site but it’s been very helpful in finding some information I need.
Five days ago I had Vitrectomy surgery after some bleeding that caused floaters and blurred vision, there was no rush for this to be done and I waited around 3 months, mainly because I’m only 30 and there was no retinal detachment, just discomfort.
The surgery went well and everything was cleared up in my left eye and I now have X4 drops per day in the effected eye, my only issue is I have no idea what the recovery time should be or when I will start to see improvements. My surgeon has gone away for 4 weeks so I don’t have a checkup until he’s back but my vision is at around 15% currently, only seeing rough shapes and very dimmed light. As I didn’t have any retinal detachment and the surgery was relatively quick I was expecting better results and I’m terrified that my eye isn’t healing at all.
Am I worrying too much too soon? I won’t know anything until 3 weeks time when my surgeon is back but any advise on any others who’ve had the same and how long it took before vision restored. My vision was no where near this bad pre-op and I’m worried it won’t heal.
Many thanks all, again, sorry if this is not placed in the right place, I’ve literally just signed up to this site.
