Good vs. bad scar tissue
How does the doctor determine which scar tissue is good and which is bad after a vitrectomy? What is the difference between normal scar tissue you would expect from the lasering and PVR which is a dreaded complication? Can all eye MD recoginize the difference even if they are not retina specialists?

Your question is too complex to give a simple answser. If the scar is huge, deep or located in a bad place then removal can't be done. The best success is if the scar tissue is very small, very superficial and located remote from a critical part of the eye.

To determine if surgery would help ideally you would see a retina Eye MD although most general ophthalmologists can tell when surgery will definitely not help.
