PPV for macular hole after a traumatic cataract surgery and 360^ angle recession
Dear Sir,

I have badly injured my eye (blunt trauma) 4 month ago. The hit caused a 360 angle recession, traumatic cataract (PCS) and a macular hole + a tear in the pupil...

I am now after the cataract surgery (PCIOL). The lens was sutured to the iris and the iris was also gone through pupilloplasty procedure.

But now comes the PPV for macular hole turn, where the gas bubble is a big concern. The doctors are afraid that the gas bubble will move forward and cause a sublocation of the lens and also increase the IOP dramatically (I am now on topical treatment with stable iop)

What is the solution to this problem? How can the surgeons overcome this challenge of a potentialy violent gas bubble?

Thank you

You need to discuss this with your surgeon.
