I am 4 months into recovering from a vitrectomy due to multiple retinal tears and my vision is still pretty terrible. On my last visit a month or so ago I was told I would be sent to an optometrist to help live with my oil bubble when I go in next week. I know I have some lingering swelling of the interior retina due to fluid in the inner eye just prior to surgery however on the measuring machine I can read 20/40 oil bubble and all and keep being told I am doing well overall. It is all very confusing. Is there anyone out there with similar experiences.
