post vitrectomy

had cataract surgery on 11-6 and had anterior vitrectomy 11-26 due to retained particles.  Am on drops and  have a stitch that need removal and ever-so-slightly improvement in vision (20/50) which affects depth perception, reading and night vision.  Other eye has 20/20 vision following successful catarac surgery.  What can I expect and what is the procedure for removing stitch.  I return to Dr on 12-27.  Thanks, Jan

It all depends on how your eye looks specifically.  Once there is a complication during surgery, it no longer is a standard recovery period and only the surgeon who is examining your eyes could give you a realistic answer to how well you will heal and how long it's going to take to get there.  Unfortunately such complication do still happen despite our advances in technology but the majority end up doing well.  Close monitoring is important.
