postoperative floaters???/scleral buckle operation
I had my scleral buckle operation on my right eye 26 days ago. I was told that the operation was successful, however, I still see floaters (one day more, one day less) .
1. Is that normal after the scleral buckle operation?
2. Will they ever disappear or I should learn to live with them?
3. How can I know whether they may indicate a detachment or post operative condition?
I am only 35.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP AND SUPPORT. THANK YOU.

The floaters are natural to have after a SB-procedure following retinal detachment. They might deminish over time, but can remain indefinitely. A new detachment might only be picked up by the retina specialist, but if you were to develop new flashes or a 'shower" of new floaters, then seek immediate care.
