pupil

After retina detachment surgery, my pupil has not come back to normal. It was not seen as enlarged for 6 months after surgery "because the dilation was always done." Once this was treated, the pupil did retreat to normal but only with the drops. If the pupil retreats to normal with the drops does this mean the muscle is not damaged or is it just the medication doing it? If the medication can be successful, can it also be successful in restoring the pupil to normal  How easy is it for the doctor to tell if the pupil is not going to recover on its own?

It may take months after RD surgery to determine if the pupil will recover normal size and shape and function. Use the searach feature. This has been discussed many times and recently.
