VVitrectomy via pars plana with silicone oil for repairing a Retina detachment See my other previous posts about if you want.7 to 8 months ago,still keep the oil ( for technical reasons,they want to do cataracts at the same time. Retina is atacched but iols are lacking - public health service)

Thank Goodness! Eye was bad enough for they decide putting oil , and  I only knew about other  procedures after the surgery Was informed first hand that I will have to undergone a second surgery to remove the oil the following day, by another patient at the waiting room.This new one scares me more,cos now I have something to lose, first time thing was so bad that all I wanted was the situation reaching an end.
