In response to an earlier question about recovery after surgery for a detached retina, one member commented, "The bubble is pretty small now -- I can see around it, but NOTHING is clear at all. I can see images but no detail and can not read anything with that eye." This describes my situation exactly. I had a scleral buckle attached and vitrectomy with the vitreous humor replaced by a gas bubble. Is it common to have blurred vision after surgery for a detached retina? Can I expect it to clear up? What are the chances it might be permanent (as in a comment by another member)?
