I had a vitrectomy and ILM peel to fix a macular hole 2 years ago,also had the 10 days face down and a gas bubble,although i don't have myopia,i am quite long sighted.
The hole has closed successfully and all the distortion is gone but i do have a slight blurry patch where the hole was,but i can live with that.
I have now developed a cataract and will be getting that removed in a few weeks time,i am a bit nervous about that but i know it has to be done.
Good luck with your op,i hope all goes well for you.
Your surgeon is correct.
Thanks Cathie, good luck with the cataract op. Hopefully, you have been through the worst bit and this will be the end!
I forgot to say that I also have a posterior stapyloma. I have read that this combined with my level of prescription and a macular hole do nit make for a successful outcome.
